Yogalehrerin & Inhaberin
Diana Pieper

Meine Passion ist Yoga, deshalb ist Yogalehrerin mehr als "nur" ein Beruf für mich. Für mich es ist im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, eine Berufung. Ich praktiziere seit 10 Jahren Yoga, dabei habe ich die unterschiedlichsten Yogastile kennengelernt und habe von vielen verschiedenen Lehrern gelernt.
Yoga hat mein Leben grundlegend und sehr positiv verändert und diese Erfahrung möchte ich gern mit meinen Schülern teilen und sie auf ihrem Weg begleiten.
Es liegt mir sehr am Herzen meinen Schülern zu vermitteln, dass Yoga mehr als nur eine bestimmte Abfolge von Übungen ist. Der Grundgedanke des Yoga ist, durch Meditation, Konzentration, Atmung und Bewegung den Körper und die Seele in Einklang zu bringen. Der Hatha Vinyasa Stil, den ich unterrichte, ist ein dynamischer Yogastil, in dem Bewegungen mit dem Atem zu einer fließenden Einheit verbunden werden. Bewegung und Atmung stehen im unmittelbaren Zusammenhang und durch das bewusste Lenken des Atmens kann Stress reduziert werden, Blockaden können gelöst werden und auch die Konzentration kann gesteigert werden. Mit den Asanas (Übungen), die eine bestimmte Zeit lang gehalten werden, wird die Flexibilität des Körpers auf sanfte Weise gestärkt, die Geschmeidigkeit erhöht und ein Körperbewusstsein wird entwickelt.

Dipl. Pädagogin, Yogalehrerin Yoga Alliance 200h und 500h zertifiziert, Yogatherapeutin: Schwerpunkt anatomische Yogatherapie, Reiki Grad 1

Kurse: Hatha Vinyasa Flow, Yoga für Beginner, Morgenyoga-Flow, Yoga am Mittag

In meinen Kursen möchte ich einen geschützten Raum schaffen, in dem jeder so praktiziert kann wie der Körper es erlaubt. Wichtig ist mir eine achtsame Praxis, in der Bewegung und Atem zu einer fließenden Einheit verbunden werden.

Yoga Teacher
Oren Zaslavsky

I have been practicing yoga since 2006. I tried genuinely to be a part of traditional schools of yoga (Ashtanga, Sivananda...) but realized that yoga doesn't need to be organized, all it really needs is the right intention. 

I practice (and teach) "Hatha-Vinyasa" which is a breath-centered and free-style approach to yoga which is based on the ancient eight-limb system ("the yoga Sutras") originated in India.

I teach (and practice) a combination of what I learned mainly from three teachers who I trained with extensively:

  • A.G. Mohan (of Chennai), from whom I got the traditional approach deeply connected to ancient scriptures from India.
  • Leslie Kaminoff (of NYC), from which I got the anatomic, therapeutic and breath-centered approach to yoga.
  • Richard Freeman (of Boulder), from which I got the essence-oriented, imaginative, going-deep-within and free-spirited approach to yoga. Richard is also a real yogi, one who teaches by example. 

Buddhist approach is there too since I am also an avid Vipassana practitioner.

I’m from Japan.I have been practising for 12 years and teaching for 10years. I completed 200h Yoga teacher training with Louisa Sear from Yoga Arts (Yoga Alliance®- registered

Yoga couse) in 2007 and 20h Restorative Yoga teacher training with Cyndi Lee from OM Yoga in 2010. I’m passionate about yoga as a tool for transformation and awakening “Teaching and studying yoga is a beautiful journey that continues throughout the life.” My respected teacher Louisa Sear, who is director of “Yoga Arts” in Australia told us. I was impressed by this word from the bottom of my heart. I always feel that teaching is learning. I see my students as my teachers I would like my students to explore, release, experience inner and outer transformation–and have fun. I aim to share the importance of continual challenges and of observing to one’s own body-mind state as critical aspects of individual growth and transformation. Yoga is an essential part of my life and I will continue my beautiful journey of yoga to learn and explore to deepen my experience and knowledge throughout my life.

