About Josefina
Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist

Hola! My name is Josefina Eliggi, I am a certified pre- and postnatal Yoga teacher.

I grew up in Argentina and moved to Switzerland in 2011. I studied fine arts and fashion and textile design in Buenos Aires, and completed a master of arts in design in Lucerne (CH).

I took my first Yoga class back in 2002. I started practicing more regularly during my studies in Switzerland in 2012. In subsequent years I did my first 200-hour teacher training course and got certified as a pre- and postnatal yoga teacher. To date I have completed over 400 hours of training.

In 2015 I became pregnant with my first child. I tried prenatal yoga during this special time and discovered a new dimension to the discipline. I had a difficult birth that marked my passage into motherhood. Yoga then became a vehicle to heal the trauma of my birth experience and come to terms with how things unfolded. And although I was never particularly fit and didn’t have a lot of spare time, I managed to establish a daily yoga practice as part of my self-care routine.

Now I’m dedicated to helping women to accept the changes that occur during pregnancy, to navigate the first months after childbirth and to rediscover themselves in their new role as mothers.

Aside from Yoga, I love going for walks, textiles, design, art, books, Indian food and travelling with my family.
