Here you learn more about me


How I got into nude yoga:


I owe so much to yoga and nude yoga. Here, I would like to ​share with you my way to yoga and my understanding of nude yoga. ​

Since my childhood I have been searching for self-discovery and authenticity! I always thought it would be best to follow this yoga path alone, and for me that meant practicing all those years of hatha yoga on the mat. ​All this practice let me become very strong and agile, but my mind is still restless and constantly searching for something new, better and more!

​It is the same for many people I know: Always searching for more, for something better. Consequently, they live with a feeling of permanent shortcoming instead of realizing that fullness has actually been there for a long time, ready to be acknowledged and lived. ​In other words: I always compared myself, aspiring to be able to do more asanas, be more agile, fitter and ​so forth. But Yoga tells us again and again:

How I got into yoga:

My first encounter with yoga was at a center for further education in a regular Hatha yoga class. I was 16 years old at that time and just wanted to try it out - but there was more to it, much more! My favorite part was always the relaxation at the end of class, just lying there and not having to do anything but relaxing and clearing my mind. I had never had any problems with that, on the contrary, I felt protected and well looked after.

​Through the many fears I had to endure at home due to my father's mentally illness, I looked for a place of refuge. By developing an eating disorder, I found something to hold onto. But Yoga gave me a place to breathe and the strength to continue living my life and to achieve the goals I had.

I felt more than great through both for several years, but over the years I slipped off my path without consciously wanting to! It was a subtle process with ups and downs! But I am a master of what it takes to ride such waves! I would say of myself that I get back up like a tumbler toy!

After my technical college entrance qualification I underwent the training to ​become a ​qualified nurse which fulfilled me very much, since I loved to help others. I ​received appreciation and credit and above all it gave me the ​perspective that other people are off even worse than me. But, the situation at home ​grew worse and worse:

My father became an alcoholic and had suicidal thoughts, and I sank deeper and deeper into a black hole.


I had to ​adapt my ways to leading a physically and mentally healthy and balanced life.

This is what I want to give you on your spiritual path:

I stand by my past for which I am not to blame, but I take responsibility for what happens in the future, and with my homepage I would like to give you all my knowledge, skills and my numerous life experiences made through this difficult time and bring you closer to all the richness of yoga.


Yoga means for me "freedom in doing, thinking and acting,


and not dogmatically following any gurus", because the real art of yoga is to live your life happily and content, not to give up even in difficult situations and to have trust in something higher again and again. Another little tip from me: If you really feel up shit crrek without a paddle at times; close your eyes, breathe as well as you can and trust in the best that will come. Life is just and never leads you astray, only you can do it yourself!

What are you expecting in my nude yoga class?

On my homepage you will find many videos with detailed instructions, because I attach great importance to practicing correctly and healthy.

It is important that you find your own yoga practice without dogmatically following a certain yoga style just because it might be trendy! Just find again desire and fun to move, to breathe and to laugh and then your energy flows also in your body.


This makes you healthy, balanced, calm and happy.


You will find short and long sequences for beginners as well as for advanced yogis! My classes are based on Vinyasa Yoga, but also on fitness elements that support the yoga practice very well. The session are therefore, also very well suitable for athletes and professional athletes.

Nude Yoga Video "The Dancer" over the roofs of Bangkok

Here I show you the dancer above the roofs of Bangkok.

The dancer - Natarajasana - is a balancing position on one leg and at the same time a back bend in which all deep back muscles are very active.

The "naked" dancer is in this sense of enhanced intensity. Because in the sense of yoga you don't actually possess anything, in reality, you are completely naked, but also pure and complete as you are. And THAT's how you have to try to find your balance.

The dancer is also called the "Dancing Shiva". Shiva is Nataraja, the cosmic dancer who creates, sustains and dissolves the world.

You have to try  to find YOUR inner balance,  your harmony in life."

This is what yoga is about and this is also the deeper meaning of this asana.

Everything comes, is present and ​passes - nothing in this world is permanent. As a yogi, the world with all its ups and downs is like a divine dance ​you are joining in. Full of joy, but in the certainty that it is just a dance...
