Founder and manager. Practicing different yoga styles since 2000 and teach gentle Hatha yoga.

"Yoga helps me to live a more balanced, calm and positive life.
Yoga empowers me and gives me the energy and flexibility I want and need in life. It helps me get a different and clearer perspective on things. For me, yoga is home."
Practitioner over a decade, guiding her students into joys of movement since beginning of 2019 in various contexts: individually in studios, companies, corporate conferences as well as in surf camps and collectively as a part of Berlin-based movement group: Y* Collective.
Anna completed all of her 550+ hrs yoga studies in Berlin. Her classes are energetic movement sessions with mindful approach, where Anna weaves together her studies and experience on yoga, embodiment coaching and thai yoga massage. Additionally, as a gong player, she loves to treat her students with some delightful vibrations from gongs and sound bowls.
“A never-ending self-exploration, dynamic movement accompanied with times of stillness - and the sweet in-between moments. Ultimately, for me yoga is a way to connect - with myself and with the others. Flowing and strength-building asana practice, moving mindfully with our breath, being open to all arising sensations and having fun! That’s how I practice and that is what I love to share with my students.”
María practices yoga since 1998. They completed basic (2004) and advanced (2007) Hatha teacher training and have been teaching since 2004.
"My practice of ashtanga vinyasa (2006-2012) contributed dynamic sequencing to my classes. I practice and teach yoga integrating flexibility/strength, will/surrender and concentration/expansion. I perceive the organism as a whole and believe that an engaged physical practice can be transformative on all levels of the individual and beyond it."
"Yoga helps me connect with equanimity in the face of challenge, wonder at what may seem ordinary and profound humbleness, trust and joy. It attunes my whole organism and keeps it strong, adaptable and vibrant. Yoga is what I always return to."
María is also a performing artist and a Gestalt practitioner.
Born in Hawaii, I am a Swedish-American yogi with a big heart and free spirit. Yoga asana and meditation have been an essential part of my life for 10 yrs. I have two 200-hr teacher training and one 300-hr YTT under my belt.
My passion for powerful, dynamic and focused yet the smooth movement has existed since a young age (ie; dance, gymnastics and synchronized swimming) but I felt these were lacking something deeper. I studied art for 8 years, where my interest in body movement manifested into artwork with expressive nudes as the focus. When I discovered yoga asana and philosophy, I realised what I had previously been missing and seeking. I love the physicality of yoga because it allows me to explore + expand my strength + flexibility, but even more so I love that the practice is a platform to train my mind; to challenge and question my core beliefs and connect with and ground myself.
"I love to teach because I can connect with people and help them to realize and sharpen the tools that they already possess within themselves in order to realize their full potential. We are all deep beings with many layers of thoughts/feelings; pain, joy, fear, love, etc; and often we get so caught up by the details that we forget to step back and see the vastness; the bigger picture of life: that we are all connected and that there is so much more to life than our fleeting emotions or ever-evolving physical body."
Born in Italy and now living in Germany for over 6 years.
After several years of competitive climbing, Deborah discovered yoga and immediately fell in love with it. Deborah teaches Yin yoga, which is very meditative and introspective, but also a teacher of Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga, which are more dynamic practices. Before Debo left for India to become a yoga teacher she completed studies in massage, nutrition and relaxation techniques, which helped her immensely in becoming an all-round wellness teacher.
"With yoga I started to get to know my body better through the practice of asanas, I got to know my mind better through meditation,
and I started to know myself better through the calm and peace I found in the practice."
MERAV BEN DOR
Coming from a background of dance and yoga, Merav fell in love with Pilates as it helped her understand her body better, improved her dancing techniques and skills and made her stronger and longer (and if not by actual centimeters, than at least by feeling). Teaching for the last 7 years helped her regaining strength afterbirths and increased her appreciation of the human body and its capabilities. The classes suit all levels and are putting an emphasis on the connection between breathing and moving, as well as researching the work of the body as a "whole made of separate parts".
She has seen bodies change through and with the help of Pilates and believe that sometimes our body is wiser than our head, and we should just follow it to its full potential.

