About me

Yoga teacher, energy healer and a normal girl like any other

Dedicated to positive change, wellbeing and self-mastery

My name is Barbara Isabel Barco and I was born and raised in Switzerland, to an Italian father and a British Mother. I was lucky to travel very often from a young age, and I often think of myself as a citizen of the world – respecting, learning from and valuing each culture, language and person that I come across. At present, I consider Switzerland, England and Italy to be my home countries. 

I’m passionate about living a yogic lifestyle and find it hard to go a day without doing my yoga practice, my meditation and enjoying some tasty home-cooked vegan (and often foraged) food. I am a lover of nature and care deeply about the environment. Being outdoors, especially in green spaces, always recharges my batteries and I try to live my life in a way that contributes to positive environmental change wherever possible. I’m an active person and prior to finding my love for yoga I was a very keen Rock’n’Roll acrobatics dancer. I also love travelling, enjoying the company of like-minded people, playing mantras, and learning about holistic healing techniques.

Over the past 10 years I have been increasingly drawn to a holistic life style and holistic healing approaches. This has lead me to train to be an Energy Healer, a Facilitator for Transformational Healing, a Reiki-Master, a Moon-Mother, a Kundalini-Yoga Teacher, a Laughter-Yoga Teacher and a Kids-Yoga Teacher. 

Since childhood I have been interested in learning about other cultures and ways of life and have truly loved hearing other people’s personal stories and views on life. I have always enjoyed sharing with people and started teaching at the age of 12. I have been teaching ever since in various fields and languages in different parts of the world. 

I have studied at university in five different languages in various different countries, and have degrees in Sociology, Environmental Sciences and Primary Education. During and after my studies I worked for several years as a primary school teacher in different schools in Switzerland, as well as in the field of environmental education in different NGO’s including the WWF.
