Sunday morning ashtanga practice

Sunday morning ashtanga practice

Practicing before teaching on a Sunday morning 🙂 The mind is a little calmer than in the second part of the day. Face is still sleepy. The body is a little stiff, but feels more rested and fresh after a usually free Saturday. The extra heaters are ON (because you know…Scandinavia, winter, cold, we need […]

Papillon – a review of our world

I’ve watched Papillon, the movie this weekend. And it made my heart bleed and shine in the same time. Papi’s story triggered so many strong emotions. I went from feeling angry for the injustices that often happen in our human society to feeling the strong lioness roar inside my heart to feeling the pain of […]

My 2018 highlights of the year

My 2018 highlights of the year

2018 was the year when I finally learned how to listen to my intuition. How to stay open and trustful to the world, but also stand my ground.

Interview with students – Kathrin & Georg

An interview we did in the summer of 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden with our nice students Kathrin and Georg. Kathrin and Georg practice on average 4 times/week.

Happy tears. Complicated (simple) world

Oh man! Those moments when you come to realize certain things that feel so deep and true, that you even don’t know how to put them into words. Here I am in front of my snowy window on this 6th of March, 2018 day. It’s 2:25 pm in Göteborg. It seems these are the last […]

Should you feel intimidated of ashtanga yoga?

I heard this phrase so many times: “Ashtanga yoga is not for everyone. You need to be strong and flexible and bla bla bla” I remember when someone who did a 200hours Yoga Alliance TTC once said: “I did this TTC but soon realized I need to start teaching something else, because you cannot teach […]

The ashtanga yoga magic

The ashtanga yoga magic

Hello friends, I’ve been away for a while, as you might know already. I honestly needed some time off. I share so much of myself with the world, that from time to time, I need to pause. Away from the blog  I had the time to invest more energy into other creative tasks and focus […]

2017 – Metamorphosis

  2017 has been one very interesting year of my life. November 2016 I embarked upon the daily journey of Ashtanga. I knew it will take me to my darkest sides and teach me lessons,but I didn’t think it will all happen so fast. First one and a half month has been all happy and […]
