I am a Hatha yoga teacher working in Kreuzberg. Over a period of two years, I completed a 600 hour teacher training course, taking the time to absorb the most important principals of this practice. This training is recognized by the Berufsverband der Yogalehrenden in Deutschland (BDY), World Movement of Yoga and Ayurveda and the European Yoga Federation. Since 2008 I have dedicated myself to teaching Hatha Yoga full time and am delighted to be teaching yoga in English in Berlin.

This teacher's yoga changed my life

I used to think yoga was kind of a joke. I had taken classes all over the world but never found a teacher or a practice to commit to until I met Pinelopi. Her kindness, calming nature and sensitivity are just the beginning of what makes her so wonderful to take classes from...

She is fluent is several languages and as a result her teaching and word choices are very descriptive and deliberate. Her voice is soothing yet strong. She not only often demonstrates a pose but also breaks it down into levels depending on how you are feeling on a given day. This encourages a high level of body awareness and self care. Very in-tune with the people in her class, she pays close attention to needs and adjustments while keeping an overall class flow. She is deep and spiritual enough to make you certain that you are doing something profound for your body mind and spirit, but she never goes off on terrible esoteric rants or delves in ignorant over simplifications of karma. Her classes are extremely well planned and it is clear that each move has been designed to flow into the next, to balance out the energy and work being done on both sides of a pose, and ultimately to produce pleasure in the body for maximum benefit.

I was fortunate enough to study with her for almost 2 years. Pinelopi's instruction now goes with me everywhere, even into lesser yoga classes. The breathing techniques and paying attention to my own limits along with her amazing guided meditations have become a cornerstone of my evolutionary process. I am INCREDIBLY grateful.

wonderful teacher!

10 years ago I had a very bad yoga teacher experience, I hurt my back for half a year. Needless to say I was quite scared to try it again.
Pinelopi with her warmth and welcoming way taught me to accept my body and mind for where they are. Observing instead of judging.
" the grass doesn't grow from pulling" she said- a lesson, I'm greatful to say, trickled to other areas of my life.
I recommend Pinelopi as a teacher with all my heart.

Best teacher I met so far!

Pinelopi is a great teacher.
She is open, friendly and obviously enjoying what she does.
I wanna recommend her for beginners as well as experienced yoga students. She is demonstrating as well as explaining. And she always offers various stages, so you can go as far as is good for you. She is encouraging you to figure out what feels good for your body while also respecting your limits. Your own possibilities and boundaries are more important then competing or receiving a certain goal. Adjustments are made, if you want to.
She taught me to focus on myself to be able to let go.
Most people leave her classes with a huge smile on their faces :)
