About Carla Zürcher (UK/ZW/CH)

Carla Zürcher otherwise known as Yogini Kamadevi was born in England, her father being Swiss and mother British-Zimbabwe. Her parent’s separation and her father’s work with the United Nations permitted her to travel and hence develop her passions in the fields of Yoga and Art. She began Yoga classes at 15 years old, following workshops held by the Sri Sri Ravi Shankar foundation with training in the Kriya Yoga system accompanied with the practice of silence to go deeper into states of personal reflection. 

She has taken part in studies and workshops in pranayama techniques, the 8 limbs of Yoga, Ayurveda and Tantric philosophy, Kundalini Yoga and dynamic breathing with authentic and traditional masters. These experiences have supported her deepened understanding of consciousness, mindfulness and how these practices are a key to heightening inner contentment. Through this Yogic journey she has been able to discover her own methods of teaching and transmitting the way of Yoga and holistic living. This has been enhanced, by being a certified Reiki practitioner, along with completing on numerous occasions the Vipassana ten-day silent mediation, created by Dr. Goinka.

When in Varanasi, known as one of the holiest cities in India and internationally reputed for its University of Sanskrit, Carla met Parmatma Oshi Guru Devi. Being received by Oshi Guru Devi as a Spiritual Mother, Carla was initiated as Kamadevi. This pinnacle brought a turning point in Kamadevi’s Yogic growth and she continues to meet with her Spiritual Mother pursuing time for contemplation and the transmission of Yoga.
