10 Questions to Yoga Teachers Nicole Reese und Silja Sperling

 

 

Between 23rd and 30th of September the Nexo Surfcamp is hosting the ¨Soulful Vinyasa & Yin Yoga Retreat¨ of the Hamburg-based Yoga Elements Studio.

If you want to indulge in their classes beforehand and take a short vacation for everyday´s hassle, visit their studio at Hamburg Eppendorf, take a deep breath in….and out….and relax. You can find their schedule here: http://www.yogaelements.org/stundenplan.html

 

In order to get to know the to warm-hearted Yoginis that run Yoga Elements a bit better, our Yoga teacher Ju has asked them some questions…and here is what they said:

 

  1. On a scale of 1 to 10, how weird are you?
    Silja:  > 2-3 = downtown normal
    Nicole:  Aren‘t usually the others the weird ones? I like the quote: „I am not weird at all, I am a limited edition.“
  2. What is your favorite part about being a yoga teacher?
    Silja: Reconnecting, sharing, focus
    Nicole: Share the wisdom of Yoga, the community, get myself grounded and centered, the sparkle in the student‘s eyes after the class.
  3. And what´s that thing with the Chakras and why do you put a focus on them?
    Silja: Putting you focus on chakras and keeping them aligned will help you stay balanced and uplifts your energy.
    Nicole: Chakras are the energy centers of the subtle body and it‘s great to get an idea how to keep them (= yourself) in balance.
  4. What book do you think every Yogi should read?
    Silja: The Yoga Sutra.
    Nicole:  Bhagavad Gita – it‘s fun and inspiring.
  5. If you could choose to have a superpower, which one would it be?
    Silja: I would want to control my mind.
    Nicole: Be powerful like Wonder Woman: love conquers all!
  6.  How lucky do you consider yourself?
    Silja: Happy-go-lucky
    Nicole: I am a lucky one – mostly.
  7. If you could change anything in the world/universe, what would it be?
    Silja: Eliminate self-doubt and approve time management.
    Nicole: Trust myself more and be quicker making decisions.
  8. If you could change anything in the world/universe, what would it be?
    Silja: Imagine there would be no countries and no greed…
    Nicole: That mankind stops harm, killing themselves and our nature.
  9. What is your favorite asana?
    Silja: The bird of paradise and banana.
    Nicole: Eka Pada Rajakapotasana (Pigeon Pose) and Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel).
  10. If you could ask God or whomever you believe in one question, what would it be?
    Silja: I would ask what is real?
    Nicole: What‘s this all about?
