our awesome stuff

Indira Holzer
Yoga, Ecstatic Dance & Acro Yoga

Co-Founder

She teaches kids and young adults German and Spanish. She is a Yoga teacher as often as she can. Together with her life partner every now and then she dedicates her free time to music. That’s the every day life of Indira. For a few years now she doing events and courses with the lovely crew of the Yoga Fam Collective in Vienna. All begann with a Hatha Yoga teachers training but she quickly begann to like new styles and genres. When she does Yoga alone, she lets herself get inspired by Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Shakti Dance, Budokon Yoga and Hatha Yoga. Movement helps her with hearing her body and finding her very natural pulse. To her yoga is care and curiosity towards one self and the world we live in.

Cristina Mercedes
Hatha Yoga Teacher, Singer and Sound Massage Practitioner

Core Team

She has practiced Yoga for 5 years and is now Soundhealing Instructor in Vienna. While music has been with her throughout her life, her journey to alternative sounds started two years ago in Bali when she participated in a soundhealing meditation. Since then, she has never let go of the fascination of singing bowls, gongs, koshis and other similar instruments. In 2018 she began the training as a sound massage practitioner and now, among other things, designs her yoga classes with sound travels and soundbath meditations.

What fascinates her so much? Whether it's yoga or sounds, each time is a new experience in its own way and that's exactly what she wants to share. Connecting meditation with sounds creates a connection between creativity and the inner self during a state in which space and time are lost.

During the soundbath meditation, let your mind rest and carry it away from the sounds into deeper layers of consciousness. Expect the unexpected.

Attila Vadoc
Asana-Trainer / Movement-Monkey / Vegan Chef

Core Team

Zur Yoga- bzw. Asana-Praxis fand Atila vor 4 Jahren. Zuerst war es nur eine neue Bewegungsart, aber schon nach kurzer Zeit entdeckte er die tiefere Bedeutung dieser Philosphie, die weit über die körperliche Betätigung hinausgeht. Seitdem praktiziert er regelmäßig Asana, kombiniert mit verschiedensten Bewegungsrichtungen.
Nebenher arbeitet Attila als veganer Koch, wo er speziell in der ayurvedischen Küche zuhause ist. So hat er entdeckt, wie wichtig es ist, nicht nur durch körperliche Bewegung & spirituelle Praxis auf das individuelle Wohlbefinden zu achten – „you are what you eat“.
Die Anpassung der Asanas steht bei Attila stets im Vordergrund - um dir die Bewegung zugänglich zu machen, achtet er auf die Einzigartigkeit deines Körpers und gibt gerne Tipps, wie du in deiner Routine an deiner Asana-Praxis arbeiten kannst.
Es erwartet dich eine PowerYoga-Stunde, bei der Spaß und das Wohlbefinden im Vordergrund stehen, zusätzlich spielerisch verknüpft mit verschieden Bewegungsrichtungen wie zum Beispiel Naturaletics & Primal Movement.

Juliane Kamtner
Photographer

aka Juliane Kamtner Press Photography

Im a photographer from austria, with a passion for documenting human rights issues around the world. The central thread of my work is a constant effort to tell genuine stories of people's lives, however difficult they may be for us to hear. My first project concentrated on the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Since then my style has evolved, and my focus has now shifted towards documenting some of the worst tragedies and injustices of our time - those human rights violations that befall our most innocent brothers and sisters.

Beside all those pain and action i follow the good energy of YogaFam. – Enjoying the happy, peaceful time with those special humans by freezing some of their good-vibes-moments with my camera.

Stefan Hofer
DJ und Acroyogi

Co-Founder

Ist seit Beginn bei YOGA FAM dabei und unterstützt das Team stets bei der Eventplanung und als Techniker vor Ort.
Seine Hauptaufgaben sind jedoch die musikalische Untermalung der Techno-Yoga Sessions und die Leitung von Acroyoga Workshops.
Gemeinsam mit seiner Lebenspartnerin Indira und seiner sehr guten Freundin Sarah hat er bereits viele Techno-Yoga Sessions in verschiedenen Locations in Wien realisiert. Neben seinem Mitwirken bei YOGA FAM ist Stefan DJ und Co-Founder der Labels Frieden & Liebe und Abstract Sounds.

Anna Oberrauner
Meditation Instructor

Core Team

She is 26 years old and lives in Vienna since 2011. After finishing her studies in economics she decided to leave this kind of world behind and go look for something more. More meaning. More depth. When she came across meditation and its many facettes, she knew she found a powerful and amazing tool in terms of self development and self reflection. Meditation opens our hearts and helps us work from our hearts, for our hearts with our hearts. And for her that's the most valuable work we can do.

