Ulrike Schäfer

800h + Advanced certified JIVAMUKTI YOGA Teacher

Ulrike started practicing yoga in 2006, discovered Jivamukti Yoga in NYC in 2011 – and felt at home immediately. She is driven by the idea that yoga is not a way of constant self-optimisation in a high-pressure society, but a means of connection, of making the world more peaceful. She tries to inspire others by setting a creative, joyful example. Practicing and learning in a community help her to open up more and more, and to find new ways of looking at and understanding the world around her.

After a few detours and several years of practice, she got certified as a Jivamukti Teacher in 2017 in India and completed her 500 h Apprenticeship with her mentor Moritz Ulrich in Berlin in 2018. She’s forever grateful to her teachers, Sharon Gannon, Yogeswari, Jules Febre, Moritz Ulrich – and all the others of the past, present and future – for sharing their incredible knowledge, for their dedication, passion and wisdom.

Ulrike has been living in Berlin since 2005. She studied Cultural Studies and Literature. Together with Dana Sertel, she is the Co-Founder of the Blog daysofyoga.de where they share their experiences with yoga and spirituality.
