What three of the world’s foremost yoga and movement teachers are saying.
“Fascinating! And, much needed in the automatic and mechanical rendition of Yoga that has become widespread.”

“To open flow through joints, muscles, organs and fluids is to find openness, health and freedom – how exciting!

“My body came alive”
What my students are saying.
My body came alive, it was no longer something I had to force according to my mind. It became something that I could harmoniously live with.
Physiotherapist, Yoga teacher
I have a job with lots of repetitive movements. This is such a good way to relax tight muscles and open up the body again after a long workday.
The movements are very gentle, but they go really deep. Afterward, my body feels so relaxed and refreshed.
Living an embodied life
Living an embodied life is more than just moving. It’s about reconnecting with yourself – with your body, your community, and nature. When you find home in your body, you also reconnect with your basic emotions. You don’t have to figure everything out with your brain – you can feel it from within!

“Pleasure and gain”
What my students are saying.
I’ve found that movement can be pleasurable. And that you can benefit from the pleasure in it. It doesn't have to be pain and gain. It can also be pleasure and gain.
Physiotherapist, Mindfulness teacher
“I was so happy to find a way to work with my spine and hips without pain. It makes me feel really good in my body.”
I love having a greater sense of connection with my body, listening to it more intently and what it is trying to tell me. I feel as if parts of my mind and body are being awakened!
