Background

  • I started my yoga journey in 2003 when I first attended a class at the Astanga School at Vesterbrogade in Copenhagen. With a background as a classical dancer, I found in yoga the same depth and coordination between breathing and movement, agility, strength and balance that was so familiar to me.
  • After a few years of having primarily Susanna Finocchi as my teacher, I began to look for other ways to approach yoga. Soon I found YOGAMUDRA, where it was primarily Peter Esbensen and Nicolai Jespersen who became my sources of inspiration.
  • I have regularly followed workshops with various international teachers, incl. Kino Macgregor and Kathryn Bruni-Young. They all come up with new approaches and views and has been instrumental in helping me find my own practice and way of viewing yoga.
  • In 2019, I decided to take a yoga teacher training (at YOGAMUDRA) to immerse myself even more in the world of yoga, which contains so much more than asanas.

Practice

  • I am no longer a dogmatic yoga practitioner. My own practice is characterized by doing what I feel like instead of what I previously thought that I should do. I like the dynamic yoga practice, but I also mix several elements from eg. Hatha and Viniyoga into my practice.
  • In addition to asanas, I regularly try to work on pranayama and meditation. For me, yoga has become a space for reflection and concentration. An opportunity to feel in the body and close off everything else.

Teaching

  • I really like teaching and meeting students wherever they are that day. Yoga feels different from person to person and from day to day, and it is only the individual who can feel what is right in the body.
  • I think it should be fun to practice yoga. It doesn't have to be that serious all the time. I enjoy creating space for my students to laugh and try to move forward without feeling that they are doing something wrong.
  • In addition to yoga, I also train a power walking team.

Other background

  • I trained as an architect specializing in industrial design from the School of Architecture. In 2011, I set up my own studio, where I primarily work with interior design, concept development and furniture design.
