I started dabbling with different styles of yoga in 1996. In 2000 I established a serious and regular practice. I became a Yoga Alliance-certified teacher in New York in 2007, and begun to teach later that year. In 2010 I also did a Yin Yoga teacher training in Stockholm.
I have studied with many renowned teachers such as Ana Forrest, Sharon Gannon and David Life, Lino Miele and Petri Räisinen.
I feel that yoga is more than just physical exercise, even if that, of course is the emphasis of my classes. At least at first glance. But over time I hope my students will find asana practice to be a powerful and joyful path to a deeper understanding of the mysteries of life.
I teach two styles of yoga: Vinyasa Flow and Yin. These two styles are polar opposite. You should try both as they perfectly compliment each other. Just like day and night. And rice and beans.
Vinyasa Flow is a relatively fast-paced, and invigorating form of yoga where asanas (poses) are linked into little vignettes, held together by deep Uja breathing.
Yin Yoga is slow, meditative and very introvert. You won’t really build any muscles, instead you will stretch deeply, going beyond the muscles and into the connective tissue and even the bones.
