She has been doing Yoga for the last 17 years. Kerstin Linnartz spent many years here in India to deepen her own practices and teaching the students from across the world. Kerstin Linnartz is certified as an “Advanced Yoga Instructor” by Worldwide Yoga Alliance, for 500 hours standards for Registered Yoga School and commenced by Swami Kailasananda. She got diploma from “Yoga Vedanta Academy” in Rishikesh in addition to the title of “Yoga Acharya”. Moreover, she trained in the classical Hatha Yoga Anatomies with Acharya Swami Sivadasananda, at Ashtanga Yoga with Doctor Ron Steiner, did highly developed teachers training regarding Bandhas (energy lock) and Breathing and studied human Chakra System as well as Ayurveda, and Vedanta Philosophy. She studied Yoga Kriya during a year lecture after original scripture of Paramahansa Yogananda.
During the numerous years of her practice she got lots of inspirations from various teachers at the Yoga centers and ashrams in Europe, the USA, and India of course. Thus her teachings combine different elements from “system” Yoga- from the classical Hatha to a more active Ashtanga and she focuses not only on focusing on your body and not to narrow down the teachings to the meager “forms”.
Yoga has changed my life 180 degrees. It helped me to let go of stress, drama and chaos in my life. It turned me into one of the happiest and healthiest people i know. Yoga shows you a way to treat yourself better. This is an experience I want to share.
