Is the yoga offering in Zurich more appealing than in other cities?
Zurich is yoga heaven (laughs)! There is something for everyone and at least one studio in every district. With 14 studios, people living in the 4th district have the biggest choice, whereas there’s only one studio in the 10th district. Just so you know, I don’t cover the private classes in my blog. So for example, if someone offers classes at their home, I don’t include them in the guide.
What would you like to achieve with your yoga guide?
I work full time as a project manager at a large bank, so the guide is only a hobby, even if it is a time-consuming one. I often find myself sitting at the computer until late in the evening. I would like to expand the guide and make it more visually appealing and user friendly. The demand is there. I also offer added value: I have only become aware of some studios through personal contacts.
Have you already found your favourite studio?
I’m not giving that one away (laughs). No, on a serious note: of course I have preferences but basically I want to broaden my horizons and become familiar with different yoga styles and classes. That’s how the idea for the guide came about. For me, yoga is a body-conscious method of relaxation, less so a spiritual experience. And I like meeting new people: yogis are usually fascinating people who live a conscious life. That gives me enough material for my blog.
