Course Program

Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and Chanting

The actual schedule for the Mysore classes and the Pranayama class can be found here (please note that you can start your practice within a window of time).

Once per month, I also offer led classes in Ashtanga Yoga (prior experience required, firm starting time) and on Sunday mornings meditation and chanting classes (suitable also for beginners). A few times per year, I offer introductory weekends on Pranayama (open for everybody) and refresher courses for Pranayama (prior knowledge required).

You can find an overview of upcoming workshops here, including events for family constellation work and for chakra constellations.

Home

Welcome to my website.

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, a dynamic yoga style, is my primary focus. Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga consists of a fixed sequence of postures (asana). Upon regular practice, already after a short period Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga increases strength, flexibility, endurance and balance.

Even as a total beginner, you can start practicing at any time in one of the so-called Mysore classes, where each student is taught and supported individually. Alternatively, you may opt for taking private one on one classes.

A flyer with relevant information on my programme can be downloaded here. To subscribe for my newsletter which I publish on an monthly basis, newsletter press here.

I would like to draw the attention of already established Ashtangis to the yearly Ashtanga Yoga Intensive with Greg Nardi (USA), in 2019 from September 19th until 22nd. The exact programme for the event will probably be published by May 1st 2019. As of then, firm registration will be possible. Before then, you can preserve a spot for the morning (6 - 8 a.m.) or evening (6 - 8 p.m.) Mysore classes. Class size for the Mysore classes is limited to 10 practitioners.

As a Plus, I offer additional approaches to further personal growth towards more inner freedom, vitality and joy. These are pranayama, meditation, energy work, family constellation work and coaching. A flyer with the actual dates for family constellations and chakra constellations (in German) can be found here. Should you specifically be interested in constellation work, you might find my special newsletter on that topic (currently only in German, published three times per year) of interest. To subscribe for it, please press here.
