acrobatics and even more yoga. When I came back I did several massage courses
and studied for 4 years at the Iokai Shiatsu school with Kazunori Sasaki. Later I went
to India for half a year to study yoga.
I am an Ayurvedic Yoga Massage therapist, Yoga teacher and artist.
My Path of Massage and Yoga started during travelling. The different surroundings and cultures inspired me and gave me an urge to connect in a different, more conscious way with myself, others and my surroundings.
