MORE ABOUT MYSELF

"I believe that we are the result of infinite experiences in continuous evolution"

Iyengar Yoga

I have been practicing YOGA for the last 25 years of my life.

I have been a Yoga Certified Teacher since 2015. I have practiced Iyengar Yoga since 2014 with the most renowned Iyengar Yoga teachers of the world such as Abhijata Iyengar, Prashant Iyengar, Christian Pisano, Lois Steinberg, Patricia Walden, Faeq Biria, Eyal Shifroni, Sri HS Arun, Aarti Mehta. In 2021 I passed successfully the exam  to become a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher,

Level I in Switzerland. I am a member of the Association of Iyengar Yoga in Switzerland.

I started practicing Iyengar Yoga in 2014 with Rachele Di Fino (Barcelona). Then I have continued my practice during  4 years at the CIIB (Iyengar Yoga Center of Barcelona) with Jordi Martí, Sílvia Ros and their team. In 2020 I have discovered a different point of view with Silvia Diaz Chica and with Barbie Abeles. From 2020 until 2022 I have taking online classes regularly with

Abhijata Iyengar and Raya Uma Datta.

 

In Switzerland I am participating often in the workshops of Francesca Aebi and I have the great honor to receive the mentoring of Uschi Moser​ to prepare myself for the assessment of Level II in Iyengar Yoga ​. ​I have started to study with Lois Steinberg the therapeutic approach in yoga​ exclusively for Certified Iyengar Yoga teachers​. ​

​Learning is pure inspiration for myself and the only way to feel comfortable when I am guiding others in a yoga class. ​Yoga is a journey for myself. Yoga is life.

Psychology

I have a degree in Psychology (2010-Argentina) specialized in the psychoanalytic clinic. I also studied lyrical singing and piano for several years at the School of Music of the National University of Cuyo. Since 2000, I have participated as a singer with different groups of music discovering various styles. In 2010 I went to live in France and I have decided to open my horizons in psychology by doing a specialization in Art therapy at the Université Catholique de Lille. Since then I have studied different approaches such as Existential Psychology, Positive Psychology, Brief Psychotherapy, Systemic Psychology, Coaching and I have worked for multinationals being in charge of the recruiting process and managing a team.

My diplomas are recognized in Argentina, France, Spain and in Switzerland (PsyCo).

 

In Yoga and in Therapy, I recognize each human being from the uniqueness, my experiences and knowledge allow me to adapt to the needs of my clients/students and open a safe space to work on a mental and physical level.

I work in Spanish, English and French.

 
 

Victoria ist eine grossartige und sehr professionelle Yogalehrerin. Sie zeigt und erklärt jede Haltung detailliert und korrigiert die Haltung und eventuelle Fehler so, dass man als Schüler selbst zuhause Yoga praktizieren kann. Ich habe sehr viel von ihr gelernt, vor allem aber hat sie mich inspiriert, Yoga in meinen wöchentlichen und (wann immer möglich) sogar täglichen Sportplan zu integrieren. Sie ist nicht nur eine sehr erfahrene Yogalehrerin, sondern immer nett und guter Laune, wodurch ihre Kurse besonders angenehm und wertvoll sind.

In den letzten Monaten konnten wir aufgrund der Einschränkungen durch Covid nur online über Zoom an den Yoga-Kursen von Victoria teilnehmen. Und gerade in dieser Zeit hat sich ihre Stärke besonders bezahlt gemacht, dass sie jeden einzelnen Schüler genau beobachtet und sofern nötig die Haltung korrigiert. Auch mit den reduzierten Möglichkeiten - Kontakt zu den Teilnehmern nur über die Kamera - schafft es Victoria, uns zu motivieren und die Essenz von Yoga zu vermitteln.
