Über Juan Carlos Russo

Trained initially in ashtanga, Juan Carlos had always been deeply inspired by B.K.S Iyengar’s book “Light on Yoga”. Juan Carlos met his first Iyengar teacher Jaya Water in the ashram of Amma in 2005. 

In 2008, Juan Carlos started his certification journey and obtained introductory level II in 2010. 

Over the years, Juan Carlos has run his own studio and has traveled to teach in many places throughout Europe. His fascination with human anatomy and alignment led him to the study of Osteothai—a therapeutic integration of osteopathy and Thai massage techniques. Juan Carlos is now based in Bali. He is teaching while studying under senior Iyengar teacher Kathy Cook to further his Iyengar journey. Juan Carlos believes that the students are the best teachers, and therefore highly values his students’ feedback and insights.

He is a therapist with profound knowledge. His fascination with human anatomy and alignment led him to the study of Osteothai. It is a rare opportunity, that he practices in Switzerland – book a one-hour Osteothai massage with him, during the Yoga Days in Weggis.

Candlelight Yin Yoga

FR  22.04.22, 19:30 - 22.30

Hotel Alpenblick


Sprache: EN / DE

Candlelight Yin ist eine tief beruhigende Praxis die sich darauf konzentriert die Muskulatur zu entspannen und tief in unser Bindegewebe einwirkt. Wir verwenden Yoga Props zur Unterstützung der langgehaltenen Asanas, um deine Muskeln zu entspannen und mit der Schwerkraft den Körper Richtung Erde sinken zu lassen. Yin bietet eine Alternative zur „Yang“-Praxis, indem es die dauernden Ablenkungen des Geistes verlangsamt und hilft, im Jetzt präsent zu bleiben. Viele Schüler genießen die meditative Wirkung der lang gehaltenen Yoga-Asanas, um den Stress des täglichen Lebens los zu lassen. Während dieser Yoga Session wird Manuela dich durch eine Reihe von Pranayama-Techniken (Atemtechniken) führen und dann in beruhigender Kerzenlicht Atmosphäre zu Yin-Asanas übergehen. Du wirst dich weich, ruhig und offen fühlen. Manuela schafft einen sicheren Raum zum Wohlfühlen, unterstützt durch wundervolle Hands-on-Adjustments.

The Breath ist eine zweistündige Reise mit Manuela, welche die innere Stimme hörbar macht. Die intensive Arbeit mit dem Atem in Verbindung mit Musik, Yoga, Klang und Mantras ermöglicht eine besondere Selbsterfahrung. Die Absicht gilt hierbei der emotionalen und mentalen Reinigung. Bereits ein erster Kontakt mit Breathwork schafft ausserdem ein unbekannt energetisierendes Gefühl sowie einen neuen Zugang zu sich und dem individuellen Lebenssinn. Über eine regelmässige Praxis in Breathwork wird diese Verbindung vertieft und stabilisiert. Der zweistündige Workshop mit Manuela schenkt einen Einblick in die prozessorientierte, kraftvolle Atemarbeit und ihrem inne liegenden Zauber.


Über Aimée Challies 

Movement is my language. I love to encourage and inspire people on their movement journey. 

Creativity and expression of movement began as a young ballet student, with an acute attention to detail and technique firmly imprinted through classical and contemporary ballet.

I've taught movement modalities (yoga, Pilates, Garuda) for over 18 years in UK, Europe, Australia and NZ;  teaching everyone from professional ballet dancers to elite athletes, rehabilitation and woman's health. I have been a master trainer; specifically for the Garuda method and am particularly passionate about the art of teaching. 

Quality teaching requires knowledge and experience, as well as empathy and an unrelenting belief in another’s movement.

Infinite Possibilities 


Hotel Alexander

Level: Alle

Sprache: EN 

Explore infinite possibilities. From the variations in your movement; spirals, waves and undulations of the spine. To the quality & dynamism of your movement; soft, strong, fluid, power etc... There is a wealth of potential in the body & an innate ability to tap into; if we are open to exploring.

The wonderful thing about exploring the way your body moves, is it allows you to be in the drivers seat. You are in charge of exploring how your body moves & how it inhabits space.

When you are truly connected to your movement, only you will know what feels good and what feels right. Your practice develops beautifully in this process, because movement never lies! You embody your practice. 


Über Deddou Schaller

Hi, Ich bin Deddou und unterstütze dich durch Human Design und meinen langjährigen Erfahrungsschatz im Yoga persönlich und beruflich zu wachsen.

Aus eigener Erfahrung weiss ich, wie wichtig es ist über den Körper in eine innere Harmonie und Kraft zu kommen und aus diesem inneren Alignment dem eigenen Polarstern zu folgen. 

Nur, wie komm ich in meine Kraft, in meinen Körper? Und was ist mein Polarstern, mein nächster Schritt in meinem Leben? Wie bringe ich mehr Leichtigkeit, Flow und Freude auf diese Reise und in meinen Alltag mit? 

Während meinen knapp 10 Jahren als Yogalehrerin und Unternehmerin, habe ich nicht nur beruflich, sondern auch durchs Yoga enorm viele Erfahrungen gesammelt und intensiv mit Menschen gearbeitet. Was ich dabei gelernt habe?

Die Arbeit beginnt immer im Innern.

Das Human Design hilft uns das Innere sichtbar zu machen. 
Es dient uns als Landkarte deine Individualität, deine Superkraft, sowie Lernfelder & Zusammenhänge zu entdecken. 

Und damit es nicht nur beim Verstehen und beim Erkennen bleibt, nutze ich Embodiment Practices, um die Erkenntnisse im Körper zu verankern und zu integrieren. Denn nur aus der Balance zwischen Yin (deinem Körper) und Yang (dem Wissen) kann langanhaltende und tiefgehende Veränderung geschehen. 

Durch meine Arbeit unterstütze ich dich durch Human Design und Embodiment deinen ganz individuellen Weg, aus deiner inneren Kraft mit Leichtigkeit und Freude, zu gehen.

Meridian Yoga - Yin & Yang 

SO  24.04.22, 13.00 - 16.00

Hotel Alpenblick

Level: Mittel und Fortgeschrittene

Sprache: EN

This 3hr intensive session is a powerful cross-over of ancient Yoga Asana, Meditation, and TCM which when combined, can empower our Yoga path towards healing and deeper self-knowledge. During the practice you’ll get an overview of the principles of Yin/Yang and the importance of their balance, the five elements, basic theory of the 12 main meridians, how the meridians affect our body, how they can support our daily yoga practice and well-being. The practice time will combine floor based Yin Yoga, a dynamic and heating Yang practice (Hatha Style) to move the Qi through the body, an organ scan and a deep Yoga Nidra practice to finish up. During the Yang sequence we will look at each meridian and practice some of the related yoga postures, to build a deeper understanding of how our stretches and movements influence our organ health, and with that our emotions and therefor the mind. This workshop is not separated in theory and practice, it's a practice and experienced based workflow that allows us to implement and embody the new information right away.
