As an avid storyteller, philosopher, traveller and mover, Nico has spent much of his life in pursuit of the extra ordinary. From intrepid travels through India, acting stints and a successful yoga studio ownership, Nico has spent much of his life seeking a way to live fully, with more vibrancy, and to embrace this life with each breath, one breath at a time.  

Nico is a 500 hour certified yogi and international trainer who has been teaching yoga since 2003. His love for Eastern philosophy, spirituality and anatomy are all weaved skillfully into his teaching. His style is eclectic, drawing on his study with some of the top teachers in Hatha, Anusara, Vinyasa, Yin and Power Yoga and Pilates.

By bringing to life the ancient teachings of yoga, Nico's goal is to take you on a powerful transformational journey which will have you seeking the answers to your questions and challenging the way you view your life. Inviting you to look inside, to never stop asking the questions and to be brave,to remain open, to take a chance on yourself.

You can find Nico studying at his home in Switzerland or travelling to the corners of the globe sharing his teachings in a humble and honest way. Study with him here at Gaia

As a Doctor I can confirm his excellent knowledge of anatomy and bio mechanics which served to make his teaching of Yoga safe, intelligent and purposeful while still infusing this with traditional yogic principles. history and philosophy which gives great depth to the learning.
I learnt a LOT (some of the Anatomy lecturers at Med School could learn a thing or two from Nico !!!-He is really good!)

Nico is also a gifted communicator, always managing to color his teaching with a great story!

Why do I think this TT is special? Nico has got it sorted in terms of not just WHAT he is teaching but WHY, And that it isn’t about HIM!
He does not teach with ego or as a self serving pursuit, his focus is THE TEACHING.

This current runs like an underground stream throughout the training-the ethos, the boundaries and the integrity are all very apparent. And if you ask me what is the most compelling thing about the course, it is this; as implicitly, it asks the same of us!

Raised by Yogis & trained in India, Crystal is dedicated to her roots. Both in teaching, and her own practice, she focuses on  the old traditions & practices of yoga while bringing an incredible, modern personality to any studio space. Learning from Crystal will give any new teacher an opportunity to learn how to adapt your teaching style to fit both your own personality and the practice that speaks to your soul.

Crystal's study and offerings are mainly focused on the subtle energy body, on the shifts we experience in our emotions and thoughts as we move through the physical practice. She will be working closely with Nico within all the classes and study, however her main teachings will be on the Mythology of yoga, Mantra as it connects to the Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutras. Pranayama, Mudra & Meditation techniques will also be included.

Her classes and teachings are an infusion of Vinyasa, Kundalini and Hatha. Crystals ability to shift from a powerful physical class, into a mantra workshop (while playing her own harmonium), and then into leading a yoga Nidra have made her a well-rounded, sought after teacher from mountain-top to coastal beaches.

Her bubbly personality and infectious laugh will have you stepping out of your comfort zone in a playful way to discover yourself on your mat. She will have you laughing, sweating and feeling energized! Crystal’s passion and heart for living and exploring shine through in everything she does.