Sarah Lechner
Yogatrainerin

Co-Founder

Mit jungen 18 Jahren schon hat Sarah zum Yoga gefunden. Ihre Liebe zum yogischen Spirit brachte sie zu ihrer ersten Ausbildung in Nepal. Eine zweite in Wien folgte und sie gründete gemeinsam mit ihrer Freundin Indira das Kollektiv YOGA FAM. Schon lange ist Yoga ein befreiender Kontrast zum wiener Stadtleben für sie. Am liebsten bewegt sie sich mit fließenden und tänzerischen Bewegungen zu tiefen Downtempobeats. "Durch Yoga kann ich am besten meiner Energie Ausdruck verleihen und sie nach Außen bringen." Ihr Yogastil ist inspiriert vom Vinyasa Flow, Improvisationstanz und Inside Flow. Eine bedachte Musikauswahl zeichnen ihre Stunden aus.

Doris Swoboda
Acroyogini & Kleidertauschparty Host

Core Team

Hat eine Grafikdesign Ausbildung und einen Bachelor in Kultur- und Sozialanthropologie. Derzeit macht sie noch den Master in Kultur- und Sozialanthropologie weiter. Kleidertauschpartys hat sie bisher nur in ihren privaten vier Wänden betrieben. Jetzt wagt sie es, damit an die Öffentlichkeit zu gehen. Damit will sie einen Schritt gegen die Wegwerfgesellschaft und für nachhaltige Mode machen. Es soll ein Miteinander entstehen, wo sich die Menschen auf verschiedenen Ebenen austauschen und kennenlernen können. Bei einem Acroyoga Kurs lernte sie Indira (Yoga Lehrerin & Veranstalterin) & Stefan (DJ) kennen. Gemeinsam hatten sie viel Freude beim Training und sie wurden zu einem guten Team. In kurzer Zeit entwickelte sich eine tolle Freundschaft und sie verbündete sich mit all den lieben Leuten der Yoga Fam!

Daniel Sun
DJ und Cacao Ritual Guide

aka Urucum Musica

URUCUM is a downtempo project led by Daniel, a young Austrian Producer and Dj who got inspired through his travels to Latin America to translate the insights he collected there through living, connecting and working with the tribes and their sacred native medicine into organic-electronic music for the European crowd. The result is a special heart-opening and roots-nurturing accoustic gift from the etherical into the physical, that invites us to dance, pray, dream, heal and fly high with the mission to create togetherness for a world that offers peace, love and respect for all! Packed with flutes, hand drums and sacred chants URUCUM guides us through a sound-journey that sends us directly into a dreamscape of a tropical forest atmosphere. He is a skillful talent who published his amazing downtempo and medicine music on labels like NUMA, Resueño, Cosmovision Records, Ohxala Records, Random Collective, Wanderlust Musica & Mónada.

Katharina Trattner
Yogatrainerin

Family Member

Zum ersten Mal ist Kathi schon vor über zehn Jahren mit Yoga in Berührung gekommen. Seither hat sie in verschiedenen Studios weltweit unterschiedliche Stilrichtungen praktiziert und war auch für längere Zeit in einem Ashram in Indien, wo sie noch tiefer in die Materie Yoga eintauchen konnte. Den Ausgleich zum Alltag findet die herzliche Oberösterreicherin vor allem in der Meditation, beim Praktizieren von Vinyasa und Yin Yoga und in langen Spaziergängen mit ihrem Hund.

"Schon immer war es mein Traum meine Leidenschaft für Yoga zu teilen und mein Wissen an so viele Menschen wie möglich weiter zu geben. Ich liebe es Leute zu motivieren und ihnen zu zeigen, wie sie alles aus ihren Körper und ihrer Persönlichkeit herausholen können.“

Adriana Kranebitter
Graphic Designer

aka Adriana Minsky

I'm a graphic designer originally from Salzburg.
Creativity is an important expression for me and a feeling of freedom.
My inspirations are people, feelings and places I have been.
My passion is to visualize ideas and create feelings.

Julia Gassner
Macramee Workshop Host

Family Member

Student teacher in various subjects.
Loves shared creativity and innovation. She experiences internal joy in the process of creating something new and special with her own hands. She sees crafting not only as a tool that helps her relax and take away stress but also as a wonderful activity to share with others.

Nicole Taborsky
Essential Oils / Thai Yoga Body Work / Coaching

aka Soulistic Linz

The clinical social worker has always been interested in alternative healing methods and the use of herbs and plant essences. She understands the human being as a holistic and energetic system and loves to explore the causes of certain physical and emotional states rather than merely alleviating their symptoms in the short term. So she sees life as a great adventure and its challenges as a way of personal reflection and development. Essential oils - the soul of the plants - can immensely support one's personal journey through one's own emotional jungle and make the journey more pleasant and light-footed. And by the way, many oils have immense health benefits ;-)

But Nicole not only likes to work with essential oils - she tries to help people to explore their emotional life through coaching, Thai yoga bodywork and shamanic cocoa ceremonies and tries to make them accessible for personal development and awareness.

