Loving kindness will become a real player in this new world. As Dr. Who from the British TV show once said: “Be loving if you can, be kind always!”, this might just become the mantra of a new world. If we all can agree on kindness as a the minimum courtesy of human interaction, we are all in for a great ride in a paradise on earth.
We believe, the skills needed in the new age, center around a certain set of human qualities, that we call the RADIANCE skills, those are:
The foundation. Physical, mental, financial stability and the understanding that this is important leads to a solid foundation on which a future can be built. This then is being filled with the other mentioned skills leading to the ability to reach into once own profound depth, sourcing solutions for any kind of situation – known as being resourceful.
Flexibility and open to new pathways. As stagnation brings decline, ability to adapt to the environment, is imperative for business and private success. Life is a constant play of compromises and changes, leading to the outcome that has been balances best amongst all interest.
Focus and dedication to the task on hand. Freedom from influences that distract and inherently aware, that all has its time and place. The ability to dedicate energy where it is needed most.
Our intelligence has been millions of years in the making. It is important to understand that we often make the mistake by judging intelligence by the ability to combine certain mathematical, graphical or language concepts into new form. However, as the mind can only construct on what it has available, intelligence would have to be measured by the ability to utilize what is available in memory in an optimized way. There is strong evidence, intelligence rises at higher level of available energy as well as with the least amount of obstruction.
Vitality born from a vibrant system, created by the right nutrition, sleep and utilization of the mind.
The ability to embrace conflict as opportunity for progress.
The level of inclusiveness
The ability to walk in another persons shoes, thus being able to add vantage points to views. This allows for more harmonious environments, leading to life success.

When I was 8 years old, my mother taught me a form of self hypnosis where I imagined myself, traveling through my body as a red blood cell. It was mesmerizing. What followed was a life long study of different topics in meditation and hypnosis. I also launched, operated and sold many high tech-tech startups which allows for a deep insight into the careful balancing act between corporate and human interest.

My first experience with yoga was at the age of nine, but it wasn’t until 2005 when I began to delve into more of the practice. I saw it as a great way to cultivate body awareness as it helped my surfing through dynamic strength, controlled breathing and flexibility. Over time, the practice deepened my subtle awareness and has kept me grounded while traveling and through the transitions of moving around the country. After moving to San Diego in 2013 my practice led me to the Soul Of Yoga’s Hatha Yoga teacher training to gain a deeper understanding of yoga and how I could share it. I now use the principles from Raja Yoga as the foundation for teaching a grounding and richly satisfying class.
