About Christof Bauer (shift_happens_yoga)

Some cultures believe that the number of breaths for every living being is limited. Therefore slow breathing is the key to longevity. I like that idea. When we look at animals that get very old, for example Tortoises, Elephants and Wales, this pattern seems to be true....

Some cultures believe that the number of breaths for every living being is limited. Therefore slow breathing is the key to longevity. I like that idea. When we look at animals that get very old, for example Tortoises, Elephants and Wales, this pattern seems to be true. The emphasis on breath is one of the key factors in my teaching and practice. 

My approach is non-dogmatic, i.e. I practice and teach different Yoga styles. If we look at Yoga as a holistic approach, we could define/combine the styles like this: 

  • Power: building strength and agility (Ashtanga as one example)
  • Flow: emphasis on cardiovascular and connection to the breath (called Vinyasa, Nyasa means, 'to place' and Vi means 'in a special or sacred way'.) 
  • Hatha: flexibility training (and hormonal balance) 
  • Yin: focus on stretching the connective tissues (particularly the fascia) 
  • Restorative: meditative practice that uses props to encourage a passive release of mind and body tension 
  • Kundalini: spiritual practice which encompasses a lot of Pranayama, Bandas, Mudras, Meditation 

Additionally, I focus on: 

  • Anatomy, Alignments and Adjustments 
  • Pranayama – breath control (Prana means life-force or literally breath, ayama means expansion 
  • Balance and Bandhas (Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha, Maha Bandha) 
  • Specialized Pre-TTC trainings, to prepare you for your own Yoga teacher training 

I also offer private classes, just contact me :)
