About Leni

From an early age on Leni has been fascinated with philosophical questions of life and questions of spirituality. 

During her medical studies she stumbled upon Ashtanga Yoga and after her first Mysore class she was hooked! For the first time she experienced her self at peace.

She then fully immersed herself in the practice and studies of yoga and has since become a 500h Yoga Alliance accredited teacher. She has gone well beyond the 500h of study…

Along the way she has had the opportunity to study with and draw inspiration from teachers such as Tim Feldmann, Kino Macgregor, Richard Freeman, Mary Taylor, David Swenson, Ajay Tokas and many more.

She is a long-term student of Dr. Ronald Steiner and is currently enrolled in his “Ashtanga Yoga Innovation” 500 h teacher training. 

In the past few years she has been teaching in different settings and has been a part of several teacher trainings.

Being an adamant and dedicated practitioner of first and second series, she combines her knowledge about the human body with practical experience. Leni enjoys sharing what she has learned so far with anyone who is sincerely interested in exploring their individual practice from a different perspective.
