Granlibakken guests, locals and students of the Yoga Room welcome!
I began my yogic journey in my late teens. At first, I was drawn to the practice for its physical benefits since I had always played sports, but was soon rewarded with the mental and emotional effects that yoga can have on one's life. I suffered from anxiety paired with sleeping problems and found yoga to be an amazing alternative medicine. Since, I have received my 200hr YTT in Bali, Indonesia in order to share such a beautiful gift with any and all who are curious.
I strive to provide students with classes that are accessible for all levels, while presenting a challenge for each individual. I feel that yoga should be a playful activity that also encourages each of us to grow, both mentally and physically, from the experience. I seek to provide a space in which students can gain awareness as well as insight to the workings of their bodies and minds. No matter the skill level or amount of practice one has, I encourage everyone to come play on the mat with me! I am excited to become part of such an awesome community of yogis and look forward to meeting you!
