Yoga with Stefan
Stefan Dreher teaches yoga to the dancers of the Tanztheater Wuppertal. He is also a dramaturg and assistant to the company’s artistic director. His yoga teaching follows B.K.S. Iyengar and focuses on basic postures that strengthen self-confidence, awaken hidden energies and increase awareness of the body. Pranayama, relaxation, meditation and yogic philosophy are also part of the programme. The intensive yoga class offered as part of under construction is suitable for all dance lovers who want to explore the connection between dance and yoga. Beginners, advanced yogis and non-dancers are all welcome. All you need is a yoga mat (if you have one), a belt, and perhaps a chair nearby.
Stefan Dreher trained at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in Amsterdam and with B.K.S. Iyengar in Puna in India. He ran his own Iyengar yoga studio in Belgium for ten years and has been teaching yoga to almost every dance company in Belgium since 1997. He has also led yoga programmes for dance students at SEAD Salzburg, Palucca University of Dance Dresden, P.A.R.T.S. Brussels and the conservatoires in Prague and Antwerp. “I am particularly interested in passing on my knowledge to non-dancers, older people and those who are less mobile or flexible, but who like to be challenged.”
