I grew up in Switzerland with a love for water sports and snow activities. As a masters graduate in sport management, I was on the corporate path until my life was turned upside down. I was diagnosed in late 2016 with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, the big cancer bomb that changed my life. I was put through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy that challenged not only my physical body but my mental strength.
Through this time of my life I was determined to stay strong both physically and mentally. I had big dreams and nothing was going to stop me achieving them. Yoga was a tool that really helped me through this time. A slow practice on some days to keep my body moving and a lot of meditation and mindfulness to help me stay grounded, and get through the tough treatment.
Four months after my last treatment, I headed to Aruba where I did my first teacher training with Rachel Brathen and Lara Heimann in late 2017. What an experience! A life changing month that set me on the path I am on today. I travelled for the past 18+ months as a yoga teacher, teaching and learning more every day as I journeyed around the world. This travel time has expanded my knowledge in so many ways. I was not only learning from world renowned teachers, I am exploring different styles of yoga and evolving my teaching skills, my knowledge, my personal practice and so much more each day. Every day I learn more about myself and it’s one hell of a journey.
