My enthusiasm for yoga, Indian philosophy and Sanskrit led me to study Indology and religious studies at the University of Heidelberg. Since 2004 I have been on my personal yoga path. In 2016 I started teaching the AYI method at the Ashtanga Yoga Institute Heidelberg. Meanwhile, I am a research assistant in the Haṭhapradīpikā project at the University of Marburg and am mainly working on my dissertation as part of this project. I am creating a critical edition of the Yogatattvabindu. This descriptive yoga textbook from the 16th - 18th centuries written by one Rāmacandra codifies 15 different yogas.
