Element Yoga
Berlin, Germany

Alexander Kröker is a yoga teacher and instructor, a qualified cultural pedagogue and the founder of Element Yoga. What fascinates Alex about yoga is the possibility of initiating processes with the help of the body, which are transferred to life “as a whole”. His vision is to support people in following their yoga path: to foster awareness for the possibility to create balance and to open the space for self-development. Alex’s teaching is a type of playful research, challenging and inspiring. Undogmatic, authentic and touching, he creates understanding for the connections between body, mind and heart, in the process building bridges between the yoga practice and various life themes.

Alex draws on almost two decades of experience as a yogi and yoga teacher. He completed numerous training courses in different yoga styles. Among his most important mentors and instructors are Bridget Woods Kramer, Desiree Rumbaugh, John Friend and Anna Trökes. Since 2011 Alexander (BDY/EYU, E-RYT, Anusara-inspired®) has been passing on his knowledge and training yoga teachers in Germany and Austria, for example at YogaRaum Hildesheim, Balance-Studio Leipzig, Ananya Wien and Yogakula Karlsruhe. At Element Yoga he regularly leads Element Yoga teacher trainings.

Alex conceived Element Yoga: not a “reinvention”, but a collection of methods and knowledge, which he accumulated in his philosophical-practical study of yoga. Element Yoga contains influences from Anusara Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Prana Yoga and Viniyoga. It is influenced by the tantric yoga philosophy of the 12th century as well as by modern thinkers such as Nietzsche or Foucault. Classical Hatha Yoga is complemented here by modern bodywork techniques such as Spiraldynamik, Feldenkrais and the Grinberg Method.
