The pace of my classes is slow yet powerful. I intentionally want to give my students time to listen to their bodies needs and adjust their postures accordingly. There is balance between structure and choice/freedom for my students to have their own voice be heard within. I also strive for my students to come away with a new found joy of movement, a deeper acceptance and self love of their body, mind and spirit. No prior experience is required.
Sibylle Jud co-founded Iris with her husband Paul Lichtenberg in 2009. Born and raised in Switzerland, her journey of self-discovery has brought her to New York City at the age of 21, where she was using the camera as a way of looking inward while looking out at the world around. Her quest to go deeper and expand her vision beyond the physical world eventually opened up the world of yoga through immersions and teacher trainings. Her dream of creating a place for people to gather and heal in community, where authentic relationships are at the core of transformation, became real when she and her husband decided to move out of the city to create Iris and start a family. She is the mother of two boys, Teo and Sebastian, who, together with their friends, fill Iris with their joy, laughter, and creativity.
She is a certified Feminine Power transformational coach and facilitator. She is very excited to share the tools she received through the trainings with her community here at Iris.
