ABOUT

ME

Life is a beautiful experience, I like to share my joy for it.

I started living my passion for martial arts when I was twelve years old in 1999. My first teacher with whom I trained for the next 16 years mainly taught me Wing Chun, Eskrima and Tai Chi at SKEMA Energy and Martial Arts School. To strenghen and stretch the muscles and prepare the mind for the martial arts training we would practice Hatha Yoga, Qi Gong and Wu Shu. We also looked at how to relaxe and massage the body. After 14 years of training I started teaching Wu Shu at the same martial arts school while I got my master’s degree at the pedagogic university of Zurich in 2014. My thesis looked at the effects of martial arts on attention. The newly gained insights on the science behind the effects of martial arts, yoga and meditation motivated me to dive deeper into the experience of consciousness.

After having worked as a special education teacher in a children’s psychiatric clinic for some time I sold all my belongings and went on a three years journey through South-East Asia to learn from others, deepen my practice and further develop my pedagogy with students I met on the way. 

In the Philippines, on Palawan, I studied with Pi Villaraza & Serena Olsen, the founders of Innerdance, El Kalinado, the founder of Emotional Reprogram and Imana Lightweb, a traveling Reiki and singing bowl master. I could refine my massage and reiki skills and also facilitate healing processes at the yoga and raw food retreat center Bahay Kalipay. After those three years I founded YouIWe in October 2018 and have since been teaching yoga, holding space for innerdance and giving ThaiYogaMassages in Switzerland.

 

My calling went a different way. I listened and opened a private secundary school in Switzerland in summer 2020 (www.laebensschuel.ch). Next to learning the regular subjects, the teenagers train martial arts, yoga and meditation. These are central stones to the pedagogy that aims to connect the students to themselves and help them find their purpose in life.


As a principle I don't have so much time and energy to teach or hold space anymore, but every now and then I make space and time for a private session and once a year I hold the energy school, where I share what I can, so others can hold space for more of us to grow and heal.

In the meantime I had the honor to receive the Reiki Master Initiation and trained with Elliott Saxby to learn Kundalini Bodywork from him. His teachings are the clearest and most wholesome I've seen on this planet so far and I am grateful and happy to call him my friend.

Thank you for your interest and reading this far. If you feel called to ask a question or join the energy school or being signed up in my private groups for innerdance sessions please contact me, you will find me easy to talk to.

All the best, much blessings, trust and love on your way.
