Profile

susanneSince I went into my first yoga class back in 1996, yoga has become an important part of my life. Yoga can be practiced in many different ways. For me it is about keeping my body healthy and experiencing inner silence, inner peace. My Yoga is not about "mastering" a certain asana, but about entering into a dialogue with the body and the mind in order to connect to my self and the world around me with friendl.

Since 2013
I have been teaching yoga with joy, creativity and curiosity to a wide variety of target groups. I have about 800 hours of teacher training and more than 2000 hours of teaching experience (Yoga Alliance, E-RYT 500). Mostly, my Svastha Yoga Therapy training with Dr. Günter Niessen and Ganesh Mohan inspired and influenced my teaching a lot. Since the yoga journey never ends, I am now studying online with A.G. Mohan and Indra Mohan

I teach individual lessons, lead yoga classes in yoga studios for a healthy back, have classes for seniors (gentle yoga) as well as YinYang yoga. Another focus of my work is to bring yoga to the workplace. I have a degree in chemistry and environmental protection and worked for more than 20 years in German and foreign environmental authorities as well as in the private sector. I therefore know from my own experience the physical and mental benefits of a yoga practice at work. You can read more on my business yoga page

tiril lilylThe focus in all classes is the mindful movement in the asanas and breathing consciously. We do some guided meditations and a I always offer a topic anchored in yoga philosophy or other spiritual traditions for inspiration.
I don't teach a specific style of yoga, but take the best of all my training with me into my classes
