Before moving to Sri Lanka, my country of origin, I studied contemporary dance, yoga, political science and sociology in Germany, the country where I grew up.
My first formal Yoga Teacher Training was in 2007, held in Berlin. In the meantime, I studied extensively at several locations with many different teachers: the Krishnamarchaya Institute, in Mysore and Rishikesh, with David Swenson, Louisa Sear, Clive Sheridan, Ana Forrest, Sally Kempton, Sianna Sherman and others.
In 2015, Sri Yoga Shala came to life: a centre for yoga, meditation, movement, bodywork, arts and creativity which I opened together with my partner Mahendra and further developed with everyone who spend their time here.

After many years of training and practicing, with Patricia Thielemann in Berlin, Lara Baumann in London, Srimathy and Ravi in India, I now practice Ashtanga but mostly teach a strong vinyasa or power yoga style as well as restorative slow flow classes.
I learned about Vedic Chanting after I studied with R. Sriram in Germany, which led me to Chennai in South India where I studied for two years at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram with Menaka and T.K.V. Desikachar. I continued to spend time in India, teaching at the 106.1 Yoga Studio.
In my relentless fight for acknowledgement as an independent film producer, yoga is what gives me peace, stability and solace. At times of desparation, I have asked the vedas instead of google and studied the Upanishads.

My journey has been evolving since my early childhood. I have been dancing, teaching and performing oriental dances for 15 years. As I have developed my body awareness from different dances, contact improvisation, integral thai chi and other flow movement therapies, I slowly shifted to my yoga journey. First, I was connecting from the perspective of asanas, then I made an approach from ancient texts and philosophies during my university studies.
I have realized that the only person I can anchor in is myself. Yoga and meditation are a never ending self-discovery and an every day transformation. All of life is a constant spontaneous process, moments weaving new moments. We are co-creators in this never-ending work of art. Every time we invest our energy, we create a ripple that affects the whole consciousness.
Yoga is a way to find the connection to and stay in touch with your truest self and move the high vibe of unconditional love through each and every cell in your body. Yoga heals you and connects you to pure joy. It is meant for everybody and once you have started, you will feel the impact of yoga in your life.
My path in Yoga started with Ashtanga Vinyasa. The practice had an immediate effect on me, I quit my job as a lawyer did my formal Training and started to teach. In my classes my aim is to pass my belief in this practice that changed my life and I hope it can inspire others too.
