With her background as a nurse and dietician Kristina's teaching is based on a holistic and caring approach. Kristina teaches primarily in English and Sanskrit. At this point Kristina lives part of the time in Kenya, but is often on the schedule at Yogafactory.

Anita

Anita Lindberg met yoga over 25 years ago. She is a graduate of a Yoga teacher in Rishikesh, India, in 2012 at Himalayan.
Anita's teaching is based on Hatha Yoga and focuses on the classical practice of pranayama (respiratory control and technique), bandhas (body locks to lift and hold on energy) and meditation centers. The subtle layers of the pranic body, balance and flow of the Nadis (energy channels) and achieving "The Yogic State of Mind" are the heart of Anita's teaching.

Anita moved in 2013 with her family to Ubud in Bali, where they lived for 2 years.
Deeply inspired by the Balinese Hindu culture and beautiful scenery, she spent all her spare time studying all forms of yoga and spirituality through work shops and courses with talented yoga teachers from all over the world.

She has taught at her own retreats, workshops and yoga teams. In addition to being a yoga instructor, Anita has taken courses in healing massage, meditation, Ayurveda and is a trained Reiki healer and NLP therapist.

Tracey

Tracey is originally from Cape Town, South Africa. She is a qualified primary school teacher and a Kundalini Yoga teacher. She has taught in England, Thailand and Denmark. Tracey has been practising Kundalini for the last eight years and is passionate about holding space and elevating her students so that they are able to see their own potential through posture, breath and meditation. Her classes allow you to dive deep within your own experience where you are able to connect with your breath, body and sound. The space allows you to quiten the mind in stillness and to heal and rejuvenate through deep relaxation. Each kriya that is delivered is like a piece of music, a perfect sequence of energy, tones, and feelings that are played in the instrument of the body. Kundalini Yoga is the science of changing and strengthening your radiance to give you an expanded life and greater capacity.
Tracey teaches in English and Sanskrit.

Caroline

Caroline is teaching yoga from a deep love for the movements.
She found yoga 10 years ago in Paris and it was an instant match. Inspired by the invitation to connect to the inner world through asanas and thereby getting to know oneself more intimately she invested many hours in the practice and eventually became a teacher too. Caroline teaches with a focus on bringing awareness and gratitude forth. Caroline teaches in English.

Leah

Leah has been practicing yoga for over two decades and teaching since 2003.
She had really fallen in love with the practice when meeting her teacher Noga Barkai in Jerusalem that year - there she found the precision and flow that felt most like home. Leah is certified in Kripalu yoga, Vijnana yoga (an 800 hour advanced teacher training) and prenatal yoga, but also draws from her extensive background as a professional dancer and other methodologies such as pilates and feldenkrais.
Leah loves teaching and is passionate about seeing the changes in her students, their progress and their gained awareness of alignment and quality of movement. Aside from teaching asana, she enjoys teaching pranayama in depth, using yoga as a therapeutic practice and working one-on-one with students who are curious and/or need the extra support.
After the birth of her second child in 2012 Leah started developing her own method - using yoga to build pelvic floor health and awareness and is currently working on her first book on the topic.

Victoria

Victoria found yoga at a young age, going to classes with her mom while living in California.
She continued to deepen her practice as she got older, learning more about herself and how to live a life through listening to her heart. Originally from California, she moved to Denmark in 2015 to escape the fast pace of the US, took a 200-hour RYT in Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin in Copenhagen and then in 2018, took a 300-hour RYT in Yoga Therapy in Rishikesh. Through these teacher trainings, she opened her mind to an even deeper knowledge to the meaning of yoga in the exploration of life's purpose.
Victoria loves teaching powerful Vinyasa and Hatha classes incorporating different Pranayama techniques with the intention of being fully present and tuning into the mind, body, and breath. To notice the small intricacies of one's being in order to dive deeper into the question 'Who am I?.'
Victoria's classes are taught in English.
