ABOUT Nicoleta

I am devoted to following my innermost feelings felt in the depth of my heart and I am here to inspire you to do the same.

I am passionate about Yoga & Thai Yoga Massage and I use these as the main tools to support  you on your path to health, well-being and self discovery.

Glimpses from my Journey
I have been on a journey of self discovery and healing for more than 15 years and in 2012, during a yoga class I was taking, I felt and an inner desire to study more about yoga.
I did my first Yoga Teacher Training Course (RYS 200h) in 2013 at Sanapurna in Zürich. This was a turning point in my life.
Since then I continue to expand and refine my understanding and skills as a teacher and assistant teacher during the yearly teacher trainings at Sanapurna and by attending numerous other yoga trainings and workshops, follow this link for more info.
Another turning point was when I went to my first Thai Yoga Massage Training in 2014.
I have long been interested in the healing arts and the encounter with Thai Yoga Massage felt like coming home. My relation to touch gained a new dimension. I was deeply moved by the impact of the touch coming from the heart and I knew this is something I want to learn, explore and share.
Trainings & Experience
I am certified in Antastha Yoga – Yoga with Blindfolds (100h) by its founder Sanjeev Bhanot and trained in Yin Yoga (50h) with Joe Barnett. I am also certified Thai Yoga Massage practitioner with teachers from the Sunshine Network such as: Krishnataki, Thierry Bienfaisant, Zoltan Gyorgyovics.  I love to share the practices of Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage since 2013, respectively 2014. Since 2022 I'm also EMR certified therapist for Thai Massage.

Short Bio

I grew up in the cosmopolite city of Bucharest and since 2002 I live in Zurich. I came in contact with yoga already during my late teenage years, first from literature and later on also in practice. I also hold a PhD in Statistics (ETH Zürich) and have worked for more than 15 years in the corporate world (Marketing, Clinical Trials, Official Statistics). In parallel, the path of Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage started to unfold as well.  I'm currently balancing the office work with my passion for movement in form of yoga & thai yoga massage.
