1. How much shall I donate for the class? Pay what the class was worth to you. Please remember a regular yoga class in Frankfurt costs between 17 and 25 Euro. Please don't abuse the system by paying less for your yoga than for your coffee-to-go in the morning. That's not very yogi style. I am sure you don't want to belong to that type of person. The money is used to pay for: - the rent of the locations (which easily adds up in Frankfurt) - the subscription costs to run a group on Meetup - the...

Although 3 years ago, I still remember that day. It was hot in Ubud, Bali. I hadn't really slept, because I had a little gecko in my bali chalet, that hide behind the air-condition, making noise all night long. My neighbor was from Berlin (of course, there is always a German I bump into when I travel) and she took me to a yoga school close by. No it wasn't the super famous *Radiantly Alive Yoga studio* in Ubud, but a simple, yet beautiful shala. When we' ve entered the room, it was hot and the...

Yes, I've made it! 150 events in 1,5 years and almost 2500 followers later... the last number is insane, because I am coming from a tiny village with 5000 inhabitants in the middle of nowhere in Thuringia - so 2.500 is quite a big number for me. Anyway, there are a few lessons I have learnt along the way: 1. It's all about humans. In the end it all goes to back human relations. People come to your events or unfollow you, because they can relate to you. Everyone wants to be treated nicely and...

1. Originally I wanted to become an interior architect. 2. I have travelled more than 35 countries (quite a few on my own) and lived abroad in 6 countries. 3.

Smells are strongly connected to certain emotions. There are scents that can give us the feeling of being refreshed and others that calm us down. That makes essential oils perfect for your yoga practice. Depending on the kind of class I teach, I always use different oils, that I rub quickly into my palms so that my students can smell it in Savasana. During summer and outdoor classes, I love to use citrus oils such as lemon, lemongrass and orange. For me that's like the perfect smell of summer....

A lot of people turn to yoga, because they experience some kind of pain - physical or mental pain - and want to overcome it. There is indepth research and studies that confirm that yoga provides health benefits, because it comes back to the basics - feeling into your body, getting to know you and learning what's good for you and what's not. My yoga journey also started because of chronic pain. I had chest pain for 2 years and doctors couldn't help until I have met one who told me to learn yoga...

There are so many yoga mats out there, that you might feel a little bit overwhelmed. Ask yourself where do you wanna use your mat. Indoors, outdoors or at home? Then ask yourself what kind of quality your mat should be. Non-slippery, washable, foldable, sustainable... At last but not least, ask yourself how much you wanna spend on it. Here are 4 mats that I use personally and that I recommend.

A lot of my students ask me how I started with yoga. To be honest, yoga and I wasn’t a love-at-first-sight relationship. And I hadn’t even planned to become a yoga teacher one day. But, well, then life comes in between… I had my first yoga lesson around 10 years ago in Zurich. It was a hot yoga studio, heated up to almost 40 degrees. I was literally dying. My best friend brought me there, telling me that Lady Gaga does her workout there too. We had got the 10-day pass, but only went twice...
