About myself

puckipicBorn in 1958 in Hamburg, Germany, I am presently living in Knynsa, South Africa.

I hold a BSc diploma in Microbiology from Wits University and  am a certified Sivananda Hatha Yoga teacher since 2005, EFYTA (European Federation of Yoga Teachers Association) I am teaching individuals or small groups from my home in Knysna.  Since 2005 I have visited overseas workshops anually, completing among other a Reiki and a marma massage course, as well as an advanced yoga teachers training course in 2007 with particular focus on Hatha Yoga as well as Vedanta philosophy.

Other than managing a guest house in Knysna, I am currently busy in my 2nd year Zen Shiatsu training (Japanese acupressure massage), am very interested in alternative healing methods,Qigong and nutrition, and am a Zen student with the Knysna Sangha. I am married for 28+ years  now and have 2 adult sons.

Having travelled widely in Europe, the US and Canada, and Southern Africa over these past years, my vision has always been to visit India, to experience eastern culture and spirituality. In September 2009 I finally was able to make this dream come true – some of our experiences along this unfolding journey can be seen here.
