Up Dog, Down Dog, Strike a pose!
I first stepped on the yoga mat in 2004, my interest being to find a highly physical practice l could take with me on tour. At the time l was the lead singer of a band and practically living on the road. In eight years we released 4 award winning albums that sold somewhere around 150000 copies, life was loud! In 2010 l moved to New York with the notion of Bigger, Better, Faster More, but whaddya know, instead of finding myself running around music biz events, l found myself more and more on the yoga mat. I practiced Iyengar, Kundalini, PowerYoga, Hatha… It took me a while to admit it to myself that l´m really not that interested in the pop scene anymore, but instead in movement, spiritual growth and the finer things in life.
So as all stories go, one thing leads to another, and here l am. A full time yoga teacher and loving every minute of it! My style is dynamic, alignment oriented with an emphasis on core awareness. I mainly teach hatha, vinyasa flow and yin yoga. I find yin yoga to be a nice balancing counterpart to the more active practice. Be the practice fast or slow it gives us the opportunity to ease out of that monkey brain mode into movement, into breath and if the weather is fair- into all kinds of good vibes.
I´m currently teaching in Helsinki, mainly private classes and a few weekly open classes.
