Art Claas van der Heide

Born in Heidelberg, one of Germany’s strongholds for Basketball and Rugby, I have always been obsessed with sports. I started, in a typical German manner, with soccer, switched to tennis, dancing and basketball - but my heart always burned for fitness sport in general.

Nadja Palmers

"Nadjas' love for nature, people ,dance, meditation and fitness brought her to a Vinyasa yoga class in college. She found in yoga the perfect combination of all things she loved.