Emma Kohl

Mit Yoga hatte ich 2004 im Iyengar Yoga Studio Moskau zum ersten Mal Berührung. Schon nach der ersten Stunde war ich von Yoga fasziniert und begann mit regelmäßiger Praxis. Ich habe verschiedene Yoga Stile ausprobiert und im Ashtanga & Hatha Yoga meine Erfüllung gefunden. Nachdem ich alle positiven Auswirkungen von Yoga spüren konnte, beschloss ich eine Yoga Lehrer Ausbildung zu absolvieren, mit dem Ziel meine positiven Erfahrungen teilen zu können. Seit September 2013 bin ich Yoga Alliance zertifizierte Yoga Lehrerin für Ashtanga & Hatha Yoga.

Für mich bedeutet Yoga: Die Harmonie zwischen Körper und Geist. In meinen Stunden versuche ich meinen Schülern zu ermöglichen, durch achtsame Praxis zusammen zu bringen, was zusammen gehört: Kraft und Ruhe.

Yogalehrerin
Birgit Morper

Ich praktiziere seit ca. 15 Jahren Yoga und unterrichte Vinyasa Flow, Yin und Restorative Yoga. Mein Stil ist maßgeblich geprägt von Laughing Lotus New York. Ich unterrichte abwechslungsreiche Stunden und kreative Flows, die dennoch einen Fokus auf Alignment haben. Mein Ziel ist es, über das Yoga unsere Körper in ihre natürliche Balance zu führen. In unserer natürlichen Balance wählen wir unsere Gedanken mit einem höheren Bewusstsein, gehen von dem Besten aus und haben Urvertrauen in uns selbst.

Ich bin zertifiziert durch Teacher Trainings in München, New York und Los Angeles (RYT500).

Yogalehrerin
Liza Bobbato

I believe most people who end up in the Holistic health profession are trying to heal themselves. My still young body was suffering from old injuries when I started yoga seriously in 2007.

My Indian roots didn’t make me any better at the advanced poses and I felt too rational and stressed for meditation.  I continued to practice in a supportive studio environment. In a few weeks, my balance and and overall strength improved. Over the next ten years, yoga enhanced my self -reflection positively. 

In Canada, I owned a studio as well as a yoga retreat house where many remarkable teachers and myself taught a variety of styles and teacher trainings. I am also an enthusiastic Vipassana meditator. Doing yoga postures without meditation is like baking a cake and not tasting it.

I teach Hatha/ Flow and Restorative yoga as well as a course called Yoga 101. My classes are friendly and non-competitive.

I like to connect the links between my training in Ayurveda, Thai Yoga Massage and pain management to help students live with less discomfort in their body and more flexibility in their mind.  It is meaningful to hear stories of how yoga helps people in their daily lives.

Today, I commit to teaching a class that will make every individual and body type feel accepted.  I encourage my students to know their intention for why they practice yoga.  When I am not making yogis laugh at Das Yoga Café, I also write and perform comedy in Berlin.  

YOGALEHRERIN
Mandy Baum

Seit 10 Jahren ist Yoga ein fester Bestandteil in meinem Leben. Yoga gibt mir Kraft und Gelassenheit, um die Herausforderungen des Alltags mit mehr Leichtigkeit zu nehmen.

2016 erfüllte ich mir den lang gehegten Wunsch, diese Begeisterung für Yoga auch weiter zu geben und absolvierte meine Ausbildung zur ‚Element-Yoga‘ Lehrerin.

Element-Yoga ist eine wirkungsvolle Methode, Yoga inmitten des modernen Lebens erfahrbar zu machen. Es ist eine transparente und undogmatische Praxis. Sie richtet sich an alle, die sich Veränderung hin zu mehr Leichtigkeit von Herzen wünschen. In der Element-Yogapraxis üben wir mit Themen, die uns berühren, einer anatomisch präzisen Ausrichtung, kraftvollen Haltungen und fließenden Übergängen.

Ich möchte mit Euch üben, in Kontakt mit Euch selbst zu kommen, Dankbarkeit für das zu entwickeln, was bereits da ist. Wir wollen alles loslassen, was uns daran hindert, mit dem Leben im Fluss zu sein. In meinen Stunden üben wir, uns körperlich und geistig für eine Grundhaltung zu öffnen, die von Vertrauen, Akzeptanz und Lebensfreude geprägt ist.

