Some background information first.

When I first planned the program for the Berlin Yoga Conference, I invited teachers exclusively from out of town. My idea for this was the following: Berliners already had access to these amazing Berlin teachers, so why not bring the teachers from other cities and countries then? Furthermore, I even set a specific ration of national (German) VS international (from outside of Germany and Europe) teachers to be 50/50, which is still very much the case.

However, with time I realized that my thinking was not wholistic. Since I wanted this to become an international yoga event that reflects on the local yoga community, I needed to get the Berlin teachers on board, to give them a chance to present themselves to an international audience and to get them involved in this major Berlin yoga happening. This is how the idea for the Berlin Yoga Conference Festival Program was born.

Ricarda’s expertise lies especially in making yoga and mindfulness more available to the people who are new to the practice, in unfamiliar and non-yoga related settings, such as for example, motivating the people from business/corporate environments find more mental and physical health at their office or in the park, or, bringing the yoga practice into the nightclubs.

Workshops at the Berlin Yoga Conference

Ricarda will be teaching the following class at the Berlin Yoga Conference May 24-26:

Yin Yoga with headphones | 20:30-22:00 | Saturday, 25.05

The unique concept of relaxing into different Yin Asanas by wearing wireless headphones and listening to the beautiful sounds and receiving gentle into your ear instructions will take you away, while allowing you to keep the focus on yourself. Yin Yoga is a very passive style of Yoga that allows you to dive deeper into the ”asanas” a.k.a. poses by holding them for 2-6 minutes. These events are sponsored by Aero Cosmos.
