Yoga has been a part of my life since I am 12 years old. My first ever yoga class actually happened in my living room at home in front of the TV with a Nintendo Wii balance board and an animated avatar as my teacher. Ever since, Yoga is a crucial part in my life to find balance in physical and mental challenges.
As I grew up and became more and more interested in software engineering, I somehow managed to understand my fascination for the rather technical way of approaching yoga at the beginning. In the meantime, I prefer human interaction between students and teacher, of course. In 2018, I concluded my 200 hours Yoga Alliance Teacher training in Hatha Yoga with Zuna Yoga (Everett & Katherine Newell) in Bali, Indonesia. I admire how the scientific proof of benefits through yogic practice can be connected with old traditions and are combined in a modern approach to Yoga.
Next to Hatha Yoga, I also practice AcroYoga (acrobatic yoga). Principles of both Hatha and AcroYoga will always be present in my classes as I frequently do partner exercises where we help each other into difficult poses and give support. I always try to create an atmosphere in my classes that allows to both find ease and challenges, especially by learning and exploring new poses. I typically hold space in every class for a short workshop-style break where we look at a pose in a bit more detail and depth.
I teach in English.
