Linnartz Kerstin teacher training

Kerstin Linnartz is from Germany, Berlin. She has been practicing Yoga for the past 19 years. She spent many years in India deepening her own practice and teaching students from all over the world. She is certified as “Advanced Yoga Teacher” by the Worldwide Yoga Alliance for the 500 hours standart for Registered Yoga Schools and is initiated by Swami Kailasananda (Yoga Acharya of Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashrams in Europe). She holds diploma from the “Yoga Vedanta Academy” of Rishikesh as well as the title “Yoga Acharya” (meaning “master of Yoga”- whereby Kerstin insists that in her eyes this is just a title for someone who persistantly follows her own practice humbly sharing it with others).

Besides that she trained in classical Hatha Yoga Anatomy with Yoga Acharya Swami Sivadasananda, in Ashtanga Yoga with Dr. Ron Steiner, did advanced teachers trainings regarding Breathing and Bandhas (energy locks) and studied the human Chakra System (energy centres) as well as Vedanta Philosophy, Ayurveda and several Meditation Techniques. She studied Kriya Yoga during a one year lecture after the original scriptures of Paramahansa Yogananda. In the many years of her own practice she collected lots of inspiration from numerous teachers at Yoga ashrams and centres in the USA, Europe and, of course, India. Thus her teaching combines different elements from the “system” Yoga- from classical Hatha to more dynamic Ashtanga- and she emphasizes on not only focusing on the body and to not narrow down the teaching to the mere “form”.

Her passion and the joy from Yoga touch the students in her classes and therefor Kerstin is teaching the “complete package of Yoga, which cannot only de-stress and relax your life but very much enrich it with more health, tranquility and real joy shining from inside out.” Having 15 years of experience on stages and in studios as a TV-presenter Kerstin knows how to use body and voice to really reach the receiver. She uses this talent to help her students into a deep experience during their own practice and shows them how to take “Yoga from the mat into everyday life”.

“Yoga has changed my life 180 degrees. It helped me to let go of stress and drama in my life. It has given me the tools to again and again tap into the source and turned me into one of the happiest and healthiest people I know. Yoga shows you a way to treat yourself better, to be a better version of yourself. This is the experience I want to share.”
