Workshop Series: Hips, Back & Shoulders
In this three part workshop series we will be looking at those areas in the body that often feel tight or at times even painful: the hips, the back and the shoulders.
Dynamic strengthening creates stability in the body and gentle stretches soften tensions – both elements at play in our yoga practice foster well-being and health in our body as well as our mind.
Part I: Happy Hips
In this workshop we will take a look at the biggest joint in the human body: the hips. Being the joint between out lower and upper body, the hips directly affect our spine and especially the lower back.
Influenced by our way of life these areas feels often very tight which affects us not only physically, but also mentally: the hips are known to store unprocessed experiences as “body memories”, which often causes tensions and restrictions of movement in the body.
We will take a short excursion into the anatomy of the hips before exploring the body in a Vinyasa Flow practice that focusses on the hips. In a gentle Yin Yoga practice we will wind down and dive deep into the hip joint, ending in a short meditation that offers a safe place to release thought patterns or emotions that you wish to let go of.
Hips: Sunday, April 8 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Back: Sunday, April 22 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Shoulders: Sunday, May 13 / 10:30 – 12:30 am
Location: Besser Bewegen, Schleissheimerstrasse 202, 80797 München

My lovely yogis!
The time has come: I will be leading a lovely retreat and it`s going to be my first one in Europe so I am all the more excited that it will take place in Greece!
This week long retreat is located at the gorgeous west coast of Greece, at the Ionian Sea, overlooking Korfu. This untouched coastline, where green hills meet pristine beaches with crystal clear water, surrounded by an impressive mountain range, is the perfect place to unplug and nurture your body, mind and soul.
We will start our day with an energizing Vinyasa Flow class, where fluidity and alignment merge beautifully into sequences that are at times challenging, yet playful and accessible. During the day you will have time to swim at one of the gorgeous beaches or the pool, go for a stroll or hike or simply enjoy sweet moments of calm. In the evening we will wind down in a gentle Yin Yoga practice that will leave you replenished and grounded.
This retreat will take place from June 30 until July 7 at the Ilios Center nearby Syvota and includes 2 yoga classes per day, accomodation as well as breakfast and dinner.
For lovely insights about the area and gorgeous sights read this article: Experiences around Syvota.

I`ll be teaching at Paradis Plage Surf, Yoga & Spa Resort nearby the charming village of Taghazout.
Classes will be held in the amazingly beautiful shala, overlooking the ocean and with nothing but the soothing sound of waves in the background.
In the mornings we will start with a Vinyasa Yoga practice, maching movement and breath in a gentle, yet invigorating flow that will leave you feel energized and ready for the day ahead. Classes at noon wil focus on detailed alignment and understanding the basic priciples of Yoga Asana, with the intention to establish a strong foundation for your practice. In our evening classes we will nourish the body and mind in a gentle Yin Yoga practice, preparing ourselves for a tranquil night`s sleep.

Here`s some lovely news ♡
Since February, I am teaching a weekly open class at the beautiful studio Hemma: Wednesdays, from 7:30 – 8:30 am. Join me in a gentle morning flow that will leave you feel nourished, at ease and energized for the day ahead.
I`m in love with the Hemma Studio since I first started teaching there in 2015. Not only is it in a lovely neighborhood, in walking distance from my home – it is also a truly beautiful space with a great energy and very sweet clientele and teachers.
I can`t wait to see you there on the mat!

My lovely yogis!
Finally the time has come to announce two new additions to my regular classes that I have been longing to teach and you have continued to ask for since I am back in Munich: yoga classes at Body & Soul.
The first one is a bi-weekly Yoga Basic class on Saturdays, from 9:30 – 10:45 am at Body & Soul Nord. We are already starting on February 3 and will go from there every other Saturday. The class is ideal for new yogis who want to establish the foundations of a thorough and sustainable practice as well as for experienced practitioners who would like to refine their alignment, movement patterns and overall approach.
The second one is a weekly Power Yoga class on Thursdays, from 7:00 – 8:00 am at Body & Soul Nord. This early morning flow will help you to find balance between strength and ease, leaving you energized and ready for the day ahead.
I am so looking forward to seeing you there!
Much love ♡
I have aways wanted to grow my practice and teaching so that one day I would change perspective from being a student in a Yoga Teacher Training to being a mentor. I had no structured plan for this to happen, just a vision but as always when we set our mind and intentions onto something, it sooner or later materializes.
I did not expect for my dream to come true this fast though so naturally I was over the roof when Patrick invited me to join his team of mentors in his latest 200 hour Teacher Training. Patrick Broome Yoga became my yoga home in Munich over the years and I am honored and grateful for the opportunities given.
We started in November 2017 and will continue until May this year, with monthly weekend intensives. I am mentoring an adorable group of 10 yogis and together we learn and grow and allow for our hearts to open and surrender and trust, brightly shining the light that resides within us.
Teaching yoga is my calling and sharing this amazing practice my greatest pleasure.
A huge thank you to each and every one of you who is making this journey so beautiful ♡
With winter approaching, we are entering a time of stillness and reflection.
As the temperatures get colder, our bio-rhythm is slowing down. It’s a time for less activities, for staying in, for getting cozy with ourselves and our loved ones.
It is also a time for turning inwards. As the year is coming to end an, we reflect on what touched our life in one way or another, seeking closures and new beginnings.
This is a beautiful opportunity to slow down the pace and stay with what is in the spirit of openness and reliance.
Yin Yoga can be a very sweet practice to support you on that path.
Here’s my Yin Yoga Playlist for this season ♡
