Non-violence, peace in oneself, peace in the world
Certified Moksha yoga and yin yoga instructor
Teaching and guiding people in yoga is a great privilege and a great deal of trust. Through presence and heart, with voice and hands, I try to get those who practice yoga to create space, mobility and strength both physically and mentally.
My first contact with yoga was in 2012. I immediately felt yoga was something I searched for a long time. A stressful life with a lot of work and travel in my work and a daily life that was nonexistent meant that I simply needed a new lifestyle, which I found in yogan.

My focus as a teacher
A very important part of yoga is the term Ahimsa.
Ahimsa is Sanskrit and translates into ”No violence”. The word Ahimsa comes from love and is about compassion for all living. It not only means avoiding physical violence or causing harm to other people and the environment around you, it also means feeling compassionate towards yourself.
In your workout, it means that you do not push yourself and hurt your body, do not compare with others, drop your demands on perfect positions, take it easy, lower your expectations and appreciate your body where it is right now.
Yoga is about getting to know the possibilities and limitations, but you have the rest of your life to do it. Have patience!
Ahimsa also includes taking care of our environment. Ahimsa in your eating habits means choosing food that will give you the right nutrition.
The studion is manned 30 min before and after classes (15 minutes before morning and noon classes).
