Thank you for visiting my website. I am a certified Yoga Alliance instructor based in Bonn, Germany. I teach Vinyasa- and Hatha-based classes in English and German. In my classes, I emphasize safe, correct alignment and the need to modify postures to suit the individual.
The first thing I want you to know is: There is no one-size-fits-all yoga! What one person will love, another person will loathe. It can take time to find a studio that you feel comfortable in and a teacher who you feel at ease with. If you succeed in finding a teacher who’s right for you, you will benefit from immediate results and leave class feeling stronger and more peaceful, clearer and more energetic.
I’m always keen to dispel common misconceptions about who, how, or what we should be to practice yoga. The truth is, there are no prerequisites other than a willingness to open your heart and your mind, and let go of any preconceived ideas! It really doesn’t matter how old or young you are, what size or shape you are, how strong or flexible you are. It doesn’t matter what anyone else in class looks like, whether their hands or heels touch the floor when yours don’t, how straight their legs are compared to yours, who has their nose closest to their knees. All that matters when you’re on your mat is you! Always be kind to yourself, listen to your body, and respect its limitations.