Lukas Lenhardt
Video Producer

aka Luke Lenhardt Production

Good friend of YOGA FAM. Loves making videos. Simplicity.

Andrea Fleischanderl
Ayurveda Köchin

Family Member

Systemische Lebensberaterin und Mutter von Indira (Yogalehrerin und Mitbegründerin von YOGA FAM) ist eine leidenschaftliche Köchin. Inspiriert durch mehrere abenteuerliche Indienreisen seit 1990 zaubert sie köstliche und energetisierende Kreationen aus pikanten und süßen asiatischen Zutaten.

Sie liebt an der ayurvedischen Küche vor allem das uralte Wissen über die Heilkraft von Lebensmitteln, Kräutern und Gewürzen und die energiespendende Wirkung durch die ausgewogene Kombination aus allen Bestandteilen.

Die wundervolle Welt der indischen Lehren von Ernährung und Körperübungen (Hatha Yoga) begeistert sie seit fast 30 Jahren, in Zeiten als es noch extrem schwer war, in Wien eine Yogalehrerin zu finden :-)

Sie ist überzeugt von der wohltuenden Wirkung von Yoga und Ayurveda auf Körper, Geist und Seele und wird einen (über)sinnlichen Genussbeitrag zum Festival liefern.

Christian Resch
Webdesigner

aka Linz Media GmbH

// Silence is golden.

Mario Mayer
Pflanzendaddy @viennesejungle.

aka Viennese Jungle Plant Blog

Durch jahrelanges Herumexperimentieren wurde Mario mit seinen nur mehr als 80 Zimmerpflanzen zum Profi was Zimmerpflanzenpflege angeht. Um andere für seine Liebe zu Zimmerpflanzen zu begeistern, vermehrt er seine Pflanzen ständig, um diese an Freunde, Familie und neue Gesichter weiterzugeben. Mario arbeitet als Sprachenlehrer untertags und den Rest der Zeit zeigt er seine grünen Lieblinge auf Instagram (@viennesejungle), weswegen er sich mit Indira von YOGA FAM zusammengetan hat, um andere für sein Hobby zu begeistern.

Let’s make this work! Your daily spare time matters. Use it well. Want a Yoga Fam class at your workplace? Get in touch with us! We’re happy to hear from you and your company!

 

Y O G A. B E F O R E. A N D. A F T E R. W O R K.
Get your day started with a dynamic Vinyasa flow, soft Yin yoga or a vivid yoga dance session. Strengthen and prepare your back muscles for some upcoming hours at your desk at the office with yoga practices mindfully focusing on your back. Intentionally set your focus and your mood for the day with an inspiring morning meditation.
End the day with a relaxing Yin yoga session and let go what does not serve you anymore or end the day with a soothing sound healing meditation.
We got you – no matter what it is that you want in any given moment. We are here for you and your needs. Find some more information as you read along.

As we all know our mindset determines how we approach every-day situations when it comes to your job or our private lives. Gratefully, there is a way you can practice this so-called mindset. If you want to live more from your heart you can get some more information about the YOGA FAM’S heart meditations. If you want to grow in confidence, we’ll strengthen your center with the pure power of thoughts – or maybe you want none of that but to quit thinking for a while. The process of meditation has many approaches and our consciousness has many faces!

V I N Y A S A. F L O W.
While practicing the YOGA FAM Vinyasa flow, we unite the sun salutations (?) with various practices from Hatha Yoga in order to create a “flow zone” for every single inch of your body. Simultaneously your organs will be stimulated while your immune system is going to be improved. To keep things interesting and inspiring, each session will focus on different aspects mentally as well as physically. Moving our bodies is the center of attention and to finish off, we will accompany you through a deeply relaxing Shavasana. Enjoy the journey!

Y O G A. D A N C E.

 

We spread our wings, the Earth is shaking, the beat is our flow…your steps are infinite and your spirit is free!

 

To start off, it is all about arriving in your body. It is about going inside, connecting with your heart and your intuition. Our Yoga dance flows create stability and flexibility and will make you feel more and think less.
We will offer enough space and freedom to make sure you can let your creativity in motion run free. We will create a safe space where you can unapologetically be who you are and let go of what holds you back. With the support and company of our techno and rhythm DJs you can offer your wild, intuitive movement the space it needs until you reach the point of letting of your mind and of your ego. We celebrate a sober exctasy, where we stimulate and support the production of endorphins and focus on tensions in your muscle and conjunctive tissue.

