Aurelia Iten
Aurelia Iten

Aurelia teaches a powerful and flowing yoga in which the whole body becomes an experience of breathing and connection between the inner and outer worlds. This can be done through strong dynamic movements but also through movements towards stillness and meditation. Understanding the senses by working with them in the yoga practice reveals almost forgotten spaces and expands our natural capacity to understand ourself and others. This enables students to arrive home and again reside comfortably within their own bodies. 
Behind all of Aurelia’s studies and interests lies this desire to see how people and things communicate and make connection. She experiences this through observation and working with color and form, sound and silence - through play and through stillness. In her engagement as a social worker, designer and now as a yoga student and teacher, she is constantly exploring these themes and learning more and more.
Aurelia initially discovered her love of yoga through dance training. She completed her 200-hour teacher training in Prana Vinyasa Flow with Christine May in Munich in 2015.

Aurelia teaches in English and German.

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

Susanna Lorenzini
Susanna Lorenzini

Susanna worked in the health and travel business, before she discovered Astanga Vinyasa Yoga in Fuerteventura in 1997. She proceeded to take a two months intensive teacher training with Nancy Gilgoff in Maui. In the period of 1999 to 2005, she was teaching yoga with Bruno Dietziker in Zurich. She continued her studies with Lino Miele, Luisa Sears, Sharon Gannon, David Life, Stephen Thomas, and Katchie Ananda and by attending various workshops and teacher trainings. In 2007 Susanna completed her 3-year training in yoga therapy with Remo Rittiner in Zurich. This was then followed by some additional training with Doug Keller. 
It is with great care that Susanna includes her therapeutic approach into all of her classes. Yoga therapy is a holistic approach, integrating body, breath and mind to recover a state of equilibrium. Its emphasis lies on personal and individual assistance for persons with chronic pain or ailments (such as back, shoulder or neck pain, asthma and the like). Since 2007, Susanna has been a member of IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) and of the Swiss Yoga Association Health Insurance. She teaches her classes in German; her private lessons also in English.

Kimi Fiebig
Kimi Fiebig

Kimi completed a four-year dance training at the Zurich Dance Theater School with a subsequent specialization of Musical Studies in Hamburg. In the meantime she has been performing on stage as a career dancer and choreographer for more than 15 years. 10 years ago Kimi came across yoga while searching for a supplement to her daily dance training. She quickly came to realize that Yoga is not just about physical postures on the mat, but also challenges and aids the entire body and mind. Through regular practice she found a balance to her fast-paced career.
In 2007 Kimi successfully completed the Yoga Alliance 200-hour Teacher Training and in 2013 the 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training at AIRYOGA. These were followed by three Anusara Immersions, a Teacher Training by Katchie Ananda, a module with Shiva Rea and the intensive teacher training with Max Strom. By attending workshops in Switzerland and Germany, she became acquainted with different styles of yoga. Kimi teaches in a dynamic style, which embraces aspects of Vinyasa Yoga. Alongside the wisdom and teachings of Yoga for health, healing and bodily well-being, is the emphasis of a conscious and deep breath. Kimi teaches in German and English by request.
