About Me

“The key to perfection lies in the synthesis of the wisdom of the East and the science and progress of the West.”

For many years I have been living a yogic lifestyle and have immersed myself into mystic traditions and practises for self-realisation.

My name is Madhavi and I am a certified psychologist and coach as well as founder and CEO of Soulfood Academy. It is my passion to help people transform their life and create their unique lifestyle design so they can experience and be their authentic self. Besides what I’ve studied, it’s predominantly my own life experience that has shaped me and enables me to guide others through their challenges, expanding their life’s vision and attaining their goals in life. Within the last 10 years, I had the joy to be a mother; I experienced the pain of losing my child six months after. When my husband decided to become monk, my previous life fell apart. I had to learn to let go of attachment and dependency and to transcend the pain. This led me to discover my path, being and purpose in life.

After a period of living a renunciate life in an Ashram in Vrindavan, India, the heart of devotion, I set out to the heart of business, Frankfurt, where I worked for an Academy as a speaker and coach in corporate health, personal development and leadership.  After founding Soulfood Academy, I am now a full-time freelancing psychologist and coach, counselling my corporate and private clients as well as conducting group coachings, keynote talks, corporate retreats, yoga and meditation classes. A few years back life has brought me back to what I feel is my soul’s home and mother, India. From here, I am deepening my knowledge and experiences to share them with clients around the world. 

If I’m not working you’ll find me lifting weights at the gym, discovering India’s surfspots and learning carnatic music. 



“One thing I know for sure – If I was able to make it through the challenges life put me through, each of my clients is able to make it, too. What you need is a yes, and the willingness to take responsibility for your life. Then you take each step at a time. You’ll be surprised to discover a new YOU. I’d be happy to guide you on that journey.”

Our life today is very convenient, but at the same time a dissatisfaction has crept in, a problem that exists only for humans. Comfort has brought great inner discomfort and depression, the greater the physical comfort, the greater the restlessness; with increasing distance from this comfort zone, inner peace increases.
