Hi, my name is Yoko I was born in 1971 in Geneva, Switzerland. I speak French and English fluently and I have a passion for Indian culture and spirituality. I started my yoga journey in 1998 when I visited India for the first time and discovered the transformative power of this ancient practice. Since then, I have returned to India many times to deepen my knowledge and experience of different types of yoga, from traditional to more modern ones.

In 2014, I became a certified yoga teacher after completing an intense training program at Kranti Yoga School in Goa, India. There, I got to explore different yoga styles like Ashtanga primary series, Vinyasa flow, meditation, Pranayama, and Kriyas.

As a committed and dedicated yoga practitioner, I chose to stay on as an assistant teacher at Kranti Yoga School for over 6 months. This experience was incredibly valuable, allowing me to refine my teaching techniques and gain a deeper understanding of Yoga.

People are often fascinated by how different my career roles have been.

From working as an assistant nurse at the hospital emergency department and also to be an Aerial performer.

As an assistant nurse,  I have to go through complex situations where I need to stay calm, focused, and mentally balanced in a very stressful environment.

As professional aerialists, my partner and I often perform at extreme heights and our only security is to maintain the perfection of our aerial moves without making a single mistake. 

yoga has been the perfect complement to balance my mind and physical condition helping me to improve my professional ability in both careers.

This is why I love yoga.

 

To me, yoga is so much more than just a physical workout. It's a powerful tool for mastering both the body and the mind, helping us find balance within ourselves and achieve our full potential in every aspect of life.

With each yoga session, we have the opportunity to cultivate inner peace and harmony. As a dedicated yogi, I bring years of practice and learning to every class, aiming to help others unlock their own health potential and tap into the transformative power of yoga.

In 2015, I fulfilled a dream and opened Yoga Land, my own yoga center in south Goa, India.

At Yoga Land, we offer a range of yoga experiences, including yoga holidays, retreats, and drop-in classes.

 

From November to May, our team of international teachers welcomes students from all corners of the globe, coming together to create a truly unique and inspiring space.

In 2019, I was thrilled to bring together two of my greatest passions: yoga and aerial performance. That's when I became a certified aerial yoga teacher, opening up an exciting new dimension.

 

Using a special hammock, I help students to deepen their practice and take their skills to new heights. It's a unique and exhilarating way to experience the many benefits of yoga, from increased strength and flexibility to improved balance and mindfulness.
