Viktoria - Certified Sound Healer & Yoga Teacher
Viktoria has been practicing yoga and studying its philosophy for over 20 years. Born and raised in Switzerland, she moved to Los Angeles in 2000, where she attended her first yoga class with Mas Vidal who to this date remains to be her mentor. After completing her BA in Business and Economics, she spent a decade in the corporate world before following her heart and transitioning to work for an animal welfare organization for which she still works.
While traveling through South India in 2007, she was introduced to the singing bowls at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. In 2011, Viktoria completed Yoga Alliance’s one-year Yoga Teacher Training. To help her students reach a deeper state of meditation, she began to integrate sound healing in her yoga classes.
In 2017, Viktoria moved to Bondi Beach, Australia where she has continued her practice as a sound healer, offering sound healings ranging from private sessions to large-group events. With her in-depth knowledge and experience in sound therapy, pranayama breathing techniques, and the energy centers, Viktoria helps her clients calm their nervous systems, decrease stress and overcome anxiety.
Viktoria has studied and trained in sound healing, pranayama, meditation, energy healing, Ayurveda, EFT and yoga across four continents, including obtaining sound healing certification by the notable Lama Tendar in Melbourne. She has been a continuous student of the Self-Realization Fellowship (Paramahansa Yogananda) for many years.
One of the primary motivations driving Viktoria's journey of offering sound healings is her strong awareness of the immense suffering inflicted upon animals and the vulnerable by the hands of humanity, through acts of cruelty, violence and pain.
She realized that humanity's actions are often not inherently malevolent, but rather a consequence of the disconnect from their compassionate core and a lack of higher consciousness. Deep within this realization Viktoria recognized her calling — to elevate consciousness and guide individuals towards rediscovering the harmonious resonance of their hearts.
As a passionate animal protector, Viktoria believes that a healthy mind and a content soul will lead people to live from the heart; a life filled with love and compassion. Only then, they will be able to express the full capacity of their potential kindness - to themselves, to each other and to all animals.
