My outer journey
Hello dear visitor, welcome! My name is Stephanie. Would you like to get to know me better and find out more about me and my path? Then read on here: 

I was born in 1982 in the small half-timbered house town of Höxter in North Rhine-Westphalia. After finishing school, I studied psychology and worked for four years as a psychologist for Caritas as a family and life counselor in the Allgäu region. As a sideline, I trained as a yoga teacher for two years. I have now been teaching yoga classes for adults and children in group and individual sessions for around ten years. I have now developed my own style and am always full of gratitude that I get to do what I love.
Since December 2015, I have also been working as a lecturer at the European Academy for Ayurveda in Birstein. I helped set up the meditation teacher training course there and am also increasingly teaching seminars on psychology and Ayurveda. I completed a 3-year training course at the academy to become a psychological Ayurveda therapist. I am also a budding yoga therapist and started studying Ayurvedic medicine in 2019. I am also an author and musician. 
All my experiences along the way have led to my work combining all my knowledge from the fields of yoga, Ayurveda, meditation, psychotherapy, personal development and healing into a holistic approach. I look forward to getting to know you and being able to accompany and inspire you on your heart's journey.

My inner journey
Until 2011, I led a fairly normal life. I had a great job and was in a long-term relationship. Although everything in my life was fine on the outside, I knew deep down that something else was waiting for me. 
In 2011, I received a strong inner call from my heart that could not be ignored. I knew then that a life cycle was coming to an end and that it was important for me and my future path to follow this call. In the time that followed, I let go of everything and went to Mexico for a year. There, the voice of my heart unfolded the path step by step. During my time in Mexico, I was able to learn a lot from the ancient Mayan and Aztec traditions, among other things. The deep learning experiences I had during this intensive time were of great importance for my future path. However, I would only understand the wider context of my experiences later in India. 
I initially returned to Germany for a short time in January 2013. But in August of the same year, my path took me to India for another five months. My spiritual teachers Agastya Rishi and Lubamitra came into my life there. The inner guidance that I had already perceived in Mexico was not imaginary and was given a name. Since October 2013, my path from the spiritual world has been guided via the Palm Leaf Library in India. 
In January 2014, after returning from India, I opened the Yoga and Siddha Center in Markdorf on Lake Constance in May 2014. 
On November 19, 2019, following a message from the Palm Leaf Libraries, I embarked on a 2.5-month journey through Europe, during which I was able to travel to 13 countries within 2.5 months. I returned from this trip at the end of January 2020. During this deep time, full of intense experiences that still move me deeply today, the impulse for another book arose to share the experiences with people. Writing this book is currently one of my tasks.
