Owner & Founder
It was a lucky coincidence that Deddou stumbled upon a Vinyasa Flow class at Laughing Lotus Yoga Studio in New York City in 2009. It was love at first sight, a feeling of "coming home" so strong, that Deddou decided to complete her first 2 teacher trainings in this vibrant studio in the heart of New York City. Coming from a dancer's background Deddou was intrigued by the creative yoga flow sequences sprinkled with ancient yogi wisdome, the uplifting music, the dynamic and graceful yoga practice. It is exactly this essence that she brought home to Zürich and started sharing through POP UP YOGA.
"I love to fuse dynamic and dance inspired Yoga Flow elements with fundamental principles of therapeutic Vinyasa Krama to create an uplifting experience for a broad spectrum of yoga students." - Deddou, Yoga Teacher & Founder POP UP YOGA
Today Deddou is known as a passionate yoga entrepreneur, as well as a creative and experienced yoga teacher (800h YTT) in the local yoga community.
