NOSADE teaches holistic yoga with an emphasis on health benefits. Focusing on bio-mechanically and anatomically correct movement, we view yoga as a means to promote and maintain quality of life, health, and autonomy on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level. Our teaching styles range from Anusara, Hatha, and (Power-) Vinyasa Flow to restorative yoga and Yin yoga.
In our fundamental conviction that the mere practice of poses is not enough to cultivate a healthy, and – most importantly – conscious sensitivity for our body both on the inside and the outside, we deepen the understanding of our very personal (motion-) patterns throughout our yoga retreats and during our travels and again and again create connections to everyday life. Focusing on bio-mechanically correct movement patterns and holistic well-being, motion and strength, breathing technique, classical yoga philosophy, spirituality and meditation, our scope expands to the therapeutic aspects of yoga. The ancient philosophy of yoga in its full extent, in connection with advances in and adaptation of the Asana to the needs of the 21st century human body, make yoga the marvelous, helpful, clear, and rewarding path that it is.
Our Yoga classes are mostly taught in English and / or German.
This is to introduce the NOSADE yoga teachers for 2017:

Henriette Lorenz (Yoga Teacher, Berlin)
Movement, change, dynamics.
Introspective, calm, balance.
Yoga unites aspects of life that seem to have nothing in common.
On the mat we feel these opposites.
"In my practice and my teaching, I emphasize on biomechanical orientation, which brings change through introspective that allows us to master our daily life dynamically but yet calmly.
Physical and mental well-being. This is yoga. On the mat and off the mat!
Trained in yoga therapy, I also teach students with limitations and find individual paths in the yoga practice and for everyday life."
Henriette teaches Anusara orientated yoga at all levels, with the goal of building a bridge between mat and everyday life together with her students. As an experiential educator, she always follows the motto "A gram of experience is worth more than a ton of theory."

Füsun + Knuth Folger (enso yoga, Berlin)
Füsun Folger: Born in Istanbul, grown up in Berlin Füsun looks back on several years of own yoga practice. She taught on different yoga studios before she established enso yoga in Berlin Mitte, www.ensoyoga.de. Füsun completed her yoga teacher training at Spirit Yoga Berlin and at Cihangir Yoga in Istanbul and is teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga. She has learned and internalized her clearly structured, powerful yet gentle style of teaching in numerous workshops with German and international teachers such as Patricia Thielemann, Dr. Patrick Broome, Zeynep Aksoy, Gurmukh, Bryan Kest and Rusty Wells.
For Füsun yoga has become an indispensable part of her life. Yoga is not only balancing in everyday life, but influences the way we think and act in life, positively and sustainably. The funding of the ensoyoga studio was therefore also the logical continuation of her previous work as Human Resources Manager and Business Coach on a deeper more holistic level.
Füsun is looking forward to share her experiences with others on her yoga retreats.
Knuth Folger: Yoga is a constant companion of my life, which always creates the connection with my body, which grounds me and retrieves me from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
I began very early with competitive sports and therefore I was already intensively engaged in self-protection with sports methodology and the physiological connections in the body. On the basis of various sports injuries, I realized that intense sport always leads to an imbalance in the body system, and that it needs something that brings back balance again.
About 10 years ago I discovered yoga. At first I practiced it after sport as a kind of gymnastics. A few months and a few yoga retreats later, I realized how deep yoga changed the body and the soul. I always experience an incredible feeling after an intense yogapraxis every time, I experience how blockages can dissolve and the energy can flow unhindered again. A nice side effect is the healing of some physical complaints.
My teaching style is powerful, challenging and focused.
I was born and raised in Berlin, work as a lawyer in my main profession and live with Füsun and our children in Berlin-Friedrichshagen.
Katrin Antonow (Yoga Teacher, Berlin)
Katrin discovered yoga 10 years ago when she practiced her first sun salutation. What initially was meant only as a compensation for other sports, quickly developed into a passion that continues to this day. In addition to her work as a lawyer, Katrin completed her apprenticeship as a yoga teacher at Spirityoga in Berlin in 2014. Since then, she has continued to pursue her studies.
Katrin is particularly fascinated by the healing power of yoga, which is created by the combination of breath, mind and movement and, besides physical relaxation, leads to inner peace and serenity. In her clearly structured and partly demanding classes, Katrin attaches great importance to giving each student sufficient space for his or her individual needs and to discover the many facets of yoga for themselves.
Katrin teaches a powerful Vinyasa Yoga at various studios in Berlin.
Anica founded NOSADE to share authentic travel experiences in beautiful, diverse, and ever fascinating Morocco with like-minded nomad-hearted people.
One of her concerns as an entrepreneur is combining a conscious approach to nature and culture on the one hand with a company that creates jobs for locals and operates in a sustainable and fair fashion on the other. She strives to provide both clients and employees with educational and formative experiences.
As a yoga teacher she blends knowledge of the bio-mechanical aspects of healthy motion in yoga with a balanced and conscious approach to life that is rooted in thousands of years of yoga tradition and teachings.
“Make conscious choices about how to move – joyfully, and yet skillfully and aware – how you want to think and feel and take these learnings from the mat to your daily life.”
Anica is a trained yoga therapist. She also teaches Anusara yoga to students of all proficiency levels, focusing on the development of an autonomous awareness for a pain-free and self-determined life in motion.
