About Me

There is nothing permanent except change.

Heraclitus

… and change does not have to be a bad thing.

I was born in 1985 in Sokolovka (Kasachstan) and grew up in Bavaria. After studying engineering in Dresden (Saxony), I moved to Berlin in 2014 to work as an aerospace engineer.

In addition to practicing yoga since my teens, I have engaged in mindfulness practice and non-violent communication, as developed by Marshall Rosenberg. I could successfully deploy this knowledge in my daily work and in workplace trainings.

After taking a long, hard look at my life during the Covid-pandemic, I decided at the beginning of 2021 to change careers and work full-time with people, rather than on the side. Since then I’m freelancing as a mindfulness teacher and am currently in the certification process with the Institute of Mindfulness. Additionally I am currently training as a psychotherapist (non-medical practitioner) at Paracelsus School Berlin and am doing an advanced training in non-violent communication.
