Welcome to Being Me,
I am very excited to share my insights, knowledge, and lifestyle around psychology, nutrition, and yoga with you. Let’s explore the world and our self. My blog is for everyone who is interested in getting a better understanding of their selves, what makes us feel good and how we can implement that in our lives.
I intend to break stereotypes many people have about psychology, yoga, and nutrition. I want to show you how to apply and combine concepts of these fields to our modern way of life in order to create your own understanding of what ‘Being Me’ means. You’ll find all kinds of posts here. From thoughts, which are a little deeper to simple ideas, recipes, pictures, and videos. I love both the complexity of life, as well as the simple things.
I am a native German, lived in Tel Aviv for 8 years and just moved back to Hamburg. Since many years I have been interested in the connection between mind and body and how it influences our being. I made myself my own case study. Which was difficult at first, as I was not able to comprehend the complexity of my self, but slowly I managed to grasp a deeper understanding of my being.
My interest in people and health motivated me to do my first degree in Psychology, with a minor in Government. In 2011 I graduated from the Interdisciplinary Center, Herzlyia, Israel with a bachelor in both disciplinary specializations and continued my studies right after in London, graduating with a Masters in War & Psychiatry from King’s College in 2012.
Throughout my post-graduate-travels in Sri Lanka and Australia I realized that I would like to get a deep understanding of the human body and its relation with the mind. This led me to do a yoga teacher certification and a nutritional counseling course. Since May 2013 I am a certified Ashtanga Yoga teacher and I finished my Psychology Coach certification just a year after. I am a certified 500hr yoga teacher by the Yoga alliance. Learning and experience are extremely important to me, so I am always looking to attend different courses with great teachers. In December 2015 I received a 40hr teacher training from David Swenson, in January ’16 I attended a yoga anatomy training with Gary Carter and deepened my Ashtanga yoga knowledge and practice in a retreat in India with Mark Robberds and Laruga Glaser.
The holistic variety of my studies and experiences give me the tools to work on all levels of our human being. I believe that complete health and well-being can only be achieved by looking at a person as a whole, as one entity made up of different units.
I hope that I can inspire you to allow yourself to be all you are, get to know yourself, grow, and be content with what is.
Have an amazing day,
