  • Jason Revere

    Jason Revere

    Jason has been on the yoga path for 25 years now. His interest started with meditation when he was a teenager which led him to his own self created yoga practice at home. Not happy with what he found in books he decided to go to India and study at the source. He lived on an ashram in the south of India and there the real inward journey began. Knowing that not everyone is on a spiritual path, but everyone can benefit from yoga, he decided to create a space where yoga is made accessible for everyone. No dogma, just yoga. We are all free to find what we need from yoga whether its relief from stress or pain or just a way to ease the mind. Jason also offers Personal Yoga Coaching. If you want to go further, all you need to do is ask. Otherwise, just enjoy the mat.

  • Merdan Akbayir

    Merdan Akbayir

    For Merdan, yoga is like a best friend, always there by his side, helping him to stay centered and healthy, giving him support, strength and the knowledge that all is already there. That he is enough. As a former biologist and current choreographer and masseur, in yoga it all comes together for him: working with the body and learning through direct experience about oneself. He feels inspired to share his passion for yoga with you on your journey toward well-being. With a focus on breath and alignment, you can expect a blend of dynamic postures with a more intense flow and steady postures, taking time to sink in. The whole practice becomes a meditation in movement, ending in the final relaxation posture, where you can let go completely.

Initially, yoga was only a physical workout, however, soon she started to realize that it gave her so much more than that: a quiet mind and more contentment in her life. She soon fell in love with Ashtanga and went on to complete a Vinyasa teacher training. Being so happy to share this beautiful practice with others, makes every class she teaches a gift to herself. During her classes, she aims to pass on to her students what she receives from her personal yoga practice: a quiet and peaceful state of mind. She aims to create a warm atmosphere during her class, supported by relaxing music. Once in a while, she shares some anecdotes about her practice but most importantly, she tries to give the students as much personal attention as they need.

  • Lotte Post

    Lotte Post

    Lotte started practicing yoga in 2003 with one of her aunts and straight away felt that it was something for her to explore more in depth. It was very confrontational, difficult, deep and yet beautiful at the same time. She practiced with her for a few years and then started to look elsewhere to expand her knowledge. She went on to do several teacher training courses in many styles of yoga and yoga therapy. Yoga brings so much to her life, it calms her down and helps her to become more aware of her full potential more and more. It also enhances her connection between body, mind, and spirit in an open and explorative way. She wants to let other people experience this too while helping them to be more in sync with themselves.
