Yoga Flame Teachers


“Yoga is for me a union of practices beyond the mat which balances my life and my emotions… What I transmit in class is simple, creative, powerful but always anchored in tradition.
Passionate about Hindu philosophy, anatomy, free and functional movement, I continue to educate myself as much as possible in order to infuse my classes with a spark of modernity while keeping these classical roots.”


“I used to be very anxious and painfully shy growing up. My mom took me to a Hatha yoga class when I was in high school. It felt like I was coming home to something authentic and could take a deep breath. It helped me manage my inner world and feel more at ease with my surroundings. I teach Rocket Yoga and Vinyasa Flows. They aren’t always easy classes, but they are open to be creative and playful, which feels refreshing in adulthood. Peace within yourself and the world around you is the greatest position of power.”


“The Hot Yoga I discovered in Asia helped me understand and find a way through all the challenges commonly found in a Yoga practice: improving flexibility, concentration, and listening to my body. This practice has become a ritual for me and it is my pleasure to share it with you here in Lausanne.”


“After having trained at the foot of the Himalayas in India with a first 200h in Hatha, I have not stopped since then to follow new trainings in order to make my teaching evolve and to remain an eternal student of Yoga. This led me to follow a second 200h in Vinyasa in Paris, then a 50h in Yin Yoga and finally a 100h in depth in Vinyasa, animal flow & rocket yoga. For me, yoga is a sport practice that allows to reach

“Falling from a posture is human, getting back at it is Yogi”. I discovered Bikram Yoga in a moment of my life where I needed to know and love myself. The whole philosophy of yoga and more specifically hot yoga got me totally transformed. I learned how to feel my body and connect with my true self. Yoga is happiness and with an open mind and open heart I wish anyone to trust the process and follow this never ending journey of love and harmony !”


“I began Yoga in my teens and discovered Pilates soon after. I fell in love with the way our breath stimulates our bodies into finding strength and balance. I rapidly saw how my body and mind transformed and how energised I felt as I developed my practice further. I teach and experiment with various movement methods and my passion is to share this wonderful feeling of self awareness, fulfillment and enjoyment with others.”


“Dancing and boxing have always been part of my life until I discovered yoga in Brazil back in 2013. From there I started practicing yoga which soon became a real passion. Ending up in San Diego, after traveling around the world for 2 years, my heart yearned for more yoga. It has surpassed just a form of exercise for me, it has become a way of life, not only consisting of feeding her mind and soul, accepting changes, and finding the best version of myself in order to help others, but most of all being able to offer genuine smiles and happiness to everyone who crosses my path.”


“Over the last decade I have travelled across the globe teaching classes, workshops and retreats in Bikram, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Yin as well as Calisthenics (bodyweight training) and Animal Flow. My passion for a broad range of movement comes from a real belief in the benefits not only physically but mentally and how these two elements are continually enhanced through the practice of movement and breath work.”


“I discovered yoga after more than 20 years of practicing ballet and modern dance and several years teaching it. Yoga filled the void that ballet left behind. At the beginning, I was attracted by the fast-paced, dynamic and creative practice of Vinyasa, and only later I realised the benefits of breathing ad meditation on my body and mind and the discipline required for Ashtanga. I’ve always been fascinated by movement in any shape and form, from pilates to functional training and I’ve always practiced several sports. I love learning and growing and sharing my passion and what I’ve learned with others.”


“I got in touch with yoga as a child. Over the past 3 decades I had the good fortune to study extensively with some of the world’s most respected yoga masters in traditional 1 on 1 guru-student setting.

After years of exploring many different lineages, these 4 yoga styles define my teaching: Iyengar, for its alignment techniques, Asthanga for the sequencing method,

“I discovered Ashtanga while recovering from a watersports injury in 2009. I quickly found that Yoga led me to the balance, strength and flexibility I needed and began a regular Bikram practice. Later, through Fierce Grace®, I found the teacher training that fitted my personal preferences: Combining Ashtanga, Power and Bikram yoga.”


“To me, yoga has brought about self-discovery, transformation and courage to face the unknowns. I am fascinated and constantly learning about the mind, body, spirit connection and how yoga not only sparks our connection to ourselves, but also with others.”


“When it comes to teaching, practically only by my voice you will be guided, yet also with my heart, that I pour into every class. Learn to turn your attention in with clear vocals cues, which helps focusing the gaze. Every breath is counted so you can synchronise it with movement. At times, I will invite you to find a deeper expression of the pose by adjusting you with my hands.

“I first wandered into a Bikram studio in Chicago completely by accident, but it was love at first class after the instructor persuaded me to stay. Daily practice soon became my path to physical, emotional and mental transformation. Yoga truly is for everyone, and I welcome all opportunities to attest to its healing power.”


“I love practicing yoga, and teaching it, because of the wonderful physical and mental benefits I experience with every single class. For me that means healthier spine, knees, and hips, and a calmer and happier mind! There is something for everyone in yoga, and I love learning about the benefits of the postures and sharing them with my students.”


“My passion for yoga goes back many years. After the birth of my son, it was strengthened further by my regular morning practice. As a working mom, I found those quiet moments essential to help me handle daily stress. I resolved to become a certified yoga teacher and completed my training in 2016. Deeply involved in Hot Yoga, I continued my education as a teacher with Jimmy Barkan in Florida, in the fall of 2018.

