Born in Switzerland, I grew up in London, England, and began practising yoga 16 years ago after sustaining a repetitive strain injury from extended hours of computer work in the VFX industry. In 2005 a work transfer opportunity brought me to New York City, where I balanced freelancing in film & TV with teaching yoga and meditation.
I completed my basic teacher training at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York in 2011 and intermediate level training in 2013. In 2015 I became an Integral certified meditation teacher. I am also qualified to teach Kidding Around Yoga for children, Prenatal Yoga, Raja Yoga philosophy, and Stress Management. I am registered RYT500 with the Yoga Alliance.
In 2016 I moved to Rome, Italy, went back to school to learn Italian, and also attained a TEFL certificate to teach English.
The Coronavirus pandemic forced many yoga studios to close so in 2020 I moved all my teaching online, and have been able to reconnect with friends and family around the world.
