Welcome to Insight Yoga
For more than 15 years, the main focus of my yoga teaching has been to train the next generations of yoga teachers. This work is a real privilege and a great responsibility since teachers embody the tradition and spread the teachings.It is very simple: How yoga is perceived and to what depth it is practised depends primarily on its teachers. I have chosen this field very consciously, in order to step up as a senior teacher and to help preserve these liberating teachings. Yoga is a tradition in motion, not a fixed and stale relic from the past. The fine line we are treading as teachers is to capture and share the essence and transformative power of these.
My Yoga Journey
After initial Haṭha Yoga classes and meditation groups in Hamburg during my last years at
high school, I decided that learning these ancient liberation techniques was more important
than going to university and left for Nepal and India in 1993.
