Birgit is a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher and also holds a certificate in Yoga for Scoliosis. She has been teaching in the Iyengar tradition since 2004 and traveled several times to the Ramamani Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India. She is deeply grateful that she could study with the late B.K.S.Iyengar and his late daughter Geetaji and continues to be a student of Prashantji Iyengar. In the US, she studies with her mentors Ben Thomas, Elise Miller, Jito Yumibe and Manouso Manos.
The encouragement to her students is to practice and live the precepts of Yoga as defined in the Yoga Sutras by Patanjali on and off the mat.
