Andreas J Bartneck

My name is Andy, '77.

Exploring and traveling the world, immersing myself in the immeasurable wealth of our earthly homeland and meeting diverse cultures as well as discovering the whole thing in a puddle is my compass.

Climbing the mountains, diving in the oceans, feeling the wind on a motorcycle ride, sitting in zazen, practicing a "downdog" (Adho Mukha Svanasana), receiving a hug or listening to music for a moment means to me the joy of life - here and now.


I teach yoga out of an intrinsic motivation to share the joy, self-compassion and happiness, and also to pass on the ancient wisdom.

"We are all mirrors, which are our bodies and we are all reflections which are our minds."

Yoga teaching style

My style is primarily focused on activating your individual abilities and also on the energy level in the present moment of the class or session.

In addition, I pay attention to beneficial alignments and breathing patterns throughout the class.

In general, I conduct classes that include meditation, pranayama, asana for different levels at once, and relaxation sequences. 

languages

I teach all yoga classes in German and/or English and also use the Sanskrit form of asana poses or mantras.

I lead all sessions in Somatic Movement and Mindful Practices in either German or English.
