Bio

I used to practice and teach a lot of physical activities back in the 90´s until I felt something was missing..In the year of 2000 yoga came into my life to stay. It was just too good to be true – physical and mental challenges in the same package! Yoga definitely made me more patient, more tolerant, more humble and it didn´t take long until it became a need and an amazing tool to deal with my everyday life. I took the step to become a yoga teacher thanks to my first major yoga teacher/guide Larry Schultz from San Fransisco. He was such a warm and colourful person and he tought with so much humour and love! His 4 teaching corner stones were: 1) Kindness 2) Compassion 3) Discipline 4) Humour, wow! I took all this to my heart, and I try to adapt just that when I teach myself! I have realized that all of us have different bodies and this is also something that I emphasize in my classes! My students should  feel proud, comfortable and good enough wherever they are and whatever their bodies can do right at that moment!

Over the years I´ve had the opportunity and privilege to teach youths with HIV, youths and adults with various functional disabilities as well as teaching stressed out personnel  at companies/authorities - all so rewarding!

Thank you yoga, and thank you all of my inspiring yoga teachers, such as Josephine Selander, Julie Martin and others that I have met and studied for throughout the years! It is so much richer with you in my life!