My classes are a safe space for you to connect and re-connect with your body, mind and spirit. Essentially, to breathe freely and consciously - without fear or judgement.
Whether you are a beginner or advanced practitioner, I aim to give you clear guidance and support through anatomical queuing and assistance (hands-on, energetic, or both!)You will probably hear me use Sanscrit and share ancient philosophy honouring the ancient traditions of Yoga.
I may also incorporate mantra.I will always respect your boundaries, but I will also encourage you to test your limits.The practice has allowed me to find freedom, peace and better self-connection through self-awareness and it would be my honour to share this with you.
Yogalehrerin
Maria Linsel

Ich bin Yogaübende, Yogalernende, und Yogalehrende (200h RYT, Hatha/Vinyasa basiertes Holistisches Yoga).

Meistens verlaufen die Grenzen dabei fließend. Und darum geht es mir auch ganz grundsätzlich: das Fließen. Manchmal habe ich jedoch so gar nicht das Gefühl in meinem Körper würde alles fließen. Genau deshalb übe ich Yoga. Es hilft mir, mich in meinem inneren Ozean zurechtzufinden, die Wellen an Empfindungen und Gedanken selbstbewusst und mutig zu nehmen. Und eben weil jeder Mensch und jede Welle anders ist, glaube ich nicht an den einen Yogastil, der für jede*n der einzige und beste Weg ist. So unterschiedlich jeder Mensch, jede Lebensgeschichte, jeder Körper und jeder Tag ist so variantenreich und vielseitig soll auch die Yogapraxis sein. Ein großes Spielfeld, zum Ausprobieren, zum Frei-Entscheiden, zum Suchen und Finden. In meinen Stunden möchte ich deshalb einen Raum schaffen in dem du mit dir sein kannst, wie du gerade bist, um einen Weg zu finden dich genau so wohl mit dir zu fühlen. Diese Gelassenheit ist für mich die Voraussetzung dafür, dass wir auch abseits der Matte hinschauen und hinfühlen können. Denn über den Selbstfindungsfokus der Yogawelt hinaus geht es mir nicht nur darum zu lernen Verantwortung für uns selbst zu übernehmen sondern auch für andere Menschen, Tiere und den gesamten Planeten.

Ich freue mich darauf mit euch Ruhe und Kraft auf der Matte zu finden, damit wir danach frisch aufgetankt dem Rest der Welt begegnen können. Oder wie es mein Lehrer Yogi Sivadas sagt: changing the world one Yogi at a time.

 

Intuitive Energy Healer, Reiki Master and Holistic Yoga Teacher
Leigh Theodore Vlassis

Born in Australia with Greek origins I have lived in many parts of our beautiful world before currently calling Berlin home. I am an Intuitive Energy Healer and Spiritual Consultant, certified Reiki Master from the Mikao Usui lineage, channeller of  universal light frequencies in the form of Light Language and completed my training as a Gong Master with international Grand Gong Master Don Conreaux.

It was in Rishikesh, at the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India where I completed my RYT 200h (Yoga Alliance®) as a qualified Holistic Akhanda Yoga Teacher under the amazing teachings of Himalayan Yoga Master Yogrishi Vishvketu (co-founder of Akhanda Yoga) at Anand Prakash Ashram. It was here in this remote region of the world that is abundant with highly charged energies - specifically in Rishikesh and Mcleod Ganj, home of the Dalai Lama - where I was able to really delve deep into the holistic teachings of traditional Himalayan Hatha yoga, as well as Buddhist and Tibetan Meditation.

In my meditation classes at Das Yoga Cafe, I am really excited to bring the very easy techniques and exercises that I have learned to create a space for everyone where they can simply relax, go within and be. My intention for these classes is to make Meditation accessible to absolutely everyone and show everyone how easy and amazing Meditation is. The benefits are so great and I am really happy to be given this opportunity and meet wonderful souls in the process.

Having been in contact with energies all my life, my spiritual journey has been a magnificent and exciting one, a journey that is ever constantly unfolding into many and new opportunities, for myself and for everyone with whom I come into contact with. I am really excited to bring what I have learned in my life thus far into my classes and workshops to create a space where everyone is able to live in the present moment, and rediscover that inner divine light that resides in each and every one of us.

