Anja and Sophia met at a yoga retreat in Byron Bay, Australia in 2012. Both busy professionals, they bonded over their mutual loves of Yoga and Wellbeing, and just how much these benefited them in their busy lives.
Anja's teaching combines a dynamic and free-flowing style of Vinyasa Yoga with Pranayama and visualizations. Yoga is more than asanas; it is a practice for every age and every body type. This is what Anja likes to pass on to her students.
Safe and correct alignment of asanas is important in Anja's teachings. She gives comprehensive anatomical instructions and applies "hands on assists" to guide students into certain asanas. She teaches in German or English.
When Anja is not teaching or doing yoga she works for a multinational pharma company in Vienna as a patent attorney. She also holds a phD in Chemistry.
Anja is a 200-hour certified Yoga Teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance. She completed her Vinyasa-Flow Teacher Training with Claire Missingham in London and a Restorative Teacher Training with Lizzie Lasater in Vienna and Yin yoga teacher trainings with Mona Abter in Goa, India and Sati Tias in Moedling, Austria.
