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.

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

Maura Pianaro


I am a certified Yoga teacher, 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. 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.

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.

Bonnie Sun

Having grown up in a Buddhism and Taoism embraced culture, Bonnie is dedicated to integrating yoga, life wisdom and mindfulness practices as the journey of self-discovery and infinite treasure.

She was introduced to yoga in 2009 while working as a financial professional in Luxembourg. Practicing over the years, she has realised that yoga is more than the practice of asana, and has witnessed the power, magic and benefits of a consistent practice both on and off the mat.

Bonnie believes that through yoga we have the opportunity to open our hearts and recognise that the essence of our being is love.

With practice we are able to love more, embrace each day, live in the moment, create joy and welcome every change and experience that comes into our life. Yoga is a beautiful way to help us create a world filled with loving kindness, compassion and love.

Her teaching style is fun and creative with great focus on the movement/breathe connection.

Bonnie’s hope as a teacher is to help each student accomplish whatever he or she is seeking, and in the end to help students discover how yoga allows us to uncover and embrace our true selves; as the radiant, healthy, blissful, and loving beings that we all are deep down.

Originally from Italy, she discovered Yoga as a pure stretching exercise to include in her running routine 7+ years ago and after moving to Luxembourg, realised Yoga was much more than that. With the years, yoga became more and more important in her life as way to ground herself, to look inwards, and for personal growth. Her vinyasa classes are strong, energetic and challenging, but adaptable for every body!

Fernanda Rubim

Fernanda grew up in Brazil and has lived for 5 years in Luxembourg. She immersed herself into yoga by attending a 200h teacher training in 2015. Patience, grounding, balance, compassion, connection are some of the qualities that the practice nurtured and continues to nurture in her. She went on to extended study with David Swenson, Bryan Kest, Jim Harrington and others. Yoga for her means connecting wholeheartedly with our physical and spiritual body, with other human beings, with nature, with whatever life offers.

Her classes combine different influences aiming for inclusion and accessibility through the offer of modifications, hands on assists and exploration of the sense of community and belonging. It is this yoke/union that she wishes to pass on in her classes.

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.

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!

Devon completed her 200 hour teacher training with BeLuminous Yoga Studio in 2012, as well as level 1 and 2 with the Baptiste Yoga Institute. In addition to yoga, Devon is a registered nurse and certified personal trainer. She has a lifelong passion for learning and continues to take many yoga intensives and trainings.

Devon's classes are challenging but spirited, focused on moving mindfully and listening to the deep intuition and alignment of your own body. Devon encourages everyone to work where they're at and discover new edges and boundaries in a supported environment. She loves to laugh, cares deeply about her yoga students, is a slow but dedicated runner, loves a delicious glass of wine and a hot bath and tries not to take any of it too seriously.

Devon’s HIIT class was great, I think people really liked it. She is seriously cool, it is nice to have some of that USA 'can do' vibe!!


Wonderful wonderful class with Devon! She put a smile on my face after a long day of work! Thank you!

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.

After practicing yoga for over 7 years,  in October 2022 I finally took the jump to join my first YTT.  I completed my first 200h in ashtanga vinyasa flow, anatomy and Ayurveda in Goa, India at Palm Trees Yoga School. Yoga for me is the perfect balance to tune in with your intuition and your physical body. I love how Yoga makes me feel in my body and in my mind. It brings a sense of calm and openness which I love sharing with my students. By teaching yoga I love to spread the joy and love that yoga brings us, how it connects us all together. It is a practice on and off the mat, that allows us to get to know ourselves on deeper levels. I am passionate about movement and mobility and the use of our body’s full range of motion.

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!

Giulia Gallo

I was born and raised in Italy, but I left in my early 20s, then moved to  London for 9 years. There I discovered Yoga, and I practised through my pregnancies and in different countries. Yoga made me discover a new approach to life, it helped me to get to know myself in many ways and put me in touch with amazing people and magical teachers from all over the world.  

After my kids were born, I decided it was the time to put together the two things I love the most: yoga and kids. I completed my 200H Yoga Teacher Training for Kids. Afterwards, I took a Mindfulness course to learn to use meditation as a way to connect with the present and to relax and let it go. Taking care of the body is important as much as taking care of our inner soul and I find meditation the best way to do so.

I'm currently training to complete the Baby OM Master (100H Training for Prenatal to 2y). My ‘Gioca’ (play) Kids yoga classes are a mix of asana, games, stories, stretching, meditation and lots of fun!! The kids of today are the adults of tomorrow and I deeply believe it's our responsibility to give them the tools to fulfil their potential.

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!


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!


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.


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.
