If any person can be described as a «born leader» or a «rock of leadership,» it is definitely Andy. His natural calm demeanor is as exemplary as it is infectious.
A look back at his youth shows that he can also do things differently: "Higher, faster, better" was the maxim that drove him to top sporting achievements in ice hockey and snowboarding and also later took him to the top in the communications industry. A creative director, who has won numerous awards, Andy found his balance to his stressful professional life in sports or in the quiet of his beloved mountains. That was, until he discovered something new with yoga.
Andy attended his first yoga teacher training with the goal of learning more about the history and philosophy of yoga and cultivating his own practice. In doing so, his curiosity was piqued even more, so more trainings quickly followed. For Andy, yoga is not limited to one particular style or direction. A certified Master of Yoga and Yin Yoga teacher, Andy is always discovering new techniques and elements and creatively integrating them into his classes.
No matter how challenging his classes are - they are characterized by calmness and mindfulness. He is responsive to his students, helping them understand and experience the poses in depth. His meditative voice helps them forget the stressful daily routine and rediscover their own center.
«Life is the best teacher. Just listen and learn.»

Riga. Stockholm. Amsterdam. Barcelona. Zurich. Born in Latvia, Alina has passed through many different stages in her life. Today she lives in Zurich, speaks seven different languages and writes whenever she can.
Alina found yoga early in life, as a subconscious attraction to something she could not explain. Her natural drive for knowledge was awakened and slowly but surely she immersed herself in the world of yoga and Ayurveda She might not have kept her sadhana (practice) regularly in the beginning, but she always came back to it until finally arriving to the point, where she couldn’t live without practising daily.
«Through constant practice (Abhyāsa) and the ability to let go (Vairāgya), our mind can experience the state of yoga.»
As a means of sharing what she has learnt with others, it was only a matter of time before she signed up for her first yoga teacher training - only to start the next training immediately
Alina strongly believes that yoga is much more than just asanas. Therefore she always starts her Hatha Vinyasa class with a short, philosophical talk on various yoga related topics, which she interweaves throughout her yoga class. Combined with her unique humor, exciting Hindu myths, exact cues and precise assistance, Alina not only provides a class which is physically satisfying but also one in which the body is completely relaxed and the mind is inspired.
Alina teaches her classes in English.
