Nadja Grimm is a dressmaker by trade and for many years, she owned her own fashion label. Today she works as a certified Esalen- and Ayurveda Yoga-masseuse. She ended up following this path due to her passion for yoga, which she discovered in 2003. Ever since then Nadja has encountered many inspiring teachers and she has evolved her own practice during many trainings and retreats. To deepen her Ashtanga practice, she traveled to the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India, in 2009, where she was taught by R. Sharath, grandchild of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. She is Michael Hamilton’s assistant for the Ashtanga Mysore program at AIRYOGA and she also teaches her own classes. She is very grateful and feels deep respect for the preserved and passed-on knowledge, which she shares with great pleasure. To Nadja, yoga means being mindful and present within your own life, accepting changes and learning to trust; it means developing your own personality and being kind to yourself and other beings as you follow that path. She teaches in German and also in English, upon request.
