Birgit is a wholehearted and profound Iyengar Yoga teacher; certified in Iyengar Yoga and Yoga for Scoliosis.

For more than 20 years she practices Iyengar Yoga and teaches since 2004 in this tradition. Every other year she travels to Pune, India, where the Ramamani Iyengar Institute is located, to study with the Iyengar family.

She offers public yoga classes in the Bay Area as well as private yoga sessions, teaches the staff at the VA in Menlo Park and inspires many students with her creative pranayama sessions and energy work in various teacher training programs. She teaches local and national workshops and monthly pranayama classes in several Bay Area yoga studios.

Deep roots and decades of studies in Shotokan Karate, Zen Meditation, Qi Gong and Reiki give her classes a solid foundation.

Her classes are a harmonious composition of solidity, lightness, pensivity, meditativety, integration, integrity, spirituality, compassion, discipline, community building, responsibility and creativity.

She encourages the students to practice the precepts of Yoga defined by the sage Patanjali in the yoga sutras, on and off the yoga mat. She is always thankful and feels deep gratitude to all her teachers along the path, the journey of life. Always grateful to Sensei Haramoto, the late Zen Monk Hannya Koun, Professor A. Tayam, the late B.K.S. Iyengar, Geetaji and Prashantji Iyengar and her mentors Ben Thomas and Elise Miller.
