Sinah Diepold

Yoga Munich

My name is Sinah and I’m born and raised in beautiful Munich, Germany. I’ve created and taught movement my whole life and made it besides other things into my profession. After studying Sports Science at the TU München and graduating from Iwanson International Contemporary Dance I spent some time in New York City. There I was inspired to my own Ballet Barre Fitness concept which has been successful in Munich for over 3,5 years now. Then I fell in love and I fell hard. I fell in love with yoga even though it definitely wasn’t on first sight. It came slowly but with an intensity that surprised me and made me want to dive deeper and deeper in the beautiful teachings of yoga. Now I’m somewhere between teaching ballet barre, dance and yoga, doing retreats, workshops and festivals, modeling on the side and wiriting if it’s for my own book or social media. My book comes out in January 18 but is only in german for now "Yoga Flow Balance“ by Sinah Diepold

What drives you? 

Creating a space where people get inspired and motivated to a healthier and more balanced lifestyle through teaching, writing and sharing. I like to call myself a conscious lifestyle warrior or happiness ambassador. I also never want to stop learning just as much from the people devoting their time and open hearts to me if it is in my yoga, dance or ballet barre class, through social media or in a conversation over coffee.

What’s next in training? 

I’ve never had certain goals in my training. I come from movements that are mainly about quality so my aims in my practice are being more intricate, creating ease in the hardest asanas or dance moves, finding new cues, exploring more depth or just deepening my breath. Feeling powerful and soft at the same time through yoga or barre…

What makes you happy?

Many things: food, movement, sunshine, the humans I love… For me pure joy comes from having the possibility to choose and create a life that is aimed to make me happy in my own personal way.

How do you create balance in your life? 

Definitively through yoga in a way I would have never thought. I tend to never take a break and just keep running. Yoga makes me listen; listen to my breath and what my body tries to tell. Yoga calms my ever chatting monkey mind.

Is the environment important to you?

Oh yes. I’m pretty fresh on the path to leading a sustainable life and contributing to saving the environemnt. It’s hard and complicated but then the easiest thing in the world. I have lots to learn and I’m ready to learn and somehow find a path in balance with a full life and taking care of Mother Earth.

How do you work actively to improve the environment?

I decided to eat almost no more meat fort he environment. I won’t buy or order it, if I’m invited somewhere and they serve meat I might eat a bit if I feel like it. Ibarely consume milk produtcs anymore also. I buy all organic, try as local as possible, donate money to organisations, I use my bike as much as possible and the train instead of flying if possible. I only cooperate with companies that put focus on being sustainable o rare sustainable through very high quality. I barely consume new things anymore and try to share what I learn over social media to encourage more people to be living a conscious life.

What are your three best tips to the world regarding health, training and nutrition?

  1. Ever little step counts – ever little change towards a healthy lifestly is worth it, every time getting your butt up and moving is worth it, evey healthy meal is worth it
  2. Don’t expect yourself to change over night and give yourself room for improvement and failure.
  3. Listen to your body, truely listen. It always knows what you need.

 

How would you describe yourself?

Oh that’s a tough one but I would describe myself as very energetic, positive and open minded.
My mom said when I was a baby „she eats life“. I love that descirption and it stil stands...

What’s one piece of kit you could not live without?

My Yoga Mat – that was kind of predictable…

What are your goals for the future? 

I must say I’ve reached quite a few I never dreamed if reaching before 30 but I would say definitely my own studio, start a family and camping in Hawaii.

Who inspires you and why?

My mom inspires me to never stop reinventing myself or to stop reaching for the stars… This sounds super cheesy but it’s the truth.
