About me, Janina (studio manager):

I am creative and body-conscious and love to get myself and others moving. And not just on a physical level.

I originally studied dance at the University of Music and Dance. But at some point I found working on stage too "abstract"; too far away from the people themselves.

I was already teaching during my studies and love initiating a direct effect on people through movement. My dance training led me to Vinyasa Yoga, a very dance-oriented style of yoga. This was the beginning of my love for yoga, which still sustains, fascinates and nourishes me today.

My interest in yoga was awakened from the very first lesson and my fascination with bringing movement, breath, awareness and focus into such tremendous harmony that I felt I could "grow wings". This fascination grew until I completed my yoga teacher training at the Institute for Yoga and Health here in Cologne in 2011. Further training followed, including in other areas (yin yoga, singing bowl therapy, logosynthesis, aerial yoga). For a long time, I taught at various locations in Cologne and in my home town of Würzburg, until I opened my own studio in 2016: "Become lighter! Yoga and more..." A studio for movement, relaxation and personal growth in the lively Kalk district of Cologne. I am now supported by Julia (body therapy), Manuela (yoga), Silvie (yoga) and Annette (aerial acrobatics) and have been able to expand my range of services. Since this year, my studio has also become a training center for prospective aerial yoga teachers.

In the online magazine "Fuckluckygohappy", "Werde leichter!" is named as one of ten beautiful yoga studios in Cologne.

When I'm not teaching, you can find me out and about with my dog, in my little DIY workshop or graphically designing a new project for myself or others, because I love being creative! <3

According to the online magazine "Fuck-lucky-go-happy" one of 10 great yoga studios in Cologne.

Participants' comments:


The atmosphere in Janina's yoga studio is very homely. The fireplace in particular creates a cozy warmth. In her classes, Janina very clearly expresses how much she herself likes what she teaches and conveys this professionally and sympathetically. You feel at ease with her (...) and can let go.

"Weekly highlight"

Preferably 5 more stars! Janina's yoga studio was an absolute stroke of luck. The wonderful atmosphere in the room and Janina's relaxing and calm manner won me over right from the first trial lesson. Since then, my yoga class has been my weekly highlight and I can't imagine life without it!

"Absolute recommendation!"

Great Pilates training with particularly friendly, personal and motivating support from a very professional trainer. Great for strengthening the back (disc prophylaxis) and improving flexibility. There is also good protection against the virus thanks to small classes with plenty of space and ventilation.

An absolute recommendation!
