To my person: My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since more than 17 years and I am teaching since 7 years. Yoga definitely changed my life. When I was 18 years old I suffered from back-pain getting worth with the years. Doctors in Germany wanted me to change my profession and thought about an operation on my spine. I didn’t want that and started trying out different therapies. After a couples of years I came to Yoga which definitely helped with my daily pain and after meeting the right teacher I found the right yoga for my back. With an Osteopath and my own yoga I came out of my pain completely and today I am feeling more fit with nearly 50 than with 18.
Wishing you all a wonderful week
light & love Kiki
