My strengths are: great Ayurveda knowledge and Ayurveda experience, I am sensitive and I have a  good knowledge of human nature, meanwhile a lot of life experience, I am_cc781905-5cde-6194-bb3b58cf58d_badunderstanding and a good listener.

I am brave and faithful and interested in spiritual advancement.

I have been living with my family in Au in the beautiful St. Gallen Rhine Valley for several years.
I also run my Ayurveda practice here.

Ayurveda has become my life.
With Ayurveda I have my severe burnout/exhaustion depression, 
that paralyzed me for about 5 years.

My breakdown back then was a very drastic, healing and instructive experience for me.

Torn from life completely, simply paralyzed, for several years.

Time suddenly stood still for me. 

My soul was forcing my body to take a long break in a very brutal way and I was forced to focus solely on myself and my life. 

In this very difficult and dark time for me, I found Ayurveda and that was my salvation!

Today I live more consciously, happier, more mindfully and healthier than before.
I have learned to set healthy boundaries and to listen to myself and my feelings.
