I had my first yoga class in 2005 in México City. My first Yoga teacher was following the lineage of Donna Holleman in the Iyengar style. I was fortunate to study and visit Donna in Italy in 2008. This experience help to dive more into my practice and planted interest and curiosity for visiting India. I traveled to Mysore, India, that same year, where I was able to further deepen my practice at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Institute with Sharath Jois. Since then Ashtanga became my main practice and a big part of my life.

I’ve kept visiting India in search of new inspirations and experiences. I practiced with Rolf Naujokat and other teachers in Goa.

In 2012 I started practicing under the guidance of Matthew and Carla Vollmer in Berlin, who became very important and inspiring teachers.

I became a teacher at Yoga school Berlin in 2010. Since 2017 I’ve been running the Mysore Program at Yoga School Berlin.

For me this practice has become my home and the place where I encounter myself to see where I am standing. This practice is the sacred place where I go and talk to myself. I feel grateful to have the experience to share this method with more people.
