Watch out her happy positive attitude and smile are contagious! You can’t help but leave her classes feeling de-stressed, blissful and spiritually uplifted! Born in Oregon, USA, she lived 3 years in New York City and 6 years in Florida before coming to Luxembourg in 2005. In 2001, she discovered her passion for yoga shortly after moving to NYC and was hooked after her first class. Yoga was a natural transition from her first love  ~ ballet and jazz.  She has practiced many different styles such as Jivamukti, Ashtanga, Hatha, Sivananda, Yin, Partner and Vinyasa Flow.  Jennifer is certified in Hatha, Hormone, Partner and Yin Yoga. She is currently working on her 500hr teacher training.

She completed her 200hr yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram Neyyar Dam in southern India. Living, breathing, meditating and deepening her knowledge of this ancient practice in its birthplace of India was riveting. She loves learning and expanding her passion for yoga and regularly attends workshops, trainings and conferences with teachers from all over the world. Her teaching style is alignment focused dynamic Vinyasa Flow, while encouraging her students to respect their body’s limitations and enjoy the moment-by-moment beautiful journey of yoga. She believes that the mind-body-breath connection that we learn on the yoga mat can be applied to every moment in life. By this, we live a fuller life with greater happiness and awareness.

Jennifer founded YogaBalance in 2011 and opened the doors of her own studio location inside the Chambre des Métiers in Kirchberg on November 3rd, 2014. In February 2019, she expanded and added a second location in Merl.

Good energy and „bienveillance“ while being in the studio. Simply love practicing with you!!

MAURA EXPLORER (She/Her)

I am a certified Yoga teacher (multi-style), movement enthusiast & community builder on a mission to spread love. Deeply in love with life and the never-ending journey of growth, I dedicate my time studying and practicing yoga. Besides yoga, I love to spend time on my SUP board or do partner acrobatics, anything that keeps me moving! 

I deepened my knowledge during various trainings in Thailand, India, Germany and Indonesia. I then discovered my love for Inside Flow and never looked back. 

After 2 years of being on this journey, I became an Inside Flow Junior Teacher, and now get to assist my mentors during their teacher trainings.

In 2021, I completed another 200hrs at INSIDE YOGA with the founder Young Ho Kim, that focuses specifically on alignment and adjustment techniques. Right after that, I did my 100hrs Personal Training in Therapeutic yoga to become a certified Personal Trainer and have since attended various workshops and immersion trainings – I am an alignment geek and you can definitely expect a lot of it in my classes.

I now teach Inside Yoga style, which is modern and focuses on healthy and anatomically correct alignment. Through my classes, I also aim to create meaningful connections through touch, sharing experiences and storytelling. Empower through yoga is my mantra, my intention is to empower YOU to be and feel your absolute best – in mind, body and heart. 

My current and forever super power is my uplifting energy that I bring to each class, sprinkled with a unique sense of humour, striving to empower and elevate my students and push them towards the best version of themselves.

I believe that you can achieve anything if you put dedication, heart and soul in it and my passion for endless growth, for myself and others, is what keeps me working hard every day and motivates me to continue to learn from our Yoga Teachers worldwide.

Samuel Moldovan

After discovering yoga, I wanted to share this ancient practice with as many people as possible. My interest was and is to connect with anyone who looks in this direction.

As we mature in our own discoveries, we are able to share and make others experience or have a taste of what we have. It is human to share what is good and try to avoid what is bad.

It is just easier to be, in a healthy body, with a healthy mind, clearing some of the tendencies that used to create problems, and creating new healthy activities.

The purpose of yoga is about discovering the Self, not improving it, The Self is Perfect, it just needs to be discovered. This is also why In Yoga attainment is called Self Realization, or liberation, from the idea and the old concepts that we believe or may have about ourselves.

You can improve posture, body, mind, persona (mask), but The Self, yourself can only be discovered.

There are many things that may seem to get in the way of this; aches & pains, unfulfilled desires, traumas, misunderstandings, conscious or unconscious mind, this is also why a Guru is referred also as a dispeller of darkness. Darkness is the unknown, the misconceived, concepts that shape our life and every step we take next. Everyone in your life, who has contributed in opening your eyes, mind, heart is a Guru or a Teacher.

I am sharing my practice to the best of my knowledge and according to the situation in which we are, deeply inspired by Mooji and Sadhguru.

I rediscovered yoga by coming to Edina’s classes the last couple of weekends. She’s really taking the time to explain the sequences and has a great positive vibe! I love it and I’m already on my second pass! Definitely recommend!

Edina Alic

I started my yoga journey 16 years ago. Looking back, it has been a journey that truly changed my life. I came across some wonderful teachers that helped me become happier, healthier and more balanced.  As I continue being a student of this amazing  practice, my quest is to help others let yoga inspire them — bringing more peace and balance into their lives.

While on my journey I have explored and experienced many different styles of yoga. At the beginning I fell in love with Ashtanga and now I am totally enchanted by Gentle Flow & Yin Yoga. As we change, our practice changes but yoga is always there and we get to take whatever we need from it at any given time to grow and better our lives.  

