Toni

Yoga Teacher & Psychologist-to-be

Initially, yoga intrigued me as a different and new way of working out. I did not expect the warm feeling of being in balance that I experienced after my first class already. This peaceful contentment with my body, my mind and everything around me that made me return to my mat ever since.In 2015, I travelled through India for the first time. My stay at a yoga ashram in Rishikesh inspired me to participate in a YTT myself one day in order to stregthen my self-practice and deepen my knowledge. Fulfilling this dream last spring at Trimurti Yoga in Goa, I discovered that my passion wasn't only for practising yoga, but also for teaching yoga. To me, yoga is not only the connection of body, mind and soul. It is my safe haven; my way to enable a better structuring of my thoughts; it helps prioritize what really matters and it connects me to like-minded people. Sharing that with others and supporting them on their way to mind and body awareness truly brings me joy.

In my classes, I combine strong asana sequences with deep stretches, always synchronizing both with breath to create dynamic vinyasa flows that will lead my students to leave their daily worries behind and make space for compassion, awareness and connection to themselves.
