Hi, I'm Sofia, a yoga teacher, traveller, psychology student and enjoyer of life from Stockholm, Sweden.
I tried out my first yoga class when I was about 13 years old and since then it's always been a part of my life. I first did Bikram, Yin and Hatha Yoga before falling in love with the flow of Ashtanga Yoga. After my graduation from school I bought a one way ticket to India to explore and deepen my knowledge of yoga. A few months later I did my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course. I continued my travels and ended up where I started, in Stockholm, to teach yoga full time. I started working at one of Stockholms most well known yoga studios. I continued my training there with the senior teachers, while also teaching myself.
I've practiced under the guidance of a few known teachers like John Scott, Chuck Miller and my teacher Sharath Jois. A great teacher is and will always be a student as well. I yearly go to India to continue my yoga studies with guru Sharath Jois in Mysore. I recently got his blessing to teach the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method, Authorized Level 2 (KPJAYI/SYC).
A few years ago I built my own yoga shala together with my mother in Stockholm's archipelago. You can read more about this magical retreat center on its website (Click here)
"Today, yoga is my lifestyle, I breathe it, practice it and teach what I learn on the way."
In my yoga classes you will find a good mix of asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation. Whether it's a dynamic class or a restorative one the class will always have a purpose, something to teach you and me.
In my dynamic yoga classes you will find a since of playfulness with focus on alignment, strength and technique.
In my yin/restorative classes we will explore the body and the mind through stillness. Staying in postures for a long time to observe what body and mind is up to. Observing patterns of the mind, thoughts and emotions. Whatever is going on in there, we use yoga as a tool to find stillness and acceptance.
Join me on this fantastic journey using the tool of yoga to get to know ourselves, eventually others and this world even better.
