“It is through your body you realize that you are a spark of divinity”
– B.K.S Iyengar
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.
Anita teaches in English, Danish and Sanskrit.
Nynne teaches fluid and imaginative Vinyasa flow classes, alignment and breath based Hatha classes that are good for the soul, dreamy Restorative classes and playful Aerial classes sure to make you float. Her teaching comes from a place of passion and joy – knowing the strength and beauty yoga can bring to your life.
Nynne teaches in English and Sanskrit and looks forward to welcoming you to her classes.
Tracey teaches in English and Sanskrit.
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.
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.
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.
Oliver ( vikar)
Oliver went to Rishikesh in India where he took his 200-hour teacher training and gained knowledge about yoga, philosophy, anatomy, and himself.
To Oliver yoga is a unique tool for creating balance in body and mind. In a busy life, working with bodily awareness, deep breathing, and physical balance provides a plethora of beneficial effects. He feels those everyday on his own body, and it gives him great joy to see others leave the yoga studio significantly more relaxed, than when they came. That is why yoga creates meaning in Oliver’s life, and why he loves teaching it.
Helle ( guest teacher)
I 2014/2015 tog Helle en RYT200 yogalæreruddannelse hos My Yoga i Charlottenlund, og hun har siden udbygget sine kompetencer blandt andet med Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra og meditations uddannelser.
Det der bliver ved med at fascinere Helle i yogatræningen, er den unikke effekt det har på den fysiske og mentale smidighed sammen med styrkelse af evnen til at fokusere og bevare en indre ro i hektiske perioder.
Helle kommer fra en lang erhvervskarriere og har i dag sin egen virksomhed. Udover yogaen, fungerer hun som rådgiver og coach i forretningsverdenen. Yogaen er en naturlig del af hendes livsstil. En levevis der bliver ved med at vække hendes nysgerrighed for hvor de næste skridt på yogavejen fører hen.
Helle har særligt fokus på den fordybende Yin praksis, meditation og den mere traditionelle Hatha yoga, enten hver for sig eller sammen.
Gennem sin undervisning, er det et stort ønske for Helle at videregive sine erfaringer med yoga og meditation og samtidig bidrage til større indre overskud, balance, glæde og fred hos yogaudøvere.
Helle underviser på dansk
Lotte ( guest teacher)
Yogaen og alle dens aspekter bliver ved med at begejstre Lotte, der elsker at lære nyt, blive inspireret og tage ny viden med i egen undervisning.
