Teaching since: 2006
I am a nurse, midwife, artist, painter, photographer and yogi from Namibia who has the Namibian desserts as her playground.
My husband introduced me to yoga in 1999. At first I would practice at home or attend classes on my travels. After I obtained my Yoga certification in 2006 I started teaching regularly from my studio at home.
At first the physical asana practice drew me in. I was always active and went to the gyms, did aerobics, ran half marathons, became a black belt in kickboxing and even did a brief stint in motocross racing. Although I enjoyed all these activities, I was prone to injury and was thus drawn to a practice that was far more wholistic namely yoga. Today Yoga is far more than just the physical practice although I still enjoy it immensely. I consider Yoga a mood tonic. I have found it lifts my mood every time. Some days are harder than others and when I’m feeling down or sad Yoga always makes me feel better. I have also found it extremely important in calming and grounding me. I am hyperactive and tend to multitask, so finding time to simply sit and breath has been perfect in connecting the physical with the mental and spiritual sides of my life.
I teach Yin Yoga, Vinyasa, Prenatal yoga and Power Yoga. I opened my own studio in September 2016 (Urban Zen).
