Impressions from the last Neuland Yoga retreat “Shine your light”, November 2017:
Katja makes each student feel like their practice is important, giving spot on personal instruction. I always leave her class with renewed passion for my practice, either because I’ve learned something new that I can work on, or she’s noticed I’ve achieved a personal goal.Korey
