YM: How did it happen that you became a yoga teacher? 

Anita: It happened 3 years ago. A friend of mine was undertaking a teacher training course at the time and I came over to her class. I loved it right away and ended up practicing every single day! Then I thought… Why not share my knowledge with others? I studied pedagogy at the university and teaching has always been an important part of my life. “Giving” is the keyword for that. “Giving” something good to the others.

YM: We start a phrase, you finish it up, deals? :) 
Anita: Okay!

I have always been fascinated by healthy lifestyle. 
I practice yoga, because easily it makes me happy and it teaches me many unexpected things. 
I will always remember the day, when I listened to my first Aphex Twin track - Analogue Bubblebath. 
My parents were scared, when I became vegan 8 years ago. With the time they realised, that I’m fine and nothing bad is happening to me. :) 
As far back as I remember myself, I was very often stressed. I could hardly deal with exams, conflicts at work etc. It has become way easier to deal with all those situations, after I have started to practice yoga.
The best praise for me, is when my yoga students smile after my class. 
The authority of a yoga teacher is the power of giving something nice to people. 
I don´t understand why yoga is not compulsory at school. 
I love listening to electronic music, therefore, I use my most favourite ambient, chill and experimental tracks during my classes.
