Myriam Von Knobelsdorff
Myriam, founder and owner of House of Yoga is an international, very intuitive person who believes in holistic healing. After studying Hospitality Management and Events in Switzerland and Luxury Brand Management in London, she went on to learn Wedding Planning in Vancouver, Canada and in London. While in the UK, she continued her studies in interior design at the Inchbald School of Design, followed by a course in Integrative Nutrition at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. Since July 2016 she is a certified integrative nutrition health coach. Myriam shared her health, wellbeing and lifestyle experiences writing articles for QMIN, a magazine published in Doha, Dubai and Beirut.
A workshop in Teothiuacan, Mexico in 2014 with the Ruiz family turned Myriam’s life upside down and made her realise that life is now and that one should follow their dreams and passions. Myriam’s quest for a healthy soul, body and mind took her all the way to Hawaii where she did a 200HR Yoga teacher training (Hatha, Vinyasa Flow) at the Maui Yoga Shala with her teacher Nadia Toraman. More recently, she completed a teacher training in Germany for Barre.
She does what her heart tells her to do and not what is expected of her. She believes that strength and beauty come from within. She loves the world and its beauty, travelling and discovering cultures, different types of cuisines and meeting new and different people. Myriam is driven by the thought of fairness and equilibrium. She is very grateful everyday for her family, dogs, friends and opportunities which life has given her.
Today, she wants to share what she has learned and spread the love and experience. She is tired of seeing so many people who are sick and upset, stressed and unhappy, swallowed by their daily routine when a simple break could revive them. Myriam wants to share the peace she has gained through the years and help people grow old, be happy and healthy. House of Yoga Luxembourg is the physical result of that pursuit.
Eileen Von Knobelsdorff
Eileen, RYT 500 Yoga Alliance certified & co-owner of House of Yoga, completed her 200 YTT in Thailand (Indian school Mahi Power Yoga) & her 300 YTT in Sri Lanka (with Dr Ganesh Rao, Mathieu Boldron & Annie Au). She was drawn towards Yoga at the age of 5. What began as a hobby, led her to realize that Yoga is more than just the practice of asana, but to create a space to deepen her inner connection of body & mind, a sense of inner calm & self-acceptance.
Eileen received a Master degree in International Business & was working for several years in the corporate world. Yet, she was always convinced that “you are never feeling truly satisfied by work until you are satisfied by life”. This was her true call to make the leap to pursue her passion for teaching Yoga. She is grateful to be able to share her love for yoga, helping people to reconnect with body & mind and improve their well-being.
Travelling throughout the world, Eileen lived and practised Yoga in 9 different countries & volunteered for an NGO in Ecuador. This passionate dancer speaks fluently 6 languages. Being a health conscious person, she loves to eat healthily & experience alternative healing methods. Yoga is being one of the holistic powerful healing methods that she believes can be beneficial for just everybody.
Eileen’s passion and style for Yoga are infectious, bringing various elements of flexibility, strength and balance. Her goal is to share an accessible practice, encouraging students to break through their perceived limitations both on & off the mat.
