Her yoga style (Ahimsa Yoga) represents a mix of three most influential schools of yoga in the world: Iyengar, Ashtanga and Jivamukti Yoga. She teaches traditional yoga techniques and combining them with Indian philosophy of nonviolence. On the path to self-realization, following yamas and niyamas as ethical guidelines for living is crucial, she thinks. It includes compassion, tolerance, acceptance, patience and the interconnection of all beings.
Her classes are thematically designed and adapted to a wider range of people, as much as to those who have a specific exercise goal. They consist of asanas, pranayama and relaxation techniques as well as a theoretical reflection on philosophical and anatomical aspects of yoga practice.

Yoga should be practiced everywhere and all the time is her motto.
