I would like to give a short introduction about myself and how I became a yoga teacher in Palma de Mallorca.
Yoga has been a major part of my life since I started university and was searching for a way to properly relax and calm the mind during stressful periods of studies – I found yoga, and since then I’ve never looked back. During my studies of Media economics until 2010, I only practiced Hatha Yoga and was overwhelmed by the intense impact of this old tradition. After some world travel subsequent to my time at the university I landed in Australia, and lived there for a few years. I discovered different forms of yoga there, including Hot Yoga (an intense form of yoga, in a heated room) and Vinyasa Yoga.
In 2016 after several years of “frustration” in my 5th corporate business job it was time for a career change and I returned to Australia for a month of traveling to discover what I wanted to do with my life and find my life’s purpose. I spend my days in beautiful Byron Bay falling in deep love with Yin Yoga (A more passive form, focused on softness and intense stretches). I realized Yoga had been the only real constant in my life and felt inspired and ready to embark on a new journey. One which would allow me to pass on my passion to others and hopefully inspire more people to make positive changes in their lives. I flew to India, and traveled to Rishikesh, which is known as the home of yoga, to do a teacher training program which didn’t just teach me the different asanas, the correct alignment of the poses and pranayama, but also lots of the ancient Indian tradition and the philosophy of yoga. This teacher training focussed on a very dynamic form of physical yoga, which we also understand as Yang. Whereas this might be the ideal practice for some, I was always aiming for my Yin Yoga certification to combine both elements into Yin Yang classes. In every Yang class I went myself, I was missing the calming and healing stretches Yin Yoga offers. I therefore combine Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga in my Yin Yang Yoga classes and I offer pure Yin classes which I find just healing and blissful. Our western life’s are so full of Yang elements that we need to balance them a bit. 🙂
I would say that my experiences in Australia, India and Bali had the most impact on my teaching apart from the continuous teacher trainings I did in Yin Yoga (Cologne) and prenatal Yoga (Palma de Mallorca).
After some years abroad Germany wasn’t the right place to live for me anymore and fortunately life has brought me to the beautiful Balearic Island Mallorca, where I am teaching Yin Yoga, Yin & Yang Yoga, Hatha Yoga and Prenatal Yoga classes in it’s capital Palma de Mallorca with a lot of passion and devotion. I would be very honored to may see you in one of my open classes or private sessions in Mallorca.
