I'm a certified Tantric Hatha Yoga Teacher (RYT500/E-RYT200) and Ayurvedic Consultant (University of Kerala, U.S.) currently sharing my passion for Yoga and Meditation at Lord Vishnus Couch in Köln and The Vinyasa People in Bonn, Germany. A former professional 400-meter runner and Pro-sports athlete for 12+ years, I have a BA from the German Sports University in Köln, an MA in Media Management and Entrepreneurship from the University of Fresenius and a Bronze medal from the 2012 European Championships. The height of my Pro-sports career was my participation in the London 2012 Olympics as part of the German 4x400 Relay Team.
Since then, my life has taken a different turn, replacing daily running for daily Yoga practice and a great deal of self-study and self-contemplation. Still, my knowledge of sports science, anatomy, and Ayurvedic nutrition helps me provide the type of practical support many students and athletes need to approach the needs of body, mind, and soul.

ALBA DE BEJAR, PHD.
I'm a certified traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher (RYT200), Vedic Counselor and artist focused on one-on-one work. My background, however, lies in academia, where I have worked for 10+ years as a university researcher and lecturer specialized in Gender and Race studies with a focus on identity construction.
The recipient of a Fulbright FLTA and a Marie Curie ITN fellowship, I have a PhD. in the Humanities from the University of Northampton, an MA and BA in English from the Universidade de Vigo, and several years' experience in the private sector too.
In my work at ACEBE, I use my eclectic background and depth of insight to help students find a measure of perspective towards past, present and future events. With a passion for writing and reflection, I run our blog in an effort to make philosophical and spiritual concepts amenable for modern-day individuals looking to dive deeper.
