There are some changes for this, first of all, a lovely studio has offered us to use it for free and there are mats, so you don't need to bring a mat! the place is much more suitable in other ways too. I am super grateful to Christine Bisang, the owner!

The studio website is: Christine Bisang is surely an amazing yoga teacher and taught a public yoga class about five months ago at an event in Orell Fussli The Bookshop in Bahnhofstrasse, the class was sold out well in advance! Please note that for this particular meetup it will be me who will teach the class! my own website is

It will be on three sessions, on Fridays evenings, sorry I had to change the day but the studio is busy the other days!! I recommend yoga on Friday evenings, it is nice also if you go out later! If you work on Fridays consider the suggestion that Yoga will ground you after work and it is a very good transition for the weekend.

The yoga classes will be gentle and merry, I will use nice music! we will have fun, even if you are a beginner... because yoga is NOT about suffering or stretching to the maximum ;-). Although yoga is surely spiritual it does not have to be a purely serious practice, let alone competitive.

Language: English!

What to bring: an empty stomach (or almost empty).

Donation: 30 CHF in cash per session to be donated entirely.

About the charities: This is a charity that works with children in Haiti. The website is in Italian, a video is in English! This institution has been founded and run by a friend who will be in the yoga class.

A new change, I have found this institution run by Dr Ating in Sulawesi, Indonesia. I know this doctor in person, he cured me and my children in Indonesia, he is a rarity of a person... truly generous and knowledgeable. He has been in the tropics of Indonesia for decades and has started a foundation to maintain one of the national parks (amazing, look at the photos in the link below)... with work like his the biodiversity has a much bigger chance of surviving the operations usually done in Indonesia (example is Sumatra where the forest has been cut down extensively, leaving only bits here and there). Sorry I am not more scientific offering statistics etc but please see yourself...

Please take part, share, explore yourself through yoga, have fun and support these causes!

I look forward to meeting you!
