Co-Founder & Co-Owner of Elevate Studio, Kundalini Yoga & Meditation Certified Teacher (500 hr)
I remember very well how I felt after I attended my first Kundalini class. I had been practicing Yoga on and off for a couple of years, mostly Hatha and Vinyasa, when I first heard someone talking about Kundalini Yoga. Without knowing much about it, I went for a trial class. And when I left the studio, I felt so deeply content, calm and at peace. I wanted to know more about it and became curious. And above all, I wanted to feel like that again. Through my regular Kundalini practice I have gained physical and mental strength, confidence, consciousness and peace of mind. And now, I look forward to passing on these effects in my classes.
Besides Kundalini, I love books and have been working in the art book publishing world for many years. I am also one of the founding members and organizers of the independent art book fair VOLUMES (www.volumeszurich.ch)
Movement has always been very important to me. In my youth, dancing taught me to explore my body, to perceive it and also to give it expression. Yoga was a pleasant change for me in the beginning. On my longer trip to South America, I was then completely gripped by yoga fever. Back in Switzerland, I was looking for a balance to my hectic workday as an export specialist. Six years ago I accompanied a friend to a Kundalini Yoga class and had no idea what I was getting into. It was very different, special, precious. I was deeply relaxed and yet full of energy. It was clear to me that I had found my "home". I decided right away to take the 2-year-long Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training (500h). At the same time, I completed the training as a Chakra Therapist with Jean-Pierre Crittin and the advanced training Kundalini Yoga on the chair for seniors with Willem Wittstam . Currently attending an online teacher training with Gloria Latham and I will soon start the Lu Jong (Tibetan healing yoga) teacher training.
I am a passionate Yoga, Pilates & Feldenkrais teacher, certified Tensegrity Facilitator, movement therapist and breath work healer with over 8 years of professional experience in designing and leading group classes and individual sessions. My journey with the movements and inner work started in 1999 as a Tensegrity practitioner and later as a facilitator. In 2006 I start practicing Yoga and it took me some time to decided to become a Yoga teacher but i needed to learn more about this ancient knowledge. In 2014 I completed my advanced Yoga Teacher Training in Zurich, Switzerland, and acquired an in-depth knowledge about postures, breathing techniques and human anatomy. Subsequently, I studied the Feldenkrais method in Milan, Italy for four years, and deepened my knowledge about the human body, the functions of the skeleton and the use of physio-therapeutic massaging techniques, Functional Integration technique.
I am a young and enthusiastic yoga teacher coming freshly from my first 200h teacher training. I have practised yoga for more than 10 years and am still fascinated by how it allows me to find myself. Curiosity and the desire to deepen my practice inspired me to learn more about it and to start a wonderful teacher training in 2021-2022. I am now really excited to continue my yoga journey on the other side of the room and share my knowledge and passion with you.
Certified Meditation Teacher who has been practicing meditation since 2016. I have studied a variety of different meditation techniques and embrace both traditional and modern styles. I believe that our approach should continuously evolve to the needs of the time, and that there is a style of meditation for everyone.
As someone who works in an office during the week and has a toddler at home, meditation has helped me become more resilient in handling the stressors of modern life, increased my focus and attention, and positively impacted my mindset.
My goal as a teacher is to help more people experience the benefits of meditation by making it relatable and accessible. I apply traditional teachings to the modern world to create a thought-provoking class.
Transdisciplinary Artist, Singer, Piano Teacher, Voice Coach, Kundalini Yoga & Meditation Certified Teacher (200hr)
Born in Kyrgyzstan and raised in Germany as a descendant of Russian-German emigrants, I learned early on to put down roots in the in-between space.
Music became my home. In search of freedom, lightness and development of my expressiveness, music led me into worlds of sound that do not divide, the voice led me to my body and to myself. My curiosity for the interplay of our inner world with the outer world grew. Whether I am on stage as a singing performer in a dance production, furthering my education in acting (Chekhow method) or experimenting with the voice as a lecturer with the psychology students of the ZHAW.
Yoga, Holotropic Breathwork and Energy Work are tools that have accompanied me since the beginning of 2001 and supported me on my own life journey. During this time I have come back to myself and now live my life more and more out of the natural being. The Yoga-Teacher-Training in India and the five year training in Transpersonal Psychology & Holotropic Breathwork enriched my life very much. I completed further training in Yin-Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Thai-Yoga-Massage. My focus: to feel completely connected again with one's innermost core, the spiritual levels of our being as well as with this earth & to support and accompany people gaining more clarity, joy, power and connectedness in life.
