Niloufar Shahisavandi IR/DE

Born in Tehran, Iran, I arrived in Germany with my parents at the age of four.
When I was very young, I discovered the art of using one’s body to facilitate communication.
After studying at the EPSEDANSE dance school in Montpellier and social anthropology at the “Freie Universität Berlin”, I worked with several international choreographers and discovered yoga through a dancer’s perspective.
Being creative, sensitive and full of empathy, I like to share the sense of beauty and aesthetics of gesture through yoga.
This art is an integral part of my life, it gives me a space for reflection, perception, recovery and a feeling of serenity, a combination of peace and joy.
Above all, it taught me to listen to myself more deeply, to acknowledge personal limits and not to force myself to exceed them. Furthermore, it serves as a guide for healing and wellness.
In Brussels, where I have been living with my family since 2016, I completed my Iyengar Yoga Teacher Training with Willy Bok and Rita Poelvoorde. With them and with international teachers I continue my professional education.
In my opinion, Iyengar Yoga enables a personalised yoga practice tailored to one’s own capacity. I am passionate about learning every day and sharing my experiences with my students.
