Why English Yoga Meetup?
Have you ever felt like...
You are motivated to build up a regular yoga practice and the next day you feel worried by signing up for a contract at your local studio, because the conditions are not very flexible?
You are new as a foreigner in Germany and wanna join a local club to do some excersises, but your German skills are very limited?
You are new in town and wanna meet some others outside of your workplace environment to socialize, but you have noticed that you just can't connect with people, who don't share the same interests like you?
If so, you’re human! Probably most expats in Germany feel like this at some point or another.
Here is the truth...
Being an expat in Germany and living a healthy lifestyle can be challenging sometimes. You might feel alone and there may be some ups and downs. But all the while it's exciting, to live in another country.
How English Yoga Meetup can help...
- On-site Pop-up yoga classes at cool locations 100% in English
- Wellbeing workshops to learn more about holistic health
What inspired you to start English Yoga Meetup?
During my 5 months sabbatical in Australia, I did my yoga teacher training, because I had suffered from chronic back pain and wanted to learn more about human anatomy and a way to treat my pain naturally. During the training, I realised that I like to teach. So back from my trip, I have launched a yoga group on the Meetup app. Only three days after my return and still jet-lagged I held my first class in Grüneburgpark with only two students. Since then it has grown to Frankfurt’s biggest international yoga community.
I also wanted to make yoga accessible to international people, who don’t necessarily speak German. During my travels I have noticed how hard it is to do yoga, if you don’t understand the instructions. I also have an international circle of friends in Frankfurt and noticed that people struggle with the German language. Working in a yoga studio didn’t work out for me, because I still have my full time job aside. So, I needed to come up with my own side business, that allows me to teach, when I have time.
Describe your perfect day in Frankfurt!
I start my morning routine with gratitude - just to remind me of the things I am grateful for in my life. Ideally it starts with my home-made breakfast in a coconut bowl in my kitchen. I love to do exercises in the morning. So, joining a yoga class or teaching the class is the perfect start into my day. Then some yummy lunch at Mathilda’s Kitchen.
I love to discover new places, because routine kills me. In the evening I slow down a bit, keep the smartphone aside and do my yoga stretches before I got to bed.
