Mark (Elmo) was born in Germany. After an intense three-year education as a Gymnastic-, Movement and Dance Teacher, he decided that teaching had to wait, cause even though a late bloomer in his twenties he fell in love with dance. He enrolled in the prestigious Codarts-Academy, Rotterdam to study contemporary dance. He worked over the next ten years in different shows, musicals and projects all over Europe.
As a dancer Yoga seemed a natural development, so he became a certified Sivananda Teacher, but only at Svaha Yoga he found a combination of physicality, music and philosophy that kept him enthralled. He graduated successfully the Teacher Training with Patrick and Goesta, but knows that the trip just has started.
“ The more you learn, the more you are aware that you know so very little.
Not just about my own practice and teaching but how to make Yoga a constant part of my life.
I just keep on thinking, “I’m not THAT kind of yogi”,
but every day I find out more and more about who and what I am.
Just don’t take anybody serious, especially not yourself.
If you can’t laugh anymore during your practice, RE-THINK !!!”
