Winni is leading the organizing team for the German Kula - AcroYoga ​Conference. As a peace activist and visionary, he began his journey ​into spirituality, yoga, healing arts and community building in 2006.

His passion for a self-determined life and a healed earth, brought him ​to many wonderful teachers. With whom he did a lot of inner work on ​himself, and collected and developed valuable tools, that he now ​shares with a lot of passion.

In 2008 he discovered AcroYoga as a holistic tool to find connection ​within himself and others. He dived deep into the practice, studied ​with basically every European AcroYoga teacher that was available, ​and did his Teacher Training with Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein ​in 2011.

Together with his wife (now ex-wife) he founded the FLYING YOGIS. He ​became an AcroYoga pioneer, by traveling to many different cities to ​introduce AcroYoga to new communities. Later he also started giving ​AcroYoga Teacher Trainings.

Around this time, he also started diving deep into the art of Thai Yoga ​Massage and began teaching this healing art in workshops and ​trainings.

Whatever he teaches, he loves to focus on community building, implement singing circles and always opens ​up a heart-centered, safe space. Where a wide spectrum of qualities are held, including calming, meditative, ​playful, deep diving, uplifting and empowering.

After his divorce in 2022, he started together with his new partner Avianna McKee to dive deeper into the ​topics of Tantra and Sex, Love and Relationship coaching. He added these new tools to his repertoire, and ​became together with Avianna a teaching couple again!

Her movement journey started 15 years ago with Ashtanga Yoga and ​sports climbing. When she discovered Acroyoga in 2012, she felt ​immediately in love with the practice, especially with the playful ​aspect of Acroyoga, that makes it easy to build connection and trust ​and brings a smile on everyone’s face.

Susanne is certified from Acroyoga International (2015) and Acroyoga ​Montreal (2022). She is a Yoga and Movement Flow teacher, ​Embodiment coach, an experienced bodyworker and Thai Massage ​practitioner.

Her personal movement practice and thinking is shaped by the ​integration of different disciplines (like Yoga, Budokon, Acroyoga, ​climbing, calisthenics, floorwork, Thai Massage, Natural Movement...) ​and the idea to keep on learning and to integrate new movement ​experiences to expand body awareness.

Her passion is to explore and to share movement with the people ​around her. Based in Osnabrück, she put her energy and heart into ​building the community there, organizing Jams and teaching ​workshops, but she also loves to travel and to share her experience at ​festivals, retreats, workshops and other events all over Germany and ​internationally.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Is the German Kula suitable for beginners or people without any experience in AcroYoga?

Yes, the German Kula is very community oriented. You are also very welcome, as an absolute beginner! In every time slot, there will be ​at least one workshop that is especially for beginners, beginner-friendly or open level. There will always be some experienced students, ​assistants, or teachers that can support you.

Does it make sense to participate as a single person?

Yes, definitely! You are very welcome as a single participant! The practice of AcroYoga supports coming in contact, and you will easily ​make new contacts. Many participants will come alone and have the same situation. We will do our best to create a safe space where ​we cultivate qualities like mutual support, connection, respect, mindfulness and taking care of each other.

Can I participate with physical restrictions?

Generally yes, but it depends on your expectations. A big part of AcroYoga is being together as a community. Even if you can't ​participate physically, you will still be part of the community. Nobody will be excluded because of physical restrictions. There are also ​offers, that are physically more gentle, like Thai Yoga Massage, Singing Circles, etc.

Do I get another confirmation mail after I have transferred the money?

No, we are only writing you if - for any reason - the money has not arrived after some time.

Can I get an invoice that I can use for my tax return?

You can get an invoice that you can potentially use for your tax return only form the location for providing your food & ​accommodation. Unfortunally we as a Verein, only give out reciepts (no formal invoices). That way we can keep our costs for ​administation and other side costs at a minimum and give you better prices for the event itself instead.

If you mention in the your food & accommodation booking your invoice address, you will automatically get an invoice by end of July ​for your food and accommodation. To keep our accounting efficient, we would like to do it all at once right after the event and not for ​every single one extra before. Thank you for your patience!

How do I know if there are still rooms available?

This information you can find directly in the registration form. We are posting a "fully booked" , or delete the option immediately when ​a room category is full. If we are not fast enough to delete the fully booked options, we will inform you within the next days and change ​your booking according to the remaining options and your wishes.

Are there day- or weekend-passes available?

Since we kept the prices for the festival ticket as low as possible, we unfortunately can´t give further discounts for people who only ​participate for a part of the time. However, your costs for food and accommodation will be adjusted to the actually length of your ​booking.

Is it possible to not order the food and self-cater instead?

We are working on that topic, but so far, the venue requires, that every participant orders their food with them. The food is served as ​an organic, vegetarian buffet, and there will be for sure something on the table that speaks to you!

Do I need to bring a Yogamat?

Yes, please bring a yogamat (+ optional blanket)

Can I change my booking?

Yes, you can. If you would like to change your accommodation option or transfer your booking to another person, this is possible. Since ​this is extra work for us, we ask for a servie fee of 15€ per person per change.

Can I get a refund, in case of a cancellation?

Cancellations earlier than 14 days prior to the event, will be handled like booking changes (we charge a 15€ fee per person). If you c​ancel later than 14 days prior to the event, we can´t refund you your ticket, but you can still transfer your booking to another​ person for 15€. Please note, that supporter membership fees are not refundable, since this cost is not directly associated with this even​t. So even in the unlikely cas​e​, that the whole event gets cancelled from our si​de, we can´t refund membership fees.

Can I stay together with my friends in one room?

If you all booked together or right behind each o​ther - yes, you can stay in one room. Please mention that in your registration. If you only registered yourself and your friends registered​ one week later, we can not guarantee, that you stay in a group. The nice thing is: in this community​ ​it is so ​much FUN to meet new friends ;) ​For sure we divide in male and female rooms.