I am a strong believer that everything we learn while practicing on the mat we can take and use in our everyday life. My classes will be dedicated to beginners and those of you who have tried and experienced yoga already but would like to dive a little deeper. Learn and experience the power of your breath, body-mind connection, proper alignment, mindfulness and meditation – bringing more awareness, health and overall happiness into your everyday life.

I just love this quote – “ Yoga does not only add years to your life, Yoga adds life to your years”. Come join me, let’s practice together, tune into our bodies, check in with our minds, find what feels good and have fun.

Alexandra Melesko

When we treat our body with respect, breathe deeply and move mindfully, we gain the capacity to connect to how we truly feel, thus finding freedom and authenticity. In my classes, I seek to create lighthearted dynamic flows based on inner focus, breathwork and movement that are accessible to everyone. Other than yoga, I am a lawyer, a travel enthusiast and an aspiring surfer!

I would like to mention that classes with Alexandra in Walferdange are one of the most amazing experiences in my life.
She is professional, helpful, friendly and her honest smile eases all the worries. She is patient, observant and sensitive to the participants’ needs – I could not imagine a better teacher for my beginnings with yoga.

I have been practicing 'grown up' yoga for over 10 years and always wanted to find a way of sharing the feeling of calm connectedness it gives me with kids. Kids are great at connectedness - with nature, with animals and friends. But sometimes with schoolwork and busy schedules they need a gentle reminder of how much fun it is to really be free in their bodies and enjoy just being with other kids. As an overgrown kid myself I need a little reminder too. Rainbow Kids Yoga is a breath of fresh air for parents wanting their child to experience the benefits of yoga whilst having fun!

Alli Perry

Why have I embraced yoga as part of my life for over 30 years? Yoga simply makes me feel really great, physically, mentally and spiritually -- and that's what I want to share with you.

You won't leave one of my classes sweaty and panting -- suffering isn't the goal! Instead you'll develop a deep sense of inner peace that comes from releasing tension and emotions stored in our muscles and tissues. What’s more, you’ll quickly start feeling stronger, more energised and better about yourself.

We won't be doing headstands and few if any of the impressive but intimidating poses you often see on the covers of yoga journals.

Instead, we'll move slowly through a sequence of highly achievable asanas, holding them for a little longer while maintaining awareness of the breath.

And I'll clearly guide and support you every step of the way, helping you to bring your body back to energetic life and vitality, in a safe and gently invigorating way.

So if you're looking for a friendly, relaxing class that doesn't take itself too seriously yet will leave you feeling great, then please come and join me!

Born in 1971 in Luxembourg, I did my studies of clinical and social psychology in Brussel from 1990 -1995. Since then, the subject of trauma and its huge impact in a person’s life interested me. Especially as I was working with migrants and further on with refugees and trauma victims as I continued to work for many years with MSF (Doctors without Borders) in war or natural disasters. Besides other therapy trainings, I did a training in EMDR (Eyes movement desensitization and reprocessing) a specific trauma therapy in 2012. Coming back home to Luxembourg, I started to work at the CHL Kannerklinik where again trauma was the main issue concerning children and adults. I got the official recognition by the Ministry of Health (collège des médecins) of Luxembourg as a psychotherapist. I became more and more interested in the bodily aspect of the trauma as I continued my own practice of Yoga. So in 2017, I did a training in Trauma Sensitive Yoga at Ingradual in Wetzlar, Germany, where Yoga is focused and adapted to trauma. I was completely excited: that was the way I wanted to go. But I needed to have more knowledge and experience in Yoga teaching, so I started an 200h Yoga teacher training at Way Yoga Institute in Wiesbaden Germany from 2018 till 2019. And here I am, happy to share my experiences with you.

I've done yoga with Jennifer for a year now and I've enjoyed every single session with her. The classes are fun even though they can be challenging. I like the light and cheerful atmosphere, which differs a lot from some other classes I've been to in the past. You feel you're actually allowed to laugh, which is relaxing. Jennifer keeps walking around, adjusting postures, which I appreciate a lot. And it's also nice to get the unexpected encouragement here and there :-)  Strongly recommended!

Michaela

YogaBalance is the yoga studio I've been searching for in Luxembourg and I'm so happy I found it.. After a few months of classes, I can't recommend Jennifer and the other teachers highly enough. Jennifer has a wonderful attitude and a structured, fun and dynamic way of teaching so that you leave every class feeling a little bit lighter, brighter and benefitting from that great energy that Jennifer brings with her every time. Class times are also really great. Thank you YogaBalance!

Aisling

As a guy, I didn't think yoga was for me, but I'm really liking the classes and teachers at YogaBalance. I've found that the movements are really helping me have a stronger core and my back pain disappeared after just a few classes.

Patrick

This is a great yoga school with wonderful teachers; passionate, knowledgeable, humble and kind. Every single class I've attended so far left me feeling blissful, empowered and centered. Thank you to all. You are amazing! Namaste.
