Yoga came into my life 6 years ago, and it completely changed my life for the better in so many ways. From my healing my thyroid issue, to healing my relationship with myself, my body, and my relationships with others. This is why I have made it my mission to share these practices further.
For me, teaching in person, as well as online, are both very special experiences in their own way.
Creating the right atmosphere, physical adjustments, and feeling the group energy in a room are irreplaceable. In Vienna I currently teach yoga at Mandalahof Vienna. It is a very special location just in the heart of Vienna’s 1st district at Fleischmarkt 16, with a rooftop terrace overlooking the Vienna inner city. The space is infused with good energy, and you can feel it the moment you enter the yoga room.
On the other hand the freedom, time flexibility, and potential for self-exploration one has by practicing at home while being guided at the same time are absolutely incredible. I myself spent at least a year practicing at home, and am completely convinced by the amazing benefits of this type of practice, and its potential to connect us to each other, be it via a screen.
Both my in-person and online classes can be booked through my booking tool here, or via myClubs (simply look up Golden Hour Yoga) if you are based in Austria.
Holding an inclusive space is extremely important for me. No fancy pants necessary. My sessions are a space for all genders, races, ages, bodies - come as you are. Ultimately yoga is a journey inward, and everybody's journey is different. But we can all walk it alongside each other, and maybe find a new way to connect to one another along the way.
Your yoga practice is your own time for yourself. I am there to guide you, make sure you are safe, and teach the practices that have changed my life for the better. With everything I show or suggest, you always have a choice to simply rest instead. We all come to practice each time with completely different needs. Lying on your back in shavasana for an hour is also yoga.
In my live classes, it is important for me to make sure students have the correct alignment in order to practice asanas in a safe way. This is why I'll often be walking around giving adjustments. If this is something you don't like, or there is an injury or other physical condition worth mentioning, please, let me know in advance to the class. You will find more information about this in our Terms and Conditions.
In online classes, it is always awesome to keep your camera on, so I can see you too. I am not able to give physical adjustments as in an offline class, but I can still often spot things that can be adjusted over the screen. I'll usually ask you to mute yourself during the practice, and unmute at any point in case there is something you want to ask.
Many people think you need a number of yoga tools, props, and accessories, in order to be able to practice online at home. Truth to be told, for the first few months of me practicing yoga at home, I practiced on my carpet. For the next 2 years, I practiced on a 10-euro gym mat, and until a few months ago, I didn't own any yoga props at all. Books are great blocks, tennis balls make great massage and fascia release balls, and scarves are perfectly fine yoga straps. You do you.
