I attended the first yoga classes during my studies, but the practice only became a part of my life after my stay in India. During the 6 years there I was able to spend several months in different ashrams, which is why the philosophy and cultural aspects of yoga have always been in the foreground for me.

My first Ashtanga teacher was Yamini Muthanna, who had studied in the Mysore tradition from BNS Iyengar, so he was also my first teacher in Mysore. An important part of the trip were various long-term trainings at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, where I was able to specialize in Vedic Chanting, among other things.

In the spring of 2018, I received authorization from my main teacher, R. Sharath Jois. Since I have benefited incredibly from his knowledge and experience, I try to organize my lessons in his interest. After many years in Berlin, I am now looking forward to getting to know and accompanying the students in the Ashtanga yoga studio in Freiburg.

Yoga teacher certified by Lino Miele, AYRI, qualified biologist, naturopath with a focus on osteopathy
I started to practice yoga in 2003 and for 3 years I have been practicing different styles of yoga with different teachers. In 2006 I came into contact with   Ashtanga Yoga at a yoga conference and found the right method   for myself. I love the dynamic flow and sheer beauty of this practice and was able to experience the effectiveness for myself.
Not only my yoga experience but also my knowledge as an osteopath flow into my lessons. It is important to me to respect the individual limits of each body and to show a path to health and healing.

In 2013 I founded Ashtanga Yoga Basel to create a place where traditional knowledge can be passed on. In the past few years we have been able to win almost all known senior teachers for seminars and learn from the intensive exchange with them.

In 2006 I encountered yoga in the form of the sun salutation during my stay in Brazil. I completed my training as a yoga teacher, children's yoga teacher and yoga therapy at the Yoga Academy Freiburg in 2012. Inspired by my own Ashtanga practice, I completed a one-year teacher training course with Andrea Lutz in Berlin in 2013.
My son actually brought me to Ashtanga Yoga, which I started to practice in 2011. By offering childcare, I was able to practice yoga three times a week without any organizational stress. It quickly turned out that this yoga system corresponds exactly to my type and that it gives me access to a deep, authentic relationship with myself. Since then I have been practicing every day and am very grateful to have found professional guidance and support in Miriam Schlotter. Various workshops and training courses with Susanna Finocchi (Copenhagen) and Jens Bache, Andrea Lutz, Manju Pattabhi Jois (son of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) and Saraswathi Jois (daughter of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) enrich me on my way of traditional Ashtanga Yoga .
In addition to my personal Ashtanga practice, I regularly teach yoga in very different forms. Therapeutic yoga in individual sessions (room for yoga and meditation), yoga with people with mental disabilities (Caritas), children's yoga (Kinderladen e.V.), Hatha Yoga (Yoga Academy, Fitness Palast Bad Krozingen), and Vinyasa Yoga (Soma Yoga)
I am happy to pass on the diversity and diversity of Ashtanga Yoga in the Ashtanga Yogastudio Freiburg.

After giving birth to my second child in 2011 I happened to get in touch with Ashtanga yoga in Egypt and I was instantly enthusiastic about learning more about the practice. Back in Freiburg I started practicing with Miriam and Katharina and thus gradually learned the sequence of asana of the first series. Because Ashtanga yoga is a mixture of relaxation, movement, dynamics, breathing and meditation my life has slowly been transformed and after two years of parental leave I started turning meditation and movement into a living. Since 2013 I have been teaching ashtanga yoga in Freiburg and since 2014 I am part of the Ashtanga Yoga Freiburg team.     

I am looking forward to going this fascinating Ashtanga yoga path with you and getting to know you on the mat!
