For a long time, sport was associated for me with competition and success. Ever since I was a child, performance-oriented sports like dressage and handball were simply part of my life. Later, I became interested in fitness and spinning and also started giving spinning classes myself. After hundreds of spinning classes and half-marathons, I was looking for balance to the intense cardio and strength training.
The frustration after my first yoga class and what it did to me
I thought my first yoga class would be super easy. In my head, yoga was totally easy and something for "housewives". For me as a super fit, young athlete, it shouldn't be a problem. At least that's what I thought.
Maybe this was exactly the turning point for me as an athlete, because my ambition has not let me go until today. In general, I was and am convinced that you always have to try things several times. This moment after my first yoga class confirmed this in a very special way.
Why business yoga is just right for me
After countless hours on the mat, I liked it so much that I wanted to learn even more about yoga and its philosophy. I completed two teacher trainings in Vinyasa (Power) Yoga. I also learned that the physical practice on the mat is only a small part of yoga as we often understand it in the western world. Therefore, I decided to learn more about the mental level (of yoga) and completed meditation, mindfulness and resilience trainings.
I work in a very agile environment, used to travel a lot and was constantly on the go. The search for a balance was quickly successful and very close: yoga, meditation and changing my lifestyle . After many years of practising yoga, yoga is now both mental and physical training for me.
Authenticity is also very important to me as a yoga teacher and I can implement this best in a business context.
Life is about balance
Yoga and meditation offer me balance, no matter how turbulent my environment is. Yoga has taught me: don't look at others, but be the best version of yourself. Achieve YOUR Prime.
