Yoga Bio

After obtaining my degree in business administration, I worked as a consultant in the IT sector and in management consulting.

Since 2008, I’ve been running the Yogazentrum Mödling together with Florian Reitlinger.
I am a certified Anusara® yoga instructor and study and teach in the tantric philosophy of Kashmir Shaivism.

Since 2014, I’ve been sharing my knowledge through concise instructions in the ORF’s Yogamagazin on ORF Sport+.

Since 2022, I’ve been operating a seminar farmhouse where I practice permaculture. My vision is to integrate yoga, as I learned in Anusara, into everyday life.

Weekly Class Schedule

Tuesday 5.30 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.

What do you love most about Anusara Yoga?

I am deeply drawn to Anusara’s unique blend of heart-opening themes combined with a keen focus on alignment principles. The practice not only strengthens and aligns my body but also fosters a profound connection between my mind, body, and spirit. Anusara’s emphasis on the celebration of the heart and the inherent goodness in all beings deeply resonates with me, making each session not just a physical exercise, but a transformative experience.

Why do you teach Anusara yoga?

Teaching Anusara allows me to share the profound benefits I’ve personally experienced with others. I’ve witnessed transformative changes in my students, both physically and emotionally, as they delve into the practice. Guiding them through the principles of alignment while connecting it with heart-centered themes is a deeply rewarding journey. I teach Anusara to be a part of that journey and to create a space where each student can discover their inner strength, grace, and true potential.

Why do you license with Anusara?

Licensing with Anusara Yoga ensures that I maintain the high standards and integrity associated with the practice. Being a part of the Anusara community means being connected to a global network of dedicated and passionate yogis who support and uplift each other. The continuous training and development opportunities provided by Anusara ensure that I stay updated, refined in my teaching skills, and deeply connected to the core philosophy and techniques of this transformative practice.
