‘We practice yoga not to get better at yoga but to get better at living’

Welcome to YogAmelia

Yoga for Motherhood & Life

Hi, I’m Verena, Parental Burnout Coach and yoga, meditation and mindfulness teacher based in the Lake Geneva region (Nyon, Switzerland) and founder of Yogamelia, a nurturing and supportive community of like-minded mothers and mothers-to-be.

As a busy mum-of-one juggling a career in global health with a thriving yoga business, I’m passionate about empowering others to take charge of their wellbeing and find more calm, confidence and ease in both motherhood and life through the practice of yoga, mindfulness and Parental Burnout Coaching.


I launched Yogamelia in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic, while working full-time from home with a toddler in tow. I know all too well how easy it is to push our own needs to the bottom of the never-ending to-do list, yet I also know how vital it is for both our own wellbeing – and that of our families – to pause, release and reset.


By keeping our yoga and mindfulness practice simple and accessible (which, let’s be honest, means we’re more likely to commit to it), we can find pockets of calm throughout the day and, through that, a more enjoyable and sustainable way of being.


Wherever you are on your journey of motherhood, I am here to support you!

What I Can Help You With


Pregnancy is a time of great and rapid change, both physically and emotionally, as we prepare for birth and beyond. Through gentle prenatal yoga, breathwork and meditation techniques, I share sustainable practices that will support you during birth and beyond.


If you’ve recently become a mum, I’ll provide you with a safe space where you can reconnect to your body and rebuild strength and confidence alongside others, growing into your new role within a supportive and nourishing community.


Whether you’re a new mum or you’ve been doing this for years, yoga, meditation and mindfulness are fantastic ways to find more calm, confidence and ease in motherhood and life. Meet and connect with other like-minded women while gaining strength and space in both body and mind.

I’ve attended two Yogamelia Mini Retreats, which have been fantastic to help me reset & unwind from the stresses of juggling full-time work and motherhood. Verena is a really supportive instructor and highly responsive to the different needs and levels in the group. She offers the perfect balance of relaxing stretches and energising exercises. I’ve felt the beneficial effects of these sessions for days afterwards. The retreat is also very sociable and an opportunity to meet new people. I highly recommend Yogamelia for exercise designed to meet the needs of busy working mums.

The Release & Reset Mini Retreat with Verena was thoroughly relaxing for the body & mind. I especially appreciated the timing on a Sunday afternoon, which was convenient for ensuring childcare, allowing for some ‘me-time’ to wind down, clear my mind and rejuvenate. The final ‘cherry on the cake’ was a delicious vegan chocolate mousse to share in the company of like-minded women. Looking forward to doing this again!

The Weekend Retreat on St. Peterinsel was nothing short of amazing. I could honestly not think of a better place to relax & unwind. Verena had prepared a wonderful program of yoga and meditation sessions and I loved how we combined the focus on our mental and physical wellbeing.

I learned lots of meditation techniques and enjoyed Verena's instructions on a wide variety of yoga movements. It was a wonderful mixture of energizing, balancing, and relaxing poses. I also really enjoyed our walks outside and the delicious food that was served three times per day.

I can truly recommend the weekend retreats by Yogamelia to anyone looking for a relaxing and at the same time energizing get-away that will tend to your soul, body, and mind!

Motherhood & life is great, exhausting, full of laughter and sometimes also tears. When we take good care of ourselves, it becomes easier… at least that’s what I believe. I look forward to hearing from you!
