Grischa has been teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga since 2002 and founded Berlin's first Ashtanga Yoga Studio in 2004.
Grischa has been studying with his main teacher Richard Freeman since 2004. He has twice attended Richard's month long teacher intensives as well as some of his advanced teacher intensives and other workshops.
The aim of his teaching is to support his students in finding a balanced practice based on good - mainly internal - alignment. The foundation of this approach is an intelligent understanding of the fundamental principles as taught by Pattabhi Jois.
This finally leads to a concentrated Yoga practice which naturally becomes a very gentle and light.
Grischa has also attended many workshops and teacher intensives with senior Ashtanga teachers like Chuck Miller, Maty Ezraty, Ron Reid und Marla Meenakshi, Nancy Gilgoff, John Scott, Dena Kingsburg, Rolf Naujokat, Petri Räisänen, Manju Jois, Sharath Rangaswami und Pattabhi Jois. He studied Vedanta in India with Swami Dayananda.
