Yogi of the Month – Interview

Due to the fact that I have been nominated as <a href=”http://www.vedayogacenter.com/” target=”_blank”><strong><span style=”text-decoration: underline;”>Veda Yoga‘s</span></strong></a> student of the month, I answered some questions for our monthly newsletter. I like to share my story here as a personal review to <strong>my own yoga practice</strong> and I am really thankful to inspire our community. I was asked to give my statement to the following questions:

<h2>What inspired you to take your first yoga class?</h2> <div>There are <strong>two different types</strong> of my first yoga experiences because in the beginning I was used to do yoga classes <strong>online</strong> on Youtube or just by <strong>myself</strong> at home. In Berlin the practise of yoga is just coming up. When I came to Los Angeles, I felt wonderful surrounded by many yoga studios and a great vibration. That was exactly the right time and place for me to take my first class within a yoga studio. So I found this amazing studio in my neighborhood -Veda Yoga. And I stepped into a secret place with open space. The basic inspiration for me to do yoga was the <strong>triangle</strong> between <strong>body</strong>, <strong>mind</strong> and <strong>spirit</strong>. Due to my personal growing I was into <strong>meditation</strong> and the world of <strong>chakras</strong>. Besides that I found a way to activate my self-healing forces so I can work on my transformation process with deep awareness. Other then that it is perfect to free yourself. For now the last I have to say: I am so glad that I am addicted to it nowadays.</div> <div></div> <h2></h2>

<h2>How long have you been practicing Yoga?</h2> <div></div> <h2></h2>

I have been practicing yoga for more than <strong>one year</strong>. But I got really into it since December when I started to practice <strong>one or two times a day</strong>. It is part of my daily lovely life and I love to get stick with it.

<h2></h2> <div></div> <h2></h2> <h2>How has it changed your life?</h2> <div></div> <div>So as you can see, yoga is predestinated to <strong>change your life</strong>. On my personal path of yoga it belongs to my everyday inspiration. I have the opportunity to reconnect with myself, heart and passion. Most of the times I feel like this <strong>little ever smiling girl</strong> playing fearless in the sun. Other than that and probably the most important point for the present time, I found my <strong>calling and focus</strong> in life. I want to <strong>inspire people</strong> and arouse their passions, like yoga brought me back to my <strong>unique passion</strong>. I am looking forward to <strong>become a teacher</strong>.</div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <h2></h2> <h2></h2>

<h2></h2> <div></div> <h2></h2> <h2></h2> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <div></div> <h2></h2> <h2>What are you enjoy doing outside of yoga?</h2> <div></div> <div>Besides yoga I love to <strong>combine movement and creative unfolding</strong>. I love any kind of <strong>sport</strong> like longboarding, running and biking. <strong>Creativity</strong> is part of expression in every situation. I like expressing myself within creating vegan and gluten free <strong>food</strong>, <strong>photography</strong>, <strong>reading</strong> and <strong>writing</strong>. Other than that I enjoy spending time with <strong>family</strong> and <strong>friends</strong>. And I hope I can share my inspiration with the world.Thank you, Kumi for turning up the volume of my heart melody and creating the wonderful space of Veda Yoga Center</div> <div></div> <div></div>
