Verena Stenke

As an artist I work in performances with the human body, also through somatic practices. The path to Hatha Yoga lead me early on as a teenager through martial arts and Tai Chi. Through in-depth study of the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali I discovered the eightfold path of Yoga, as well as the styles in the tradition of Sri T. Krishnamacharya. My practice today encompasses Ashtanga Vinyasa complemented by advanced Iyengar and a gentle Hatha. Yoga is for me first and foremost India's generous gift to humanity. Just like art, yoga is outer form and inner freedom, and like art, yoga challenges oneself gently but constantly to move faithfully into ever new spaces, even in moments of silence, as a necessary step of evolution to ever more complexity. Yoga is integrity that I wish for all life.
