You are not
From Architecture to Coaching - from Germany to Sri Lanka
I always liked to explore new things and new countries.
Sometimes it was easy and fun, sometimes difficult and challenging.
But it always did widen my awareness and taught me important lessons.
From Germany to Sri Lanka
Before starting my new life in Sri Lanka, I was an architect, dancer, dance teacher, choreographer and event show designer in Düsseldorf, Germany.
After mastering a special challenge in my life, I took a three months time-out and traveled through Asia, with the last stop being Sri Lanka.
Destiny told me to stay and since 2007 I'm deeply rooted in this beautiful country and in the warm embrace of my Sri Lankan family.
Life is a dancer and you are the dance.
- Eckhart Tolle

May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.
I guess that since I watched “The Little Lord Fauntleroy” – the “Harry Potter of his time – when I was 12 years old, my desire was to make the world a little bit better.
I believe in the idea, that we are all the creators of our own life, that happiness is a choice and that our souls are here, in this body and in this life, following their journey towards fulfillment.
Offering help to help yourself is my passion in coaching, yoga, tapping and meditation, underlined by the understanding of energy in your nutrition.
My favorite mantra in the version of Jivamukti Yoga, New York
Being a sustainability advocate, passionately helping Mother Earth by implementing the “refuse, re-use, recycle” technique wherever I can.
Having faith in the positive evolution of mankind through love and higher awareness.
Being “the drop in the ocean” with my work and trying to spread the light as far as possible.
Organizing wonderful dance events – to enjoy the moment with music and movement.
Every drop in the ocean counts.

My biggest Project
(So far... ;-)
Creating Niyagama House was a truly amazing experience. Two years of daily work until the first “guinnea pig”, a friend of mine stayed with us as our guest.
A powerful example for the power of thought – from the first little drawing to the first guests.
A wonderful experience of being connected with all – with my partner and co-creator Chaminda, all the helping hands, the Buddhist gentle smiles, the special energy of Niyagama House – and the help of our guardian angels.
Everything is created twice,
first in the mind and then in reality.

What more do I love?
Planting trees and find new ways to help street dogs in our neighbor-hood.
Keep on learning, exploring and traveling the world.
Testing new, yummy recipes for our restaurant.
The Indian Ocean and the tropical, wild nature in Sri Lanka.
Singing mantras while walking through our tea plantation.
Dancing until the the sun rises.
Growing my tribe of like-minded soul-sisters & brothers by walking my talk.
And…. using the yoga room just for myself :-))).
Love what you do: Do what you love.
