* B.K.S. Iyengar (1918-2014)
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At the age of 22 and after finishing my sociology studies, I wanted to travel and make new experiences far away from home. On this life journey I lived in Madrid, Barcelona and London until I landed in Germany in 2011. Since then I have been living and working in Regensburg, Bavaria.
Because of my scoliosis I had to undergo different therapies with specialists in this field already as a teenager. In 2005 I finally discovered yoga for myself and have not stopped practicing and studying it since then.
With yoga I developed a better body awareness and finally was able to approach my scoliosis in a different way, accepting it and at the same time changing my posture by strengthening, toning and stretching the spine.
My special interest is the therapeutic and preventive side of yoga. I place particular emphasis on body alignment in postures and focus on the practice of breathing exercises to revitalize the entire body. For this reason I am fascinated by Iyengar Yoga. In this yoga direction I learned about the use and usefulness of the yoga wall, among other things, which I have been integrating into my daily practice ever since. Each time I am amazed at the intensity and depth with which it supports my practice. I want to make this experience possible for my students as well!
The idea of sharing yoga with other people inspires me. For me Yoga is a gift that I want to give again and again!
My Hatha Yoga classes are based on the fundamentals of Sri. B.K.S. Iyengar.
In my classes, exercises are held longer to allow a better focus on technique and breathing flow. It is especially important to me to consciously perceive the states of body and mind. To achieve this, I use body and breath as tools and guide the student with precise instructions.
I am inspired by various teachers, such as Sri. B.K.S. Iyengar, Dr. Geeta S. Iyengar, Indra Devi and Aadil Palkhivala. Teachers like Carrie Owerko, Roger Cole, Richard Hackenberg, Florian Palzinsky, Martin Zilbauer and Ralph Skuban (as well as others), have helped me to deepen the essence and philosophy of Yoga.
