and go beyond

the mission

Live outside the box, go beyond of what you know, out of your comfort zone and grow. Into your true self, a better version of yourself, a more relaxed self, a stronger self, more accepting – whatever: you decide.

Let Yoga be free! Free of dogma, free of antiquated attitudes, free of discrimination, free of limitations of brands and styles. Demystify Yoga, get to the essence of the teachings and update it with evidence-based science

Knowledge will set you free. It’s not the easy way out, but a one worthwhile walking.

Walk your own way.

I started with Yoga when I was a teenager to become fitter and outgrow my couch potato body. Later, during my studies in Berlin I learned to appreciate the stress relief that Yoga brings about. Hit by personal loss and followed by an episode of escapism, I spend a few years lost. I turned to Yoga again and spend a while in India, became a Yoga teacher and met my Teacher and friend Yogi Sivadas.

I taught Yoga in England for a few years, became a personal trainer and then returned to Berlin to set up Freistil. I quickly came to understand that the sporty kind I was teaching wasn’t applicable to most of my clients. Visiting other Yoga classes I was shocked by the lack of anatomical knowledge of most teachers. Long story short: I studied Physiotherapy to be 100% on the anatomy and be really able to help people feeling better.
