GET TO KNOW ME
I am a yoga teacher, massage therapist, chef and writer that have a lifelong passion for health and movement. I am trained in Yoga, Ayurveda, nutrition and massage, with more than 3000 hours of studies in my fields.
In addition, I facilitate DANCEMandala and DJ at Ecstatic Dance events - for the pure love of dancing.
I am passionate about sharing movement that should make the mover feel good about themselves, whether it is yoga or dance, and sharing food inspiration that makes people fall in love with healthy options. When a cabbage salad tastes better to you than a cake, my mission is fulfilled!
In the last few years I started focusing on developing yoga and nutrition programs for women in Menopause, and the next exciting step in my professional journey is to launch these new retreats and trainings. So stay tuned!
I was born in 1975 & grew up in a family where there was a strong interest in meditation, communication and natural food - and on the other hand, ill-being of both body and psyche/emotions. Both sides inspired me to take an early interest in the inner and outer wellbeing of myself and others.
Yoga became a great source of inspiration for me, first in the shape of meditation which I was introduced to at age 6, later as physical yoga since I met my first teacher at age 17. If you look at my CV, I bet you can tell that studying and learning is a lifestyle for me.
Alongside my great interest for health, my life has of course also included its share of challenge, injury, trauma, destructive habits and so on. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to discover how much my tools can support me through lifes changing phases, and how staying in balance is always a dynamic process.
Yoga and meditation has helped me overcome addiction and has also helped me heal from a nerve pinch that disabled my arm for 18 months. Muscle training and diet changes has helped me overcome long term physical pain, Going towards my 50's, I am now taking great interest in natural hormone support and more peaceful practice.
In my view, health is a dynamic and individual process, not a one-size-fits-all solution. I wish to meet students transparently and equally, with the attitude that ultimately, each of us have the key to move towards greater balance. I want to use the tools I have learned through life to inspire others to help themselves, and to make informed choices.
I have been running my own business since 2007, offering yoga teaching, massage/bodywork, herbal body treats and more. I started DJ:ing in 2016 and facilitate free dance events of different kinds.
I spend a lot of my work as the lead teacher of Axelsons Yoga Teacher training, a Yoga Alliance registered 200 hrs program. As the creative head of the training, I have designed the program and wrote the 200+ page manual - a piece of work that keep touching and changing peoples lives, which makes me feel both humbled and honored.
2012-19, I was also the editor in chief and writer at Axelsons customer magazine FriskvårdsMagasinet. I wrote 300+ articles on body therapies & education, interviewed 150+ people and was responsible for the bi monthly newsletter.
Beside the Yoga Teacher Trainings I offer treatments, DJ gigs, private sessions and events, with Copenhagen as a base. In my daily life I enjoy a small house with garden where I work, practice, cook, dance, work more, relax & play with my friends, my partner and his lovely daughter. In the winters I often travel to warmer countries, to relax, study or teach.
