'Wellicious is very nice and modern and has a fine and noble yoga collection.'
I was born in Cape Town. Since I was a girl I had a burning desire in my heart for movement, dance and music. However, being a child of colour, I was devout of the possibility to attend a ballet school . At age 10 I was very lucky to become the youngest member of a political dance group against the apartheid system. However because of the commitment of our family, the situation became somewhat dicey, so we moved to Germany. I finally had the opportunity to complete training as a dancer and a few years later followed the trainings as a certified movement therapist, yoga and Pilates teacher . Through my work I have the opportunity to travel a lot . Each trip brings me closer to what I've been doing with absolute devotion for 23 years - teaching , lead trainings and my great curiosity about the human body . Whether, in my own yoga and Pilates studio in Munich, as an expert in front of the camera or author, I am passionate about what I do. I teach classical Hatha, Iyengar, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Pilates and I work a lot with the fascia . For me, the top priority is to give my students room and never force them into a specific pattern. Why should I force someone to lie on their back in Savasana if they feel comfortable on their belly?!
'I like the variety of styles, materials and colours and the good quality [of Wellicious]. It's like a second skin!'

Jivamukti & Free Floating Aerial Yoga / Ayurveda
www.claudia-lederer.deI enjoyed all kinds of physical activities since I was a child. After many years as a personal trainer in the fitness- and aerial area, I accidentally encountered yoga. Since then I have been working intensely with a variety styles of it.
My first passion in life was working in the gym, my 2nd great passion was and is yoga and my third passion is free-floating aerial Yoga. All my knowledge, my enthusiasm and experience I bring into the free-floating practice.
Free Floating Aerial Yoga is a unique method that is based on a special concept, with selected asanas, a thought-out class concept and with special training sequences.
I am a fitness-and B-and A-licensed Step- and Aerobics instructor, also licensed Hot Iron instructor and personal trainer. But since 2003 I teach and practice only yoga.
I took part of Dr. Patrick Broome’s training program for one year, after in 2005 I did the Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Training with Sharon Gannon and David Life at the Omega Institute in New York.
Since then I have been teaching in several different centers in Munich (including the Jivamukti Center & Leo's Sports Club), privates, as well as at my own Yoga Retreats in Ibiza.
In addition I participated in April 2007at a pilot project to IHK-certified yoga teachers and in March 2010 I successfully finished my training with as a European Ayurvedic therapist.
In 2011 I graduated from New York's Teacher Training Antigravity Yoga. Since December 2012, I am a certified Antigravity teacher.
I am developing Free Floating Aerial Yoga, in which I bring all my knowledge my enthusiasm and my experience.
In January of 2014 the first Free Floating Aerial Yoga Teacher Training was held in Airyoga Munich.
'I like the philosophy and the clothes. So I will promote Wellicious on my facebook wall and on the DVD.'
Munich, GermanyVinyasa YogaI have about 25 years experience teaching body work. Today I live in Munich teaching Vinyasa Style Yoga and sharing my passion for yoga and life on retreats worldwide.
I feel inspiration through practice leads us into full awareness of our hearts. So we can always return to that place where 'independently from outer circumstance' we will find peace. Often we'll meet obstacles on this path: our intellect, our body, our expectations and preferences.
Yoga allows us to free ourselves from these hindrances to experience our true nature - that, what we really are: free, wild, full of love and joy without conditioning, without fear.
I am most thankful for my path in life that led me to accept the greatest of all teachers: life itself. And I am grateful for all the beautiful people around me - family, friends and students - sharing this path, living, loving, learning.
'I like that Wellicious embraces the yogic philosophy by acting responbsibly using only sustainable materials thus protecting nature and the health of the yogis and yoginis wearing Wellicious clothing.'

Munich, GermanyHatha YogaI am a trained and certified yoga teacher (WOYO® Hatha yoga teacher training, pre- and postnatal Vision Yoga) qualified social educator and a mother.
I teach Hatha yoga, which combines traditional yoga techniques with modern exercise principles. I use tools such as belts, balls, blocks and shoulder plates to prepare simple exercises for classical yoga postures.
The origin of yoga and the belief in the power of nature characterize my teaching. Particularly during my pregnancy, I got a lot of strength and confidence through yoga. My fear of a childbirth was enormous, but then my daughter came into this world through natural birth and was healthy. It was truly an amazing experience.
I come from a very sports-loving family and had my first encounter with yoga already when I was eight years old. I got a children’s yoga book and tried to the postures of crocodile, dog and lion... During my studies in 2002 I began to practice yoga regularly. I lived for some time in New York and London, where I met and visited some workshops with internationally known yoga teachers from different yoga styles such as “Bikram Yoga”, “Yoga Works”, “TriYoga”, “Jivamukti” and now “Laughing Yoga”. In 2011 I fulfilled my dream and completed a yoga teacher training at the WOYO® Club in Munich. Yoga has become an integral part of my life.
It is important for me to be respectful towards my body, mind and soul and also to pay attention to my diet and try or to learn something new each and every new day.

Munich, GermanyHatha Yoga TeacherChristine Rebhan has been working more then 10 years as an executive assistant in several companies, when she suddenly got stuck in kind of a midlife crises. A lot of questions came up to me at that time: Who am I? and what is my purpose in this world? During that time I accidentally stepped into a Yoga class in a Gym in Munich.
And that was the beginning...
Now, she works as a life coach based in Munich Germany. In my work as a mental coach I combine the classical yoga techniques from the big four paths with today’s modern techniques like NLP, EFT (emotional freedom techniques) and Gestalt Therapy for example. It's meant to help you form strategies to overcome emotional blockades and to become aware of learned behavioral patterns. There is so much more to discover, nearly everything we are searching for has been sought in the past. So, we are not alone in our search for self-knowledge.
