Dr. Friederike Fahr.
I love life and learning. These two are in my eyes extensively interwoven. If we live consciously and keep changing we learn constantly. While we learn and develop ourselves, we experience life to be colourful and intense. I wish to help people, to discover their inner core, their talents and their strengths and to walk their own individual path. I would like to support organisations in establishing an innovative learning culture. I will accompany you for a while on your path to support you in your goal of shaping your personal life and professional processes with newly found confidence, in mindfulness and health.
In the form of the Yoga Academy for life and learning, I realize my vision of a house full of learning and teaching. Amongst the Indian culture, I have studied yoga for over two years directly at its origin. Today, yoga forms the connecting link among all topics that have always affected and inspired me as well as the core of the Academy. All my experiences and knowledge gained over the past 20 years, full of life, learning and working, are now coming together in this Yoga Academy. At one of the most beautiful places in the world, after many years of learning in my family, my profession and in India and one crucial life event, now is the right moment. I invite you open-heartedly, to learn and work with me, to practise yoga and to manifest your visions.
