Hearthfire Yoga

Hello there! Whether you are a guest in Klagenfurt, you recently moved here or you just enjoy Yoga classes in English - you've come to the right place at the Hearthfire!

We welcome everybody and invite you to practice and build a community with us. Emily is an American who has been living and working in Austria for twentysomething years. She loves teaching in English, because it helps her to speak from the heart. And this is what we feel in her Vinyasa and Yoga for everybody - classes!

In time you will learn that you can also try out our German-led classes, because many terms are being taught in Sanskrit (an old language from the Indian subcontinent) or English anyways - and once you get used to them, you'll explore your own Yoga experience in any class.

Language Coaching for Professionals & Expats

Learning a new language can be a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be impossible.

Hi, I’m Simone Pols. I’m a language coach and project manager based in Austria. I’ve studied more than 10 languages, and I’m fluent in 7, that I use on a daily-basis to negotiate with my clients as a project manager.

As a language coach, I work with professionals like yourself to learn the local language while managing a busy schedule. I have more than 2 years of experience as a coach and over 10 years of learning languages personally, and I’ve seen many individuals go from struggling to thriving quickly. 

It’s true: learning a new language has lots of difficulties and obstacles. But I’m here to let you know once you understand how to do it, you’re capable of mastering any foreign language at any age!

My coaching programs are designed to take your studies to the next level by giving you the keys to unlock your language learning potential. With pronunciation training, accountability, study plans, and learning strategies, you’ll take a massive leap toward your language goals sooner than you imagined possible!

Networking Between the Mountains

"I am Anita Pinagli, a qualified Carinthian wander mountain guide (Bergwanderführer) and  I would like to share my knowledge with you. Networking Between the Mountains is a project which allows people to acquire basic knowledge about how to approach the local mountains, which rules to follow and what are the hidden dangers you can encounter along your hike. Let’s network between our mountains together! The area around Villach offers many different mountain peaks to conquer!  The inconvenient point is that mountains are not always accessible to everybody. Mountains are an entity with their own will: you need to know their language and you need to learn to respect it! So it will respect you!"

Music lessons

"Hello everyone,

I am a music teacher from Serbia with many years of working experience with children from kindergarten, primary and secondary school. Teaching is my biggest passion and during classes I try to transmit all my love and knowledge of music to my students.

I studied classical music at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, Serbia, and I strongly believe that classical music pieces are the foundation for all future music knowledge. There is evidence to suggest that exposure to classical music can have a positive impact on cognitive development, particularly in children. It has a big influence on their brain, concentration, cognitive skills, and teaches them to feel different emotions.

I offer music lessons to students of different ages. May it be individual lessons (online / in person) or group workshops for the youngest. These are some of the subjects I could give a lesson on:

  • Piano
  • Solfeggio
  • Singing
  • Music Theory

English for Kids (Learn language spontaneously through singing songs and playing funny music games with movements. It is the easiest and funniest way for kids to learn something new. Additionally, they develop also their motor skills, mental skills, improve memory and speaking)

I am able to teach children in Serbian or English language. German language is in progress."
