Yesim is a turkish name and means Jade, it is taken from the name of the green or white jadeite or nephrite stone. Recently I have found out that my last name Yuva is derived from Hindi (Sanskrit) meaning youth. In turkish it means nest or home.


I am passionate about living healthy, traveling, studying, doing my yoga practice, working on myself, and sharing information. My work as a Yoga instructor gives me the opportunity to connect with people and share what I have learned. I started teaching Yoga right after my 200hr RYT Yoga Teacher Training Certification.
I‘ve also been organizing fashion events and productions for many years as a project manager. I used the skillset from the event industry, turned that over into yoga, and melded it all together to offer yoga retreats and workshops. I like the synergy of working with a partner for better outcomes. You find more about my work as a project manager here

Besides that, I feel very comfortable in front of the camera working as a host, model, and actress.

Home Base

Born and raised in a German town called Krefeld Forstwald, I grew up in an area close to the woods spending a lot of time outside and riding my bike. As a child, there was always passion to discover and to create adventures. So when I look back there are a lot of similarities to my life now. Since I am traveling a lot I try to feel comfortable wherever I am. I have chosen the two beautiful cities Düsseldorf and London to be my home bases. The mixture of the small and cute German town versus the inspirational metropolitan city is an amazing balance for my lifestyle at the moment.
