About Angelika Renger
I still remember my very first introduction to yoga in East Germany while completing my Physiotherapy Training. The concept of physical postures combined with the breath flowing harmoniously one into another, opened up a whole new world of moving and being for me. The experience of wholeness and stillness after each class was so profound that since then the practice of Yoga has been a constant companion in my life, like my breath. Once on that journey, I also discovered Meditation and Mindfulness which led me on to many retreats, these included a 2 month silent retreat in Thailand. I beleive that there is no way of saying which yoga class or retreat may have shaped my understanding of myself and the world but it rather is the culmination of all those years of practice that has made the difference and is still helping me to change and evolve day by day.
Because I felt a very strong desire to pass on the practices, to inspire and help others on their journey of discovery, I became a Yoga Teacher in 2003. In my classes I strive to emphasize the importance of integrating the practices of yoga meditation mindfulness into our day to day lives so it doesn't just become something we do in class or on our mats at home with no relevance to the rest of what we do.
What I truly love about yoga meditation and mindfulness is that they are available for everyone. Nobody is too unfit or too unwell or too old to practice. If you want to start you can and I will help you on your way as best as I can. Everybody is welcome.
I go on regular retreats and attend courses to improve and expand my knowledge and experience continously. I have a daily practice of yoga and meditation and aim to engage with life with awarenes and mindfulness. I believe it is essential to practice myself what I teach in order to be authentic, to teach from my own experience and to teach from my heart with compassion and understanding.
As a Yoga Teacher my Mantra is “to inspire” and “to be a stepping stone on your path to happiness”.
