Heike has been teaching Ashtanga Yoga since 2001. She was the third woman in Germany to be authorized by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2007. Her teaching is influenced by her 4 ½ year teacher training in Germany, her time studying with Pattabhi Jois in Mysore and her training with senior teacher Lino Miele. In Chennai at the Krishnamacharya Mandiram she studied yoga, pranayama, meditation and discovered the power of Vedic Chanting.
She runs her own studio in Cologne, Germany, where her main focus is on the traditional morning Mysore classes and where she leads an Ashtanga Yoga teacher training. She holds workshops and retreats national and international and lectures about Sanskrit and Chanting in teacher trainings.
She believes that the vinyasa-method of the Ashtanga system makes it such a powerful transformative tool. The precise synchronization of movements and breath calms the mind and mirrows the rhythm of life.
