What is ViryaLila Yoga?
“Virya” means power, courage, and strength. “Lila” is the “game of the divine”. ViryaLila Yoga is powerful, precise and yet playful yoga, which allows you can discover the variety in movement, gain strength and awaken your hidden potential. It invites you to explore your body and the world around you, creates a sense of achievement and inspires our lives. It teaches us to embrace the challenges fo life with courage, strength, and creativity.
In my lessons you will learn important alignment principles, practice balance and coordination, and train both strength and flexibility alike. We combine classic asana practice with aspects of other schools of movement such as Feldenkrais, functional training, myofascial release, and progressive muscle relaxation. Mantras, mudras and pranayama enrich our practice on another dimension. Much of what we practice on the mat can be transferred to everyday life — not just physically. Come and get inspired!
My name is Lena. I am a certified yoga teacher (540h yoga alliance, ZPP accredited). For me, yoga means freeing ourselves from rigid patterns and discovering our hidden potential. No matter whether I practice Hatha, Power Vinyasa Flow, Asthanga, Acro or Yin Yoga: the combination of movement, breathing and philosophy has something magical for me. I am particularly fascinated by the biomechanics of our body and the life-affirming approach of Tantric philosophy.
The most influential teachers on my yoga path include Jordan Bloom, Thomas Bessel, Noah Mazé, Rocky Heron and Michael J. Stewart.

I offer programs tailored to your needs and the space availble: 30 minutes of gentle yoga in the office (no change of clothes needed) are just as possible as 60 minutes of intensive practice on the mat. Students of all ages and experience levels are welcome. Bilingual classes (German and English) are possible.
One on One
An hour entirely for yourself with a teacher’s undivided attention gives you an fantastic opportunity to enrich your yoga practice. You can choose, e.g., to practice alignment in your asana, get moving in a sweatty flow, or even work therapeutically. We can practice in the studio, outdoors or at your home.
I offer yoga classes in German and English as well as bilingual classes (German and English).
The same applies to workshops, events, business yoga, and individual sessions, of course.
