Gisela Collazo
Gisela Collazo

Since her first encounter with Yoga in 1995, Gisela has practiced and studied with many amazing and gifted teachers. She has delved into Kundalini Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Vinyasa in Mysore, Anusara, Classical Hatha Yoga and Birthlight Pre + Postnatal and Well Woman Yoga. She has completed over 500-hours Yoga Alliance accredited training and many further education courses. She is a Training Tutor for Birthlight and leads international trainings in Perinatal Yoga.
Gisela has been teaching since 2004. By guiding her students through the physical form and focusing on the breath, she invites them to make their own inner explorations and discover the qualities of joy and gratitude that lie within themselves. Students appreciate her calm and positive manner, her precise and detailed instructions, and the mix of power and restoration that they take away from her classes. 
Gisela's work in Birthlight Yoga has enriched her practice and teaching immensely. By freeing up the rigid physical form of asana to tune into the body's rhythms and seasons, we develop a deep awareness and confidence in our own intuitive wisdom. We promote trust, faith and acceptance for what is, and make space for what is to come. We foster self-nurture and gentleness towards ourselves, which we can then spread to those around us.
Gisela teaches her classes in English. For more information visit her website www.yogaprema.ch

Adrian Wirth
Adrian Wirth

After completing his studies in Environmental Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Adrian lived for one year in Vancouver, Canada. It was there he was first introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Vipassana Meditation in 2002. In the following years Adrian's Yoga practice consisted in the regular practice of the Primary Series. Due to deep experiences with Vipassana meditation and with teacher plants, spirituality and self-transformation began to take a more important role in Adrian's life. This led him to travel to India, where he spent one year teaching Tibetan monks chemistry and biology, practicing asana on the roof of the Buddhist monastery, and diving deeper into eastern spiritual teachings. Currently his main focus is with Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Meditation. Adrian completed his yoga teacher training with Remo Rittiner in Zurich. Adrian's classes follow the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, and are tailored to the student's needs. Dynamic Vinyasa Flow yoga, as well as gentle Ayur Yoga, fit perfectly well into his teaching repertoire. He is using elements like chanting, Yoga-Nidra or simple visualisations in his classes. With his scientific background, he understands well to build bridges between the old yogic wisdom and our modern worldview. Adrian teaches in German and English. He lives with his wife and son in Zurich. For more information please see www.oshadi-yoga.ch

Frank Schmid
Frank Schmid

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.
Frank completed teacher trainings in Hatha Yoga with Ifat Erez in Vancouver, Kanada, at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India, and in Yin Yoga with Paul Grilley.
Frank lives near Zurich, sometimes with his two kids. 
He teaches yoga classes (see below), workshops and retreats, both in German and English.

Tanja Forcellini
Tanja Forcellini

During one of her journeys to the Far East in 1999, Tanja discovered and learned to appreciate Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Yoga has led her to find answers to the many questions she has encountered on her personal life journey - answers that lay hidden deep within herself. Tanja attended the Yoga Teacher Training in 2004 at Centered Yoga in Asia, where she received certification as a Yoga instructor recognized by the Yoga Alliance. After her pregnancy in 2008, she also attended the Perinatal Yoga Training at Birthlight UK. After that time, life guided her more and more towards silence, and silence moved her from Yoga to Meditation.
The loving and conscious contact with, and careful perception of, one's own body are the focus of Tanja's classes, as well as the connection of breath and movement. Since 2017, Tanja has been attending continuing education courses on mindfulness meditation and resilience building. In addition, she completed the Hormone Balance Teacher Training with Salome Noah. To deepen her own practice on the mat, Tanja regularly attends retreats and trainings with internationally recognized teachers. Her spiritual practice is deepened through the challenges of everyday life and especially through stays in an ashram in northern India.
Tanja teaches in German and English.

Nina understands Yoga as an expression of living a conscious life, dedicating love and insights into the well-being of people around her. The beauty of the path lies in discovering life in its purest forms and thus growing a profundity and sensibility with the findings thereof which can be practiced and lived on and aside the mat.

Andrés Gensheimer

Andres first discovered yoga and meditation during his dance studies in Amsterdam and Vienna. As a complement and counter-balance to his dance training, Andres practiced yoga and was immediately thrilled to experience positive and lasting effects on his body, mind and quality of life.
Yoga and meditation are for Andres a unique dance, where he finds inner peace, contentment, clarity and trust. 
In 2011, Andres deepened his joy for yoga and teaching with the 500-hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher training in Zurich. He followed that by an immersion in Restorative Yoga. 
Andres' classes are flowing, powerful, meditative, relaxing and a journey into inner stillness. He teaches in German.

Claudia Geux

Claudia is an International Yoga Alliance® RYT 500 Registered Yoga Teacher in Vinyasa Flow. She was introduced to the world of Yoga in New Zealand, and she realized that this would be the beginning of a long journey. In Switzerland, she began to study the different Yoga traditions and Yoga philosophy more intensively. She was lucky to find the Yoga teacher Olive Ssembuze who taught her self confidence and that she can achieve anything in Yoga and in everyday life. Vinyasa Flow came to be her preferred style and means of expression. The completion of the 200-hour Yoga Alliance Teacher Training with Christine May, Richard Hackenberg and Doug Keller, was followed by completing the 300-hour Yoga Alliance Advanced Teacher Training with Stephen Thomas, Richard Hackenberg and Doug Keller. 
Claudia’s teaching style is flowing, creative and accompanied by music, with the main teaching focus on correct alignment, as well as combining breath and movement into a harmonious flow. It is not only a great pleasure, but also a privilege to her to be able to pass on the wonderful benefits of yoga to others. She teaches her classes in German and English.

Frank Schmid

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.
Frank completed teacher trainings in Hatha Yoga with Ifat Erez in Vancouver, Kanada, at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, India, and in Yin Yoga with Paul Grilley.
Frank lives near Zurich, sometimes with his two kids. 
He teaches yoga classes (see below), workshops and retreats, both in German and English.
