Acroyoga - Yoga - Thai Massage
Movement has always been in my life: ballet, gymnastics, aerial silks, yoga and acroyoga. My relationship with gravity is a constant dance, a never-ending, ever-expanding universe.
Science has always been in my nature: the constant curiosity and the search for the right questions developed in turn in the form of a biotechnologist with a PhD in biology. As yoga, everything is science.
Teaching is my nature: I used to teach math, chemistry, English and physical chemistry. Then I continued with acroyoga, yoga and Thai massage. I started teaching when I was 12. i will never stop

Meditation & Mindfulness
In 2013, I began leading seminars on meditation and mindfulness in the psychology course at the University of Göttingen. Since 2015 I have been teaching mainly student teachers at the University of Leipzig in the field of teaching, learning and development. After more than 2000 hours of teaching experience, I can say that there is nothing more fulfilling for me than passing on knowledge and methods that lead to more presence, more compassion for ourselves and others, a greater sense of connection with fellow human beings and nature and an increased Build resilience to stressors.
My lessons are based on current findings in stress research and neuropsychology. I believe that by understanding how our brains work, we can understand why training in mindfulness and compassion belongs in every curriculum in the world, and why individual practice holds so much promise.
Power yoga - Vinyasa yoga
I started my yoga journey in 2012, qualifying as a Hot Power Yoga teaching in 2018, under the tuition of Dylan Ayaloo, who was trained by Baron Baptiste.
Originally from Leeds in the north of England, I lived in London for 20 years, mainly working as a freelance illustrator before moving to Leipzig midway though 2018.
I've always been a city person at heart but also love the natural world & it was this mixture of beautiful old buildings & green outdoor spaces that brought me to Leipzig.
Sport and exercise have been my favorite pastimes since I was a child. I started with ballet and table tennis and especially karate accompanied me for many years until I got my second brown belt. Far Eastern forms of movement, mindfulness and self-discipline fascinated me, which is why I started my yoga practice in 2016 and my first 200-hour training in Hatha Yoga in Berlin. Nevertheless, I was always interested in the roots of yoga, which is why I completed my second 300hr training in Rishikesh, India in 2017. A handstand and a Vinyasa workshop with Dylan Werner in 2019 changed my practice and knowledge immensely. My last 2-year training with 720 teaching units was based on the teachings of Sivananda and still didn't bring me to the end of my yoga path.
Yin Yoga - Shakti Flow
I'm Rebecca - a village kid who's just falling in love with the city. I did my bachelor's degree in psychology & discovered my passion for yoga during my studies. In Schwerin I then completed my first training (200 hours) at the Yoga and Ayurveda Campus & taught my own thing right from the start, which I would classify as Hatha and Vinyasa. But I also feel very comfortable in Yin Yoga. I did my second training (200h) at the Shakti Academy in Vienna and thus found access to Shakti Yoga, in which I currently feel very at home. I no longer only practice yoga on the mat, but also in everyday life & I hope I can inspire you just as much. Away from yoga, you can occasionally meet me in the skate park, at parties or festivals & preferably with other people.
