The first time I took part in a yoga class, I was a teenager with a passion for speedy activities like Volleyball or athletics. One day our gym teacher invited an instructor to introduce us to this “new thing” called yoga, and new it surely was back then in my home country of Austria. Unfortunately, 15-year-old me wasn’t impressed by stretching her bottom to the sky in Downward Facing Dog …

When Yve stood up on a paddling board for the first time three years ago her knees wouldn’t stop shaking. Never had she tried a surf sport before and the movement of water under her feet was a weird feeling to get used to.
