Our Team

Anastasia Shevchenko

Anastasia Shevchenko

Anastasia was born in Ukraine, grew up in Canada, and now she lives in Germany. She started practicing Hatha yoga at the age of 15 back in 2003 after being diagnosed with scoliosis. Through a disciplined practice, Anastasia learned first-hand the self-healing aspect behind yoga, that was tested once more after an accident that left her with a broken and paralyzed arm when she was 19.

Shortly after moving to Germany in 2013, Anastasia completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training, followed by an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher’s Intensive in 2014 and an Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training in 2017. Ever since, she has been teaching classes, workshops, and giving lectures on yoga philosophy. Anastasia’s favorite topics of research are connected to Quantum Mechanics, Neuroscience, Psychology, Western Philosophy, Buddhism, and Nutrition. 

Having studied design, holding a bachelor in Communications, and co-producing an arts festival in Berlin, Anastasia decided to turn her skills and experiences towards creating a new type of yoga event that would motivate and inspire people to take up the yoga path and use it for their self-healing, self-development, and self-transformation.

According to Mari: Our everyday life is already filled with paradigms, guidelines, should & musts, etc.- A real balance and a steady practice can only be achieved through fun, ease and the ability to incorporate the practice into everyday life.
