Well Being & Yoga Studio Founder (Laos, Burkina Faso) 
  
In the beginning there was Healing Mudras, a Healing Studio in Laos  with activities offered to an ever growing community: Hatha Yoga, Asthanga Vinyasa Yoga, Yin Yoga, Reiki treatments and Certified Courses ( Levels I, II, III, and Master Teacher) , Dance Therapy, various workshops on Conscious Living, Healthy Nutrition, Ayurveda, Buddhism, Arts and Crafts, Qi Gong. A first set of  Natural Cosmetic Line and products was designed too.

Then came an expanded version of Healing Mudras. A social initiative established out of the comfort zone, in one of poorest countries of  West Africa. Ubuntu Yoga & Well Being Studio was built entirely from scratch in West Africa: Burkina Faso. Ubuntu was the seed of social enterprise offering Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, and Yoga 4 Kids,  Holistic therapies ( Reiki, Shiatsu), Martial Arts ( Viet Vo Dao),  training crafts people to Fair Trade and Eco-Sustainable products, a product label East Meets West/Made with Passion in Burkina Faso, a natural cosmetic line, an outlet for crafts products and a lounge cafe as well a hub for the sale of organic farmers produce. Eventually the idea was to expand over to offering Yoga to Vulnerable Youth group. The sudden passing of her young daughter, interrupted the project to its core and further inspired Isabella to embark on a yogi journey and help others to help themselves.

Detailed Profile 

Life Coaching ( NYC - Empowerment Institute Model)
Exploring personal growth inside out through personal story-telling as a way to connect with our most inner desires, dreams and vision and craft them out to freshen up the genius that lies at the core of our being. Life coaching is a personalised life-charting journey which involves reviewing lifestyle choices, reframing positive thinking, dusting out behavioural blockages and integrating vision with personal goals to experience and live fully with re harmonised body, mind, emotions and desires. The holistic approach of Life Coaching has guided me to use the term Lifestyle Coaching rather than Life Coaching expressing the interconnection of all realms of life. 

Yoga-Coaching 
Yoga is a practice that takes you on a journey beyond the mere morphology of the body. It first and foremost connects you with your own personal bio-energy. It then puts on a chart to explore your own body and mind essence and eventually connects you with the whole. Isabella is a Yoga Alliance RYT 500hrs (Rishikesh Yog Peeth, India). She is an experienced teacher integrating lines of teaching with great wisdom. Private or group classes will take you on this journey with subtle yet firm intention to guide you to un-lock your own potential and release somatic blockages with breathing exercises and gentle body movements after careful mapping of your needs. The ratio of yoga and coaching for each session depends exclusively on your own issue (i.e. personal goals, self esteem, emotions, relationships, health)



Coaching Yoga Teachers

Yoga in its purest form is a self-discovery path. Yet there are approximately half a million Yoga teachers registered at the Yoga Alliance USA only.  Our approach is simple: teaching Yoga requires additional skills than just being good at yoga asana practice and having knowledge of yoga philosophy. In offering coaching sessions to yoga teachers we design together a pattern of bringing out the best version of the teacher. We consider the practice of teaching yoga a pure practice itself requirying skills, competence and sensitivity and rapport building. We have the tools and we are committed to help you become the best version of yourself. We have studied with Adrian Cox, Founder of Yoga Elements Studio in Bangkok Thailand.

She offers, Yin Yoga, Traditional Hatha Yoga classes with a nice blend of both into each of them. She offers 2 and 3 hrs workshops, comprising of Pranayama, Hatha, Yin and Yoga Nidra.(see Yoga for an example)

 Yoga 4 Kids
The initiation of children to yoga is a guarantee for fostering calmness, focus, discipline to future adults. Parents usually confirm these benefits quite immediately. With light and fun techniques Isabella succeeds to bring playfullness to yoga sessions for children of ages between 5 and 11 yrs of age. (see Yoga for details)
