Christian was born in the town of Brandenburg in Eastern Germany in February 1977, in the year of the firedragon. His yoga journey began 15 years ago whilst traveling Australia. A friend showed him the first sun salutations and ever since he has been hooked.
Christian has practiced Ashtanga Yoga as part of self practice for many years. He has completed the Primary and Intermediate Series and practices the Advanced A Series exploring into Advanced B. But nevertheless he is very much attracted to modern Vinyasa styles like the Prana Flow of Shiva Rea. He teaches twisty and bendy Vinyasa Flow and traditional Ashtanga regularly in different Studios in Munic, gives workshops and instructs becoming teachers in the Ashtanga system.
In 2011 he completed his RYT 200 with Tribe in Thailand and has taught over 1500 hrs since.
Also a landscape gardener by trade and a studied landscape architect he feels very connected to the planet and has created many landart sculptures only made from natural materials. He founded the so called artless-project (www.artless-project.de) and specialized in fire sculptures that he has built and burned at festivals in germany. For more than 10 years he has been part of a professional firedance company (www.firedancer.de) performing in more than 500 shows all across Europe and abroad. A highlight being the opening ceremony of the Cricket World Championship in Capetown, SA, in 2009, with more than 500 million people on the screens.
Through all the somersaults of live, Yoga has always accompanied Christian and has influenced him positively. Ever since he decided to become a teacher, yoga takes presedence his professional live. One of the things he likes to emphasise and remind students who want to become teachers is the importance of developing a self practice
“The practice itself is not difficult, what is much harder is to become a practitioner.”
