Daniela’s classes are a mix of chants, philosophical-thought-provoking inputs with day-to-day examples spiced with her crafty-Latin humor, sound & breath awereness, body-intelligent flowy asana (yoga poses) sequences, hands-on assist through which you receive tremendous loads loving wisdom cultivated through her many years of practice and teaching, meditation & relaxation.

Daniela provides the fire to fuel any practice and just being in her presence offers transformation physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  She began practicing Yoga at the age of 17 and after 15 years of practice and many different phases, Yoga practice has become a tool in her life that plays a very important role in her perspectives, relationships and creative work. She likes to conceive “yogis” as random people who -as David Swenson wisely said once- leave a place a little bit better than how they found it.

If you know her, then you know your world is going to change.  From a Multidiscipline Creatix, to an International Jivamukti Yoga Instructor and Founder of B.Yoga Basel, this woman is a powerful force offering a myriad of knowledge to her students. She thinks people live fully when they don’t limit themselves to inhabit only one aspect of their lives but as many as possible and she nourishes her yoga teachings with many sources.



shot10Yoga is a way to become powerful. It is a frame work within which one can develop integrity and virtue. A skillful Yoga practice can reshape and adjust damaged or malformed bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments, tune the nervous system to handle the shock of living, aim and stretch thoughts to actualize goals, reorient and adjust posture to develop poise and perspective, and release stored emotions and dis-ease in the organs by massaging, pumping, squeezing, stretching, and organizing them. Yoga can also carry us across the thresholds of our lives by making us safe, sane, able, resilient, and self actualized. The Vesica Practice is designed to give us the tools, techniques, and blueprints necessary to develop a potent and sustainable practice that transcends yoga trends and brands, and teaches us how to participate in our own well being.

About David
A Yoga practice has multiple functions. It can refine and elevate our sense of self, harmonize and strengthen our constitution, and most interestingly yoga can transcribe the body’s language. Through practice and study, most notably with Nevine Michaan, I have developed the ability to relate the depth, skill, and practicality that a mindful yoga practice has to offer.

About Martin
Martin fell in love with yoga when his job with a large Swiss company made him move his life from Zurich, Switzerland, to New York City where he took his first yoga class ever at Cyndi Lee’s OM Yoga Center.A couple of years later, he graduated from OM Yoga’s renowned teacher training and has since then successfully pursued his vision to make the benefits of yoga available to as many people as possible. 

Based in Basel Switzerland, he works as an independent yoga teacher. In addition, as a consultant for large multinational companies, he has been teaching all aspects of yoga to employees and managers from all over the world, from all realms of life. He has been invited to teach workshops and retreats in London and Italy. During his travels to India, he studied Sivananda and Ashtanga yoga.

Martin has taught more than 2’000 classes to students from all skill levels and together with his wife, he also runs training programs for yoga teachers. Committed to continuing education, he currently finishes his advanced anatomy studies with Leslie Kaminoff, New York, one of the most respected anatomy teachers in the yoga world, as well es his advanced studies in human anatomy, Kinesiology, and Biomechanics with Jason Ray Brown and Katy Bowman. Martin is the president of Yogacommunity, a non-profit organization based in Basel, Switzerland, that organizes donation-based yoga events and runs the first purely donation-based yoga studio in Basel. In 2015, Martin started to write his first book, “Yoga – Your Path to Health, Happiness & Freedom” – his dream is to finish and publish it by the end of 2017.

For Martin, yoga has healed him from severe back and knee pains from which he suffered before. While working often 16 hours per day, he had lost the ability to relax physically and mentally and unhealthy habits had caused him significant heart problems. For Martin, yoga has helped him to return onto a path of health, happiness, and freedom. He thinks that yoga can help you to get in touch with your true self, to be physically fit and mentally balanced. This can  give you enormous strength and energy from within to live your life more fully, more mindfully, and more peacefully and in harmony with your environment.


500 RYT Yoga Alliance
Dynamic Yoga Certified Teacher

fotoSergioAbout Sergio
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and began my yoga journey at the very young age of 10, my mother was taking yoga lessons and she had the wonderful idea to bring me along. That was a big change to my life! I attended these lessons until I was about 16, it helped me a lot throughout my studies, as a side effect it gave me concentration, resistance, strength and flexibility.

Yoga is, since then, a part of my everyday life.

Later I pursued a career in contemporary dance, being a professional dancer for more than 15 years. I worked at the Contemporary Ballet at the San Martin theater in Buenos Aires, and at Vertical Danse in Geneva among other smaller independent dance companies. My regular yoga practice during the very challenging dance period was crucial for avoiding injuries, as I like to say: it saved my joints!

During the last years of my dance career I studied music, solo singing, specialized in early music and became a professional singer. Yoga also was present helping me find the relation between all body parts working simultaneously as a whole, and keeping the flexibility at all times, this gave me a better understanding of my instrument, my body! I work as a singer mainly with my Ensemble Troparion.

My first yoga teaching education came also at this time, having the opportunity to meet wonderful and generous teachers during my journey. I’m now a certified yoga teacher (Yoga Alliance RYT 500) and also a dynamic yoga teacher trained with and certified by Godfrey Devereux. I constantly visit workshops to broaden my teaching spectrum.

Since 2014 Sergio is main yoga teacher and runs the Red Earth Centre yoga studio in Paris, France.


In Sergio Igelisas’ yoga classes I find introduction to an understanding and knowledge of yoga that grows from a strong lifelong practice and experience. This is quite rare. Preciseness, welcome, and mindfulness, the pleasantness (euphony) of voice and careful choice of language guide the subtle flows. Though I am only new, time spent with yogabasilea became already very essential and dear to me. Having realised misunderstandings and ambitions, there seems a way – a dynamic way – to trust the body. Challenges, slow and fast, go parallel with a process of learning how to move almost without effort. I am looking forward each time.” Isabel, Basel

About Amrta
As a child I was lucky enough to have a first hand experience to yoga, through my father who was an advanced practitioner on a daily basis. I was very eager to sit in Lotus pose and look at the pictures in his yoga books already in my early childhood years. This striving and attachment to India remained and magnified so far that when I was 19 and lived in Vienna I decided to join a Bhakti Yoga Ashram at the Center for Vedic Studies in Vienna where I could immerse myself and study Yoga, Meditation, Sanskrit, Indian classical music, traditional ancient Indian philosophy and even ayurvedic culinary art, to learn and experience more about the ancient Vedic yoga heritage.
The following years I traveled to numerous Ashrams in Europe and India where I was holding seminars on Vedic culture with Meditation, Kirtan singing, cooking courses and discussions on Bhakti yoga for different groups of people. In 2005 I decided to concentrate more on my Asana practice keeping the philosophy and the theories more in the background. So I started to practice with teachers like Joel Pier, Bikram Yoga Philadelphia, to expend my vision and understanding of Yogasana. In between – as a dedicated vegetarian – I worked and managed a couple of Ayurvedic restaurants in the US, Hungary and just recently in Sweden. Then in 2010 I came down with the decision to put my full attention to teaching Yoga and sharing what I’ve learned over the years.
In 2011 I finished the 200 hrs. Teachers Training Course in Atma Vikasa, Center in Yogic Sciences, Mysore, and changed my home base from Malmo, Sweden to Basel. Yoga became for me more than “a hobby”, it is a way to lead my life that enables me to be much more balanced and concentrated in my daily life. It connects me to others in an deeper more intimate way and as I grow in it it makes me feel to be a much more valuable part of the „whole picture“.
