Read more about the Yoga instructors:

Amanda is a professionally trained and certified advanced yoga instructor with over 1,000 hours of training in India by renowned yoga teachers and physiotherapists Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss of the Synergy Yoga School. She has been teaching yoga since 2011.
Her style is a vinyasa flow class with the foundations of teaching grounded in the concepts of synergy yoga. This style uses techniques accessible to the modern body and alignment cues that move energy through the body in a way that reduces stress and builds strength.
Unique to this style:
-Emphasis on spinal movements from the core that free up all the vertebrates of the spine to enliven the body and counter bad posture in our daily lives
-Fluid transitions that can have a dance like feel to them

-Movements and poses that embody the sthira/sukham (steadiness with ease) yoga philosophy so the practice can flow like a moving meditation. It gives a soft feeling while building strength in an intelligent way that does not add more stress to the body
-Strong emphasis on muscle co-activation (bandhas) which allow the student to gain access to all parts of the body to promote healing and a deeper mind/body connection
In addition to encompassing the concepts of synergy yoga, Amanda´s classes are constantly evolving as her knowledge grows and expands across yoga disciplines. Classes intertwine all aspects of the yoga discipline including healing breathing practices, meditation, and philosophy/mindfulness techniques that help ease the mind of daily life stresses.

Mascha studied Sport Science and is also a qualified Yoga Teacher and Bodyworker. She is teaching Yoga since 2005 and is running her own Vinyasa Yoga Studio Sukha Yoga in Cologne, Germany since 2012.
Mascha completed several Yoga and Yoga Therapy Teacher Trainings in India, Australia and Germany and also studied a lot about Ayurvedic Treatments, Thai Yoga Massage and different Bodywork and Relaxation
She is fascinated about the ways the human body can naturally move and includes all forms of spinal movements into her teaching.
Her holistic approach of Vinyasa Yoga combines Yoga Flow, Meditation, Pranayama, Restorative, Nada Yoga (Yoga of Sounds) and Yoga Nidra, so that Body, Mind and Soul can come to rest and gain new energy and health.
She also loves ceremonies and includes chanting into the daily routine to really incorporate all aspects of yoga.
