About Me

CURRENT MISSION: Yoga teacher training (teacher in pranayama, yoga therapy and meditation) in Gokarna (october - january 2018) and in Thailand (February 2018) http://shreehariyoga.org

Namasté!

I reeeeeally love traveling and Yoga, thats one of the most important things for me. Yaaa, traveling... I guess that`s why all of us are here. :-P ... A lifelong journey to follow my Dharma, my spiritual way ...

Because sometimes I will get too sentimental if I can`t be on a journey, l try to find always alternative ways to travel. Like to organize a yoga ttc in Thailand. :-D ... I want to live happy, and I want to see others happy! I want to be always free and try to learn about spirituallity & life as much as I can.

I am a new Yoga Teacher, i studied 15 month Yoga Therapy in SVYASA in Bangalore, India (Post graduated diploma in yoga therapy) & I try to life Yoga around the Clock. ...

Also creativity is important for me and art. I am a photographer and retoucher and love to shoot beautiful things like nature and people. Photography is not only to show nice pictures, its also to show the truth, whats happening, to awake people, to let them see what`s going on in the world.
A view through the camera sometimes opens people`s eyes, to look closely, to begin to understand things...

I`m also looking for other photographers and filmmakers or other talented People, which are interested to do a documentary in india about spirituallity and also to teach kids in the Slums of Nairobi in Kenya.
Please contact me if you are interested in any.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I gave up everything in Germany and went to India to study 15month Yoga Theraphy.

Kenya: Staying 2 weeks in the slums to help a NGO. Everything is different there, City, Village, Slum... Going to Kenya is like a time travel, a feeling of going back to the roots.

Thailand: Yoga and Meditation, traveling without money. My experiance, money comes and goes, have trust in god! ... Oh I love the big Koh Chang and the little one in Thailand. Without much civilization and no cars you can do anything there. And in Chang Rai the rain forest and mountains and the different mountain villages with the different nice cultures ...

I love it to travel and see so much new things and get experience! Love the beautiful world!
