In 2002, I became an Internationally Certified Teacher of Kundalini Yoga (IKYTA) following the principles of Master Yogi Bhajan in 2002. The process of personal transformation began. I guess I wasn’t really satisfied with myself nor my life, but I didn’t know how to change everything. Yoga helped me make the change I was craving. Immediately after my initial training, I continued my Level II Advanced Teacher Training to deepen my knowledge of Kundalini yoga, asanas, yogic philosophy, and Ayurveda.

Kundalini guided and supported me. I began a conscious relationship with myself on my mat. Then in 2005, I became a mentor as a teacher trainer with Karta Singh (France) and advanced my level to a Professional Trainer (Level III) forming new yoga teachers, as well as leading Kundalini yoga classes and organizing retreats in Austria, Italy, France, and Greece.  

The postures of Kundalini gave me the ability to stop my thoughts briefly and to feel my physical blocks and tensions I had created. Thanks to Kundalini, I learned to be in the moment. I learned to be patient and to listen to my body. I no longer run away, nor do I feel like I jog through life. I learned to allow and love each part of me. Especially the parts I didn’t like.

Over time, my energy has become higher and more steady and consistent. I’ve learned to surf the waves whenever I face difficult situations in life. I no longer fear difficulties and obstacles because I learned that these challenges were just there to invite me to grow. I grew into a space so vast that tears, joy, laughter, and even pain are all good. They are all a part of the wonderful human experience called life. I’d love to invite you to learn to surf with me to find the joy inside of you. You’ll never regret it.
