My name is Petra Axlund and I am an E-RYT500 Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher, Meditation Teacher and the owner of EarthBound Yoga Design. I come from a traditional Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga background, but now I teach and practice Vinyasa Yoga. I have 1,100 hours of Yoga Training, and more than 3,500 logged hours teaching yoga. I have studied under Bryan Kest, Seane Corn, Josh Summers, Elena Brower, Annie Q and Lori Bonazolli. I use to own my own yoga studio, but now I teach at The Yoga Shop of West Hartford, The Yoga Shop of Ludlow and The Yoga Shop of Old Saybrook. I also offer private yoga classes (101 or small groups) and you can hire me as your meditation coach (classes & workshops). I also have recorded guided meditations and a De-Clutter Your Life E-course that you can purchuse via my website. If you and a few of your friends wants to learn how to make a 108 Mala I cand come to your home or yoga studio and hold a Mala Making Workshop (more info on my website).
I offer a holistic and yogic approach on physical activity, mindful living, organic eating, soulful healing and deep recovering. Through the physical practice of yoga, breath work and meditation I know your life is going to change for the better. Yoga is not about how deeply you can backbend, how long you can hold an arm balancing pose or weather or not you can stand on your head. Yoga is about connecting with breath and creating space. It’s about falling back in love with yourself and to make peace with your body. It’s about coming back home and realizing that the things you seek are already inside you. Yoga is to become aware of your mind and the noise it creates. Just by softening and letting go you can release your fear and be free. I love what yoga does for my body, mind and spirit. It has made me a better and more balanced person, injury and pain free and stronger both physically and mentally. And it will do that for you too!
