Simone’s journey has led her from the mountains of Switzerland to the free and open lifestyles of tropical Asia and the plant medicines of South America, all of which informs her work as the director of the School of Sacred Arts. Feeling most inspired by time in nature and conscious community, she brings their essence into her yoga practice and teaching, holding space for her students with a gentle poise and grace in teacher trainings, workshops and retreats around the world.
She was raised and educated in Switzerland, later graduating with a degree in social work in her home country of Canada. After years of serving as a counselor specializing in women’s issues, Simone began her yogic journey with a Yoga Arts training in Australia. Initially inspired by Ashtanga, she moved on to study Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, and yoga therapy while teaching throughout the greater Asian realm.
Upon establishing residency in Indonesia, she founded SOSA and has been leading yoga teacher trainings, retreats and workshops in Japan, Bali, Thailand, Peru and Switzerland. Her new home is nestled between the sweet town of Nelson, BC and the raw Canadian wilderness.
The School of Sacred Arts is a Yoga Alliance registered yoga school offering Yoga teacher trainings, retreats and workshops throughout the world.
Dedicated to individual growth and the global flowering of consciousness, committed to presenting events and teachers of the highest caliber in superb settings, the School of Sacred Arts was formed to share, teach, inspire, and serve.
