MEET YOUR GUIDES
Simon began his yoga journey in 1995 with Shiva Rea in the World Arts and Cultures Department at UCLA. Soon after, he immersed himself in the great atmosphere of the original YogaWorks studios in Santa Monica, where he completed his first teacher training with Maty Ezraty in 1998. After apprenticing with Shiva Rea, Simon began leading his own workshops, teacher trainings and retreats. In 2007, Yoga Journal called Simon "one of the most influential and gifted yoga teachers of the next generation". His free vinyasa is fluid, intuitive and promotes freedom through self-expression. Simon is profoundly influenced by his main teachers over the last 20 years - Shiva Rea, Richard Freeman, Maty Ezraty, Joan White and Dharma Mitra. Simon's blend of these influences finds a beautiful alchemy in his style, Liquid Flow Yoga - a mix of classical and modern yoga. Dubbed "The Flying Nomad", he freely draws inspiration from street legends like Jimi Hendrix under the motto "The earth is my home" and now teaches all over the world.
"Yoga is a wonderful compass for living in harmony with yourself, other beings and the environment."
Inspired by her time as a dancer, Sinah's yoga style is fluid, like undulations of the breath guiding you through the flow. In doing so, she invites you to follow your own intuition and trust, reawakening the intelligence of your body. All this with the alignment and precision of a safe practice for a strong and flexible body as a home for a strong and flexible mind.
Sinah is from Munich and has been teaching with passion since she was 15 years old. With her positive energy and smile she guides you through every sweat and flow. Besides studying sports science at TU Munich & a professional dance training, her love for yoga deepened during a YTT in Bali & has been following her heart's desire ever since: spreading yoga, guiding people and sharing her love in a free, accessible and joyful way, inspiring people to leave the habitual patterns in body and mind to embrace a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle to maintain a healthy body.
Therefore, she loves the combination of yoga, functional training and neurotraining & anchors them in her own routines, which also influences her teachings in yoga.
Sophia is a yoga teacher and psychologist from Munich. Her passion is to combine the western way of understanding the human body and mind with the more energetic and spiritual eastern way.
On her way she trained in neuro-linguistic programming and stress management & deepened her passion of dancing and fitness with functional fitness trainings. Soon she realised something was missing and started looking for more holistic alternatives, which led her deeper into the realms of yoga and Buddhist psychology.
She completed her first teacher training in India at a Sivananda ashram (traditional Hatha yoga) to delve deeper into yoga philosophy. Back in Munich, she was taught and inspired by Mark Stephens (Vinyasa Yoga) and Ronald Steiner (Ashtanga Yoga). Since 2016 she has been studying intensively with Simon Park (Vinyasa Yoga) and Susan Michel (Yoga Therapy). In her yoga practice as well as in her teaching, she loves the ease of graceful, flowing movements, playing with challenging asanas and allowing softness and relaxation; combined with a clear anatomical and energetic alignment in asanas and transitions, always with a reference to what the practice on our mat teaches us for our everyday life.
Susan lives near Munich, where she runs a small local space for yoga classes, trainings and Rolfing. Her teaching combines her love of yoga and connection to nature, with a deep understanding of the human body. She draws inspiration from extensive training in Vinyasa Flow (S. Park), Ashtanga Yoga (R. Freemann) and Rolfing/Structural Integration.
Her current yoga practice consists of balancing family life, teaching, giving Rolfing sessions, completing a degree in alternative medicine and finding time for her personal practice.
"The Teacher Training has enabled me to turn my hobby into a profession, but also to find a peace with the ghosts in my head regarding my body. As I have learnt through the Teacher Training that every body is right and it's just about recognising who needs support and some help and where."
"The yoga therapy training with the wonderful Susan was a great addition to the first training because it opens up whole new dimensions and experiences and deepens the holistic understanding of yoga and the effects on the human body and mind."
"With the teacher training at Kale & Cake, I was able to achieve my personal goals of diving deep into Vinyasa Yoga and making my existing classes more creative and dynamic. On the other hand, wonderful acquaintances and friendships have arisen that I never want to miss in my life."
