I am Tal, a yoga teacher based in Berlin. As a speech and communication disorder clinician, I have extensive medical knowledge about the body. For most of my life, I have danced and integrated movement. Out of these two worlds, I understand the connection to the breath, since the breath is the only thing that is happening in the present. My goal is to make yoga accessible to everyone by gradually introducing my own approach with the yogi philosophy: I believe there's something powerful in self-practice because you can achieve a deeper level of understanding and connect to youself.
PILATES AND YOGA
Yoga and Pilates are two movement streams that complete each other perfectly. Pilates adds strength and stability while Yoga practice is complementing with mobility and flexibility.
COMMUNITY PHILOSOPHY AND LIFESTYLE
Yoga is not just a once or twice a week practice. As part of the practice, I incorporate awareness of our patterns and offer to divert attention from the daily pressures and the uncontrollable need to judge and compare ourselves to others, and to live calm and concentrated lifestyle in here and now.
My teaching style is Vinyasa - flow in motion along with breathing, with every movement asana to asana accompanied by inhalation or exhale accordingly. During our practice, it is important to incorporate breathing awareness, as this is the only thing that exists in the present moment.

A Private Yoga Room
"I have been practising yoga with Tal for some time now,
and I think there are three things about Tal which makes her class stand out -
1. She's a genuinely happy person, so there's a lot to positive energy to derive from her.
2. She's always looking for self improvement, so that sense of inward focus trickles through to her students.
3. She's fully vested in the class, so that makes it a fun class.
Tal is driven by the philosophy of being comfortable with the uncomfortable by breathing and relaxing.
I have been able to bring this learning at my work and in my life - learning to embrace the difficult and work through it as an individual or as a team is the best way to make the difficult seem routine.
Forever grateful to this wonderful friend, teacher and gem of a human being."
