I am a yoga alliance trained teacher from the Yandara school in Mexico (2008). Since 1997, I’ve practiced a variety of different styles of Hatha yoga in Toronto and Vancouver, Canada – Asthanga, Iyengar, Kundalini, Chi-Yoga, Bikram, Vinyasa Flow, Restorative and Acro-Yoga – each class I offer is unique. I’ve been teaching Vinyasa Flow here in Berlin since 2009. I'm currently enrolled in the Svastha Yoga Therapy advanced teacher training program, all of my classes now include prevention and restorative techniques.
In my classes I try to foster openness towards others with bodies different than your own or the ideal, including queer-, trans-, sex-worker-, poc- and fat-positivity. I am a crusty, fluid-gendered-qpoc-hairy femme. I aim to make a class comfortable for those who feel marginalized in more mainstream classes.
I’m a DIY-practitioner in most aspects, despite formal education and years of experience. I like to try out new creative practices. From an early age, I began with gymnastics, jazz dance, piano, and sculpture. I studied at the Ukrainian Academy of Dance in Toronto for 4 years, before finding a yoga practice. Throughout this time, I also studied film and worked in the film industry as a sound designer. I’ve made about 35 short art films of my own, taught media arts workshops and courses, and have been involved in organizing various film collectives, festivals, and screenings. I moved to Germany to play an active part in my young niece’s life and to volunteer on the organizing collective of the radical left-political queer film festival, entzaubert. I am optimistic that the revolution will come, and I try to play my part in dismantling structures of oppression through whatever I do.
