yoga in Lausanne
why practicing yoga?
Through yoga, movement and meditation we can meet ourselves with kind attention and loving awareness, releasing the habit to do more and be different. We can gradually feel at home in our bodies, connect our body/heart/mind with acceptance and gratitude and be fully ourselves. Whats feels ok and safe to be felt in our practice, our life laboratory, the sacred space of our mat, we can then experiment in the ocean of life.
who are my yoga classes for?
My yoga classes in Lausanne are accessible to everyone, especially to people who want a gentle yoga practice, not too athletic. If you are not very fit, if you lack mobility, if you are stressed, if you have had a depression, a burn out, if you have been advised to do yoga: give it a try and take a yoga class with me.
In the group yoga classes I offer variations to accommodate all bodies, so that everyone is comfortable. Private yoga classes allow me to offer you a completely personalized practice.
My students range in age from 20 to 65. Beginners are welcome
private yoga classes in Lausanne
For a personalized practice and a fast progression, I offer private yoga classes built according to your desires and your specific needs:
- getting back to a physical practice after a physical or emotional injury,
- setting up a routine of well-being and self-care,
- having a moment of exercise and relaxation with a yoga teacher just for you,
- the impossibility of taking a yoga class in Lausanne in a group
- practicing with your partner, a friend at home
I build a sequence with the tools of yoga: flow yoga, yin yoga, free somatic movement, meditation, breathing and visualization techniques. Yoga can also be practiced on a chair if your mobility is an issue. I can also offer you a deep relaxation with the experience of a sound bath with crystal singing bowls.
yoga in the park in Lausanne
Yoga classes in the Parc de l’Elysée in Lausanne will start again on May 2nd 2022. I am looking forward to meeting you (again) and practice in open air until September. Come and relax after work and practice yoga in the coolness of the park, out of sight, and with a beautiful view of the lake.
My yoga classes are for all level. I offer variations to accommodate all bodies, so that everyone is comfortable My students range in age from 20 to 65. Beginners are welcome to join my yoga classes.
Because yoga and meditation should be accessible to all, there’s a scale of prices and you are asked to choose yours consciously.
You can also find me at the studio l’Equilibre in Lausanne for a gentle flow yoga class on Thursdays. And also on weekends for a long flow and yin yoga class.
I have been practicing since 2006 and I am a certified yoga teacher since January 2018. I completed around 400h of training and I have given more than 400 hours of courses since then.
I took my first yoga class to relax after stressful work days. The regular practice of yoga and meditation allowed me to overcome chronic anxiety, to recover quickly from a burn out, to have less back pain. I am very sensitive to the accessible approach of yoga: a practice adapted to everyone, whatever their age, physical, mental or emotional state.
I love to share my passion for yoga here in Lausanne and guide you with kindness in your practice. I allow you to experience physical, mental and emotional relaxation.

sound bath with cristal bowls
I offer sound baths in Lausanne where I play crystal singing bowls and other instruments. The sound bath lasts about 40 minutes and includes a meditation. I offer to play for you at my home for a very small fee, in a the yoga studio, or at your place in Lausanne area.
Sound is a vibratory energy that takes the form of waves. We all vibrate at our own frequency. The universe also has its own frequency. When played, the crystal singing bowls and Tibetan bowls produce a sound wave that will pass through the body and vibrate all the organs down to the cellular level. You will feel a sense of calm, well-being and harmony because the sound waves eliminate physical, mental and emotional blockages and raise our vibratory frequency.

Nadine is just amazing. I took 5 individual sessions and will continue practicing in group classes. I came to reconnect with my body and embodied yoga flow was a perfect fit. These are not just yoga classes. They are complete relaxation/guided meditation/yoga sessions where Nadine took me on a real journey. Each session is completely different and we co-construct them together in a specific way, according to the feelings of the previous sessions and according to the needs of the moment. Each time I leave the session feeling calm and good about myself. I came with the idea of getting a routine/protocol like clockwork and Nadine accompanied me towards a free and intuitive practice that I can recreate at home. Beyond being a very good yoga teacher, she is an incredibly generous human being and a precious listener.

Very nice encounter with Nadine, a smiling person with a lot of sensitivity with an approach of yoga completely adapted to us. Progression is really done at our rhythm and the difficulty of the postures is always depends on how we feel at every session. Her very free approach of flow yoga without dogmatism suits us perfectly. She is not afraid to show her hesitations and reflections on the postures she wants to practice and this makes us all the more free with her. I recommend her warmly and without reservation, especially as her fees are very reasonable.
Nadine is incredibly gentle and empathetic. She listens to you and adapts the practice to your needs and your level. She also adapts to your mood of the day and her flexibility is appreciated. Thank you Nadine

I had the privilege of taking 5 private classes with Nadine who was a remarkable yoga teacher because of her professionalism, her empathy and her great flexibility according to our state (of mind) during each class. Her teaching of yoga is also wonderful in its lightness, grace and joy while working the body and mind in depth. I highly recommend Nadine to anyone who wants to start yoga or simply continue their practice and learning.

Trauma-informed yoga sessions are held in small groups, among women, in a gentle and caring environment. We move gently, slowly, at our own pace and according to our possibilities. We take the time to breathe properly, something we often forget in our daily lives. Nadine is adorable, very soft and really nice.
