Anastasia Shevchenko

Inner Core Yoga
Berlin, Germany

Anastasia was born in Ukraine, grew up in Canada, and now she lives in Germany. She started practicing Hatha yoga at the age of 14 back in 2002 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.

After moving to Germany, in 2013, Anastasia completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand in the Bihar School Tradition. Immediately after the training, Anastasia turned back to the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga method, that she first came in contact with back in 2011. In 2014, she finished Ashtanga yoga Teacher’s Intensive with Grischa Steffin, a long-time student of Richard Freeman. However, in 2015, Anastasia began to practice under Andrea Lutz, who teaches in the Nancy Gilgoff and David Williams tradition. Ever since, Andrea, and subsequently Nancy, became Anastasia’s main teachers, and in August 2017, she completed Ashtanga Yoga Intensive Teacher Training with Andrea. Anastasia quit Ashtanga yoga in March 2020 and now teaches in her own method called Inner Core Yoga.

Anastasia is passionate about yoga in connection to other disciplines and sciences, especially to Quantum Mechanics, Neuroscience, Psychology, Western Philosophy, Buddhism, and Nutrition.

About the Retreat

Treat yourself to one week of invigorating, rejuvenating, and transformative journey to strengthen your body, open your heart, and clear your mind. To strengthen your body, you will be practicing an energizing yoga routine each morning aimed at grounding you, revitalizing your organs, building core strength while improving your body coordination, flexibility, as well as a sense of balance.

To open your heart, you will be engaging in an evening meditation and/or simple breathing exercises with a goal to clean your lungs, calm down your nervous system, and release stress in order to create a space for connection and openness.

To clear your mind, not only will you improve your concentration and focus through breathing exercises while finding inner balance through meditation, but you will also have a chance to participate in optional after-lunch discussions on a topic about self-transformation in accordance with Yoga Philosophy supplemented by the latest findings in psychology and neuroscience.

In addition, you will benefit from being close to nature, to the sea, and to like-minded individuals who share your interests and values.
