Nassera Guerroumi

Nassera is an authorised Ashtanga teacher approved by R. Sharath KPJAYI Mysore and founder of AYZ.

Before having moved to Zurich, she taught and practiced at The Yoga Shala Singapore, Singapore’s number 1 Ashtanga school.

In 2007 Nassera started her Ashtanga apprenticeship under her teacher (and now dear friend) James Figueira from who she kept learning until the day she left Singapore. She also absolved a 500h yoga teacher training course to deepen her knowledge and teaching experience.

She has also been an avid runner, having completed marathons in Berlin & London and several ½ marathons and other long-distance runs. 

In the spirit of “feel good, do good”, Nassera donates a percentage of her profit to a small charity called ‘Operation Shanti’, near Mysore, India.

So if you want to learn Ashtanga yoga in Zurich, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to a class one day ; )
