I never thought yoga and meditation was for me, I could never really be present and calm, my mind was always everywhere but nowhere. I used to think I was meant to be miserable, that I somehow did not deserve to be happy or to be loved.
After starting a more regular yoga practice, things started to become clear, I could see myself through new loving eyes, I stopped being so hard on myself and started to listen more to that inner voice of mine rather than all the expectations people had on me and the negative thoughts I used to have.
I was working really heard after my Human Rights Master to do a UN career, trying to become something or someone. I've always been hard working and worked over 10 years with vulnerable groups through social work in Sweden and abroad. Thanks to my yoga practice and my spiritual journey, I've been able to let go of all the expectations and become more and more present and true to myself, finding my own path.
Surviving two abusive relationships where I was tought that I was useless and not worthy of love, combined with a stress related breakdown from over working, were all important parts of my journey to where I am now and who I am today. Thanks to yoga and meditation I've been able to use all the difficult things I've been through as a fire to reach my full potential, to grow and release everything that is not serving me. I decided to use every bump in the road as something positive, something to learn and grow from. Yoga and mediation has truly helped me create a strong positive mindset.
My spiritual journey
2017 I decided that I wanted to deepen my knowledge of yoga, pranyama and meditation so I took my first teacher training in India in Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. In the beginning of 2018 I fell in love with yinyoga and took a teacher training within yinyoga and it was also the year I hosted my first yoga retreat in Bali and started teaching 5-8 classes per week in Stockholm. In April 2019 I felt that India was calling for me again and I went to the spiritual city Rishikesh for a meditation teacher training. I beleive we will all always be students as long as we are openminded and at the same time we can all be teachers if we are passionate about sharing our experiences and knowledge. August 2019 I took another advanced teacher training course in yinyoga and I willl keep collecting more knowledge to share with my students. During March 2020 I went to India again to take a 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training in Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga.
Today there is nothing I feel more passionate about than helping others to heal and grow the way I did and still do with my soulwork practice. I feel incredibly blessed everytime I get to be a small part of someones healing process. This is my calling in life and when I can help others by sharing my light, my love and passion, I also become closer to my true self.
