Katharina Blansjaar

A serious injury originally brought me to yoga. I know what it feels like to lose balance, when the connection between mind and body, thought, emotion and action is gone. I know what pain is. Yoga has helped me cope. It has given me strength, confidence and compassion. Yoga is much more than just an exercise routine. It has touched me deeply and is my daily companion, it teaches me acceptance and mindfulness, it gives me stability and ease.

My practice is both strong and soothing, and always sustainable. I care about alignment and safety, and I care about the human beings I work with. I love to breathe deeply, and I love to sit down and be quiet – pranayama (yogic breathwork) and meditation are an important part of my practice. I like to ask questions. My understanding of yoga is based on research, verifiable knowledge and inquisitiveness rather than outdated traditions, superstition and gullibility. That said, yoga still works its magic on me every day.

I completed my basic training (Yoga Alliance RYT 200) with United Yoga and have since followed various courses of continuing education. My +300 hrs training with Mark Stephens in California truly transformed my practice. You can read more about my yogic path and my teaching on the website of Davos Yoga, my cosy yoga studio in the centre of Davos Platz (only in German).

Apart from teaching, learning and living yoga, I am a freelance author, translator and illustrator (click here to find out more).
