Aerial Yoga Instructor
Ruth has been practicing yoga since 1987, and in 2003 she started a year long teacher training with Deborah Cohen (Core Yoga) to deepen her own practice. She received her yoga teacher certification in 2004, and discovered she loved to teach and enjoyed sharing her love of yoga and movement. Since then she has been teaching a wide variety of yoga classes, from vigorous flow classes to prenatal and senior yoga in various studios and gyms. Ruth creates a supportive environment in her classes, addressing the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of yoga. Ruth’s classes offer a mix of holding varied poses and flowing through asanas. After doing Aerial Yoga for a number of years, Ruth trained as an Aerial Yoga Teacher with Joanna Keseberg and was certified by her as an Integrative Aerial Yoga Teacher in June 2013. She is registered as an Experienced Yoga Teacher (ERYT 200) with the Yoga Alliance and is a Reiki practitioner (Level I and II). Ruth gives special attention to alignment, including touch corrections. She has received an award for her prenatal yoga teaching at Isis Parenting in 2009.
Originally from Switzerland, she is an artist, illustrator, liturgical dancer, mother and grandmother. She has illustrated a yoga picture book for children (among other picture books), Journey to Inner Space (written by Deborah R. Cohen). Ruth holds a PhD in German Language and Literature from the University of Zurich.
