Chiara and Jürgen, Founders
Chiara is Yoga Teacher, travel guide and Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner.
After her MA in German, English and French Language and Literature at the University in Padova, Italy, Chiara moved to Munich and worked internationally as a manager in the healthcare sector for different enterprises. In her job she was traveling extensively and was able to combine the travel with the yoga practice.
In 2011 she spent two months in India and completed the Yoga Teachers’ Training Course, recognized by the Yoga Alliance and the International Yoga Federation, at the Association of Yoga and Meditation with Yogi Chetan Mahesh in Rishikesh.For her it was a full immersion in the discipline she has been practicing for years, a study of a wide range of ancient and modern Yoga styles.
Chiara dedicates herself to her passions: traveling, outdoor sports and teaching Yoga and is used to teach in different languages. She aims of integrating Yoga in the everyday life, bringing the positive effects of this ancient philosophy even to the working environment.
She draws on many styles of Yoga, since she believes that each style deepens our understanding to the yogic path. She tunes into the unique needs of each student, whether it is building strength and flexibility or becoming more self-aware during the personal practice. She likes to show her students that yoga offers opportunities to discover the vitality of their body and their inner strengths, especially in the stressful everyday life.
