to support people; to allow for them to have an excellent sense of their bodies and sense of physical well-being associated with a free, calm mind; to promote a healthy life style and more mindfulness for themselves; to have an affect on them, both outwardly and inwardly; and to teach them the joy and depth of yoga. The training provides you with all the necessary learning materials in order to put all the above into practice and in addition it fosters your own personal development.

gives you a new chance to improve yourself. It also enables you to discover the details and facet of what is important in your life and how to change your behavior for good. It is not something you can do in few days or weeks. It takes time and discipline. Frieda is the perfect guide when going through this life changing journey. With her wide knowledge she is able to help you and the group; she prepared a structured course that has the right amount of information, for you to absorb. She is always open for questions, discussions and she will clarify all the uncertainties you have during the course. This course was the right choice for me to do and I can’t wait the day I’ll be able to integrate her teaching in my daily life!“ ~ Barbara
about the whole yoga concept, I can highly recommend the Yoga Teacher Training at the Yoga Academy for Life and Learning. During the training you will learn every aspect of the asanas. Detail is paid towards the function of each bone, joint and muscle during the asana, helping you to avoid injury. You will gain knowledge within the themes of Health and Anatomy. In the History and Philosophical part you will learn about the roots and the meaning of Yoga. With the teachers long academic background and she really knows what she’s talking about, plus, she knows how to teach inorder for us to understand. Over the last couple of months our group has grown together so much. I love the Yoga house which is in the middle of nature creating a relaxing and wonderful atmosphere.“ ~ Birgit
„... I did for myself since a long time. The program and the teacher covers not just yoga asanas but so much more like history, anatomy and you even learn how to become a teacher yourself. I don’t think there is another Yoga course that covers everything with such love for details. For me it would be very difficult if we would just talk about teaching. But because every week I need to teach one or two asanas during practice, I learn to get more confident and secure. Same with other themes e.g. anatomy, where we sometimes have to prepare material - this really makes it stick even more in our brain. Frieda teaches us so much more then Yoga … we learn about the right techniques, self confidence and different learning styles. I also like that our group extends the learning experience to other Topics such as nutrition and ayurveda. The environment is also beautiful, and everytime, it’s time for the course (each Thursday) I’m so happy.“ ~ Bettina
