I started doing yoga in my mid twenties, because I felt very rigid in my body, and that I needed to find inner peace. Soon, one yoga class a week, became a daily routine at Hamsa. This continued for several years, until I decided to aspire towards being a yoga teacher, and did a teacher training in 2013. Many inner and outer journeys later I started teaching, and it feels like the most natural part of my yogic path.
Since 2008 I have been working as a physical therapist, but I recently decided to quit as my job in rehabilitation, to dive deeper in to my practice of yoga. With a background in physical therapy I naturally have a lot of emphasis on alignment of the body. To me alignment is about guiding the body into safe poses, that also feel good to you.
I typically teach all levels of Hatha and Gentle Hatha, and occasional I also teach a Vinyasa class. Besides good alignment, some of the other essences in my teaching is to bring the spirit into the process of meditating with the body. Yoga, to me, is an inner calling towards a way of existing in the world. A way that is more clean, pure and open. Especially the gentle classes will be more focused on the inner landscapes. I will guide you through supported, healing poses in a soft flow, with focus on the breath.
I also do bodywork - mainly massages and one-to-one yoga of my hobbies are also making mala's, that you might find at Hamsa. A mala is a prayer-bead with 108 beads, and is used to count sacred mantra, as part of your yoga and meditation practice. I use mantra on my classes from time to time.
