NOSADE teaches holistic yoga with an emphasis on health benefits.
Focusing on bio-mechanically and anatomically correct movement, we view yoga as a means to promote and maintain quality of life, health, and autonomy on a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual level.
Our teaching styles range from Anusara, Hatha, (Power-) Vinyasa Flow, Iyengar to restorative and Yin yoga.
In our fundamental conviction that the mere practice of poses is not enough to cultivate a healthy, and – most importantly – conscious sensitivity for our body both on the inside and the outside, we deepen the understanding of our very personal (motion-) patterns throughout our yoga retreats and during our travels and again and again create connections to everyday life. Focusing on bio-mechanically correct movement patterns and holistic well-being, motion and strength, breathing technique, classical yoga philosophy, spirituality and meditation, our scope expands to the therapeutic aspects of yoga.
The ancient philosophy of yoga in its full extent, in connection with advances in and adaptation of the Asana to the needs of the 21st century human body, make yoga the marvelous, helpful, clear, and rewarding path that it is.
Our Yoga classes are taught in English and / or German.
As founder of yogafürdich in Berlin in 2008 Victor looks back on decades of own yoga and meditation practice. Next to completed trainings and workshops in yoga and gym, he is practicing constantly and regularly yoga and meditation as his life and health elixir. This knowledge he is sharing with his students and fellows. For him it is important to always to face the people who come to him in the classroom, with an open heart, without wanting to moralize them, especially in terms of their lifestyle.
“I am a very free-spirited yogi who has learned through the years about my own practice and especially from my own experience to combine the ancient tradition of yoga with the events of modern life and to unite them. Therefore, my teaching is authentic, clear and precise, often demanding and intense, yet leaving enough room for the fun and the joy of Yoga. “
Victor is teaching Power Vinyasa Flow Yoga, a modern style of yoga which can affect on transforming one’s entire personality.
Since 2012, Sabine is teaching a mindfulness-based, calm and precise yoga style in Yogastudios and private lessons in Berlin.
After two decades of her own yoga praxis, she decides for her first training at Spirit Yoga in Berlin, another training in the traditional style after Sivananda, training in Yin and restorative yoga as well as yoga therapy.
Basis of her teaching is the flowing style of Vinyasa Yoga with the emphasis on Pranayama and meditation.
Yoga does not have a certain way or style for her, but is an individual practice path, in which you have to experience and explore always new paths and ways and reevaluate, where you stand, what you need and where to go.
Her lessons provide the space to go this way with joy and enthusiasm.
“I’m focused on cultivating AWARENESS & BALANCE through truly listening, offering the knowledge I’ve been taught by exceptional teachers and mentors, and through body work and facilitation. Whether it’s exploring presence of breath and Qi, in movement or stillness, my sessions are designed to reinvigorate all the layers of being.”
Evelyn is a 500HR Certified Teacher, with a background in Vinyasa, Tantric Hatha (inc. Pranayama, Yoga Nidra, Meditation & Yin), Qi Gong Kung Fu, Shiatsu, disciplined self-study and an inquisitive mind.
She facilitates one on one sessions in Yogic practices, Meditation and Breathing Techniques. Evelyn also offers Shiatsu therapy and massage. These practices are a renewal of energy. She’s working with the physical, mental and energetic bodies. Zen, awareness and practice can help revitalise and shift habitual patterning.
“Training in Tantric Hatha with Zuna Yoga taught me the dynamic exchange of breath and its ability to harmonise our experience. My Diploma in Shiatsu & Oriental Therapies taught me balance. It was more like life school really! I believe the symbiosis of different traditional techniques (Kundalini, Tantra, Hatha Yoga, Taoism, Shiatsu and Chinese Medicine) creates a stream to freedom in the mind-body connection.
I teach in line with the lineages I’ve studied and in respect of the traditions and teachers before me.”
Lauren is passionate about all things related to life, love, and spirit, and is grateful to be sharing the benefits of a consistent spiritual practice with communities around the world. A language teacher by trade, Lauren began her transition to the healing arts in 2016, after several years of exploration in the New York City yoga community. She became manager of her neighborhood yoga studio, while simultaneously completing her first 200 hour Hatha/Vinyasa Teacher Training. She was completely immersed in the worlds of yoga, massage, Reiki, crystals, energy, acupuncture, plant medicine, and sound, and ever since has gravitated towards these modalities. After leaving New York in the fall of 2017 to walk the Camino De Santiago, Lauren has found her way to Morocco, where she has taken up the Ukelele, sat her first ten day Vipassana, and been teaching for the past few months.
Lauren believes that students already know the answers and the work of the teacher is to assist in this discovery – reminding us to turn inward, focus on our breath, and return to our hearts. Her teaching is a blend of all the practices, places, and people she has encountered on her path, and she looks forward to sharing with the NOSADE family.
Judith teaches Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation in Berlin. Yoga has been an integral part of her life for six years. At the beginning, yoga was just a tool to relieve back pain. But then yoga became more for her: Yoga is her anchor and hold in life.
