Authenticity is the key

YTP: What inspired you to become a yoga teacher trainer?

Nico: The growth I see in people when they connect to the present moment, embrace who they are and share from the heart.

YTP: What is your one hope for each and every graduate of your yoga teacher training program?

Nico: That they create the life they want to live and that they become catalysts for change in the world.

YTP: Tell us about your yoga teacher training.

Nico: I offer students a 200-hour Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program certified by Yoga Alliance (RYS 200). This training is a complete and progressive learning experience that deepens student’s knowledge and builds a solid foundation for a working yoga teacher. …  I believe a deeper understanding of yoga and how to teach asana comes from a consistent commitment to your personal practice, and your practice will become a well-spring of resources and inspiration for you as a teacher. As such, asana, bio-mechanics and sequencing are at the core of this training.

YTP: What do you think makes a great yoga teacher?

Nico: Authenticity!



Nico has lived all over the world and now calls Switzerland home. He’s been teaching yoga since 2003 and is a consummate student training in various lineages including Power Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Anusara, Yin and Pilates as well as eastern philosophy and spirituality. You don’t have to travel to take a class with him (you can do that online through My Yoga) but if you want to join one of his many teacher trainings, you’ll have to make your way to Milan, Aukland or Lausanne.
