Eileen von Knobelsdorff

Owner of My Happy Place and House of Yoga


Eileen, RYT 500 Yoga Alliance certified, owner of My Happy Place and House of Yoga, completed her 200 YTT in Thailand (Indian school Mahi Power Yoga) & her 300 YTT in Sri Lanka (with Dr. Ganesh Rao, Mathieu Boldron ) as well a Yin & Chinese Meridian teacher Training with Annie Au. She deepened her knowledge with an 85h Pre & Postnatal training as well as a 40h FlyHighYoga training (aerial yoga). She was drawn towards Yoga at the age of 5. What began as a hobby, led her to realize that Yoga is more than just the practice of asana, but to create a space to deepen her inner connection of body & mind, a sense of inner calm & self-acceptance.

This international yogi received a Master’s degree in International Business & was working for several years in the corporate world. Yet, she was always convinced that “you are never feeling truly satisfied by work until you find your real passion and follow your heart”. This was her true call to make the leap to pursue her passion for teaching Yoga. She is grateful to be able to share her love for yoga, helping people to reconnect with body & mind and improve their well-being.

Traveling throughout the world, Eileen lived and practiced Yoga in 9 different countries & volunteered for an NGO in Ecuador. This passionate dancer speaks fluently 6 languages.

Being a happy health-conscious person, she follows a healthy lifestyle including clean food & alternative healing methods. Yoga is being one of the holistic powerful tools that she believes can promote healing for just everybody.

Eileen’s passion and style for Yoga are infectious, bringing elements of flexibility, strength and balance. Her goal is to share an accessible practice, encouraging students to break through their perceived limitations both on & off the mat. She is a true believer that yoga is for EVERYBODY. Having given birth to her first baby in 2019, was the most transformative experience & made her re-discover yoga in a completely fresh way. It showed her what miracles the body can accomplish, connecting her with her body on a deeper level. After pregnancy she felt again like a beginner on the mat, enriching her practice & teaching with even more compassion, patience, and acceptance, favoring simplicity over “acrobatics”.
