    ** Gentle training with strong effect **

    Enjoy this calm and meditative-minded form of Hatha Yoga: All asanas are performed sitting or lying down. Yoga aids (bolsters, blocks, pillows) will support the body weight while relaxing in theses poses for a couple of minutes. Thus, connective tissue structures and the energy streams of the body are gently stimulated, maximising the soothing and relaxing effects.

Renate Gritschke

*RG 2014Hello and welcome on my website of YogaYatra!
I am Renate Gritschke, owner of YogaYatra and your Yoga teacher;  I am trained in Iyengar Yoga® and I am a certified Laban dance&movement teacher.

Before shifting my professional focus to yoga, I worked for many years as a dance teacher (for modern, jazz &  tap dance), business manager and production manager in the musical entertainment business.  I realized early that my own regular yoga practice was the key to bringing balance into my life and to building the strength necessary to face the daily challenges of life.  All of these experiences influence today my teaching at YogaYatra.

I hold a 500 h-Intermediate Certificate in Iyengar Yoga® and received fundaments for my yoga knowledge from Clé Souren and his team at Iyengar Yoga Center Amsterdam. I regularly attend international workshops and masterclasses to deepen my experiences.
Amongst my most influential teachers I would like to thank for sharing their knowledge: Jason Crandell (Teacher Training Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga;  MasterClass Art of Sequencing, MasterClass Injury Management),  Jason Crandell & Dr. Paul B. Roache (Teacher Training Body Anatomy), Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman Yee (MasterClass Vinyasa Flow & Pranayama), Sarah Powers (MasterClass Yin Yoga), Paul Grilley (MasterClass Yin Yoga), Bo Forbes (MasterClass Restorative Yoga/Body-Mind-Alignment), Vilas Tuske (Pranayama),   Tias Little (MasterClass Chakra System,  Pranayama), Jilian Pransky (MasterClass Restorative Yoga), Carrie Owerko (MasterClass  Props in Iyengar Yoga Level II)  and Judith Lasater & Lizzie Lasater (Teacher Training Philosophy & Yoga Sutras).
