Sita is the Founder and Owner of Evolve Yoga and Forrest Yoga Guardian and Teacher. Sita found her way to yoga 18 years ago after the birth of her oldest child. What started out as a need to simply find a way to balance a stressful job in telecommunications software and family life with children, quickly deepened into a practice that Sita felt compelled to pursue. After a few years of practicing various styles Sita found her home in Forrest Yoga. Sita became a Forrest Yoga Guardian in September 2017 and now runs her own mentorship programs out of Berlin. Sita is currently pursuing a four year professional training in the Mindfuness-based Body Psychotherapy methodology of Hakomi and brings her experiential learning of the body-psyche connection into her teaching.
Sita is enthusiastic about teaching her students how to live free of pain – physical and emotional. She brings in a quality of mindfulness into the way she teaches Forrest Yoga that encourages students to look into their own emotional patterns, accept themselves for who they are and evolve from a place of acceptance and being good enough. Her classes are normally All-levels and she brings exquisite attention to injuries.
Sita also shares her healing touch with her students – with the permissions of her students, she uses her hands-on adjustments as way to hold space for the student while they process and breathe. The sensitivity and depth with which these hands-on adjustments are given, create an incredibly healing and accepting environment where, as human beings, we get to connect to one another on a non-verbal, feeling level.
Sita is also one of the co-founders of Earthwalking – a platform that organizes the Earthwalking Festival and other Forrest Yoga related events in Berlin and fosters the growth of the local Forrest Yoga community and aspires to promote living in Balance and Beauty.
