Interested in my point of view?

As some of you might know I used the last two years to get educated. I chose Lara’s 200hr Training and followed up with her 300hr modules. In December 2021 I received my 500hr certification in the LYT Yoga® Method. After teaching for over a decade I never thought I would see the need for another level 1 yoga teacher training. But then I found LYT Yoga®.

This training enabled me to understand the esoteric dialogue I taught even better. After all I grew up in this modern world, this modern life with all its yearning and need for answers. LYT Yoga® gave me the competence to explain the WHYs more than I could ever have imagined.

It made me not only a better teacher but also a better educator. Because let’s be honest, if you go home from class and got nothing else than a few moments of fun, no take-aways, no useful tools for your all-day-life… that’s surely not enough, is it?

Ok, this is from the official LYT Yoga website but it’ll give you the perfect reasons to sign up for this training.

This 200hr teacher training is the most comprehensive anatomy-based yoga teacher training I know of. Taught by Physical Therapist and creator of LYT Yoga®, Lara Heimann, this highly regarded online yoga course is designed to learn the body as a system for elevating consciousness. This core curriculum covers the 10 core LYT Yoga® classes and breaks down the anatomy, safe cuing, and philosophy you need to start teaching and making a positive impact on people’s lives right away.

Course starts January 23rd, 2022!

and if you decide to go for it I will be here for your support ❤️

Not sure about you but I want to move in a healthy way until my time is up here on this planet. When I look back down my own (yoga) road with all the encounters, all the decisions I made it led me to this way of movement.

With LYT Yoga I found another piece of the puzzle for a sustainable way to do exactly that. Its approach in redefining yoga through better education and innovation, transforming yoga through safer and smarter movement patterns is simply logical and irresistible. For me and many others it’s the modern evolution of yoga based on physical therapy and functional movement.

YogaMand’s Schedule ::: Apr 3 to Apr 10

“Use your injury for your advantage” ~ Abbie Galvin


Four days with no asana practice at all, and only since yesterday I can do some gentle stretching to keep my body mobile. My yoga practice consists of lots of breathing and meditation. Lots of time to reflect, contemplate and reconsidering … things 🤔

It’s so hard for me and I guess for all of us who are so used to move and practice physically each and every single day to accept that your body, your inner guru, your teacher needs a break. ‚He‘ usually send signs and all the phrases of ‚listen to your body‘ and such .. well, I thought I’d listen but obviously I didn’t. My body’s system shut down, zero, made me practice CouchAsana 🛋

There is a higher meaning in everything. It’s just hard and sometimes even harder to see it and to realize that Universe takes unexpected turns simply because ‚It‘ knows better.

Well, I hopefully learned my lesson. So, here’s to #Patience with Savasana, Child’s Pose and supported #FishPose #Matsyasana with the help of my #DharmaYogaWheel #DYW 🐠 the only poses I am able to practice right now without any restraints. I’m honest … I truly enjoy it but to the same amount I miss my regular home practice 😕

so, no weekly schedule this week but I’m pretty sure some amazing teachers are subbing in for my classes on

Wednesday, Apr 6 , 1630 ~ Back Care, Jivana, Stuttgart
Thursday, Apr 7, 1630 ~ Katonah Vinyasa, Vinyasa Yoga Sindelfingen

Enjoy your practice, Lovelies ❤
