Her Yin Yang yoga class incorporates both the strengthening heating yang practice, as well as the deep stretching, meditative and receptive yin approach. If you want to find a practice that covers your everyday needs: the physically challenging moving experience for the body, as well as your minds wish to calm down and become quiet, than this is your class.

The Yin Yang yoga class will enable you to finish your day in a harmonious, balanced way, your body and mind both prepared for a deep and restorative sleep.

Her Yin Yang yoga classes, will lead you through Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences and Yin postures, and incorporate Iyengar yoga teachings and Pranayama (breathing techniques). The breath is her master tool to focus your consciousness towards the asanas and the energetic, emotional state you are in.

Véroniques anatomical knowledge and teaching skills give your practice a really safe ground.

With Many years of teaching yoga, and her background as a sports teacher,  her experience allows her to see your individual body alignment and assist or help you to adapt your asanas appropriately.

 

Her yoga path  started in 2006. Since then she has been studying Iyengar and Ashtanga Yoga mainly. Both practices made and still make her experience the physical and energetic body and taught her to use asana practice as a tool to „detox“ the body and calm the mind.  Besides those two Yoga styles she got a lot of inspiration from different Vinyasa, Jivamukti and Mantra teachers.

Yin Yoga was brought to her more than 10 years ago, but only in the last two years it became her focus of in depth studying.

She bows down in gratitude and devotion to her teacher Katiza Satya.

Living and working as a high school teacher in Basel, she values her self-practice and daily meditation, and enjoys joining different classes and teachers in community.
