I have always been deeply fascinated by Music and sound.
Coming from a family with a classical musical background it took me a while to find my own musical path beyond traditional aesthetics and dogmas.
I took piano lessons as a child and learned classical guitar as an adolescent. After finishing school
I studied Musicology at the Cologne University for 5 years. (M.A.)
Since early adulthood I was part of various musical projects in Germany and Greece.
My main interest in Music is its transformational power. I value music mostly as a tool for personal, unique expression and transpersonal connection to a collective field or universal Source.
My musical expression as well as facilitation is always in service to that aim: getting closer to our natural Essence, to our true Self, and removing the blockages that we encounter on the way.
I facilitate singing circles as powerful transformational spaces, using a variety of approaches, from raw sound beyond or before Music to Melodies and Mantras from different backgrounds.
I offer Soundjourneys (one-on-one and in group settings) with Didgeridoo and other instruments that help to alter states of consciousness.
I perform in spaces and contexts that are in resonance with my work and values.
After getting first impressions about Yoga while traveling through India in the 1990s I started taking Hatha Yoga (Sampoorna Yoga) classes with Jutta Qu’ja Hartmann in the year 2000 at Cologne University, Germany, the place where I had grown up.
Having already 10 years of experience in Yoga practice I got certified for teaching at the Sivananda Kutir in Netala, Himalayas of India in 2010. In the following years until now i’ve been trying to keep myself continuously evolving through my own regular practice as well as various courses and trainings that i participate in. Over the years I was exposed to many different Yoga styles and influenced by various teachers, amongst them internationally renowned yogis, such as Simon Borg Olivier‘s Synergy Style and the rich teachings of Richard Freeman.
After completing 3 teacher trainings with Kristina Karitinou in between September 2014 and Jamuar 2016 I also teach Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
In my teaching I like to emphasize the cultivation of awareness, breathing and alignment, adjusting to the individual student’s needs.
In 2005 I was first initiated in the Vipassana meditation as taught by S.N.Goenka.
Also part of my path is to be a bridge between cultures, as I have been born into the german and the greek culture, carrying and embodying elements from of them. I feel this as just another angle to look at the various polarities as part of the way nature plays out. I feel deeply grateful for this sometimes also challenging gift.
Since 2018 I am based in Berlin, Germany, while regularly revisiting Greece.
I fluently speak German, Greek and English.
