Ātmikā Yani Nöerren
Ātmikā was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and grew up in Hamburg, Germany. She came in contact with meditation and spiritual practice in early age when she was a small child. However, music has always been part of her life. She was taken to her very first yoga class by her mother in her late teens when she was hustling with exams in high school in 2001. She studied Music & Media Management and Marketing in London and worked in the music and media industry for almost 10 years until she met her teacher Manorama D’Alvia, who has changed her life completely. Since 2012 she has been studying her with the ancient yogic scriptures, yoga philosophy, Sanskrit mantras and has made that as her main focus of her yogic and spiritual practice. In 2013 Ātmikā did the Jivamukti Yoga teacher training in New York. Her gentle but powerful and clear voice leads the listener into a meditative state that makes one feel serene and calm, in line with mind and soul.

The session includes Sanskrit mantra chanting and targeted asana sequences, which have a specific and healing effects on the body and mind.
Music is the yoga of sound and is the state where different sounds and tones harmonise and fuse together. A piece of music can move us so much that it enters our soul and lifts up us. Why is that? Sound and vibration is a form of energy and that we ourselves are also energy. Our human body consists of up to 60% out of water; and water conductor for sound and vibration.
Chanting Sanskrit mantras has a powerful and healing effect as well as on the
physical and the subtle energetic body. Mantras are especially effective in calming the nervous system and uplifting the mind and emotions. Sanskrit, the language of ancient yogic scriptures, has a very specific frequency. It has a high and powerful resonance on the human body, animals, plants and all existence.
The practice of yoga dissolves physical and energetic blockages in our body. As a result, our body is tuned and becomes more sensitive to subtle sound and vibrations of the mantras. The effect is deep healing and relaxation.
