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 is a life long experiment. When I first discovered biomechanics through the Axis Syllabus, it blew my mind. That was the door to the self… Many others call it spirituality, I still have kind of an aversion for this word, since it associates more with something mystic. Although, I feel like what’s mystic is what we don’t know, and the body gives us answers to many things.
Exchanging knowledge for me is an experience of expansion, enables us to learn from each other, grow together and support each other in this path. So yoga and meditation has been an instrument for me to expand, later it opened doors of sufism and also Buddhist psychology. This is why I say “Yoga is a life altering experience!” It really is!
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.
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. So usually, in my yoga classesI. don’t guide your through standart yoga poses, but more abstract guidance towards discovering your own body and how it functions.
I offer hatha yoga classes in English in Berlin, though through the pandemic I only offer online yoga and meditation classes. Please get in touch for upcoming classes… I’m a mindfulness coach in training and I also 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.
As I mentioned above, sufism is also 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…
