Switzerland has always been one of our favorite places, that has the best stereotypes; chocolate, mountains, lakes, views, cleanliness, a mixture of languages, beautiful people and a calm calm vibe...
This has been a year of following dreams here at Ripple, and as part of that, we've been sending Adva (Ripple's head designer and owner) to all the places on her wishlist. To be fair, she has been to Switzerland before, but this trip had a very distinct intention to practice yoga out in nature and in studios, to meet other yogis, and to photograph Ripple yogis in incredible locations.
Here are two yogis we met and loved (and more in our next blog post!).
We find many of our yogis/models on social media, but Lygia was something special. We have been following her on Instagram for a while, and contacted her for collaboration as we loved her pictures, her inspirations, and her honest, heart-filled texts.
"It’s human nature to want to share the things we’re passionate about with one another. This can be especially true when the thing we’re passionate about something that has radically improved our lives."
Lydia is a Brazilian yogi living in Switzerland, teaching, inspiring, spreading good vibes. She invited us to do the photoshoot by her house, near a beautiful forest with a lovely view of Zurich. It's easy to see why we were inspired.
The next yogi we met, Florina, writes an amazingly useful blog reviewing yoga studios and classes all over Zurich.