In 2017 she completed the 250 hours teacher training at yogafürdich with Victor Thiele, Frauke Schroth and Sandra Winkens. This was followed by further education with Elena Brower, Gurmukh and Katonah Yoga. Her great love for Ayurveda and essential oils are additional parts of Judith’s work.

Movement and body as an instrument to create harmony have always been an integral part of her life. Gaia studied classical, modern and contemporary dance for 16 years. Inspired by Vinyasa Yoga her teaching style emphasizes body awareness and alignment, focussing the attention on cultivating sensibilty, honesty and concentration on the mat and in life.

For over 10 years you can find nomad heart Katrin regularly on the mat. In the yoga practice, she found peace and strength from the very beginning – serenity and gratitude followed.
The desire being able to pass that to others has initiated her doing a yoga teacher training in 2013 in India at the Ashiyana Yoga Centre and aroused her interest in yoga and holistic life approaches. Additionally it is Katrin’s heartfelt concern to integrate yoga into a normal life, to practice with fun and joy and to submit no overlying strict dogmas.
She is encouraged in each class inviting people to take a step towards the path to themselves – whether on a roof terrace over Marrakech, in the vastness of the desert or at the beachfronts of the Atlantic!
Katrin lives in Berlin and teaches Power Vinyasa Flow and Power Core Pilates.
Kerri is living & teaching Yoga and Reiki in Marrakech. She has been practicing yoga for the last 12 years and finished her Hatha yoga teacher training in Austin Texas. She is teaching a mix of the styles she has been practicing herself throughout the years: Ashtanga, Bikram, Hatha Flow & Restorative yoga. Further than that she incorporates energy work, meditation and mantras into her teaching.
Kerri further is trained in Reiki and is offering her Reiki treatments during the retreat.
Reiki, which is another name for chi, prana, or life-force, is a Japanese energy healing technique where the practitioner uses her hands with light touch or no touch-hovering the hands above the area where energy is being directed. The practitioner will often guide energy using her hands to the energy centers of the body known as the Chakras, but can also give a full body treatment by simply placing or hovering her hands on the shoulders or feet.
Receiving Reiki often results in deep relaxation, has the ability to bring about a mediative state, and can allow the body to find its natural balance. When the body is in balance stress, pain, and mood are positively affected to the benefit of the client receiving the Reiki. Many clients report afterwards feelings of heat, cold, or vibration/pulsation where the practitioner has her hands, however it is also perfectly normal to feel no more then a sense of relaxed calm.
Reiki is perfect for the majority of guest and can be received in most health states and by all ages, including pregnant women. Reiki is especially good for those who need relaxation but can not receive hands on touch or have an injury / body pain that prevents them from tolerating a traditional massage.
Persons with pacemakers and diagnosed/treated mental illness are not candidates for receiving Reiki.
Each Reiki session last 45 to 60 minutes. It is advisable to plan to receive Reiki at a time/day where you can relax after the treatment without being in a rush to allow full assimilation of the session.
“I was born in the Netherlands, where I lived most of my life. After traveling around a little bit, I settled down with my family (for now) in Marrakech, where we have been for almost two years.
I have always loved to travel and yoga helped me stay grounded and in balance, finding my home on my mat. It started out as a purely physical practice, but soon enough the amazing side effects made me want to dive deeper into this beautiful practice.
Through yoga I learned so much about myself and started seeing that I am right where I need to be, wherever I am. Now as a mom of two young boys, yoga helps me stay calm and mindful.
I finished a 200 hr YTT and I feel so blessed to be able to share this practice with kids and adults here in Marrakech.
I teach playfull vinyasa classes with the focus on exploring your body, gratitude, self-love and fun! For me yoga is all about love, respect and kindness, on and off the mat.”
Movement, change, dynamics.
Introspective, calm, balance.
Yoga unites aspects of life that seem to have nothing in common.
On the mat we feel these opposites.
“In my practice and my teaching, I emphasize on biomechanical orientation, which brings change through introspective that allows us to master our daily life dynamically but yet calmly.
Physical and mental well-being. This is yoga. On the mat and off the mat!
Trained in yoga therapy, I also teach students with limitations and find individual paths in the yoga practice and for everyday life.”
Henriette teaches Anusara orientated yoga at all levels, with the goal of building a bridge between mat and everyday life together with her students. As an experiential educator, she always follows the motto “A gram of experience is worth more than a ton of theory.”
Don`t push the river it flows by itself. (Berry Stevens)
Jutta is a yoga teacher, painter and analytical Gestalt therapist. She lived and worked for 25 years in Salem on Lake Constance. For many years she already travels to Morocco and has lived 6 months in Marrakech.
With Yoga, Gestalt therapy and painting she combines everything close to her heart. Her focus in teaching yoga goes especially towards body awareness, towards feeling blockades and pain and to seek relief within. Depth fasciae work is her favorite area. People who have made not any experiences with yoga or who feel physical limitations are in perfectly good hands. Experienced yogis have the opportunity to dive deeper and to rediscovering levels.
