I am a 52-year-old father of two adult children and married to my wife for more than 25 years. YOGA found me since we moved from Germany to London in 2013. I had a major burnout and breakdown back in 2009 which ended in a serious car accident. My near-death experience (I was knocked out for a couple of minutes) and fact that I survived this accident without physical injuries changed my life!
I learned the lesson to slow down and to look after myself – I gradually lost more than 5 stones by changing my lifestyle and habits. After been made redundant in a very successful corporate IT Management position, I took the long-seeking opportunity to graduate as a traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher. I qualified at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram London in June 2019. This intense Teachers’ Training and a full month in seclusion changed my life. From practising yoga as a physical exercise I became a spiritual yogi and teacher who is passionate to share the 5,000-year-old yoga science and wisdom with lovely students and like-minded people regardless of their ethical, religious background or gender. I truly embrace ‘Unity in Diversity’!
