Yoga

A science, an art form, a way of Life

The word Yoga can be translated as the union of mind, body and spirit.


When we get together, and breathe together, connections happen


-- Seane Corne

For many people who start yoga the first attraction is for health of the physical body, which is a wonderful reason but asana (posture) can just be a stepping-stone for a deeper practice that becomes a way of life. Through a regular practice we can attain a more focused mind, reach higher levels of consciousness and gain many qualities that help us to live a happier and more fulfilled life. Yoga is a transformational practice that can allow our natural state of being that is more stable, peaceful and content to be lived.


On the mat is a a space for us to become internally connected, to allow us to really be intune with our experiences, emotions and feelings. In daily life we can experience situations almost as though we are being pulled out of ourselves; very little in life invites us to really see how we are, where we are at, and how we are truly feeling. The practice can help us understand ourselves better, giving us power and a stronger sense of self. As we become attuned to our bodies, we build trust and understanding of what we need to become more balanced and feel more comfortable and at home in our body. Our hearts become more open.


There is something about the practice of yoga that gives you the courage to be out there in the world as you are

The intention when holding space for students is that the environment feels warm and safe, helping to encourage you in a journey inwards to raise a deeper awareness in the different layers of your body; the physical, mental, emotional and energetic.

My introspective nature is often reflected when giving Yin Yoga classes; teaching the art of being quiet and listening, often entwining poetry and insightful writings that have inspired me.

When teaching more dynamic classes I draw on all aspects of the vast yogic tradition creating a balanced sequence, finding that sweet spot in between working hard and being at ease (Sthira Sukham Asanam - Pantanjalis Yoga Sutra 1.2) I like to pay attention to the energetic principles of grounding, uplifting, centering, expansion and nurturing a sense of connection with the whole using a life affirming teaching style; which is somewhat playful at times.

I stay open to all levels of practitioners offering variations and modifications, verbal and hands on assistance.

Together we learn to hold space for ourselves to really listen and process our external experiences and our internal processes. It’s time to come back to our true nature that is “peaceful, blissful and fearless”, Vishva-Ji.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a very slow style of yoga. Holding asana for a longer period of time in an open and relaxed way to target the deeper layers of the body. We are helping to improve the health of the connective tissues; ligaments, tendons and fascia and improving the flow of chi (energy) in the body. This class takes practitioners on a slow journey towards relaxation and away from the extreme Yang modern culture we live in today to a more softer quiet Yin side of life. The Yin approach prepares the practitioner for meditation as one the of the central intention of the yin practice is the cultivation of inner stillness. This practice teaches us about our boundaries, the deep art of listening and helps us to cultivate acceptance and surrender. This class is great for improving flexibility and cultivating greater awareness of our body and mind.

Playful Hatha Yoga

Play is pleasurable - in order to experience play you have to enjoy what ever the activity is. Have you noticed in our society that we have been taught that the harder you work the better the outcome? We are taught to push our limits and for some reason many of us aren’t convinced that feeling good could actually be good for us! Has your practice felt linear or dry recently? How can we turn up the volume of play and pleasure in our practice? This class explores just that - it is a balanced mix of movement, connection and exploration. This class is a process where the whole journey is more important than getting to the end.

The asana sessions complete with basic pranayama and meditation. A well rounded practice.

Hatha Yoga Level B

Hatha Level B classes are to inspire intermediate students through more dynamic asana, pranayama and longer meditations. These techniques work synergistically to deepen your exploration of the body/mind connection, release blockages and cleanse outmoded thought patterns. This practice aims to heighten your energetic awareness, and to balance and expand the flow of prana. The sequence covers all the directional movements of the spine and all of the posture stations (seated, standing, inversion, balance, on back, on belly) each class finds a balance between yin and yang, between structural cues and inner enquiry, usually the intensity of strong uplifting asana toward the beginning of a class are mirrored by surrendering, grounding postures at the resolution. `This level evokes the energetic, mental and emotional level of awareness.

Hatha-Raja

This class I offer a sequence of moderate postures practiced in a slow and mindful way in conjunction with Brahmaree Pranayama (honey-bee breath) and conclude with a longer meditation. Performing Brahmaree during postures helps to lengthen the breath and releases stress at a cellular level. The postures chosen influence the pineal and pituitary glands of the brain, which balances the hormonal system and calms and uplifts the mind, bringing you more easily into meditation.

