Education Heike studied social work at the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences in Germany and graduated with a diploma.
Experience After that she worked in the youth welfare community service. There she was confronted with many distressing fates of children and it was her responsibility to improve the lives of these children. However, this could also mean separating them from their parents. With this stressful kind of work, it is important to keep the necessary distance and not to become personally involved. Here, her yoga practice helped her to stay and be at peace with herself. After moving to Singapore, she was no longer able to pursue her job and suddenly had plenty of time to intensify her yoga practice. She had to realize that yoga here is much more intense and physically more exhausting than she knew from Germany. But that all the more inspired her. Finally, she decided to complete this with a yoga teacher training. Now she has the opportunity to practice yoga herself and continue on her path and at the same time to share her love for yoga with others.
Skills Pilates, on the other hand, has always been her special passion. So she took the opportunity after the yoga teacher training to join the Pilates teacher training, too. Now she is happy to teach at Tirisula and hopes to reach many interested students.
