Daphne has been interested in the concept of space from an early age and initially explored this as an architect with concrete man-made structures. She then progressed to studying universal laws on a more subtle level through yoga and within the natural structures of the human body and mind.
From yoga & the human psyche to their projections in the external world, Daphne stitches the inner and outer realms of thought and manifestation together as a means towards integration and wholeness.
Her dedication is in the creation and recalibration towards harmony which moves across scales and boundaries. Her further studies in biogeometry, meditation, energy & movement, geomancy and philosophy are reflections of this same pursuit of peace within and without.
She guides her students to seek the Quality of Space in their Body, Speech and Mind as a way to collect together the fragmented little selves into a singular presence. In this way, a conscious and proactive path towards wisdom and compassion naturally arises.
Anton discovered yoga during his first trip to India after graduating from University in 2002. The Austrian was immediately fascinated with the opposition of challenge and ease in a yoga practice. Yoga quickly became an essential part of his daily life, especially in balancing out the pressures he encountered during previous assignments in multinational corporations like Google as well as a mission with Doctors Without Borders in Africa.
To Anton, Why is just as important a question as How. This interest in the bigger picture lead him towards the old scriptures and modern research early on. Over the years, his study trips back to India gave him a deep understanding of this ancient science and its different traditions. It was also in India where he began to teach and share his knowledge.
Anton uses his strong asana practice as well as his vast knowledge on the historical and philosophical aspects of yoga to guide students into the deeper, subtler practices of yoga.
His emphasis is on the similarities across the different traditions rather than their superficial differences. He believes that it is within this common ground that the essence of yoga is found and handed down to us from one generation to the next. His teachings are stripped from cultural and religious connotations to make them more accessible to modern practitioners.
