Born and raised in Germany, Christian came to Amsterdam in 2002. His yoga journey started in 2008, when he tried out a yoga lesson in his gym. He was immediately hooked. The teacher, Andreas Trussat, became his yoga mentor for the next couple of years, including some beautiful retreats in Vlieland, Ibiza, India and Bali and lots of laughter.
In time, Christian discovered that ashtanga yoga was the practice that suited and inspired him most, and ultimately “moved houses” and became a member at Delight Yoga, practicing Mysore style with Ingrid Notten, Eva Ugolini and Claudia Pradella. It was with Claudia and Eva that he followed the 200 hrs. basic teacher training in 2017, and in 2019 The Path of Ashtanga, a 100 hrs. training to deepen his knowledge and practice, and study students’ adjustments.
Since september 2019, Christian is teaching ashtanga yoga regularly. He enjoys sharing what he has learned, and at the same time learning himself from the teaching experience and the interaction with the students. As the founder of ashtanga yoga, Pattabhi Jois, said: Practice, and all is coming!
