I am Anna, 28 years old, freshly married and live in Ulm. When I was a child, I took ballet lessons, followed by many years of modern dance and Latin American dances. Early on I had the chance to develop a feeling for my own body. Only much later I get to know yoga. Now with O.MY.YOGA I realize my dream to share my passion for yoga.
What does yoga mean for me? Yoga is for me the perfect symbiosis of body and mind. I discovered my passion in it. Because every single exercise session on the mat makes me happy. For me yoga means a balance to everyday life, a break from daily to-dos (duties), a physical challenge, a haven for my thoughts and quite simply spoken: MeTime! I discovered my passion for yoga during my nearly four-year stay abroad in Singapore. There, in 2014, I started practicing yoga intensively. First of all I visited Vinyasa / Flow classes. I still love the dynamic and playful part on these styles. Soon, however, I started to try out other styles and found my great passion in classical Ashtanga-Yoga. A yoga style characterized by a fixed sequence. When I teach, I like to combine these styles with each other. The flowing movements of Vinyasa-Yoga made a wonderful symbiosis with components from classical Ashtanga-Yoga. Together, they create a harmonious flow of movement, peppered with muscle building exercises, deep muscle stretching and relaxation.
I like to teach my lessons on a certain topic: sometimes I focus on exercises to strengthen the back muscles, another time the stamina or stretching is in the foreground. Every hour is unique and exciting! The common practice is interesting for beginners as well as advanced yogis, because of the different design variants of the poses, the degree of difficulty can be adjusted individually. I also attach great importance to teaching in small groups. That’s how I can respond to all yogis.
In the spring of 2017, I successfully completed my 200 Hatha / Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training Certificate. Followed by the 300hr Advanced Yoga Teacher.
No day has passed since then when I do not teach or follow my own yoga practice.
