about cindy

I am a passionate yoga teacher and coach. Health and movement are central to my life. With my classes I get people moving, both mentally and physically. I bring Yin and Yang, action, and rest, for beginners as well as for advanced practitioners. These moments of reflection are an invitation for body and mind to find your unique strength outside your comfort zone. To do this, I use the five-element theory. Every stretch in your body is linked to an energy pathway. With the right movements and stretches we remove blockages and let the energy flow again. The connection between body and mind and taking time for yourself are two of the most important pillars for a happy and healthy life.  And that is what I would like you to experience.

about marco

My name is Marco, I have Italian roots and grew up in Munich (Germany). I originally worked as a sales rep until a friend introduced me to yoga in 2009. I was immediately hooked! Not so much because of the yoga poses, but because of the unforgettable music, atmosphere, and fascinating contacts. I decided to deepen my knowledge of yoga and went to Thailand to learn more about yoga and Qi Gong. Later I traveled to America for further training. Today I work as a holistic health professional and yoga & Qi Gong teacher. During my classes I want you to be your natural self and create a sense of belonging.
