Practising and teaching Yoga is a way of life.

The Yoga Training Zurich offers you
the ideal base on your path.

Hi, we are Chris, Clive and Lea - your team at The Yoga Training Zurich.
We give everything for our students - starting with mentoring and ending with teaching.

Our training is not just for those who wish to walk away as teachers,
but also for those looking to deepen self-inquiry.

In 2005, Clive launched the International Yoga Teacher Program in collaboration with AIRYOGA - at that time in Switzerland the first training recognized by the Yoga Alliance. Alongside Lance Schuler and Glenn Ceresoli, Clive himself also acted as a teacher. This program was the first of a series of other trainings conducted under Clive's direction in Switzerland and Germany. The last training under the name International Yoga Teacher Program in collaboration with Alexa Le was successfully completed in early 2020. With Lea and Chris a new team with a fresh wind formed in spring 2020. Together they successfully launched the new project The Yoga Training Zurich.

Clive Radda

Clive was born in 1968 in Barcelona, Spain, and grew up in India and Ibiza. At a young age his father already taught him Hatha and Jñana Yoga, whilst his mother introduced him to the art of healing .

After training martial arts for ten years in Brazil, Switzerland, Thailand, China and Taiwan, Clive began practicing Iyengar yoga in Thailand under a Taoist yogi. For more than twelve years Clive Sheridan was his teacher.

In 2002 Clive completed the Yoga Arts Teacher Training in Bali and Byron Bay. Later, two further trainings with Ana Forrest in the USA were added. Since 2006 Clive has been a student of Glenn Black and participated in his training in Costa Rica. Clive has been teaching yoga for over 20 years and has shared his knowledge in many large fitness centers in Zurich as well as in well-known yoga studios in Zurich and Switzerland.

Clive teaches physically challenging, intense classes that incorporate a wide variety of movement. He places as much emphasis on conscious breathing as he does on wearing a smile and having joy - whether on the yoga mat or in life in general.

Clive's gratitude particularly goes to:


  • Clive Sheridan – for the tantras, pranayamas and pushes

  • Louisa Sear - for inspiration and Ashtanga

  • BNS Iyengar - for the «Indian way» and Ashtanga

  • Lance Schuler - for conveying the positive power of asanas

  • Glenn Ceresoli - for the «correct» alignment

  • Martyn Hoogstra - for the humbleness and a good deep flow

  • Ana Forrest - for teaching how to teach and for showing the power of core training

  • Dharma Mittra - for illustrating how to be physical and spiritual at the same time

  • Glenn Black - for eye- and body-openers


  • Khyapa Baba - for the opportunity to finally meet a true guru for tantra and tantric meditations

Yoga for Lea is not only the practice of asana. She practices and teaches yoga just as passionately as she is professionally committed to helping socially marginalized people. For Lea, yoga is a holistic art of living, a philosophy of being, a constant examination of the way of life on and off the mat.

Her practice and classes are influenced by the traditional teachings of Ashtanga Yoga, as well as her yin yoga teacher training.

For Lea, teaching means to be able to pass on the transformation of her knowledge from teaching and experience to her students. Despite all the seriousness for the practice, whoever knows Lea knows that there is a lot of laughter with and by her.

In addition to her active assistance, Lea is responsible for the smooth running and organization of The Yoga Training Zurich. She is happy to receive your questions and concerns and helps with the preparation and follow-up of the material from the training program.

Chris likes to deal with the confrontation of being and life. For him yoga does not end with rolling up the mat, he strives to integrate the teachings of yoga into his everyday life.

His practice is enriched by a spirit of exploration and experimentation. Meditation and pranayama have long since complemented and determine his daily disciplines. His teaching is influenced by his creative spirit of discovery and yet remains yoga.

Chris is continuously interested in expanding and deepening his knowledge. The fascination of the subject and the enrichment of experiences finally led to the decision to pass it on.

In the team of The Yoga Training Zurich., Chris has taken over the responsibility for the aesthetics and is involved in the structural shaping of the training. Like Lea, he will assist, be the contact person on site and support the participants during their training.

After studying history, art history, philosophy and English literature at university, his interest shifted to the ancient teachings of India, especially Buddhism and Advaita Vedanta which took him to India and North America, where he deepened his knowledge of yoga, Zen meditation and Darshans with Advaita teachers. From Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Michael obtained the teaching license for Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India. His current teachers are Richard Freeman and Doug Keller. After the death of his Zen teacher Daido Loori Roshi, Michael started focusing on Vipassana meditation according to the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw.
