Peter Kjær Esbensen


  • Co-founder of YOGAMUDRA.
  • To me the best thing about yoga is that the practice can be used both as a barometer of my physical / mental state while at the same time there is a wide range of practices available to meet the needs of this state. Relevance is the key word - what is needed here and now. Yoga is not limited to practice on the mat, but contributes to all aspects of life.
  • Father of Sixten, Vitus, and Iselin.


  • First and foremost, my practice is based in Astanga vinyasa yoga. But I am also inspired by Iyengar yoga, Viniyoga, Yin yoga, Vinyasa yoga, and the Satyananda tradition.
  • I consider both Pranayama, Meditation and Yoga Nidra to be indispensable tools for a well-balanced practice.
  • Running (mostly trail running)
  • I have been teaching since 2001. In the beginning I taught in health clubs, yoga studios and companies. Since 2003 I have focused all my time on the development of and teaching classes at YOGAMUDRA.
  • I teach Astanga vinyasa yoga and Vinyasa yoga.
Trainings and sources of inspiration
  • I have been practicing with many experienced teachers since 1995 and continue to do so, and I have learned many things from all of them. I would like to highligt some of the most important teachers:
  • I met Paul Dallaghan via the Centered Yoga teacher training program (300+ hours, certified by Yoga Alliance). What I like the most about Paul is his vast knowledge, his dedication, and his sense of humour. Paul and his teacher O.P. Tiwariji are my Pranayama teachers.
  • Since Michael Stone first visited us in 2005 he has been a great source of inspiration.
  • Total yoga nidra teacher training course with Uma and Nirlipta Tuli from Sitaram Partnership in London, 2013.
  • I have studied with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and Sri R. Sharath in Mysore, India, as well as in Copenhagen.
  • Participated in 1996 in a 3-months retreat at Scandinavian Yoga and Meditation School in Sweden. The course is an important part of their thorough yoga teacher training.


  • Qualified masseur from Naturmedicinsk Kursuscenter.
  • MSc in Engineering (construction). I worked with development of low-energy building and energy consultancy.