SAVE SPACE/DRUG FREE ZONE/REAL FEEL

A N I M A L. M O V E M E N T.
At the YOGA FAM’S Animal Movement Yoga we let your body flow like a fish through water, jump like a wild monkey, fly free like a bird, stamp your feet in the ground like a bull and dance like a snake. Vinyasa Flow combined with animal moves are the base of the choreographer and from mother-nature-inspired music is the engine and force that we use to encourage movement and power.

 

Be your real powerful self!

 

In the huzzle and buzzle of Vienna’s city life we sometimes lose our precious connection to our inner-selves. At YOGA FAM’S Animal Yoga it is all about coming back and re-connecting to our true selves, our instincts and our intuition.
We need to breathe, float, jump and dance back to our basics!

Are you regularly spending most of your day in front of a computer not being aware of your body posture? Do you have to carry heavy stuff around from time to time? Do you spend most of your day in a seated position and do you want to make sure that you remain backpain-free? Then join our specific yoga sessions for your back. We will loosen and free ourselves from tensions, exercise and strengthen the muscles surrounding your back bones and your spine. Let’s make sure you’re all-time ready for your job!

S O U N D. H E A L I N G.
Whether it is yoga or sound – every session is a new, inspiring experience that we want share with you. When meditation and sound merge, your inner-being connects with the source of creativity.
Neither time nor space matters anymore due to the conscious state you are in. During the YOGA FAM’S sound meditations, you can rest and observe your mind and dive into a deeper level of your own being. Expect the unexpected!

______________________

Y I N.
Find your balance with/at the YOGA FAM’S Yin Yoga sessions. Holding and remaining in soft Yoga positions helps finding the deep relaxation your body desires. In Asanas we will often work with props as yoga blocks, bolsters, belts etc. to take out the exhaustion and therefore support to fully enjoy and feel the stretch. It is about time to let go.

About Yogafam

We are one big family.

Who we are? What we do?

YOGA FAM is a collective formed by some Yoga trainers and musicians in both the fields of acoustic sound and electronic music. We work holistically with the principles of conscious movement, healing sound, use of space and building community. Since spring 2019 we host classes, larger events and festivals at Vienna’s techno clubs (Pratersauna), workshop houses (WUK) and art spaces (NAU). However, we move like a travelling circus and you can find us at a lot of different places all around the city. Most of our classes are single event based.

***** Our Philosophy


We’d like to face the destructive elements which exist in the health of individuals and the health of our society. We’d like to find and fund more sensitive human behaviour. To us Yoga means to strengthen our personal reflection skills and to develop a sense of tact for our environment.

After all this serious background we’d like to shout: FEAR LESS, HOPE MORE!

***** Yoga with electronic music?

Techno music and the concept of a techno rave are very much related to ancient drum rhythm cultures and their ecstatic dance spirit. We appreciate the collective consciousness of a techno rave and strive to include this modern mood in our movement practice. To us body movement is always nurtured by space and vibration. Let’s get creative with what is already out there in the urban sphere!


Check out our Yoga Soundsessions with movement by Indira Holzer and live music by Stefan Hofer, Cristina Mercedes and special guests. We flow through Asanas accompanied by a mix of acoustic and electronic sounds. The beat is our anchor while we move with the waves.

The Yoga Fam Festival Temple

***** Why a festival?


Vienna: A world of brutal sounds, colors and interactions. Let us create a place where we find strength! AN URBAN TEMPLE!

Positivity and a loving way of life is what we need to construct a world we’d like to live in. LET’S CLEBRATE OURSELVES TO CELEBRATE OTHERS!

***** What is the CHARITY YOGA FAM festival?

At the charming workshop and community house WUK WIEN we create a whole day of Yoga classes, self care and crafting workshops. From soundbath-meditation over knitting to a cacao ritual there’s going to be a lot of options to relax, to learn new stuff and to power up. Check out the TIMETABLE at „Next Festival“ ->

We give our best to create as many spots as possible! If there is no more space for you in one of the classes just a have a homemade chai and a chat outside in the sun!

There is another CHILL-OUT-AREA indoor with an exchange stock for clothing and plants! At the second-hand-area we can revive our never worn clothes, give them to someone else and CELEBRATE DIVERSE BODIES AND RE-USE-ABILITY!

***** All for free?

The YOGA FAM Crew works voluntarily and puts a lot of extra love into the festival project. We are happy about each donation because we’ll be able to support our charity organizations even better! 20 % of the proceeds will be donated by us to the Australian wildlife aid organization WIRE and to the cacao farmers of the Amazonas valley. The surplus of clothes will go directly to Africa via a friend who has a private connection there. With the rest of the proceeds we’d hope to help the city’s energy level with future happenings. Enjoy a full day of workshops, second-hand, soul food and community! ♥
