LENA PFITZNER

Teacher & Student

Lena has always been a passionate dancer and through dance she found her interest in yoga – connecting both body & mind on a deeper level.

Her classes range from slow restorative to dynamic vinyasa flow. Lena encourages her students to practice with a sense of freedom and provides opportunities to be creative and explore what suits you best. In class she strongly believes it is crucial to move in a way that is safe and comfortable for your own body and by doing that, the benefits of yoga go beyond just the physical (asana) practice.

Maria’s strengths are teaching a moving practice with a mixture of sequences that balance and strengthen the whole body. She believes it’s not what the pose looks like, but how it feels and will encourage a deeper connection to the physical body through breath and becoming present.
