about me and the place

Namaste, Hello, Hola! My name is Isabel Schank, I’m originally from Luxembourg. With a longstanding travel and living-abroad experience in Latin America, Asia (mainly Himalayas), UK and Europe. Through the challenges of adapting and adjusting to different cultures and environments, I have become more of a global citizen.

Yoga: to me is a deep practice for connecting with the core Self, and with lots of time spent in nature, it allows us to face our high-speed, high-pressure society with more peace of mind, and simply with more grounded lasting happiness. Yoga is an integral practice for physical, mental and spiritual balance, and it is the basis for a good mental health and a life worth living.

Community: I enjoy sharing the practice with like-minded people or anyone willing to bring about change in their life for more truth and well-being.

I practice:

  • Hatha Yoga (8-fold path of Patanjali)
  • Vipassana meditation
  • Walking meditation
  • Yoga Thai Massage
  • Yoga Nidra

I teach:

  • Hatha Yoga
  • Pranayama, breathing techniques
  • Meditation
  • Yoga Nidra, proper relaxation
  • walking meditation
  • kids yoga
  • pregnancy yoga
  • workshops and retreat for well-being

The yoga practice started for me some 15 years ago and today I hold a 500hrs Hatha yoga teacher certificate, from India, Thailand, Paris and Nepal, in different techniques, but mainly following the classical hatha yoga in the Sivananda tradition and with a personal Ashtanga practice. The goal of my physical practice is always towards strengthening and deepening the sitting practice of concentration and meditation (Vipassana meditation), working more with the power of mind, that’s where the magic happens! I also enjoy the fact that I keep learning with each course taught.

Breath as if your life depended on it: the deeper the breath, the fuller the life. Isabel Schank


NEW Space open now: ‘YOGA op der SCHEIER
From now on, we are happy to welcome you in our very own and special happy place for the practice. The space is an authentic barn in a traditional luxembourgish countryhouse from 1779 in Kehmen, municipality of Bourscheid, that has been home since always to our family of ancestors. We have refurbished it a minimum to preserve the unique energy of the place. Therefore its is very raw, and temperature can be quite low in winter, (bring your socks and blankets), but to us it is perfect for practice and breathing. It allows us to be present with nature in an authentic way, from back when we were living in Nepal. ‘simple living, high thinking.’

The house is surrounded by a beautiful open garden space with the ancient walnut tree in the center, the old soul of the place. In Spring and Sommer we enjoy practicing outdoors.

Interested in collaborating in this space? Please feel free to contact us and we are happy to discuss projects related to Yoga, Nature, Mindfulness, Self-development and Community.
