Doris completed her 200-hour teacher training at Lyons Den Power Yoga (RYS®) in 2015 – the only Baptiste Yoga studio in NYC. In the same year she also received her Level One certification from the Baptiste Institute.
During her long and fast paced marketing career in high tech and travel, Doris has always made time to work out, either at the gym in energetic classes or outside running or skiing. After trying various kinds of yoga and still skeptical, in 2003 she discovered the power vinyasa style and ever since was hooked. Always drawn to vigorous classes, she realized that through this powerful yoga practice she not only gains strength and physical fitness but also finds balance and ease on and off the mat.
In addition to becoming a yoga instructor, in 2017 Doris got certified as MINDFRESH teacher. Mindfresh is the standard in corporate mindfulness and exists to bring peace at work in the digital age. In a short but efficient session of 30 minutes, the Mindfresh practice consists of mindful movement, breathing and meditation exercises that people practice within their office environment.
Originally from Germany, Doris lives in West Harlem in NYC and currently teaches at Lyons Den Power Yoga. She also teaches privates to individuals and at corporations.