"TheYTT was and is an indescribable, priceless and unforgettable experience for me, which changes and shapes me permanently. I was allowed to meet many dear people, learn, grow, open doors, gather inspiration, courage and hope, find myself, take the first step on one of my new paths, laugh, cry and start to believe in myself, my wishes and dreams again."
"The YTT was a much deeper experience into the world of yoga for me than I ever expected before. I thought I would learn about yoga sequences and how to design yoga classes, but I didn't expect to dive so deeply into yoga philosophy & make a whole new connection to myself and my body."
"Tobe honest, I started the YTT without any great expectations, but full of curiosity, and was so unbelievably positively surprised .The experiences still accompany me, e.g. when you realise again how much more relaxed you have become. After the YTT, I found the courage to start teaching, which gives me an incredible amount of joy and allows so much room for further development."
Registration & Requirements
How do I register for the Yoga Teacher Training (YTT)? Why can't I enrol directly?
A direct booking is unfortunately not possible. If you are interested, please send us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact form below. We will contact you as soon as possible with further information and the next steps.
Do I need to have already attended lessons at Kale&Cake to participate in the YTT?
That is absolutely not a prerequisite. Nevertheless, it is of course good if you get a feeling for the teachers through our lessons at Kale&Cake, especially for the main teachers of the YTTs, Sinah, Sophia and Simon. You can either visit classes on site in Munich or simply participate online and get to know us.
Do I have to live in Munich to participate in the YTT?
No. You can do the online modules from anywhere as long as you have good and stable internet. On the attendance days, when we are in Munich or at Lake Chiemsee, you will of course be on site (please note that you will also have to organise overnight accommodation).
Does my age matter?
No, your age doesn't matter. The average age of our participants so far is around 30-35 years. 30-35 years. The youngest participant so far was 19the oldest participant was 58 years. It's about you, not your age.
Do I have to be physically fit to do a YTT? Do I have to be able to do everything perfectly? I can't do a handstand or headstand, is that bad?
It is important that you are already familiar with the subject of yoga and that you have been practising yoga for 1-2 years. It is not a beginner course, but you will be trained as a yoga teacher. You don't have to be able to do a headstand or handstand, don't worry. You should just feel like getting more involved with yoga, because you will dive deeper into what you are already practicing. But it's not just about your physical strength, it's also about your mental well-being: A YTT is not about self-therapy - it can also be mentally challenging.
I am pregnant. Can I still participate?
We have had pregnant women and mamas in our YTTs. Nevertheless, we are not specialists and pre/postnatal should be taught by absolute specialists. But we do touch on the topics a bit.
What does it mean if I am on the waiting list?
If you are on the waiting list, it means that the YTT you are interested in is fully booked. Nevertheless, reality shows that often latecomers are lucky and can still participate in the YTT.
Can I participate in the 300h Advanced YTT even if I have not done the 200h YTT at Kale&Cake?
Absolutely. The only requirement is that you have already completed a 200h YTT.
Can I also book individual modules from different YTTs?
For organisational reasons, we unfortunately do not offer this. You can only purchase the 15h online modules individually.
When is my registration binding?
Your place is secured if the deposit and full payment have been made up to 3 months before the start of the training.
Contents & Structure
What are the differences between 200h YTT, 300h Advanced YTT, 200h Intensive YTT or 75h Online YTT? Which is best for me?
Both the 200h YTT and the 200h Intensive YTT are basic trainings along the Yoga Alliance guidelines, which are structured differently in terms of time: The 200h YTT is spread in modules over a longer period of time, the 200h Intensive YTT takes place three weeks at a time and on site. The 300h Advanced YTT requires a 200h YTT and is intended for already trained yoga teachers. It also follows the Yoga Alliance guidelines. The 75h Online YTT is exclusively structured in online modules and serves as an in-depth training for already trained yoga teachers, but also for interested practitioners.

Sorry, we do not offer discounts.
Can I also pay in instalments?
In principle, we do not offer payment by instalments. For more information, please visit email@example.com.

Please allow for additional costs for travel, hotel, on-site costs, food & drink, Corona test, return journey, etc. There may be additional costs.
Does my health insurance cover part of the costs?
Possibly. Please clarify this directly with your health insurance company.