As a traveling yoga teacher, Feli’s mission is to inspire and motivate as many people as possible in their own yoga practice. “Yoga is my basis for a happy, healthy and self-determined life in the here and now – that’s what I call YOGALICITY :)”
Feli emphasizes the importance of a careful practice, as well as the perception and acceptance of one’s own needs. This is the basis for her to approach and transform individual boundaries with joy and ease.
The roots of her yoga education lie in classical hatha yoga. This was followed by further education in the areas of yoga therapy, Yin Yoga and Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga. In addition to dynamic yoga, she is passionate about teaching Yin Yoga because she is fascinated by the healing and transforming power of this yoga style.
Nadine has lived in Berlin since 2002 and has also found yoga there. Especially in the bustling city, she finds her little daily break. The yoga mat is for her a small island on which the world out there should not matter for 90 minutes.
She has practiced for 15 years and feels very connected to the flowing Vinyasa Flow style. In 2011 she completed her yoga teacher training with Lara Baumann (Quantum Yoga) in London and in 2016 the further 500+ education with Patricia Thielemann (Spirit Yoga Berlin).
Nadine teaches fluent, dynamic and above all powerful yoga classes. She attaches great importance to motivating her students to draw from their own strength and to meet their own practice and themselves with humor and ease. The time on the yoga mat is to give the student a sense of strength, but also peace, in order to be able to face everyday life stronger.
Two years ago, she discovered her love of restorative yoga and also offers Yin Yoga lessons. Through regular workshops and further education, among others with Max Strom, Bryan Kest, Ana Forest, Tias Little and many others, she finds new inspiration for her own practice and her lessons.
Traudi Pich discovered yoga in 2001. After years of work in the fitness industry, her desire for more peace and serenity had grown. First, the body-oriented and dynamic “Power Yoga” after Bryan Kest with numerous workshops with him. The millennia-old healing system fascinated her, not only the positive effect on the body through a better posture and flexibility but also the balance and peace that you could experience after every hour. To deepen this, she completed a medical-scientific Hatha Yoga teacher training in 2008, as well as the “Prana Vinyasa Flow” training of Shiva Rea. After two more educations and many teachers and influences, for which she is very grateful, she regularly teaches open classes, personal yoga, and workshops.
Traudi lives in Ingolstadt and since 2017 runs her own studio Try2Fly “Yoga and Ayurveda”. Her style combines various influences such as Vinyasa Yoga, Prana Flow and Kundalini Yoga. In flowing sequences, somatic and energetic levels of the body meet and fill all cells with life and vitality – we feel this as calmness, centering and inner balance.
In his chosen home town Berlin Jens Simon teaches for various studios such as ‘Yoga für Dich’ in Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain and Schöneberg. Jens also teaches occasionally in big companies such as Mercedes, Lufthansa and Deloitte.
Originally raised in Hamburg, his base was first martial arts and dance, followed by the invigorating Vinyasa Yoga. The sense of well-being, ‘wring out stress’, strengthening the body and clearing one’s mind is what keeps him attracted to Yoga as a whole. ‘How can one preserve this ease in everyday life? What would need to change? How could my needs find more fulfillment?’ were questions that Jens gradually found answers to.
Jens Simon was trained and mostly influenced in the beautiful East Village of New York on ‘Yoga to the people’, a fund-based studio – usually filled with people of all nations, professions and worldviews. Similar to his personal practice, Jens Simon offers Vinyasa Yoga in the morning, activating and invigorating, while in the evening Yin Yoga and meditation are in the foreground – slowing down and calming – to gradually leave the day behind, to activate self-healing powers and to process impressions.

“My life’s mission is to support you to re-discover your authenticity and live in it completely, I will support you to find your ultimate wellness through yoga and a healthy lifestyle.
Suffering is part of life. When I personally realized that suffering actually came from the constant looking for happiness and the perfect life, something changed in my own life. Recognizing that being unhappy comes from a wrong perspective and wrong thoughts everything changed. Now I feel that I want to live life as a whole, with all the ups and downs, and not just the happy side of it. Life is beautiful and perfect as it is, and that is happiness.“
Anica founded NOSADE to share authentic travel experiences in beautiful, diverse, and ever fascinating Morocco with like-minded nomad-hearted people.
One of her concerns as an entrepreneur is combining a conscious approach to nature and culture on the one hand with a company that creates jobs for locals and operates in a sustainable and fair fashion on the other. She strives to provide both clients and employees with educational and formative experiences.
As a yoga teacher she blends knowledge of the bio-mechanical aspects of healthy motion in yoga with a balanced and conscious approach to life that is rooted in thousands of years of yoga tradition and teachings.
“Make conscious choices about how to move – joyfully, and yet skillfully and aware – how you want to think and feel and take these learnings from the mat to your daily life.”
Anica is a trained yoga therapist. She also teaches Anusara yoga to students of all proficiency levels, focusing on the development of an autonomous awareness for a pain-free and self-determined life in motion.
