Nina began experiencing Yoga in 2006, at the age of 22. Since then it has become an inseparable part of her life. Based in Berlin at the time, Nina learned her basic knowledge of the body and anatomy in her training as a gymnastic teacher in 2005.
After graduating she went to Cologne and studied at the Sport University of Cologne (2009) in order to deepen her knowledge of the human body and mind. Though she was studying biology and sports, she never lost her focus and connection to the spiritual dimension to her life.
She decided to deepen even more her knowledge of Yoga, Mindfulness and Breathwork and completed the 200h Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training at The Yogaloft Cologne, with Sonia Taylor Bach. After her exams she started teaching Vinyasa Yoga in Cologne.
It took six more months before she would quit her regular job as a pedagogist at the Sports Academy 1.FC Köln, and devote herself to her passion, living Yoga to the fullest, each and every day, sharing its beauty with others.
In 2018 she completed a 50h Yin Yoga Training with Vira Drothbom. A 50h Training with Raghunath Yogi (NYC) in Philiosophy, Sanskrit, Ethik and Life of a Yogi. A 20h PostnatalYoga Training with Melanie Pfeifer. She is currently completing the 300h Teacher Training at The Yogaloft Cologne. Nowadays Yoga is her daily companion and family.
On a yoga retreat with Nina you will be able to discover the energy, the elegance and power inherent to your love for yourself, whether you are a beginner or an advanced yogi. Feeling the movement of your own body and thoughts (vrittis) becomes an essential part of each class that Nina shares with you. To feel at home and not lose sight of yourself is one of her goals when she teaches.
Whether it is Yin Yoga style or more dynamic Vinyasa, Hata flow, Nina guides you through class with total dedication and passion for the body, good alignment and a sense of humor.
Sometimes it just takes a beautiful place to breathe in freedom. Life is too important to be taken seriously.
