I am a mum, partner, International yoga teacher, founder of The Vinyasa People yoga Studios, co-owner of Yin Nation Store, blogger, YouTuber and a Lululemon legacy ambassador based in Bonn, Germany.
I flirted with yoga for a few years before finding a teacher that truly inspired me to take the practice further. During my pregnancy I attended class religiously three times a week and that was it, I was hooked! I went on to complete my RYT 200 Hour training with Seasonal Yoga in Glasgow and then my RYT 300 with Tribe in Austria. I attended workshops and trainings whenever I could, completing a 50 Hour Adjustment training with the incredible David Swenson and a Second series workshop with Laruga Glaser. In 2018 I undertook my 2nd 200-hour teacher training with the team over at Miami Life center under the tutorage of Tim Feldmann and Kino MacGregor. Since then I have practiced several times with the wonderful John Scott, in both India and Italy, deepening my Ashtanga practice and love.
In 2014 I moved to Germany with my beautiful family, settling in the wonderful city of Bonn. I started teaching for free from my living room to make friends but the number of students quickly grew and I had to look for a larger space. The Sportraum became my new yoga home for almost a year before I decided to open up my own studio to create a purpose based space dedicated to all things yoga. The Vinyasa People Yoga Studio was born and the next chapter on my yoga journey began! With the help of my partner Philipp, I opened The Vinyasa People Yoga in January 2016. It is a beautiful international yoga studio in the heart of Bonn offering a wide variety of classes to suit everyone. In the studio I teach a mix of Seasonal flow, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Yin to create to a deep, dynamic and fun practice. All levels of practitioners are welcome to join my classes as long as they are prepared to move and sweat.
I keep myself busy with a few extra-curricular activities. I love to spend my time writing my blog and filming yoga videos for both online platforms and my YouTube channel.A YouTube Channel has always been a wish of mine and this year I finally got a channel up and running. My vision for my channel is to offer yoga classes and how-to videos for all students not able to practice with me in Bonn; Cristina in Japan, I’m talking to you!
In 2017 filmed a series for Doyouyoga.com, an online yoga platform offering yoga classes. It was a big honor to work with an amazing team and the feedback has been incredible! around the same time, I became a Lululemon Ambassador for Cologne I have always loved Lululemon and I am more than happy to work with the team and represent!
