In a previous life Carsten enjoyed sailing, surfing, diving, skiing and alpinism. He also used to be an office slave for multinational companies, but he enjoyed that less than the adventure sports. Since the day Carsten discovered yoga, it has become his daily medicine for anti-ageing and mental health.
He learned ashtanga from Rolf Naujokat in India in 2006. Carsten completed teacher trainings in his home-base of California with Tim Miller and Doug Swenson in 2010. Over the years he has fine-tuned his knowledge with Prem, David Swenson, Nancy Gilgoff, Matty Ezraty, Erich Schiffman and many others. Carsten thinks that once you start your yoga journey, you can enjoy learning more for the rest of your life!
Special thanks to his teacher Nuno, to his partner Karin, and to the entire yoga community. He feels privileged to pass on this practise to others.
Carsten also owns and teaches with Karin in Little Yoga in Oelegem!
