Instructors

Henriette Lorenz
“In my practice and my teaching, I emphasize on biomechanical orientation, which brings change through introspective that allows us to master our daily life dynamically but yet calmly. Physical and mental well-being. This is yoga. On the mat and off the mat! Trained in yoga therapy, I also teach students with limitations and find individual paths in the yoga practice and for everyday life.” Henriette teaches Anusara orientated yoga at all levels, with the goal of building a bridge between mat and everyday life together with her students.
Katrin Antonov
Katrin is particularly fascinated by the healing power of yoga, which is created by the combination of breath, mind and movement and, besides physical relaxation, leads to inner peace and serenity. In her clearly structured and partly demanding classes, Katrin attaches great importance to giving each student sufficient space for his or her individual needs and to discover the many facets of yoga for themselves. Katrin teaches a powerful Vinyasa Yoga at various studios in Berlin.
