Courses with health insurance subsidy


All “Präventionskurse” at a glance


The YogaCircle Berlin Academy offers a variety of preventative courses, in which you receive a health insurance subsidy. From the participation fee, most statutory health insurance funds even take over 75 to 120 euros. The procedure is quite simple: You pay the course in advance with us and at the end of the course you will receive a certificate of participation. You will forward this to your health insurance and they will transfer you the allowance.

The classes at YCBA with a health insurance allowance are courses for primary prevention according to § 20 Abs. 1 SGB V. Our teachers Dipl. Sportwissenschaftler Thomas Bessel and Dr. Kinga Hiller-Bessel (Sharada Devi) are entitled to teach prevention courses in yoga. Furthermore, Maria Mastrogianni is a qualified sports instructor (University of Athens) and additionally our competent teacher for Pilates!
