Stressed out, tensed up, shiftless and/or unmotivated. That’s how we often feel in daily life and that’s how I felt when my doctor recommended Yoga classes to balance out countless overtime hours in my office job some years ago.
Without actually searching for backrounds I browsed the internet until I found a beginners class that suited my schedule. A few days later I set foot on the mat for the first time and just gave trust in what was about to come.
What happened then still wows me today: My body improved in all kinds of ways, my immune system got way stronger and I felt that my posture and mindset began to change in unexpected, but enjoyable ways. Also I built such a strong urge to move (bodywise and in general) that hasn’t been there ever before. Practicing simply made me happy and helped me neutralising stress of my daily lifestyle immediately.
It didn’t take long for me to understand that the path of Yoga is my way to satisfaction eventually.
What’s also fulfilling and satisfying me is to inspire others to practise, so I successfully completed a 600H Yoga teacher training in Hatha, Ashtanga and Kundalini Yoga at the Institute of Yoga and Health Cologne within 2 years and added a meditation training afterwards. To deepen my understanding and gain additional knowledge in Yoga therapy, Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flows, I completed another 300H teacher training at Vinyasa Yoga school in Rishikesh, India.
My aim is to spark interest: in what our bodies are capable of, in unusual movement and poses. Interest in relaxation without massage tables and in a philosophy that can easily be transported to our daily lifestyle. Yoga is healing, it's diverse and practicable for everyone.