Moran Rosenthal

Yoga was the first step in my personal journey that began in 2010 when I visited India for the first time. Ever since it has taken me through spiritual and substantial paths in life.

My Yoga teacher training courses took place in Rishikesh and in Varkala, India. I am trained in traditional Hatha and Ashtanga style (RYT 500) and teach my own interpretation of Hatha and Hatha-Vinyasa.

In an open, personal and compassionate atmosphere, my classes flourish a serene release of my students’ bodies, as well as their minds.

I believe Yoga is a journey that connects us with our inner-selves, reminding us to stay present at all times.

Although born in India, my personal yoga journey began while living in isolation in a dark, cold winter in Sweden in 2004 when I was given a book on the subject. I came to find that the practice brought me peace of mind, serenity and simultaneously, energy! I became hooked and its taken me on a terrific ride, learning, practicing and teaching throughout my travels ever since. As a teacher,  I feel inspired by my great aunt, Ursula Lyon, the buddhist author and yoga teacher, who still teaches at the age of 90. 
Among my teacher trainings, I have completed 200hrs Yoga Alliance with Trimurti India and 500hrs with Spirit Yoga Berlin. 
Since 2015, I have chosen to live in Berlin, teaching mainly Vinyasa & Hatha Flow, Core and Yoga Nidra. 
In my classes, I bring awareness to conscious breath and healthy alignment using hands-on, constructive sequencing and a sense of humour, so that you can treat yourself softly with your breath as your guide, believe in the power of the mantra: “Whatever you do, Love Yourself” and enjoy the ride.
Besides teaching yoga, I enjoy working as a massage therapist, bodyworker, dancing, playing and being a mama.

Anja Mujic

Originally from Sydney, I am a contemporary dancer and yoga teacher passionate about supporting and inspiring people through movement. I have been very fortunate to study worldwide with many great teachers, gaining my 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Certification from Power Living Australia, and my 50 hour Yin Yoga Certification from Melanie McLaughlin/The Yin Space.

My classes are dynamic and playful, with a focus on breath and alignment, and the opportunity to creatively tune into the body. I hope my classes will inspire students to build awareness of their inner dialogue, as well as cultivate their inner compass and intuition. 

yoga teacher
James Henderson

As a modern yogi I have a passion for integrating yoga into our busy lives to help us create a more meaningful existence and better relationship with ourselves, others and the planet. I truly believe that yoga is the antidote to the challenges of the modern world! I'm an advocate of personal disruption and a firm believer in the 'power of a single carrot to set off a revolution'... 

My power vinyasa, yin yoga and meditation classes are sprinkled with philosophy, positive psychology and luscious sounds.  

I completed my 200hr yoga teacher training with Duncan Peak at Power Living Australia in 2017. I've also completed workshops with Tiffany Cruikshank, Les Leventhal, Simon Park, Bryan Kest, Duncan Peak, Meghan Currie, Cameron Shayne, Patrick Beach, Cveta Jovanoska and Maria Kirsten. I've studied Buddhism and meditation at RIGPA Australia and completed several 10 day silent Vipassana meditation retreats, led by S N Goenka. 

I look forward to meeting you at the studio!

Vanda Belakova

I have been into dance and movement since childhood, passions that slowly developed into a love for yoga. I dived into regular yoga practice in 2013 during my time in London, and my knowledge further developed after a 5 month stay in Bali and a subsequent 200-hour YTT in India.

As I remain a passionate learner, I frequently go to workshops that further broaden my knowledge in the topics that interest me most: yoga alignment, anatomy, ayurveda, philosophy and meditation.

I believe life is full of dualities and we are constantly finding the balance between them. In the same way as the day cannot exist without the night, we cannot be happy without being sad sometimes. Yoga helps me conciliate both poles to accept that our lives, minds and bodies are an ever changing process.

Today in Berlin I want to pass along what I gathered during my journey. In my Hatha Vinyasa class you can expect grounding exercises and stretches, creative sequencing, details and proper alignment, with a strong emphasis on breathing and relaxation. I try to make each class unique by giving focus to different mental and physical elements.
