Nathalie Baumann

It was love at first sight, or rather, first move –YOGA. 15 years ago, I found my passion in Yoga and shortly after I started to travel to Yoga retreats all over the world, get teacher training of different styles, have sessions at great studios and ended up having Yoga as a central part of my life. Not only the physical aspect of Yoga fascinates me, but also what it does to the mind; I call it moving meditation, or how to fly without wings.

My passion for teaching and the fascination to work with my body also led me to Pilates. Today I teach Yoga and Pilates where breath and movement become one.

I have decided to work only part-time in my old job, to be able to dedicate proper time to my Yoga passion. I teach personal clients, hold classes and I, of course, do my own meditation and Yoga, preferably daily.

Improves your overall balance, opens & streches your chest and shoulders. Tones your butt and thighs! Who doesn't want that? 😉

Deeply challenges the abdomen, spine and hip flexors. Tones & shapes the Abs, YES we like that! 😊

 

Adho mukha svanasana - Downward facing dog 

Brings blood flow to the brain. It strengthens, lengthens and energizes every one of your muscles. Essential yoga posture. 🥇
