Urs was a late starter, at 48, and only came to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga because of the dedication and transformation he witnessed in Doris who had been practising for many years.
He enjoys the synchronicity of breath and movement in the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice; the combination of physicality, spirituality, and meditation; challenging and rewarding at the same time.
His main teachers are Doris and Lucy & John Scott. Urs has been fortunate to deepen his knowledge and experience by working with Manju Jois, David Kiel, Jude Hynes, Lucy & John Scott, Katie Lane, Ganesh Mohan, Swami Samnyasananda, Simon Borg-Olivier as well as Prem & Radha.
Urs has experienced first hand the many benefits a regular practice has had on his stiff and injury riddled body, on his busy mind, on his well-being in general, as well as the changes it brought forth in his everyday life.
It is his desire to introduce beginners to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice and to enable them to start experiencing the many benefits of this beautiful practice.
He also helps long time practitioners with fine-tuning and adapting their practice and their breath to their own body, mind and lifestyle. He also assists Doris in some of her classes.
In 2011 Urs began his studies of Krishnamacharya Yoga Therapy with Ganesh Mohan, the son of Mohan, and now offers personalised therapeutic yoga sessions involving exercises and breath work.