What others say about their experience...

I took  part in the 10 day morning challenge workshop. Victoria is a great teacher especially because she is so authentic, I always felt welcome and that I could come the way I am. She has so much experience and can enrich her classes with knowledge from different fields such as Taoism or Neuroscience, that was very interesting. The practice is deep and mindful and it helped me so much to feel better when I was having difficult times. Victoria is a very special teacher. I am very grateful for this experience.

Thank you, Victoria. You teach with profound knowledge and empathic care. Your own way to lead us through theory and practice bridges body, mind and soul and allows for intimacy, growth and common understanding.

I just finished a 3 weeks challange with Victoria. Shwas  was my first- and forever-yoga-teacher-crush cause she made me fall in love not only with her but also with yoga! We met just at the right time at the right place. She encourages me deeply on my path of healing without even trying, just by being her very wonderful self. To me her classes are pure magic and I wish everybody could come to enjoy them, either yogi or not (yet).

During my time of learning yoga more consistently through taking a one of Victoria's 3 week challenges, her support and teachings propelled me into a profound journey about discovering so much about myself by developing a special bond between my yoga mat and daily practice. I learnt to reconnect to beauty of life, experience the true nature of myself and a feeling almost as though I'd finally come back home to my true essence in a healthy and balanced way. She was attentive and nuturing throughout my progress and provided dynamic and powerful teachings with an open heart enabling healing and growth in abundance. I felt I truly flourished with Victoria as my yoga mentor. Thank you 

Meeting Victoria was a life changing experience for me. I guess I was at some sort of 'turning point'. She left me deeply inspired and encouraged. Her input, whether it was breathing techniques, poetry or writings, shared experiencesshe had herself or that have inpired her and anatomical knowledge touched me. In both her teaching styles whether it be the slower or the more active practice, she has this beautiful intutition for this little gap between being challenged too much and not being challenged enough. With her I never experienced either of the both extremes. I felt like she kept us safe and steady in this powerful in-between. You will learn to differentiate and you will find ease, joy, trust and strength in this gap, to which Victoria is guiding you through in her classes.

I met Victoria at the Anand Prakash Ashram, India. I was immediately drawn to her bright light that filled the space she was in. Her classes at the ashram were powerful and uplifting. I felt that her love and wisdom were infused into her teachings and it helped me to move into a deeper space within my physical and spiritual body. She holds such a compassionate presence and it shows in the way she helps you through your practice, adjusting you mindfully, respecting your body and what it allows you to do. I would definately recommend experiencing one of her classes. You will truely benefit and maybe not in a way you expected.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Victoria for many years but our connection has greatly deepened since she shared her love for yoga with me. I joined Victoria in India for a three month long exploration into the self discovery and healing through yoga and meditation. It was a life changing experience and completely transformational in every sense and it would not be possible without her experience and guidance.

Victoria's great experience and mastery are evident in the wisdom and ease which she shares insight into being in the present moment whilst embodying yin and yang. Her teaching is grounded in clear instruction, maeningful adjustments and positive energy. No matter what you bring with you onto the mat, you will leave the class feeling balanced, refreshed and loved. Thank you so much!

Yellow Yoga: Studio Sonne/Gelber Raum - Berlin

(July/August Only)

Yellow Yoga is a non-profit (community supported) organisation. It is an international, vibrant and authentic community of teachers and practitioners, who operate more like a community rather than a business organisation. Studio Sonne itself is spacious with a maximum of 32 students per class, it is light and cosy with a fireplace to warm us on colder days and nights. Gelber Raum is slighter smaller with a maximum of 19 students.


Yellow Yoga wants to make yoga available for all - therefore you'll find lots of different teachers teaching types of yoga in their schedule at all times throughout the day, and more importantly - a sliding scale pricing system where yogis with higher monthly income (more than 1000€) offer to pay more (12€), so that yogis with lower income (less than 800€) can practice for a more affordable price (8€). The happy medium (10€) is where Yellow Yoga is able to cover their costs. The same system applies to monthly passes (80/70/60€) and 11-time cards (120/100/80€).


Yellow Yoga accepts Urban Sports Members to all classes.
