Change might not be fast and it isn’t always easy. But with time and effort, almost any habit can be reshaped. ~ Charles Duhigg

Back in 2013 I started to work consciously with changing habits. First it was the uniqueness and the different way to move my body taught by Katonah Yoga Center ❤️. Change in movement bears the potential of insight and with the help of Marc Holzman I changed my daily habits regarding food, sleep, routines and allowing exceptions – relapses included.

In adding the LYT method created by Lara Heimann to my own practice and teachings another piece of the puzzle fell into place. Realising that strengthening the core is inertly connected to my core values made me realise that strengthening the body in a smart and intelligent way makes me work on a better version of myself on so many levels.

Connecting the mind and the soul through working on your body!

As a teacher it is my job to help you with the body part. The rest is up to you. Make it happen. Increase your movement experience, reshape your movement patterns with me on

When you fold bodies, you don’t fold bodies in half because bodies are designed not with only the front and back. A body is designed with a front and a back and an inside, so the body folds in thirds. Paper folds in half. When you fold paper, you play it for folding origami. But when you play with bodies, you play for fitting. ~ Nevine Michaan

When you play with things organically, seeds don’t start from below. They drop from above. A bird will drop a seed into the ground, or a farmer will drop a seed, or a flower will produce a seed—and then it has to fall down to earth. Seeds don’t start from down and go up; they start from up and they go down. Then they flip and they turn back up. Because they follow the light. ~ Nevine Michaan

Let’s flip things and start FROM ABOVE.

A social movement that only moves people is merely a revolt. A movement that changes both people and institutions is a revolution. ~ Marin Luther King Jr.

What a revolutionary time we live in. The last couple of days and weeks I drew back to listen, to reflect, to reposition myself, to find my position first. My yoga practice supports me in having a clearer vision about myself, about the things going on around me.

Next Friday, June 12 a LYT Yoga class is taught AROUND THE WORLD by all of the amazing LYT Yoga teachers to support a local, national or even larger charity that is fighting against racism. We’re all in this together, and there’s nothing this community can’t do when we stand up and united.

I will teach an FUNDRAISING CLASS ONLINE next Friday.

It’s no longer about us but a bigger cause. It matters what we do on a larger scale.

From Slavery to Shackles

I never considered myself biased or felt complicit. Growing up with all kinds of people from different countries, one of my first lovers was an African-American, I work with Indians, African-Americans, Italians, Russians, … my godson is the love of my best friend and her African-American partner. I never felt any different towards anyone ever in my life.

And then .. I don’t have ANY PoC (People of Colour) in my yoga classes and I ask myself why is that so? Is it because the studio is too expensive? Is it because PoC don’t feel welcome in that studio? Is it because of me? I really don’t know. I was wondering if it is something I DO or DON’t do.

From Slavery to Handcuffs.

I want to learn more about the history of slavery now & then and what this White Privilege is all about.

I am determined to learn

– about white supremacy, racism, and bias in my own life and how I am complicit

– how I can leverage my privilege to create actual change

– how to show up better and embody anti-racism every day and not only when it’s prominent in news and media

To make a start I watched this documentary on Netflix last night. It gives you a searing understanding of the historic context of the systemic race problem. I was stunned. Not only because I saw what I saw but seeing the similarities to our – the German’s – own history of racism during German Reich.

“People say all the time, ‘I don’t understand how people could’ve tolerated slavery. How could they have made peace with that? How could people have gone to a lynching and participated in that? How did people make sense of the segregation, this white and colored-only drinking … This is so crazy. If I was living at that time, I would have never tolerated anything like that.’ – And the truth is, we are living at this time, and we are tolerating it.” ~ Bryan Stevenson, Interviewee

Justice too long delayed is justice denied. Now is the time to understand, and the whole world has to deal with it.

🖤🖤

(I am aware this is not my area of expertise. I am simply sharing a documentary recommendation.)

A human being is highly adaptable. We can learn something new at ANY GIVEN time. We all have it in us. Sometimes we have to put a lot of effort in it. Sometimes it comes as easy as a breeze. We like to call this special ability of our nervous system to optimise itself when conditions are changing DEVELOPMENT or EVOLUTION.

Let us use this potential and grab your chance.

GET READY to evolve!

Studios in Baden-Württemberg are re-opening next week. This means I can teach & practice with you 𝐈𝐍-𝐏𝐄𝐑𝐒𝐎𝐍. Teaching in times of Corona can only happen when everyone is complying to the rules. Since every studio has specific regulations I kindly ask you to check in with your home studio.

During my retreat last week I had the chance to get used to the different way of teaching and practicing.

I am utterly grateful for all the tools and methods I had the chance to learn and embody over the last couple of weeks, months & years. Because of these tools my body & mind owns a readiness and I only needed a day to adapt to this new way of teaching.
The retreat became a STELLAR experience for all of us.
