Isabella Welsch

I was born in the late 60s in Salzburg, Austria. My father started teaching me yoga when I was an adolescent. Since then, the fascination of yoga has never faded and I had, in turn, started teaching yoga from 1990 onwards, mostly in my own studios and at the University´s Sports Institute of Vienna.

I also studied psychology and have been working as a psychotherapist in Vienna for many years. Of course, the perspective of western psychology influenced my approach to yoga and vice versa – the fruit of which is a yoga practice in which I connect with ease the east and the west, the old and the new, the rational and the emotional and many other polarities.

In my flexible athayoga-series you can experience those years of dedicated learning in different yoga-styles with sincerity and joy. During our meditations you will find out more about yourself, about life and being.

In the spring of 2017, I had an opportunity to purchase a beautiful house in Altafulla, a small town on the mediterranean coast – 80 km south of Barcelona.

This is the place where from now on I offer yoga-workshops and teacher-trainings for all people who have the desire to practice and to explore some of the many secrets of yoga.

Why Spain? The mild Spanish climate with a warm sunny ambience all year round, the cool breeze of the mediterranean, the salty air, the sea and the smell of the pine forests make me feel even more alive, healthy and happy. Years ago, I learned Spanish in high-school in Austria and was touched by the beauty of its melody. Now, it is all coming together…

I invite you to share with me the most precious gift… to be here, now… aware of the present moment and grateful for the big mystery of life.
