“In 2005 I met in Thailand a bit older woman in her mid 40ties who was doing yoga nearly every day at the beach. She was appearing much younger than her actual age and had a funny and open personality. Sometimes she would drink a glass of wine or smoke a cigarette but all in a very controlled way which didn’t seem to be hard on her. I still drank too much and smoked too much at that time, though this was pretty impressive for me. In the same year I decided to start with this yoga-thing and took my first yoga class. I was mainly looking for another kind of sport that would bring me additionally the same self-confidence and relaxed personality as this woman had. Does yoga offer this kind of miracle?
Almost 15 years of yoga and over 1.000 hours of yoga teacher training later I witnessed and can tell a lot of stories of how yoga changed my life AND the life of my students AND even the people around us for the better. It is just amazing! Yoga is per se a practice of change and it will ask you to open your heart for these changes. It can be that your intention when starting with yoga is that you just want to get more flexible, more powerful or more relaxed. You will get all of these BUT be prepared that it will not stop here. At least not in my classes. I will not allow that we stay that shallow, we will raise over the level of gymnastics and a bit of relaxation. With the help of the yoga philosophy you will dive deeper into your personality. Besides all the physical aspects you will find out on the yoga mat how your mind works (and plays tricks on you!) and how you can intentionally calm your mind with body postures, breathwork and meditation. You will find out who you truly are behind the shadows of your thoughts and behind the beliefs that society put on you. There is more than the obvious world reveals to you. Get back into contact with your intuition, make better decisions in your everyday life and love yourself for the divine and endless being you are!
I teach the physical aspects of the body postures (asanas) in a profound and save way. My classes are sometimes physical challenging and sometimes more meditative easy going – depending on the theme of the class. Due to my second 800 hours teacher training with a focus on yoga philosophy and meditation I can explain challenging ideas in simple words, so you can bring them to life in your practice on the mat and even easily transfer them into your everyday life. My goal is that you have all the yoga basics in your toolbox, that you start from a save place and then develop your home practice that finally gets your daily routine. Then you will probably still come to my yoga classes to connect with your yoga tribe (called kula) and profit from their uplifting energy. I would be so happy to welcome you in one of my classes, workshops or retreats. Please read more about me and my teachings at Yoga Copenhagen.”
