Fabian Bächli

Fabian, even as a child, loved movement. After first training as a landscaper and after his education to become a social worker, he studied dance for three years at the SEAD (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance). After graduation, he stayed on as a teacher. In 2003, his passion for dancing eventually brought him to yoga. From the get-go, he was stoked. As he ventured back to Switzerland, he began to get deeper and deeper into yoga. In Stephen Thomas he found the teacher who introduced him to yoga philosophy as well as to the traditional practices of asana, pranayama and meditation. Fabian's Hatha yoga classes are influenced by different movement languages from contemporary dance. He pays great attention to the best possible anatomical alignment for the body, adapting it to the individual abilities of the practitioner. His classes are also meant to be a journey through the inner body – so practitioners can get to know their own body, can silence their ongoing thoughts and can awaken all the cells within the body. Another focus is set onto the heart – for one, to be more attentive towards one’s own emotional universe, but also, to cultivate happiness and love towards oneself and others. Fabian teaches in German and English.

Claudia Garati

Claudia grew up in Switzerland. She started practicing Hatha Yoga in 2000. After moving to New York in 2005, she enrolled in YogaWorks certified 500-hour Teacher Training program and completed it as a certified Yoga Alliance instructor (current level: E-RYT500® and YACEP®) in 2006. Claudia further studied in New York and San Francisco (2005-2008) with ISHTA Yoga founder Alan Finger, Mark Whitwell, Bridget Shields, and with Restorative Senior Teacher Sara Tirner. From 2016 to 2019, during her time in Asia she also delved into Universal Yoga with Copper Crow/Andrey Lappa, Yoga Nidra and trained with the queen of handstand Marysia Do which complemented her yoga. After 3 years in Singapore Claudia moved back to Switzerland in 2019 again. To her, yoga means both statics and dynamics, which are energetically in balance. In her classes she focuses on proper, individual alignment to guarantee both safety and freedom. Her aim as a teacher is to allow the students to find their breath and consequently become present in each asana and in the moment, i.e. bringing the benefits of yoga off the mat and into today’s life. Claudia teaches in German and English.

I teach a calm, yet strong Hatha Yoga and Yin Yoga for beginners and experienced practitioners since 2006. Aligning the body, experiencing conscious breath and paying attention are three central aspects of my classes. Change your point of view from the outside towards the inside, channel the breath and study mental and physical resistance. A sense of oneness and equilibrium arises.

Mirjam Haymann
Mirjam Haymann

Hong Kong - ever-changing, competitive and hectic, created an exciting stage for Mirjam to dive deeply into the studies of Yoga. She feels blessed to have completed several Anusara teacher trainings and immersions with Patrick Creelman, a highly inspiring and profound teacher. After giving birth to her baby girl, Mirjam further attended a pre- and postnatal teacher training program with Jean Byrne and Michelle Papa. The intensive mentoring with Rinat Perlman, the managing teacher of the Pure Studio Hong Kong, is essential. For Mirjam, yoga presents the opportunity to strengthen the body, to abandon limiting behavioral and thinking patterns with a clear mind, and to confront herself and others with love. She teaches in German and English. Mirjam was born and raised in Zurich. She studied law at the University of Lucerne and is working as a part-time editor.

Natalija Fallocca Bajric

Natalija's classes are nourishing, strong, precise, and accessible. She combines the benefits of powerful yoga, anatomical precision and mindfulness to help you feel strong, energized, balanced and grounded. Each session brings depth and clarity by incorporating Yin and Yang elements to create a safe and calm environment. Although the practice might be physically demanding, the aim of each lesson is to move beyond the asana practice and to connect a little bit deeper with your own essence, to find true harmony deep within.
Natalija’s passion for yoga and her consistent daily yoga practice since 2007 make her a humble and thoroughly authentic yoga practitioner and instructor. Her classes are very consistent and are based on her own personal practice experience with Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin Yoga.
Natalija lives and works in Zurich and Mallorca. She is an entrepreneur in artist management and photo productions since 2007 (www.visualeyes-international.com), mama of Romeo since 2011, and a yoga instructor in the midst of this hectic and demanding life. Her primary teacher, Stephen Thomas, encouraged her to expand her teachings from Mallorca to Switzerland, and step into his seat on various occasions.
Natalija has studied with Josh Summers, Mark Stephens, Michael Hamilton, Richard Freeman, Mark Robberds, Deepika Mehta, Laruga Glaser, Doug Keller, Sudhir Rishi and Sri Dharma Mittra who have all inspired and influenced her natural and pure teaching style. Till today she feels supremely connected to her first teacher in India, Vinod Bhaskaran Sreedevi, for whom she feels deep gratitude each day she steps on her mat.
