“It’s not about the perfect posture, the perfect outfit, the perfect body. We often associate yoga with Instagram pictures featuring young people who appear thin and perfectly balanced. And then we think: I’m not flexible, not strong enough. It creates inhibitions and puts people off. That’s where my idea comes in. I want to motivate everyone to improve their lives through yoga,” says Isabel Schank. Mental health is her priority: body, mind, spirit and energy working in harmony.
Isabel Schank’s yoga trails offer a sensory experience in nature. You’ll feel present. Guided yet completely self-confident. There’s no pressure, no judgment. It’s a spiritual experience.
The trails leading up to the yoga areas are part of the experience. Luxembourg’s beautiful landscapes, especially up north, are not just a pretty backdrop. “I want to show my clients how to move with awareness in nature,” says Isabel. “But I also want us to be mindful of local cultural history. For example, Ardennes horses used to pull tree trunks across the forest floor and there were also tanneries here.” Joining Isabel’s trails means doing yoga on the narrow Molberlee ridge, or near Misärshaff, Bourscheid and other picturesque places up north.
