What kind of training do you have?
I did my 200-hour teacher training with Nico Luce. He attaches great importance to anatomy and correct alignment. You can also feel this in my courses. In 2019 I completed the Yin Yoga Teacher Training (60 hrs YACEP) with Nico Luce.
I am also a graduate communicator and trained moderator. I work full time for a swiss insurance.
What’s class like ?
My Vinyasa Yoga classes have a clear structure. We start gently and I give you time to arrive on your mat. Then we warm up the body so that we are perfectly prepared for the peak pose. The peak pose is the highlight of every lesson and usually an advanced pose that challenges you and on which we can work. Then we will slow down again, stretch and counter balance the exercises. After Shavasana you will feel the after yoga glow.
Why Yoga and not Pilates?
What I like about yoga is that it combines strength, endurance and flexibility. It calms the nervous system and I can completely switch off. I like the flowing in yoga and the long sequences. I started Pilates much earlier and still do it today. I like the most varied classes like Alex’s (link to Alex’s profile). For yoga, on the other hand, I needed several attempts. I didn’t feel flexible enough. Also I had to learn first that the journey is the desitnation…
What sports do you do besides yoga?
Jogging outdoors in nature and without an app that tells me how fast to run. Pilates and HIIT.
