Co-founder and Manager of Be Light

Acroyoga - Yoga - Thai Massage

Yoga Leipzig

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 being: the constant curiosity and the search for the right questions developed in turn into 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 moved on to acroyoga, yoga and Thai massage. I started teaching when I was 12. I will never stop.

Co-founder of Be Light

Meditation & Mindfulness

Yoga Leipzig

In 2013, I began leading seminars on meditation and mindfulness in the psychology program at the University of Göttingen. Since 2015, I have been teaching teaching, learning and development, especially to student teachers at the University of Leipzig. 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 provide more presence, more compassion for ourselves and others, a stronger sense of connection with fellow human beings and nature, and increased resilience to stressors.

My teaching is based on current findings in stress research and neuropsychology. I am convinced 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 is so promising.

Power yoga - Vinyasa yoga

Yoga Leipzig

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.

Yin Yoga

Yoga Leipzig

Even as a child I loved aesthetic forms of movement such as gymnastics and dancing, where you use the whole body and can express yourself so wonderfully. For many years I practiced sports acrobatics, later contemporary dance, and in college I finally found yoga. Yoga is so multi-faceted, can be practiced by anyone, and I love both the physical and the effect yoga has on the psyche and soul. To dive deeper into this knowledge, I did my training in Hatha Yoga in 2018. Since 2019, I have been teaching a wide variety of people and levels with great dedication. A holistic approach has always been very important to me, which is why I also incorporate my experience from my health counseling training, systemic coaching, NLP, mental training and ThetaHealing into my lessons.

Hatha - Vinyasa Yoga - Handstands - Acroyoga

Yoga Leipzig

Trying out my body in different kinds of movement has been one of my favorite activities since childhood.

Thus, I trained in a children's and youth circus at the age of 7 and started vaulting at a competitive level at the age of 10. At the age of 19 both hobbies came to an end, because I went abroad for the time being. Besides my geography studies (bachelor and master), I explored the world of yoga and acroyoga for several years. In 2019 I did my yoga training in Rishikesh, India and in 2020 I did another training to become an acroyoga teacher.

I love to combine my passion of movement with mindfulness, gentleness and mental health and to share and constantly expand my knowledge with others.

Linda and yoga - it was love at first sight. She stood on the mat for the first time at 17. Since then she tried many different styles of yoga and stuck mainly to hatha, yin and acro yoga. After the 1001st Downward Facing Dog, she decided to do a yoga teacher training. First in Ibiza (Yin Yoga, 2018), then in Berlin to become a children's yoga teacher and later in Guatemala at the beautiful Lake Atitlan (Hatha Yoga, 2021). Especially the last training changed her life 360 degrees.

She quit her corporate job in HR and trained as a breath and mindfulness coach. The topic of femininity has been on her mind for some time. This year she started working as a doula. She sees her true calling in the birth field and in the postpartum period. Besides yoga classes, she offers regular women's circles in Leipzig and organizes wonderful SoulRetreats in Germany and Tenerife <3 She loves the mountains, traveling and connecting with other cultures.

Linda strongly believes that everyone is allowed to find and walk their own path. In her classes she encourages practitioners to challenge themselves and at the same time not to take themselves too seriously and above all to have fun :)

I am Wieland, my favorite nickname is WiFi. Acroyoga was love at first move and since 2020 my heart goes into it. In younger years I kicked a lot at Taekwondo before I did a lot of running (barefoot), meditating and solving movement puzzles while bouldering. In the first half of 2022, I was traveling in Latin America and attended my first Montreal style acroyoga teacher training in Mexico in February. What fascinates me about this style is the Ashtanga Yoga inspired athletic challenge, the social responsibility and the dance creative energy.

Teaching is sharing what you love.

My love for acroyoga was ignited in 2016 by someone who was already on fire, fell in love with my legs, set them on fire and showed me a huge range of partner acrobatic wonder worlds in just a few months. He took me right into his classes and I learned from the beginning to pass on the fun and teach as well.
Acroyoga became my social environment, my game, my sport, my drug, my art form. Lying sleepless in bed at night, spinning one washing machine after another in your head you probably know. Looking for the even more exciting movement and I was always surprised anew. The possibilities seem endless. In the last years I traveled a lot as a teacher over the German conventions and festivals and organized regular workshop weekends and retreats. I was allowed to play and experience really a lot, meet wonderful people, make friends and pass on my passion. For that I am grateful.


I'm looking forward to seeing you guys on fire.
