About Jens Simon Petersen:
As a martial artist and dancer, Jens Simon experienced his first Yoga class in 2009. The New York studio ‘Yoga to the people’ made a lasting impression with its philosophy to make Yoga available to everyone, regardless of experience or monetary situation, meaning on donation.
Some years later, after trying out different styles, Jens Simon decided to receive his Vinyasa Yoga certification at the same studio – in New York’s beautiful East Village – where you can join packed classes on 3 floors, bringing together people of all nationalities, vocations and world views.
Since then Jens Simon has been teaching in New York, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Berlin – in open and corporate classes, personal sessions at different Yoga- and wellness studios, in private homes and even outdoors at Berlin’s Tempelhofer Feld in summer.
In addition to his Vinyasa training, Jens Simon has completed a course for Yin Yoga which makes for a valuable contrast to the rather stimulating, flowing Vinyasa style – calming and meditative, focusing on the connective tissues, often compared to an acupuncture treatment – just without the needles.
Jens Simon is excited to offer both styles at his Yoga retreat, together with practical input of indian philosophy and the teachings of Yin and Yang.
