Yin and Yang styles of yoga combine to balance and nourish us on an emotional, physical, spiritual and mental level. As a trained and passionate teacher of Yin and Yang Yoga, I teach group and private classes in Berlin, Germany and online. My motivation to guide others in yoga comes from a deepening understanding of the richness that yoga asana, meditation and pranayama bring to individuals and the collective. I have benefited tremendously from these practices, and it is my joy and calling to bring these teachings to others.
The Yin side of yoga focuses on reflection, contemplation, holding floor-based poses for 3-5 minutes each, and going inward to explore the depths of our emotional realms. In contrast (and to complement), the Yang side brings heating, dynamic, strengthening, active poses to raise energy. Yin is representative of the moon and the feminine and Yang is representative of the sun and the masculine. Exploring both sides of yoga helps to bring balance to ourselves and to our world.
