As I am writing this, in the full blossom of spring 2018, I am looking back at more than 20 years of dedicated, joyful and varied yoga practice, and 10 years of sharing this practice through teaching in London (Triyoga, The Life Centre, The Special Yoga Centre) and now Oslo (HiYoga).
I have studied two years of Iyengar yoga and completed 200-hrs of Hatha training at Yogacampus, London, later specialising in yoga as therapy, pregnancy yoga and mama/baby yoga with my UK teachers Erika Tourell and Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.
Having had three children I have experienced the incredible benefits of yoga through pregnancy and birth, and in reclaiming a healthy post-baby body in a safe and gentle way. Together we are exploring the continuous benefits of all aspects of yoga and mindfulness in motherhood and family life.
More than anything, my children and my continuous work with yoga for women’s health and wellbeing has taught me the importance of a fluid, organic and truthful practice. As a result I teach yoga that is sensitive to and supports women’s bodies, experiences and journey. This approach has not only allowed me to keep my practice going through life changes and transitions, but has helped me embrace and handle life in the same way.
I have a BA in Sociology and Communication from London, and Creative Leadership and Social Innovation from the KaosPilots in Denmark. I have worked as a freelance journalist, design advisor, brand manager and director of charitable projects and events in Sarajevo.
My first book Yogamamma was published in Norway this year.
