Kathrin Largo

Co-Founder & Circle Facilitator

My name is Kathrin Largo. I am a mother of two teenage boys and our family grew when I took in two foster children, a boy and a girl in 2018.

We run our little tribe with a lot of openness, trust and humour for the things out of our control.

In my early teenage years, I followed my dream to become a dancer. The immense pressure and performance stress coming with this path made me lose the passion for this goal.

After years of suffering in office jobs, I followed another dream and left daily life in Switzerland behind in order to live in Costa Rica with my then husband and my two little boys.

After two years, I returned back to Switzerland and followed the next dream: I attended a two year education in script writing.

In 2017, another vision for my life was put into action and I attended a Yoga teacher training.

All these paths, all my effort to follow my dreams without pressuring me already in a fix life goal let me to where I am now: Weaving together all the gifts, insights and wisdom my paths gave me and arriving in what I would call my purpose:

Bringing people closer again so that we may learn and grow with each other by sharing and deepening wisdom held by the collective.

 

Thus every one of us may arrive at a meaningful place from where giving back to society is being felt as a calling and therefore becomes effortless and transformative.

Mario Elsässer

Circle Facilitator

At the age of 19, due to an intense crisis of life and meaning, I started practicing Hatha & Bhakti Yoga, meditating and turning to spirituality. Shortly after, I moved to an ashram for two and a half years. There, I experienced states of consciousness in meditation that fundamentally changed my understanding of reality, truth and myself. In the last 2 decades I have been intensively engaged in:

 

 

            - Breath & Meditation

            - Yoga & Vedanta

            - Astrology & Anthroposophy

            - Theosophy & Magic

            - Tantra & Sexuality

            - Embodiment & Massage

                  

Experiences like loneliness, loss and defeat have disappointed me and forced me to look inward, learning to deal with myself and my life in depth. Meanwhile, I see all this repetitive failures as the greatest gift this world has given me.

Melanie Gerber

Co-Founder

I'm Melanie Gerber – wife, mother of two, Yogini & nutritionist and a woman dedicated to the path of conscious, connected and happy living.

 

As a proud mom of two and a loving wife, I'm passionate about healthy, easy-to-prepare food for the whole family.

 

Being blessed with the teachings of yoga from early childhood, I know about the power of yoga to make life easier, happier and more meaningful.

 

After graduating from university (Master in Economics and Finance, HSG), I had a successful career in business management and banking but I always felt I was working against my true nature.

 

After opening my yoga studio in Zurich – Yoga in a Bag, I found my true calling; my flow. The combination of yoga and healthy food is simply magical.

 

I am learning about life every day, but my vision is clear: to find and share tools suitable for modern life that help us live in more conscious, connected and happy ways.

Charles Jekeler

Kaula Yoga Teacher

Charles grew up in the country side near Brussels in Belgium. From a very young age, he was attracted to vintage automobiles and slowly developed a passion for restoring vintage cars and trucks.

During his International Business studies, he had the opportunity to travel across the globe and settled in Vancouver, British Columbia and Riverside, California to finally graduate in 2017 and start his career in the Automotive sector. In 2019 he moved back to Belgium to continue his automotive career in the financial department of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles. After 2 years of dedicated work for FCA, he reached a breaking point and suffered from a heavy burn-out which revealed for him to be a wake-up call at the age of 24. Realizing how short life actually is to find himself in a stressful and unhealthy environment, he decided to pursue his passion for vintage cars and became part of a rallye organization in Belgium until Covid-19 put a halt to all activities.

Being lost in his professional career, he took on the challenge of converting a postal-van into a camper-van and travelled across Europe for 8 months with his girlfriend during 2021.

After his return in Belgium, still not knowing how to proceed professionally, he randomly looked up a yoga teaching course online and came across Durga’s Tiger School in Ecuador. Durga’s Tiger School only teaches a very traditional type of Yoga combined with Tantra, called Kaula Tantra Yoga, for which he felt an internal call to take on a 500hr yoga teacher certificate. This experience would reveal herself to be life-changing for Charles during which he fell in love with Kaula Tantra Yoga and the effects it has on mental and physical health and discovered a true passion of bringing this beneficial effects to others around him. In the mean time, he also discovered his ability to heal humans and animals with energy for which he is taking a Long Term Healing course at the moment in the Netherlands, but also his dedication to heal women and men from internal sexual traumas through Tantric Healing Therapy for which he will take a professional certification in July 2022.

At the age of 27, Charles recently moved to Zürich, Switzerland, and has now found his mission on Planet Earth. He feels honored to be part of Rising Tribe Movement and is excited to share his experiences and abilities with the Tribe.
