About Me

I like to see life from different perspective. I have a good sense of humor, dark though, and always with a smile on my face. Straight to the point and try to be positive most of the time.

Living a yogic life im vegetarian and don't drink alcohol so i can not inform you about our well known beers. Anyhow i know the places if you would like to drink some :-)

I try to live as ethical and biological as possible. I do my best not to follow the fashion of consumption and try to spread the words as much as possible!


it's not what happens to you that upsets you, it's what you THINK about what's happened to you...

I don't believe in mistakes, its all about choices . You can call it a mistake but remember this, it is what you call a mistake that makes what you are now at this moment...
So you can blame it on a mistake or you can make a new choice and change!

Life is about sharing, whether it's about talks, money, war or love. Everything is impermanent our goal is realization...

"Be the change you want to see in the world..."
~ Mahatma Gandhi ~

Teach, Learn, Share

Yoga and meditation teacher, I’m happy to give a class.
I love to share all kinds of ideas and try to give positive energy.
Being kind of a philosopher its one of my passion to have conversations and thereby get to know myself step by step. Therefore i love to share ideas and learn all the time what you can teach me.
