Heidi Aemisegger started her career as a dancer and choreographer and her drive to express herself through beauty and art, to move and to be creative kept her on stage for over 25 years. In the meantime she was introduced to yoga. It was love at first practice. In 2007 she took her first TT. She went to India to practice with Pattabhi Jois and founded Ashtanga Yoga Bern.
She became fascinated about Pranayama, Meditation, Anatomy, Yoga Philosophy and Sanskrit and devoted years of her life to these studies, which are also now part of her teachings. In 2014 she took a 300h Jivamukti Teacher Training in NY.
She has studied with great masters and teachers: Sharon Gannon, David Life, Shri O.P. Tiwari, Paul Dallaghan, Manorama, Eddie Stern, Petri Räisänen, Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Manju Jois, Saraswathi Jois, Richard Freeman, Petros Haffenrichter and many others.
Heidi’s authentic and holistic approach inspires passion for self-discovery and self-healing. She believes in the healing powers of yoga to overcome the limitations of the mind and for her teaching is not only an act of love but also part of her mission to bring trust, hope, courage and knowledge to people.
Heidi is the founder of Ashtanga Yoga Bern. She is also the co-owner of Jivamukti Yoga Bern where she teaches.
