Lotta has a broad and deep knowledge of yoga with great experience to adapt and develop programs for different needs.
In Sweden she is one of the pioneers of the more physically oriented yoga. For many years she ran, together with a business partner, one of Stockholm's largest yoga studios. Her strength lies in her capacity to adapt training for individuals and groups, as she is very perceptive of people´s varying needs.
She has an ability to meet each individual at their level, at the point where they are and see a potential for
development and to guide and inspire further development.

Over the years she has also been involved in creating and developing customized programs for different situations and groups. She has developed and led yoga teaching training programs that include theory, techniques, training and mentoring as well as training programs for pregnant women, young people and various businesses. These programs have also included techniques for deep relaxation and stress management.

Characteristic of the more physically oriented yoga is that it is based on creating continuity in training and increased body awareness to build both physical and mental strength, flexibility and stability.

In recent years her expertise has been required internationally. This has entailed the responsibility for running various yoga studios for short and long periods in different countries, but especially in Spain. This requires being sensitive to different cultural needs and act with authority in a leadership role.
