As an artist I work in performances with the human body, also through somatic practices. The path to Hatha Yoga lead me early on as a teenager through martial arts and Tai Chi. After yoga had accompanied me consistently through the years, it took me time to discover a book that would then pave my way: the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali. Through in-depth study of these I discovered the eightfold path of Yoga, as well as the styles in the tradition of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. I attend workshops with teachers of Ashtanga Vinyasa, and continue a gentle Hatha alongside advanced Iyengar practice, as I consider these complementary to the traditional Ashtanga series. Yoga for me is first and foremost India's most generous gift to humanity. Just like art, yoga is outer form and inner freedom, and like art, yoga means to me also to challenge oneself gently but constantly to move into ever new spaces, even in moments of silence, as a necessary step of evolution to ever more complexity. Yoga is integrity that I wish for all life.
