Kathrin grew up in the beautiful Austrian countryside, which laid the foundation for Kathrin’s strong connection to mother nature. To live in harmony with nature and to do as little harm as possible has always been a major priority for her. That led her to stop eating meat at age 14 and later on in her life turn to veganism. Along with that she developed the interest to understand where our food comes from, how it is produced and what our body really needs.


Having experimented with different nutritional systems for more than 10 years, she came in touch with Ayurveda during her first trip to India in 2007. The core principle of Ayurveda is to understand your own nature and to live in harmony with it. This very individualized approach of Ayurveda deeply resonated with Kathrin and she decided to return to India to study the art of Ayurveda right where it’s coming from. She completed her studies in 2012 with Asho Shivani Panchakarma Center in Dharamsala, North India and has been working as an Ayurvedic Therapist ever since.


For the past 11 years Kathrin has been living mostly in India and Nepal where she has deepened her knowledge in Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation and Energy work. She has sat several silent meditation retreats both in the Mahayana and Theravada tradition. She is trained as a Pranic Healer and Reiki Practitioner and has spent many months on organic and permaculture farms all over the world.Kathrin is thrilled and excited to support your journey to health, wellbeing and to your true self here in our magical earth yoga village.

Her mottos: make food your medicine / nature is my religion / the body is your temple.
