Patricia Thielemann
Spirit Yoga

“Only if yoga is close to real life is it possible to walk the path to the essential and then return to the world strengthened, re-grounded, and transformed.”

For over a decade now, this Berlin native has been decisively shaping the identity of modern yoga in the German-speaking world. Patricia's sense for the extraordinary, her discipline, and her sensitivity flow into the style that she has developed over the years. She demonstrates impressively that a rich yoga tradition, combined with a contemporary approach, helps people to master the challenges of everyday life in our modern age. The participants of her classes master their yoga practice, as well as life beyond the mat, with renewed strength, visor, and clarity.



Dr. Patrick Broome
Yoga for all

Go within with a combination of Vinyasa yoga, breathing exercises, philosophical input and deep meditation, guided by Dr. Patrick Broome, coach of the German national soccer team and trained psychologist. The day begins with meditation, followed by 90 minutes of Hatha and Vinyasa yoga.

Pradeep Teotia
Pradeep Yoga

“Pradeeep brings great energy and enthusiasm to the Practice and the Group – yet enables anyone of reasonable energy to participate fully – yet be challenged – enabling them to experience Yoga! Throughout He maintains the spiritual traditions of Yoga peppering them with amusing insightful philosophical anecdotes and lively soundtracks! It is rare that those of us who have had the pleasure of practicing with him don’t return for more!! We always leave strengthened physically and mentally and leave on a Higher plane! The Retreats are always in wonderful locations to add to the whole package! Best book soon – you’re in for a treat !” — Nick Sutherland, England

Karl Straub
Karl Straub Yoga

Karl Straub was born in North Carolina in 1965, and was introduced to meditation around the age of 10. He is a former competitive swimmer, dolphin communication researcher, and graduate of Duke University. He worked as a school teacher, artist, and IT consultant, until he made a big decision to leave his IT job and career path in New York City to explore deeper into meditation and yoga. He sold and donated his belongings, set off on an odyssey of 8 years during which he kept no apartment anywhere and traveled just with what he could carry. He studied with many teachers including Zen master Keido Fukushima, the Indian yogi Swami Bua, David Life and Sharon Gannon (co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga), and others, from whom he gathered inspiration to express precision, depth, and humor in his own teaching. Karl has taught at festivals, conferences, and studios in over 40 cities and 12 countries. He currently lives in Switzerland and offers retreats and workshops worldwide.


Anna Trökes
Prana Yoga

Anna Trökes has been teaching yoga since 1974, and is the author of more than 30 yoga publications. A big priority in Anna Trökes' classes is a mindful handling of the body. A relaxed yoga practice with many gentle stretches and rhythmic movements helps the fasciae to become softer and more permeable again, allowing the muscles they encase to relax again. The breathing exercises reliably release tensions and resistance in the mind and spirit, so that we can counteract tensions more effectively and lastingly.

Timo Wahl

Dynamic Yoga, but anatomically precise and controlled. Classes are structured systematically to take you deep into the asanas you otherwise find particularly difficult. Exhausting but exhilarating and inspiring. The teacher’s experience and knowledge become tangible in your practice.

Johannes Mikenda

Johannes is an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, a member of the Jivamukti Advanced Board, and Director of the Jivamukti Yoga School at Elmau. His lessons are designed to convey the essence of yoga in a way that can be used in everyday life.
