Being a yoga teacher

Realization of the year: Being a yoga teacher is a seriously underrated role! And I'd really like to distinguish here between "teaching yoga" and "being a yoga teacher". To me, "teaching yoga" can happen rather quickly - you can learn the cues, demonstrate (or not), adjust (or not), structure a class (or not), show presence …

Yo. Yoga. Yogaconmigo ♥

Sunday morning after a fantastic evening with wonderful people in Madrid: certainly not my fittest hour! But as I learned in my teacher training course, hatha yoga practices bring energy to the body, and then help calm the mind. I could use both 🙂 I found online that there was a 12pm class at Yogaconmigo, …

Feel Good Friday Yoga

Friyay! TGIF! … and so on. Who doesn’t get excited about the end of the traditional work week? I certainly do, but also think Fridays are packed with hyped expectations: you may want to leave work soon, see friends, have a few drinks, cram some errands… while all the time you're drained after 5 days …

1 year old!

1 YEAR! Tonight my blog turns 1 year old! On 30 Oct 2018 I started this personal project to capture what I thought were *all* yoga studios in the city of Zurich. There were >70 in my initial list. Currently I'm counting 89 in Zurich city and Thalwil. I used to look at my stats …

Evolving my yoga – with Barrie

Anyone who thinks there's a lot of yoga going on in Zurich should go look at the triyoga London timetable: it's insane how many things are going on all over this chain of studios… and in each single one! For curious yogis (like me), this is a big FOMO source 🙂 My latest trip to …

Intro to Katonah Yoga

It's no news that yoga variations / interpretations / styles are popping up all over the Western world, and Zurich is certainly not the exception. I'm not talking about beer or gin or goat yoga, but innovative movement practices with a different take on yoga principles. Katonah Yoga is one of those emerging practices and it's …

Experiencing Yogasana

Some yoga classes are special. They're experiences. The Yogasana class I had last weekend with Stewart Gilchrist was more than an experience. It was a manifesto: a spiritual, political, intellectual manifesto. It went beyond physical practice, breathing, meditation, and became a reflection on today's world, consumerism and hipster yogis... among other things. Let me start …

Yoga by colours: ChromaYoga London

Back in May, as I researched "best yoga studios in London" I came across a list of 15 cool locations, each with impressive facilities, innovative concepts or brilliant teachers. Still, the studio that really intrigued me was ChromaYoga: it offers yoga combined with light and colour therapy, where each class has a colour aligned to …

Lotus Flow experience in Madrid

Madrid is an intense city with a lot of personality, that's for sure! So then it's less of a surprise when your yoga class boasts the same qualities 😉 I'm talking about my Lotus Flow class with Colette Maynard, at Zentro Urban Yoga in Madrid. In most places, Sunday evening yoga classes are to unwind, …

reiki: relax. restore. reveal.

A few months ago, one of my close friends told me she will be hosting a reiki master who is coming to Zurich for a few weeks of private sessions. I said it sounds awesome, signed up for a session and posted the event here. I'll be honest: I had NO CLUE what reiki is. …
