Alexandra Checchini

Yoga teacher 200h, 300h
Teaching Vinyasa Yoga on Monday and Wednesday evenings

In the beginning it was the physical aspect of yoga that fascinated Alexandra. Later on her world tour, yoga developed as her personal attitude to life. Alexandra is fascinated by the versatility and the holistic connection of yoga. For her, yoga means connecting body and mind and taking time for herself. Yoga also means for her to share fun and joy of life with each other. In Alexandra's lessons she incorporates the many aspects of yoga, asanas for the body, meditation exercises for the mind and pranayama for the spirit. She is happy to share her passion and joy for Yoga with you.

In 2012 Dmitrii completed his first yoga teacher training. Gradually, yoga changed from a tool to a lifestyle.

Linda Schenker

Yogal teacher (RYT 200)
Teaching Hatha Yoga on Friday

Linda found her way to yoga in 2013 without knowing it. The three-month stay on the Canary Island Fuerteventura turned into a three-year break. She lived a whole new life, which awakened her consciousness and got to know countless people who follow their hearts and are satisfied with their life as it is. Back in Switzerland she was missing something. The search ended with Yoga. She decided to train as a yoga teacher and found a lot in the books, which she had found out for herself on her way through Spain. She also wants to show others how she builds a bridge between yoga and everyday life.

Martina Wüest

Yoga teacher 200h, Yin Yoga 46h
Teaching Yin Yoga on Thursday evening

Martina found her way to yoga by chance about 14 years ago at the "Sport am Mittag" offer of her employer.
OMs, Mantras, Pranayama and Shavasana as well as the vibrations of the singing bowls touched her deeply. The curiosity for more was awakened and since then Martina has been practising regularly. Yoga has accompanied her during her studies as well as during her one year stay in New Zealand and has had a great influence on her. On her yoga path she was inspired by various wonderful people. Now she is happy to share her knowledge and experiences.

Nadia Zobrist

Yoga teacher 500h

Teaching Yoga on Saturday

Since Nadia can remember, she has always loved to move her body. However, at twenty-one, excessive strain put her into overtraining and forced her to look for alternatives. She strived for a holistic, self-determined healing process and discovered yoga. "Although my first interest was physically motivated, I realised after the first lesson that yoga for me meant active participation in life and that I would pursue it intensively". Nadia attended weekly classes and several theme courses and completed her 500 hour training as a yoga teacher in Lucerne in 2019. Her greatest passion is in the therapeutic area: primarily around the health of fasciae and joints, as in the mutual influence of body, breath and mind. Her wish is that people discover their own path and balance through their individual yoga practice.

Youngju An

Yoga teacher 400h 
Teaching Vinyasa Flow on Tuesday evening


Youngju's first yoga class was on a beautiful beach on the island of La Reunion. During this yoga class she had so many thoughts and it felt difficult to remain calm in the tree position. Through increased yoga training Youngju was able to find her inner peace and improve her posture. Yoga gives her physical and mental strength. It enables her to deal with difficult situations in daily life. "Yoga has inspired me and fascinated me. I was eager to know more, so I took part in several yoga trainings, where I deepened my knowledge of yoga". Three elements are very important to her in her daily yoga practice and classes: alignment of the body for stability, creative and structured sequences for physical intelligence and conscious breathing. The aim of her classes is that at the end of the yoga class the participants feel relieved and refreshed and carry a positive energy within them.

Nathalie Palermo

Administration, Customer requests and support

NathaliePalermo-Yoga-Admin-Mii-Ruum-Luzern-Webjpg

Nathalie found her way to yoga through Pilates, the beneficial effects of which she was able to experience over 15 years ago. One of the reasons why she likes yoga and pilates so much is that it brings her into contact with herself, she can adapt the training to her individual needs and it can be practised everywhere. To Nathalie, yoga is more than just a physical practice. She is happy to support the Mii-Ruum team in the administration and can combine this with her passion for Yoga.

Selina Scheiwiller

Administration, Customer requests & support, Social Media

Selina has been practicing yoga regularly for years and has always enjoyed getting to know different yoga styles and teachers, as she was always able to learn something new and open up new perspectives. Her passion for yoga grew and inspired her daily. Not only the physical aspect and the control of the breath, but also living yoga off the mat fascinates Selina a lot.
"Through yoga I feel more balanced and connected to my inner self. I am curious to see where yoga will take me in my life and I am looking forward to being part of the Mii-Ruum team."

Aischa Labiodh

Yoga teacher 200h
Substitutions for Yoga classes


Aischa first came into contact with yoga in 2014, when she was looking for a practice that would give her more flexibility for her body and peace of mind in addition to her passion for exercise and sports. After the first time, Aischa immediately noticed that yoga triggered a positive feeling in her, which could not really be described. It touched her heart from the beginning and she soon realized that yoga is more than just movement. It is a holistic philosophy that helped her to achieve more satisfaction, ease and compassion in dealing with herself and others. Yoga became an important part of her life and she is very impressed by its healing on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Caroline von Allmen

Pilates instructor (art of motion), 
dipl. Physiotherapist,

Head of Pilates substitutions

For Caroline, Pilates and Pilates Slings is the perfect balance for the soul and body for the endurance sport that accompanies her almost daily routine. Pilates Slings has awakened a passion in her, because in this form of movement you learn to work precisely and listen to your inner self. Through continuity, the body can learn and experience movements that will help you in everyday life as well as in endurance sports. Caroline is particularly fond of the fasciated Pilates Slings by art of motion and she is convinced that this training can lead to a better power transmission in and within the muscles. She is looking forward to sharing her experience and knowledge with you and to spending exciting, challenging and all-round beneficial hours together.

Leydi Küttel

Yoga teacher 200h and 300h (Ashtanga-Vinyasa)
Teaching Vinyasa, currently on maternity leave

Leydi started her practice 14 years ago with Hatha-Sivananda Yoga and Power Yoga in a fitness club. "The first lessons were very impressive for me, as it was the first time in my life that I was able to experience my breath, my perception of my body and my thoughts in a mindful way. Moving the body fluidly through the sounds of music has always been Leydi's passion. As a child she started with Jazz-Dance, later she took part in the Oberrüti association competition- dance gymnastics. After a cruciate ligament rupture, she began to devote herself more intensively to yoga and discovered a new passion. "Yoga has shown me that it is about more than the body and the mind". The journey into the depths of yoga led her to complete the training as a yoga teacher in India. Leydi's lessons are creative, peppered with pictures and tools. This way she creates the basis for each yogi to unfold and develop further in her personal practice. Leydi is looking forward to exciting encounters with her yoga students* at Mii-Ruum Studio.
