Svenja Karstens

I was born in Hamburg.
I studied illustration design and art and graduated in 2009 at the HfbK Dresden.
I work on drawings and papercuts in which lines, shadows, overlaps and transparency are my main focus.
Since 2011 I have practiced regularly Iyengaryoga with my teacher, who has lived in India for a long time and studied directly ten years with Guruji BKS Iyengar.
I started my training as a yoga teacher at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Berlin in 2013 and finished in 2016.


In yoga, I found something familiar for me, which I was looking for without knowing it. Dreams I had as a child. To practice yoga is like inner flying, the space in the body becomes wide and of a lightness and purity.
