Antonia Lingemann

Antonia is Berlins first Katonah Yoga teacher, which is a Hatha based practice from New York developed by Nevine Michaan over the last 40 years.

It uses asana as Origami for bodies and incorporates taoist theory, geometry, mythology, metaphor and imagination. The goal is to look around yourself, to be well adjusted and to develop a sense of personal measure. To realize that the universe is intelligent and functional and that you fit yourself perfectly. It sees the body as a house and therefore the practice is about learning to find joy in the house you’re living in.

For her a good yoga class combines the trinity of body, mind and breath in order to stay present in the practice and to find the comfort in the uncomfortable.
