Petra RiedRegular Teacher
is born in Vienna and commutes between the Toscany of Austria (Burgenland) and Vienna back and forth. Since her childhood dance is one of her biggest passions which even intensified during her studies of dance. She now works as a teacher in this field for many years, in schools and at the institute for sports science.
In 2007 Petra started doing Bikram Yoga and recognized soon that it is the perfect addition to her sports and dance activities. During her 'Bildungskarenz' for the completion of her PHD she graduated in 2014 from the Bikram Yoga teacher training in Los Angeles and attended a spiral dynamic courses.
In my first Bikram Yoga class I realized that the 'stubbornness' of a dancer or an athlete is not very helpful and got to know my body from another side. After time the 'softness' came back. I also experienced that every Bikram Yoga class is different, no matter how many years you have been practicing and that a smile in between may cause miracles.
