ilu move team member nicole strub portrait


ilu move coach


Nicole is particularly passionate about working with pre- and postnatal clients and showing them the positive effects of mindful exercising during this stage of life.

Her classes include alignment based elements to move skillfully with great attention and care.

While living in Morocco running a surf and yoga villa for nearly four years, Nicole deepened her yoga practice and started teaching and hosting yoga retreats after having taken her 200h YTT with Charlie Stewart-Brown from Indiv Yoga™. Her style of teaching therefore combines elements of different yoga styles such as vinyasa, hatha (flow), yin and restorative having designed especially lessons for guests before and after surfing.

Through the birth of her daughter Aya Lou, Nicole discovered the positive effects that yoga and pilates had on her pregnancy and labour which intensified her interest of working with new moms and moms-to-be to support them through this unique phase of life. She finished several trainings with „BeBo Schweiz“ to become a certified teacher for pelvic floor as welll as to broaden her knowledge on „Rectus Diastase“. She also completed a pre- and postnatal yoga and pilates training.

Together with Pascale, Paulina and Kasey, she designed the ilu postnatal workout – an 8 week program – which combines the best of the three worlds (yoga, pilates and pelvic floor training) taking into account the specific challenges that women face in their post-partum period.

Chat with her in English, French, Spanish, German and a little Arabic.
