Dr. Hermann Traitteur grew up in the southern German town of Munich, where in the late 1980s, he first came into contact with Iyengar Yoga. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, he moved to Berlin in 1990, where he studied medicine and began his medical career in an orthopedic clinic. When he was studying medicine in Berlin, he also participated in a Teacher Training Program at the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco.Following his certification with the Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States (IYNAUS), he has furthered his education through annual stays at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute (RIMYI) in Pune, India.In 1994, Hermann Traitteur and Claudia Böhm established Yoga Mitte — the first Iyengar Yoga studio in the former eastern part of Berlin. In the early 2000s, Hermann and Claudia were joined by Annette Herrenleben, who had been studying and assisting under the guidance of the Iyengar family at RIMYI in Pune for more than a decade.With B.K.S. Iyengar’s blessings, Yoga Mitte was renamed the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Berlin. In addition to teaching regular yoga classes, Hermann Traitteur opened a yoga therapy practice in the same location.Since the end of the 1990s, he has been a lecturer and assessor within the nascent Iyengar Yoga teacher training programs throughout Germany.His dissertation, published in 2012, is a study of the effects of Iyengar Yoga on chronic neck pain.
