“With my life, I want to make this world a little bit better.”
This has always been Deddou’s guiding mantra. It was the mantra behind launching POP UP YOGA – exhilarating yoga in exciting places – where Deddou wanted to make yoga more accessible and help spreading the time-proven teachings of this ancient practice to modern life.
It has also been her mantra when creating Deddou Schaller, her personal brand, where she supports Yoga Teachers with Trainings, Coaching and Mentoring. By sharing her skills, experience and learnings of being a yoga teacher, business owner and entrepreneur for more than a decade, she intends to make a positive impact in many people’s lives and therefore making the world a little bit better.
Deddou has been a yoga teacher for more than 8 years and her teaching style ranges from exhilarating, creative Vinyasa Flow Yoga to therapeutic Yoga and Yoga practices specifically addressing the energetic body.
In 2016 she set up her first Teacher Training which has evolved to a popular 250h Vinyasa Flow Yoga Training in and beyond Zürich. It puts emphasis on creative sequencing and the practical aspect of teaching yoga. By now over 80 yoga teachers have graduated, many of them teaching yoga on a regular basis.
Over the past years she set up additional Trainings from Yin Yoga to Advanced Anatomy or Pre-Natal and Energetic Anatomy Trainings, revolutionizing the way yoga is passed on. She’s been at the front of integrating the latest technology for optimal learning and skill development and combining it with highly educated Yoga Teachers, who are experts in their respective fields.
In 2020 she finally decided to unite two seemingly opposite skills of hers: her skills and experience as a yoga teacher and her BA in business & communication. Yoga Teachers can work with Deddou in group-settings for example in her 40h Business of Yoga Training or in 1-1 mentoring or personal coaching.

Teaching & Energy
A workshop for (prospective) yoga teachers and bodyworkers
It is very easy to burn out energetically as a yoga teacher. You give a lot of your energy, hold the space and those present with your own presence. You are there for your students and your yoga community far beyond the class. In addition, yoga teachers travel a lot. You commute from one studio / appointment to the next and not only juggle the physically challenging work, but also take care of the entire organization and planning of your offer, answer emails, send invoices, settle accounts with authorities and also maintain your own yoga practice. You're mostly a one-man / woman show. That means, when you are sick, you don't earn anything and still: You start every day with verve and put a lot of heart and soul into your work.
We will have a conversation about how to protect and nourish your energy so that you can go about your work with a lot of passion over the long term. In addition to the exchange in the group, Deddou shares valuable tips with you, answers questions and tells you very personally about her experiences and learnings.

A refined alternation between movement and rest, physical and energetic experiences, a harmonious flow, an opening and arriving make this yoga experience unique. A meditation and a long final relaxation round off this workshop.
