  • Amanda Larson-Mekler

    Amanda accidentally stumbled upon a beach yoga class in Hawaii ten years ago and has been hooked ever since. Yoga for her started as simply a way to work out, but has since become a way to practice mindfulness both on and off the mat. Her teaching has also evolved since she was first certified in 2009. She now teaches vinyasa, hatha, and restorative yoga and often brings meditation and chanting into the practice. Amanda's favorite part of teaching is working with new yoga teachers to deepen their own practice and help them find an authentic voice.

  • Kathrin

    Kathrin grew up in the beautiful Austrian countryside, which laid the foundation for her strong connection to mother nature. Having experimented with different nutritional systems for more than 10 years, she came in touch with Ayurveda during her first trip to India in 2007. This very individualized approach of Ayurveda deeply resonated with Kathrin and she decided to return to India to study the art of Ayurveda right where it’s coming from. For the past 7 years Kathrin has been living mostly in India and Nepal where she has deepened her knowledge in Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation & Energy work.

  • Zooni

    Zooni wears many hats and is a curious spirit. She has always been involved in cooking, hosting guests and sharing food and conversation were an essential part of the family life. She became serious about yoga some six years ago, something to remind her of her child gym and dance steps and was hooked right away. She walked in to Sivananda Ashram in 2014 without expectation and with an open heart and became a yoga teacher. She followed her own try self and kept travelling teaching yoga. She is now sharing the light with other and combining both her hospitality and spiritual skills.

  • Sylvie
