Anja Bauer

Instructor

My name is Anja Bauer, I am from Germany. I started my Yoga Practice when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I worked as ICU and Anesthesia Nurse, Teacher for Nurses and Healthcare Consultant at this point of time for already ten years. I stopped working in this area and studied Ayurveda Therapie. I am a registered Ayurveda Therapist in Germany. In 2010 I moved, together with my husband and my three daughters, from Munich to Abu Dhabi.

During all this time I continued and deepened my Yoga Practice. In November 2014 I finished my Flow Yoga 250 hours Teacher Training with “Evolation” Yoga in Abu Dhabi. In November 2016 I finished my 85 hours Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training with “Return to the Self” in Abu Dhabi.

I teach Flow Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Kids Yoga and Pre-, Postnatal Yoga.

In my classes I guide the students to maintain awareness and focus on the breath while moving through a series of postures combined with music.

The sequence of the postures are different from class to class but always follow a progression through breathing exercise, warm up, Sun Salutations, a dynamic standing series, core work, various hip openers, twists, backbends and inversions. Postures may be held for longer periods of time and will be linked together to unite the body to the breath and mind.
