Daniela GfellerIn 2001 - working in the high-tech industry as an online communication specialist - I reluctantly joined a fellow colleague for a yoga class at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam. I didn’t think it would be my cup of tea but I was quickly proved wrong. I liked the active form of doing asanas, the precision that comes with it and the physical/mental benefits. As a web and graphic designer I spend a lot of time behind a computer and it is my experience that yoga counteracts the shortening of the front of the body, lengthens the muscles and energizes the spine.

I joined the Teacher Training Program in 2006 with the intention to intensify my yoga practice. Soon after, I started teaching my own classes and also began teaching Iyengar yoga to children. The latter opened up a more playful aspect of yoga, teaching children to improve their muscular system and posture while enhancing their self-confidence.

Teaching opened a new dimension for me and I enjoy helping other students by sharing the knowledge I’ve gained so far. In my classes I believe in first creating a firm foundation then gradually building up to go deeper into the practice.
