Roland Jensch and Liz Huntly

Liz and Rolands rich teaching is rooted in their own intensive practices. Fundamental knowledge of anatomy and detailed technical instruction forms the basis for leading students towards difficult asanas. The focus is not so much on success within the pose, as on creating a space for students to experiment and unfold. The journey is the destination and the journey takes you to your deepest self.

Liz and Rolands style is profoundly spiritual, and at the same time playful. They skillfully guide students in discovering and understanding the physical body, creating a potential for mental and energetic transformation. Their teaching is infused with fierce love, joy, and laughter.

Alongside regular classes in Cologne, Germany, Liz and Roland teach workshops, retreats, and teacher training internationally in both English and German. They contribute to various magazines and blogs, including the German-language Yoga Journal and Yoga Aktuell.

    "I had a lovely time in Morocco with Global Flow. Yoga and surfing is the perfect combination. All the teachers where very dedicated and friendly. Besides yoga, the teacher knows a lot about nutrition, that was very interesting. Further we stayed with a nice group in a luxury apartment, eating delicious food together in the living room or the big table outside, made by Suze. She was a really good hostess. I can definitely recommend this retreat, it was a great experience!! Thanks!"
