How I got here

As an economist and a former businesswoman, my spiritual path took some slightly atypical turns.
I am a pretty wholehearted person, so when I was in business life and marketing I completely focused on the material world, and when - due to some changes in my life I quit – I thought living a spiritual life would be my destiny.
I moved to another country and decided to live a life of passion, and started working as a scuba diving instructor. Scuba diving was my long time hobby and my only shelter from “reality” where I felt that everything was in the right place and I was united with the nature and all the creatures with which we share this planet. It was amazing to have a daily activity – also called as work ☺ - where you have the chance to be physically active, share your knowledge about substantial matters with people from many countries, age groups, interests etc, and be a real part of the nature and through this have a better understanding of our planet – and all this on a daily basis! I quickly understood what happiness and being present and being in a flow means!
In the meantime – mainly for social reasons – I started practicing yoga in a local club. It was the second life altering experience of the year, as I realized that you do not have to get wet in order to sense the union. Wow, what else could I be expecting from life?
I immediately decided to do something about it and share my experience with others.
Through a coincidence (now I would call it luck) I met Carl Massy and the World’s Biggest Gym. His personality and the strategically developed life coaching programs immediately impressed me, and I decided to go for the Life Coach Training.
And now, here I am, on my island, building my business based on my passion, my knowledge and the balance regained.
I am organizing yoga retreats in Mallorca with internationally acknowledged teachers. I am working on giving as many extras to the retreats as possible: beside the utter yoga programs I put an emphasis on the healthy food, and provide a Food Workshop.
I have also developed an introductory Life Coaching workshop, where the guests have a chance to get some insight in the process of life coaching.
I have some great combinations in my head, so be prepared to hear from my special retreats in the future!
In my free time I teach people how to dive.
