During my Environmental Science studies at the ETH Zürich life brought me repeatedly into situations where my worldview and my self-perception got challenged. Among these situations I had in 1997 a health problem, a benign bone tumor inside my hip joint, which suddenly challenged my self-image as a young, healthy sportsman and raised the question: "Who am I at all, if I can't move anymore, can't run around and play soccer or go mountaineering?" As difficult this situation was at that moment, it also triggered my curiosity. What is at the core of ourselves and the things in the world? Who am "I"? This curiosity and intuitive feeling that told me softly but clearly: "That can't be it, there must be more between heaven and earth…" led me to explore the inner worlds with teacher plants and eventually it led me to Yoga and to meditation. In the same way you learn to explore and understand the outside world at the ETH, there is a rich and vast set of teachings and techniques in the Indo-Tibetan wisdom traditions to explore and understand the inner worlds. That fascinated me, that was my thing! And since I first sat down on a Yoga mat in Vancouver 2002, I never stopped practicing, exploring and questioning. Ever since, small parts and pieces have come together to form a bigger picture about who I am and what a human life can be.

With my first Yoga Teacher Training in 2007 this hobby of mine became my profession. Today I feel really blessed and grateful to be able to walk on the Yoga path and to share it with interested people around the world. The Yoga path, which is a path that brings you closer to who you really are, brings healing and transformation to the core of our being.
