INTRO

The philosophy behind…

Originally from Germany, I have travelled widely and lived in Japan and Thailand for 25 years of my life. Body movement (sport) has always been a part of my life. When I started to practise Yoga many years ago, I learned to connect my breath to my mind, my mind to my body. The world holistic made perfect sense. Self-exploration and curiosity led to one another until Ayurveda came into my life in the form of the THAI VEDIC holistic system.

I understood that there are many modalities of healing; by integrating and combining Yoga, Bodywork/Massage and the knowledge of Ayurveda we are equipped with powerful tools to help us live a much healthier, happier and more meaningful life. I m feeling extremely grateful to all my teachers for their guidance and compassion on this path. My passion is now to share this experience through my Yoga & Thai Style Massage sessions, in private lifestyle consultations and in workshops and retreats. 

YOGA

What does a Yoga
session look like?

I initiate you to the world of yoga so that you can find your path, at our own pace. In private or small group sessions, at your home or at my space, you can enjoy your practice with my gentle guidance.

It is about learning to work more skillfully with what you have. Alignment and release techniques will help you to feel relaxed, less limited and more in tune with your body and inner self. During the class, I will guide you with clear announcements through a sequence of movements (Asanas) that are a little challenging yet therapeutic. I will choose a topic for each class (in relation to the Ayurvedic 5 Element Theory) that will help you manifest your intention both physically, mentally and spiritually. Through the practice of Pranayama, Mantras and Meditation you will learn to unwind and to bring some moments of “magic” into your daily life.

Your benefits:

  • increased body awareness and a heightened sense of well being
  • a wider range of body movement
  • increased resistance to daily life situations (stress, worries etc…)
  • a feeling of lightness and happiness

Specifically in private sessions:

  • advice on how your personal yoga practice could help you remove specific doshic imbalances (that relate to the manifestation of a disease)
  • lifestyle and nutritional tools to complement your individual practice

Online Classes

Ayurveda

What does Ayurveda do for you?

Ayurveda is a holistic medical science that treats the person as a whole. Body, mind and spirit are treated as an interconnected system; when one part is out of balance it might affect the other part(s) and thus my aim is to help you stay in (or return to) a state of balance. The focus of this healing method is to guide you to heal yourself by activating your innate energy and restore balance.

During a consultation session, we can determine your predominant constitution, as well as trying to find out what causes an imbalance. This is a very individual approach, what works well for one person may not work at all for another. Based on this theory, I will help you with suggestions to optimize some habits in your daily life (this might even extend to your Yoga practice). “…an understanding of the Ayurvedic constitutional types helps us adapt yoga practices according to individual requirements” (David Frawley)

Your benefits:

  • Become aware of your Constitution/ Ayurvedic Body Type
  • Learn to know what suits your Constitution, what you should avoid
  • Know what kind of movement and exercise is best for you
  • Together we work on some strategies that may help you integrate new habits into your daily life
BODYWORK THERAPY

What is Thai-Style Massage – Yoga Therapy?

The combination of Yoga & Bodywork is often referred to as (Ayurvedic) Yoga Therapy. It enables the mind to transcend, to experience a form of deep healing. The aim of the practitioner is not to try to repair something but to remind your body about its innate ability to repair itself on two levels, a physical and a spiritual one.

Thai-Style Massage is an ancient healing touch based on Buddha s essential teaching of mindful living through Metta (loving-kindness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (joy) and Upekkha (equanimity). Thus it is essential for the therapist to create an environment of inner peace, quiet and comfort for both. Both the giver and the receiver are fully clothed, in comfortable outfits, the massage then takes place on a mat on the floor. The receiver is gently moved into different positions on the mat where the therapist is applying various forms of stretching, rolling, compression in a rhythmic and flowing movement. Often compared with “passive” yoga, breath and movement are aligned but the receiver is completely relaxed, all the work is done by the therapist.

What does a Thai-Style massage do for you?

 

The application of various methods allows a larger spectrum of healing than is possible with a “western” mind that focuses almost solely on removing the symptoms.

Through a combination of elements derived from Chinese medicine, Hata Yoga, fascia release, osteopathic principles as well as the concept of Yin & Yang a unique sequence can evolve whereby the giver and the receiver join in a “sacred dance”.

 

Your benefits:

  • relieves stress, tension & fatigue
  • stimulates circulation & restores vitality in the entire body
  • eliminates pain (sometimes more then 1 treatment is needed)
  • increases emotional well being
  • strengthens the immune system & specific organs
  • detoxification
  • promotes better sleep