JORGE BRISEÑO (Jorhito)
For more than 22 years now I have been immersed in the practice of Yoga, experiencing the power of transformation. The use of embodied energies, and overall healing practices for lower back problems, through Hatha, Iyengar, and Restorative Yoga, developing a practice that built on my strength, determination, and focus in a constant search for healing methods in my daily life, bringing peace to body, mind, and spirit.
In recent years this has guided me into more waves of energy, opening the musical healing door by the hand of the Gongs. These days, I seek to dedicate my life to the nourishment of people and bring them into states of relaxation, creativity, and natural healing through the immersion of sounds and vibrations of ancient instruments.

JÚLIA VON MONFORT (JYOTI)
My Yoga journey began at the age of 15, when I had my first contact with Hatha Yoga in my hometown in the mountains of
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
After 6 years of incessant experience with Yoga, in 2018 I made my first YTTC in an International Traditional Hatha Yoga Centre: at International Sivananda School, by Swami Sivananda (200 YTT; recognised by Yoga Alliance).
Besides that I was also initiated into Hinduism with Swami Kanti Devi, from the lineage of Shankaracharya, occasion when I received my spiritual name. Was an immersion that lasted months, in which I lived in an Ashram doing Karma Yoga (service), practicing ásanas and experiencing in practice the Vedanta Philosophy in the Patagonia, region in south of Argentina.
I continued teaching in Brazil from 2018 to 2020, when I moved to Berlin.
I’m also a Ayurvedic Massagist and Holistic Healer. Dance is my favorite hobby.
My yoga journey began in 2014 when I started my first year of graduate school in Long Beach, California. What began as a casual workout routine turned into the most essential outlet for me to relieve myself from the emotional struggles that came along with navigating life in academia. While my life continued to be abundant with change and transitions, my practice has always been the one thing that really remained. My mat is the place where I feel safe, empowered, strong, and dare I even say graceful! My practice deepened in 2018 and became an irreplaceable aspect of my life--this is when I knew in my heart that I wanted to share the ways in which yoga changed my life with others. I traveled to India in June of 2019 where I completed my 200 hour program in Rishikesh, India, and have been teaching ever since. Life brought me to Berlin in early 2020, and I have been both practicing and teaching yoga at multiple studios across the city in search of community.
I always had passion for movement and it has been guiding me through different stages of life.
After dancing most of my childhood I took a break from movement, until one day, I discovered yoga.
I started practicing in 2013 and studied devoutly with my teacher for almost 8 years. In between I did two 200h TTC and a 300h TTC (Vinyasa, Hatha, Yoga Synergy), assisted in teacher trainings, and studied two years of reflexology; I am very grateful for the learning path that never ends.
All this incredible knowledge implies that the most important knowledge is already within us - body, mind, soul; we just need to notice that it is there.
This is what I practice and this is what I try to transfer in my teachings.
In my classes we arrive to ourselves through a combination of gentle and aligned movement, awareness to breath, embodiment and meditation.
Using all these methods we may discover amazing things, and how wonderful it is that we have the opportunity to take this journey together.

"Kundalini has been continuously inspiring me, I remember my first Kundalini class as the biggest gift I have received in this life journey that started transforming me to let me live an authentic life aligned with my own truth. I enjoyed practising varied types of yoga over the years, until I decided to deepen my journey in Kundalini and to spread this unique technology of Kundalini Yoga. Through the practice I cultivated a closer connection to my inner self through pranayama, chanting, asana and meditation. The more I tuned into my inner voice, the louder I heard the call to express and share my experience in teaching yoga and reflecting my creativity into spiritual jewelry. I am passionate to share this immense transformative energy which fundamentally gives you, 'you'."
I’m Alexandra, Romanian born, London grown and Berlin based :)
I’m intensely fascinated about movement and rediscovering the innate and intuitive patterns that the body holds. I guide people to reconnect to their own body intelligence by attuning to sensation, felt perception and a sense of presence.
To me, yoga is a unification of all the different parts of the human system, and so my classes are a dynamic and curious exploration of the various ways in which we experience ourselves as living beings, both within our inner and outer worlds.
I share my insights and journey on my instagram profile @alexandra.explorations