“I have been mesmerized by the forever depth of the Yoga teachings I keep on discovering. Yoga brings immense warmth and a sense of rooting in my entire being. I fell in love with Yoga in 2003, and started teaching Yoga since 2009. I love facilitating Hatha Yoga Flow & Yin Yoga classes. Truly passionate about the (inner) explorations of our human nature, I love nurturing the yoga values around care – caring for each other as well as self-care. I try to embody those values in my daily life as a public health professional in low income countries as well as in my yoga classes as a Yoga teacher.”


“Since I was a child, I have always enjoyed various kinds of sports and at the beginning yoga was just the next physical challenge. I began practicing yoga 14 years ago, primarily Ashtanga. I find that yoga not only makes me stronger physically and mentally but helps me be more focused and balances the different aspects of my busy life. Above all, yoga for me is just a joy and I feel truly blessed and honored to be able to share this joy with you. A day with yoga is a happy day.”


Marit began her yoga practice while living in New York and working as an executive in advertising. Originally a method to reduce stress and sweat out the toxins of the city, she fell in love with Hot Yoga. In the summer of 2012, she completed her first training with Jimmy Barkan and today is considered one of his most senior teachers in Europe. She follows his approach that: “Yoga is not about the pose, it’s about the body.” Marit offers hands on adjustments specific to the alignment of the individual. Her classes are challenging, yet healing, and with any luck a lot of fun.


“I started my yoga practice willing to sculpt my body; a ver superficial desire then. Over time, I found my time spent on the mat much more fruitful. Not only did I improve, but I also finally devoted myself to this person within, learning to discover myself through the development of more determination, self-acceptance, trust and humility. That’s what pushed me to become a Hot Yoga teacher in 2016 and then expand my knowledge to the practices of Flow and Yin. Read More


“My journey in mindful movement started in 2006, when I received my first certification in the pilates method. I then re-certified with Power Pilates in 2007, travelled and studied extensively to learn from master teachers in the US and operated a fully-equipped studio for 12 years.
A few years ago, I discovered yoga and… I was hooked! I took my yoga journey further by certifying in The Barkan Method of Hot Yoga (200h), The Barkan Method Hot Vinyasa (300h) and Read More


“I was lucky enough to discover early on that feel-good energy that comes from moving my body. Allowing myself to experience various sports, discovering fitness, ballet, dance and yoga throughout my life, I’ve found my passion in sharing those moments of excitement, pushing ourselves out of comfort zone, realizing our potential and having fun in the process. My class is a combination of everything I’ve learned, and I continue to explore what our amazing bodies can do for us – not forgetting to bring in some awesome tunes to keep you motivated and working harder.”


“In my teaching practice I present the original way of doing Yoga how it was introduced to my teacher by Krishnamacharya, following the tradition, adapting the practice to the individual, and doing whatever is reasonable and beneficial to the student. My aim as a teacher is to supply Ashtanga Yoga practitioners with the guidance they need to practice this discipline effectively and safely.”


“I’m a Vinyasa Yoga teacher and forever yoga student. I’m also a mother, partner, UI design student, and all-round curious human.

Movement and flow have always been an integral part of my life. I believe in the power of movement, and that movement ripples into more movement, radiating physically and mentally. And the way I see it – the Asana yoga practice offers us a constant opportunity to explore it from within, on and then off the mat.

“I see Yoga as a set of disciplines that can benefit us all and be adopted by anyone. It is a fascinating world which echoes universally, and one which I enjoy sharing with my students. I really like the energy that revolves around the yoga community.”


“Passionate about movement, I discovered Pilates after several injuries during my dance career. A perfect balance between body and mind. Exceeding our limits by simply listening to our body. Self-control in harmony with breathing to become stronger physically and mentally. An inevitable transformation becomes a real revelation. A learning for life!”


“I discovered yoga while recovering from knee injury in 2008. It’s been a beautiful journey to discover that yoga not only helped me to strength the muscles to protect the knee, but the regular practice also became a new foundation to trust myself more, shift the perspective and with time let go of what didn’t serve me anymore. My intention is to share the Read More


“It’s in the Scandinavian cold that I first discovered Bikram yoga, and have been addicted ever since! I have been practicing Power and Vinyasa yoga for more than 10 years, however it was my discovery of Hot Yoga 6 years ago that has been a complete revelation! My biggest motivation is to share the energy that this practice brings and to ensure that everyone can realise its benefits, both mental and physical.”


“Pay attention to your Ujjayi breath, to the engagement of the bandhas and to your drishti (gaze).

Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga requires concentration, patience and rigor. In tune with ourselves, we achieve a more structured, fulfilling life.

Trained in Power Yoga, I finally discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga with Delara Tiv. For several years, I have been practicing daily and sharing what I have learned in my teachings.“


“I walked into a Bikram yoga studio on a beautiful summer day in 2008, my first yoga class ever.
I was hooked immediately, yes, it was life changing and inspiring me to take Bikram’s Teacher’s Training, but not only that, trying and immersing in other yoga practices, ashtanga vinyasa and yin yoga teacher trainings were the next steps on the way.
Till this very day, teaching and continuing to learn about myself through the practice is fundamental part of my life.
Come, let’s meet in the yoga room, Namaste!”


”Sport has always been a part of my life. After my professional volleyball career ended, I discovered Pilates and Yoga at Yoga Flame where I started my daily practice from then on.

What I enjoy the most is each practice makes me feel more empowered on and off the mat. I love to share my energy with you through my class, where we can grow and strengthen our mind and body together.”
