Co-Director Peace Yoga Berlin, Medical Doctor
Moritz is a Berlin-based Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga Teacher, founder of the Jivamukti Yoga School Peace Yoga, creator of online courses for yoga teachers and students and facilitator, anatomy teacher and Sanskrit instructor for the international Jivamukti Yoga teacher trainings. As one of few he is a certified instructor for the American Sanskrit Institute for which he is delivering Sanskrit Workshops throughout Europe.
Moritz has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and made this his main profession after completing medical school. At first drawn towards the practices of Yoga through its vast philosophy, mysticism and esoteric teachings he then integrated his knowledge in physically and mentally challenging Asana classes that are topped with an inspiring soundtrack and heart-filled chanting of Mantra and Kirtan.
Till today his teachers are Sharon Gannon and David Life, the founders of the Jivamukti Yoga method, with whom he continues to study regularly and to whom he expresses his deep gratitude for providing the path that he can now walk on. Moritz is also thankful for all the other teachers that he was blessed to study with, such as Ana Forest, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, Bryan Kest, Manorama, Gitta Kistenmacher and Dr. Patrick Broome.
“My deepest wish is that I can support others to use the instruments of the yogic practices to gain a feeling of essential trust which will lead to the realization of their true potential, which is eternal and filled with boundless joy. I am convinced that Yoga is not for everyone, only those who are interested and open-minded, but if they are it is welcoming to all. I feel truly honored to have been given the chance to serve others on this adventure towards the state of Yoga, the state of being reunited with who we really are.”
PS: Following a vegan diet is one of the best Yoga practices and maybe the most essential one.
