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. I have also attended a 50hrs training at Inside Yoga Frankfurt to teach Inside Yoga Flow, which is yoga on a beat. English Yoga Meetup is my side passion project and balance next to my corporate job. I love the wonderful community we have created at Frankfurt and Munich and still feel inspired and passionate every time I jump on the mat!
Hi, I’m Doreen and I’m a certified and passionate yoga teacher. I started practicing yoga in 2013 when I did my Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India. Yep, I hadn’t been practicing before. I actually just wanted to go to India in 2013 - and I found yoga! I fell in love with it and it has been an integral part of my life ever since. The main focus in my practice is on synchronizing every movement with the breath to really feel into your body and to be present in the present. It is a mixture of traditional Hatha yoga combined with some Vinyasa elements to create a nice little flow and give you a well-rounded combination of work-out and work-in.
Kasheena became a 200 Hr Certified Yoga Instructor in New York City at Circuit of Change Studio. There she developed her skills and knowledge as a Vinyasa teacher, creating dynamic, power sequences to challenge you both mentally and physically. We will work on building strength and cultivating concentration to unify all facets of self: mind, body, and spirit. She strives to give students an enriching experience while fusing it with a playful quality so you leave her class feeling nourished and restored.
Guzel encourages students to adopt growth mindset both on and off the mat. She invites her students to explore the freedom of movement, conscious breath and awaken curiosity about your own physical body and the mind. Guzel's approach is directed not only on building a strong physical practice, but also on learning new things on how your body and mind works, overcoming fear and judgement and ultimately finding the true self. Guzel first started practicing yoga in 2011 to cope with a challenging work in a big bank which helped her to overcome anxiety and stress-induced health problems. Guzel has completed 200 hour RYT qualification with Power Yoga Company in December 2015 with Erin Prichard and never looked back. Yoga practice transformed the way she thinks and the way she sees the world around her.

Lini I Team Munich
Namaste, my name is Lini. My yoga journey began already at a quite young age since my mum is also a yoga teacher. Following that I kind of grew up with yoga and many things around spirituality. But it was only in Cape Town back in 2013 that I started practicing more regularly. Yoga always gave me some tranquility besides the hectic western world, studying and my corporate job. After travelling throughout 2019 (India where I did my 200 hrs YTTC, Sri Lanka and South America) teaching yoga while travelling, I’m now back in Munich and would love to share my love for yoga with you. I hope to see you on the mat.
NICOLE I Team Stuttgart
Hi, I am Nicole, a certified yoga instructor and currently a senior student at the Yoga Therapy Institute in Holland, since my certification
I had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of cyoga students from around the globe. My approach is open and friendly, creating a safe space to practice, to enjoy and find your own flow within the group, through gentle and clear guidance. I believe that the key ingredient for our general well-being is a combination of movement and rest, you will never leave a class without at least a few minutes of deep breathing and relaxation.
