POP UP YOGA Lehrer Team
POP UP YOGA Teacher, since September 2016
Debora’s yoga path started fifteen years ago when she was a student in dire need of relaxation during exam periods. At that time she was looking for something that clears her mind and helps her handle stress better. Debora found that in her yoga practice and discovered that her body holds a true strength within itself that she had not been aware of before practicing yoga.
Yoga has been a part of her life ever since, on and off the mat and so she had developed the idea of passing on this wonderful feeling to others. Since 2016 she completed a 200 hours teacher training and a 50 hours training in Inside Flow at Inside Yoga as well as a 150 hours training in Creative Sequencing at POP UP YOGA.
Debora aims to connect body and mind through flowing yoga movements. She wants to encourage all of her students to find their individual paths and change their lives for the better through yoga.

Roberta only teaches in English
Roberta's yoga path started in 2013. Before that she was doing a variety of sports, such as body bulding and crossfit. Even though lifting weight was a way to relax, Roberta still felt highly stressed and nervous in her day to day life. For years a friend of hers had tried to convince her to try yoga. But she never thought herself to be the "Yoga type", since she assumed it would be too calm for her. Her first yoga class proved her wrong, and she realised that yoga was indeed the one thing she needed.
Thereafter Roberta tried different styles of Yoga and finally fell in love with the Vinyasa Yoga style. For her it is the perfect combination of calming herself while moving her body with awareness. It gives her the chance to let all the mind-chatter go and balance her state of mind through the sound of her breath, the movement and the music. Yoga changed Roberta's life and the completion of the 250h Teacher Training, offered by POP UP YOGA, helped her to get to know herself even better. For her Yoga means freedom - freedom to be herself.

Elvira first read about Yoga as a child, when she found a book in my Mums library.
Ever since Yoga has been a central part of her life. She have been practicing with Richard Freeman, David Swenson and Manju Joice. In 2015 she completed her 200 hours Teacher Training in India and has been teaching Asthanga Yoga ever since. During a trip to the US a few months later she discovered Rocket Yoga, fell in love and decided to do a Rochet Teacher Training in Finland. Today she is one of the only yoga teachers in Switzerland teaching Rocket Yoga.
Elvira’s purpose is to inspire others and awake their passion for yoga. Her classes are grounding but playful, challenging and yet calming. She create a safe space where students can enquire within, connect to their heart and breath, so yoga can happen.

Growing up in a musical family, dance and yoga has been part of Dominique’s life ever since she was a child. But it took some time and a few detours to realise how deeply yoga was rooted within her, which she was lucky enough to find when POP UP YOGA started it’s magic.
During her travels in India she also fell in love with the science of Ayurveda which has become an important part of her life and her studies. Since then she pursues the path of both Ayurveda and Yoga and is deeply fascinated by their impact and their connection. In 2018 she completed her 250 hours Teacher Training at POP UP YOGA, as well as a 50 hour training with Adam Husler in Zurich.
For Dominique Yoga is a constant practice of curiosity, reflection and acceptance. It has helped her to find balance and connection not only to herself, but also to the world around her.
