We’re more than a bunch of yoga teachers. We’re a community of like-minded people, using our passion and our skills to make a difference.
Hi, I am Solveig, the founder of English Yoga Meetup. I had my first yoga class in Zurich about 10 years ago and it was a desaster. I took a break for 6 years from the mat. During my travels in Asia in 2015 I slowly got into yoga by doing yoga at beautiful places outside. In 2017, I have done a sabbatical in Australia and did my 200 hrs teacher training in Byron Bay. I have worked in a retreat in Sydney, did some karma yoga in Adelaide and set up Frankfurt English Yoga Meetup back in my hometown after my return. I have attended further trainings in fascial yoga to learn more about how to deal naturally with chronic tensions. English Yoga Meetup is my side passion project and balance next to my corporate job in marketing. Since August 2019 English Yoga Meetup is also available in Munich.
I see my yoga style as a flowy path of exploring the connection between the heart, mind and body, I love to explore the feeling of stillness in challenging positions and the energy in stillness. I try to combine creative sequencing with a spirit of playfulness and a dose of stillness. My hope is that you step off the mat feeling calm, energised and balanced.
My class is a fun yet challenging practice to help students build strength and confidence. Alignment and breath are big focuses in my classes, as well as variations. My biggest joy is seeing students uncover their hidden potential. As a dancer, I like to keep my sequences “flowing”, and I love to add some “spice” to them – so you will never get bored!
I hope the class will lead you down the path to self-acceptance and personal awareness, whenever you are in you practice.
