This is Bali Yoga Wien
How Bali Yoga Wien started
The studio was created by Beate, originally from Innsbruck. She completed her international management studies in the United States and spent several years in politics and business before she lived in Bali for 22 years. Marrying a New Zealander and having two daughters, Chiana and Davina, in Bali, created a lifelong family foundation to nourish on. The lush island awakened many passions in her: interior design, villa construction & management, health & well-being, alternative healing modalities, nutrition and of course … Yoga.
When her daughter, Chiana, decided to study in Vienna, Beate accompanied her and returned to Austria. Through a series of interesting events, which were a twist of fate, Bali Yoga Wien was born.
What Bali Yoga Wien stands for
It is a unique combination of Beate’s view on Yoga, and her experience of living in both the Eastern and Western world:
“Yoga is a journey of the soul and not just physical exercise. Often the Eastern wisdom and traditions come up short in the West or even lose their meaning completely. I see Bali Yoga Wien as my contribution to this connection, as well as a place of grounding. For those of us living in the cities in Europe, being earthed is so important.
For me Bali Yoga Wien is the bridge between East and West, the head and the heart, the yin and the yang. Like the word Yoga itself, which comes from “yog” = union, we stand for connection: a person is not seen separately from other people, from the environment and from higher powers. This is the foundation of Bali Yoga Wien and this is reflected in the interaction amongst the team, with the students, how and what we teach, how we live as a community and as well as what we practice on the mat.”
