About Me

CURRENT MISSION: Post Gratuated Diploma in Yoga Theraphy

I stay at the SVYASA Campus in Bangalore and can not host during this time.

Namasté!

I reeeeeally love traveling and Yoga, thats one of the most important things for me. I gues that`s why all of us are here. :-P ... I travel also to find my "home" and follow my Dharma, my spirituel way with my heart ...

Sometimes I will get very sentimental if I can`t be on a journey.
So I will try to find my alternative way to live happy, with a lot of time to travel and learn as much I can.

I am a new Yoga Teacher and I try to life Yoga around the Clock. ...
But I´m also a photographer and retoucher and love to shoot nature and people.
For me photography is not only to show nice pictures, its also to show the brutal truth, to awake people, let them see what`s going on in the world.
A few through the camera can sometimes opens people`s eyes, to look closely, to begin to understand things...

I`m also looking for other photographers or other talented People, which are interested to teach kids in the Slums of Nairobi in Kenya.
Please contact me if you are interested.

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” *Mahatma Gandhi

PHILOSOPHY

... don't try to convince me of something, but you could give me a clue... ;-)

I will find out my aim, my way and my country to life and self - realization.

I also like the swahili way of saying to live "pole pole" (slowly slowly) & "hakuna matata (no worrys) :)

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!
