“I am not a Yogi. I study Yoga. It is a form of orthodox philosophy from India. It is not a religion. Philosophy is the search for truth. I am interested in Universal truth. I find it in mathematics. It expresses itself in the Flower of Life"

Marketing & Business Consultant
At the age of 16, I was prescribed yoga as part of a holistic method to treat severe panic attacks. The panic attacks quickly ceased but my relationship with yoga only continued to grow. Yoga has shown me how to calm my excited and ever-curious mind, to relax and find peace in the presence. In 2011, I met Nathalie and Andreas in Liberia. Nathalie introduced me to the traditional Ashtanga yoga practice, and I have forever been hooked. I am so grateful for the opportunities I have had to learn from and teach with Nathalie. Being a part of this amazing dream fills me with light and love.
