I am Svenja and I share my joy and inspiration for illustrated yoga sequences on this blog.

I was born in the Hanseatic city Hamburg and have lived in Germany ever since.
From 1997 to 2000 I studied illustration design in Hamburg, then later fine arts in Dresden, Hamburg and Berlin. I got my diploma in 2009.
I became a mother during my studies, and Elena was born in 2006. Miguel was born four years later.

Already 2000, when I was living in a small forest hut outside of Hamburg, I drove to the city for yoga once a week.
Then I studied art in Dresden and yoga disappeared from my life for a few years.

With the move to Berlin in 2008 and after the birth of Miguel and my husband's advice, I started to practice yoga again.
Yoga became my instrument, like a musician finds his instrument, yoga became my instrument to give expression to the inner being.
Therefore, I started training as an Iyengar Yoga teacher in 2013, which I completed in 2016.
In October 2019 I received the certification as Junior Intermediate I after further training, including yoga during pregnancy.
I have been teaching in my own rooms since 2018.

Even before I started the teacher training as a yoga teacher, I wrote down the sequences I had practiced and later illustrated them. I found it nice to see a sequence visually.
It has inspired my practice and teaching too.
I wish that you feel the same way and that it gives you joy and inspiration.

Namaste Svenja
