 About your Host:

Yoga Orchid and Yoga Orchid Yinstitute (the yoga teacher training arm of the business) are the brainchild of Regina Kerschbaumer.

Brought up in South Africa, Regina (Regi) travelled to Israel, Turkey and Europe after finishing her studies. In 1990 she met and married her German /South African husband, Andreas in London.

Regi attended her first yoga class in 1997 and was blown away by the intensity of the workout. A mother of two toddlers at the time, she needed physical exercise as well as something to ground herself mentally and emotionally. Through yoga, Regi found balance, better health, and an inner stillness. It strengthened her body and allowed her to simultaneously relax and focus. As she says:

"I found yoga, or yoga found me, and I have never looked back."

When her teacher retired in 2003, Regi realised that yoga had become a way of life and that she wanted to help other people share the experience. So, she decided to train as a yoga teacher.

In September 2006 – after two years of teaching Iyengar inspired yoga and two decades as an alternative therapist – Regi met American Yin Yoga Master Paul (the master mind behind Yin Yoga) and his wife Suzee Grilley during a week-long Yin & Yang Yoga teacher training course. She felt as if she had discovered the ‘link’ between her knowledge of meridian therapy, reflexology and yoga. And realised her true calling in Yoga – as a Yin Yoga teacher.

Regi’s yoga style now blends both a Yin sequence of long held poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with a Yang Practice – a gentle flow and standing postures. Although she practices both Yin and Yang styles of yoga, she especially likes to teach Yin yoga because the deep stretching and long holds provide a meditative practice that really opens the body and provides a space to explore the body’s inner landscapes.

Regi is also a qualified Beauty Technologist, Aromatherapist, Reflexologist and Bowen Therapist. She has a thirst for knowledge and is always adding to her professional expertise with additional training and development. She regularly attends yoga teaching courses in the UK and abroad to keep her teaching inspired and up-to-date for the past 15 years and has done over 2000 hours of Yoga, Meditations and Mindfulness training.

Regi derives great physical satisfaction from yoga but also, more importantly; it helps her to deal with life’s twists and turns. Her biggest hope is to inspire her students, as other teachers have inspired her.
