♥ happy hippie family ♥
Bettina "Betty" Schindele
My Yoga spirit is empathic, wild, spiritual, loving, funny and kind. Yoga came into my life in the age of 17 when I started working in hospitality and I had to deal with my lower back issues. In a dark time of my life, Yoga safed me and absolutely transformed my life into better. I’m forever grateful and my personal mission is to give back everything I know and spread the light of Yoga in my home country austria and yes all around the world 😉 To bring people back into their light, to walk the path ahead with kindness and gratitude.
What makes me smile is endless… The beauty of mother nature, animals, making other people smile, my loved ones, my yoga students, sunshine, the sound of the rain, flowers, music, singing,traveling, dancing, drawing, baby animals, disney movies..
Where there is shadow, there is light.
That defines my past and the path which lead me to live the philosophy of Yoga, off the mat.
I was living abroad for about 10 years in London, Paris and Montenegro. But before my time in India my life was a crazy and unhealthy balance between working and partying.
Short words: I seriously hit the ground in the age of 25 ( and I made a decision for my health and a new life. I left everything behind me and booked a Yoga teacher training and a one way ticket to India, ALONE!
The first time ever in India and I completely fell in love with (nearly J) everything ! So I stayed there until my visa expired. The healing power of Yoga and the transformational aspect I experienced was life changing for me.
Since then I return to India once a year for Yoga Teacher Trainings to keep studying and growing. And of course to visit my guru and the indian family I’ve met there.
And here I am. I never planned to be a Yoga Teacher and now i can say I do what I love and love what I do out of my heart.
I‘m teaching Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow, Yin and Yoga Nidra. I love chanting and to guide powerful and healing meditations.
I created my own guidline for a happier and healthier life.
Everyday is a new beginning, a new opportunity to make the world happier and more meaningful. To support each other and every creature on this planet and to treat everything and everyone with respect and a kind loving heart.
Let’s spread the light of Yoga together with the beautiful community of happyhippie.yoga to remember people how beautiful their smile is.
