Inspiration, authenticity, expansion…
My name is Bihter, I’m a seeker and I’m happy to have discovered my body as an instrument to look into “truth”. I believe that the discovery of the body and the self through the body is a life long experiment. Besides my Hatha Yoga training within the Advaita school and mindfulness; my interest in Sufism and Buddhism as life philosophies and axis syllabus and bio-mechanics as tool kits to understand the body, shape my yoga teaching. In my yoga classes I try to guide you towards discovering your own body and how it functions.
For me yoga is about observation and discovery of the body. It’s about witnessing what is here and now… What is present at the moment and bringing awareness to the changing sensations with each movement. Once one gets closer to the body, it’s inevitable to get closer to the self. Yoga has been a tool me for discovery and the body has been a medium for this journey.
I offered hatha yoga classes in English in Berlin before the pandemic. Through the pandemic, I’ve deepened my experience in meditation and mindfulness even more and become a mindfulness coach. I offer online coaching sessions if you’re interested in exploring the world of meditation and you have interest in exploring yourself more. You can find more information about mindfulness coaching here.
I’m excited to establish an online community of meditating people and through a committed practice finding co-regulation and resiliency and approaching everyday problems from self-care and self growth point of view. If you want to be part of the online mindfulness community here is Sati-Sangha.
Sufism is a teaching that influences my person, who I am and how I approach to life events as well as yoga and meditation so I organise Sufi meetings with a few friends where I show technics to whirl sustainably and explore the world of dervishes all together with original live Sufi music made by musicians around the world. I’m also exploring the world of music myself with my read flute, mouth harp, frame drum and ukulele.
May we all enjoy each moment of movement… May we all indulge into the stillness of the moment and get intimate with the self…
