ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
At the age of 12, my mum wasn’t able to attend a wholegrain cooking course that she had booked, so she sent me instead. The food we learned to prepare was far from delicious, however it opened my eyes to the world of healthy nutrition.
At the age of 14, I prepared talks on pesticides and toxins in food, together with a school teacher, and my interest in healthy, delicious and nurturing food has stayed with me ever since.
When I learned about my HIV-infection, I started to look closer into how the immune system works and since 70-80% of the entire immune system is located in the gut, I felt the need to dig much deeper to truly understand how to improve my health and well-being.
I started intensifying my Yoga practice and later ran a Yoga retreat center in Morocco. I trained in life-coaching and hypnosis therapy and I was lucky enough to learn a huge amount more about food, the gut and the immune system as well as hormonal and neurotransmitter systems – from my teachers Gustav Jirikowski and Hartmut Tulaszewski.
Since 2011, I’ve been teaching nutrition therapy at a naturopathy school and have helped hundreds of people to significantly improve their well-being. Even after more than 13 years of working in the fields of lifestyle, yoga, mindset and nutrition, I am deeply touched whenever I hear clients telling me how their sleep or mood has improved; how they can walk, sing, or run better; how their digestion has normalised so that they can participate in social life again; how the pain in their joints has disappeared; how allergies have disappeared; how they’ve lost 15 kilos; how their focus and memory has improved or how they generally feel lighter, more energetic and feel a greater joy in their daily life. I love my work for the positive effects it brings and at the same time, I try to infuse it with a good amount of playfulness and fun.
