ABOUT // Loredana was born in Germany and picked up yoga in her 20s due to her health issues. She regularly returned to study with different teachers and nourished her curiosity.
Later she has had the great opportunity to start her yoga teacher certification in classical yoga with her teachers Jeenal Mehta and Daniel Fonseca. Both certified by The Yoga Institute, Mumbai which is the world's oldest Yoga organization.
She is deeply inspired by the long term guidance of her beloved teachers who combine the eastern and western approaches to the body-mind union. In her 30s she completed her second teacher certification and got introduced to Ayurveda and its common health practices.
She deepened her studies and opened a centre in Offenbach in 2015. The centre educates in a holistic approach for total health and creates besides a Yoga community also a place where people can interconnect through music, sharing and sustainability events and workshops.
Loredana aims through her teaching to help students to develop a more refined consciousness of their body and breath as tools for transformation. With a focus on rediscovering intrinsic equilibrium, the body’s natural state of balance, the class tends to move through a deep, intense and graceful progression of postures.
We explore the principles of alignment and initiation, in order to encourage a physical and energetic environment beneficial to the cultivation of a compassionate practice. Each class is adapted to the specific needs of the students present. Loredana relishes curiosity and a sense of humor. She believes in living an intentional life, stepping outside of what is comfortable and following her heart.
