“The reason you keep on coming back to see me is very simple; every time you have seen me your body has learned certain things, even against your desire. And finally your body now needs to come back to me to learn more. Let’s say that your body knows that it is going to die, even though you never think about it. So I’ve been telling your body that I too am going to die and before I do I would like to show our body certain things, things which you cannot give to your body yourself… So let’s say then that your body returns to me because I am its friend.”

Yoga 1 on 1

In my first years practicing yoga I attended weekly group-classes. Soon after I met my teacher I began studying one-on-one, practicing on a daily basis and left the weekly classes behind. 1 on 1 is required is you want to go deeper with Yoga, it’s also the way Yoga was originally taught.

1 on 1 is also my preferred setting to teach – it enables me to become familiar with you, to offer teachings that are best suited and relevant for you, to see over a period of time how your practice develops and to respond to your unique and ever-changing life circumstances.

I feel that 1 on 1 is most effective when a teacher and student are together – in the same physical space. Yet a Yoga teacher is not always available. So I decided to see what I can do remotely – through the use of technology – 1 on 1 sessions using live communication tools (such as Skype)  in which video and audio can be utilized. This process may support your search for a Yoga teacher near you.

Please keep in mind that 1 on 1 sessions are just the tip of the iceberg:

  • Change is a slow and gradual process. If you start with high expectations you are setting yourself up for disappointment. If you start with a sober and healthy curiosity you may be surprised by what you discover.
  • I can  formulate a practice that is relevant for you in your life-setting – but its in your hands to transform that into a living and kicking practice. Sometimes this flows smoothly, other times it takes discipline. It is always in your hands.
  • Everything you know is a result of practice, a practice you have been executing from the moment you were born – you’ve been practicing a lot. Yoga is not magic, it is a systemic practice – it accumulates and builds until it gains a critical mass that sheds light on your journey through life.
