About Us

We Believe Yoga is for Everybody.

Our Story

Centrally located in the heart of Nyon, Yoga Moves Nyon opened its doors in2012. We have progressively grown and created a special bond with the local community whilst continuing to offer the best classes in the region. From classic Hatha style, Warm, Vinyasa and Pilates, Pre-natal, Seniors, Kids, Yin and Restorative, we offer different types of yoga for every individual preference and need.

Our aim is to continually accommodate and adapt to our students’ requirements and with over 20 classes each week, as well as affordable and flexible memberships, we offer a yoga practice for all schedules.

In our experience of sharing yoga, we have seen that the more welcomed and at ease we feel in a studio space, the more able we are to relax and discover the benefits of yoga at our own pace without pressure, competition, or judgement.

We are keen to share yoga with an ever-increasing community of like-minded people, and feel that our modest, down-to-earth philosophy has been vital to our success.

We are very proud of our experienced and compassionate team of teachers, who strive in every class to modify, inspire, and help students reach and maintain optimal levels of physical and mental health. By experiencing different teachers and styles students have access to a rich tapestry of many different ideas, personalities, and methods, for an open and all-round understanding of yoga. Alongside regular classes we offer a variety of workshops with often renowned international teachers, as well as our ongoing teacher training programs. Yoga Moves Nyon is a refuge of peace, sanity, and kindness. We look forward to welcoming you.

Lorsque j’ai découvert le yoga en 2004, j’ai tout de suite ressenti les bienfaits de cette pratique. Cette bulle de détente me permet de recharger mes batteries. Mon corps est léger, mon esprit aussi.

Yoga makes my body mind and soul blissful, and One. Yoga taught me to turn inwards to find love, joy, strength, trust, creativity, patience, compassion…

Laura

Yoga Instructor

When I was at school, I wanted to become a doctor, but traditional medicine didn’t seem right to me. I was reading a lot, and while traveling I found out about Ayurveda, yoga, natural medicine.

Kate

I have started practicing yoga many years ago, but my first time in a warm setting was in March 2012 in Boston.

Patrizia

My most important intention is to free my soul and become who I really am.

Dancing her way through life and giving the warmest hugs to anybody in need

Marius

Yoga Instructor

I started my yoga practice willing to sculpt my body; a very superficial desire then. Over time, I found my time spent on the mat much more fruitful.

Laura

Yoga Instructor

In my prenatal classes, I offer you a moment to slow down, ground yourself and listen with kindness to what your body has to tell you.

Maelle

Le Yoga est pour moi, mon moment de “détente et qui me procure bien-être” où je peux canaliser mes énergies et me recentrer.

First time in Studio ?

Many new students start their yoga journey here with us! Everyone can practice yoga regardless of age, experience, ability, or flexibility. We have something for everyone at the studio.

Here are some tips to help make your experience a good one.

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to meet the teacher and make yourself at home. We ask that you are in the yoga room 5 mins before the class starts. First timers who are late for class will not be accepted, for their own benefit.
  • Wear comfortable breathable clothes to stretch and sweat in. Barefoot on the mat.
  • For Warm Yoga, come to class hydrated and bring a water bottle and a large towel. Avoid eating a large meal two hours before class.
  • Bring your yoga mat or you can use the mat we have for you. We have showers, but you would need to bring your own towel for the shower.
  • Avoid wearing perfumes or heavy scents of any kind. Please, no smoking just before coming to the studio.
  • Have fun! If you feel any pain, please do not push through it. Be aware of your limits and take it as slow as you need to. You may rest as often during your class as you need.
  • If you are pregnant or have any serious injury or illness please consult your doctor first so that you are cleared to exercise. Your teacher will help you modify your practice to suit your needs.
  • If it has been a while since the last time, or you have never done yoga before, that’s okay. Almost every class is geared toward a beginner. The teacher will help you find a level of practice matching your ability.
  • You may want to check with your health insurance if they cover yoga membership expenses.
