Yogini, teacher, healer, Heilpraktikerin – it is in the nature of language that it forces us to identify ourselves. These are a few things that make up my identity.

And my name, too… – il’il אילאיל Sat Prem ਸਤਿ ਪਰੈਮ.

I was born by the Mediterranean Sea, in a city called Tel Aviv – a short walking distance from the half-buried ruins of al-Mas’udiyya / Summayl المسعوديه / صميل.

My childhood was spent in observation and play: The world around me was sunny, unbearably hot – and I had a way to see the sounds, feel words on my skin – their shapes, their taste, their colors. The unconscious movement of things was often louder than the screams of the grey crows, louder than the cries of the multitudes of skinny street cats. All I had to do was listen.

Sensations have always fascinated me, and so has the interrelation of things.

First I became a musician.

And then my name – il’il אילאיל is an uncommon name. It has no meaning apart from its sound. A Hebrew poet gave it to his beloved long ago – a private or a secret name, in his poems to the woman he loved.

Sat Prem ਸਤਿ ਪਰੈਮ was given to me later, a spiritual name; ‘true love’, or ‘divine love of truth’. At that time I was living in New York, practicing Kundalini Yoga.

I became a teacher.

Guru Dev Singh Khalsa, Master of Sat Nam Rasayan, my Teacher, I met in 2008. It became immediately clear to me that I needed to learn from this man.

I embarked on the path to become a healer.

Healing manifests as a learning process, and a learning process should be a process of healing – I perceive them as very similar experiences. Both are about growth, expanding one’s perception, the “melting away” of perceived limitations.

In teaching – of yoga or healing – this is the experience that I wish for the student and that I guide them towards. This is the experience that I provide them with the tools to arrive at.

In healing – with Sat Nam Rasayan, Chinese Acupuncture, Kundalini Yoga – the setting and procedures may be different – but the experience I strive to facilitate is essentially the same.

In 2011 I moved to Berlin and trained as a Heilpraktikerin. I offer individual healing sessions, and I also work with groups – as a teacher of Kundalini Yoga and Sat Nam Rasayan, and as a workshop facilitator.

I love seeing people transform, discover their potential, find joy in their lives and commit to their process of growth. I feel blessed to be part of such a journey.
