Yoga has been a constant in my life since i first set foot on a mat in 2008. I love every part of the ancient wisdom of this healing practice. I look forward to guide you on your own yoga journey.

Anja

My yoga journey started in 2011, since then I have practiced yoga on and off in conjunction with other sports. Two years ago I realized that it had a significant impact on me, both physically and mentally and wanted to learn more. I finished my 200hr-RYT Certificate in 2017 and my journey has led me to teach different styles and tailor my classes to the attendees. I love practicing a variety of styles, but find myself mostly drawn to Vinyasa Flow classes.

Carma started practicing yoga during her articles as candidate attorney in an attempt to find an outlet for the daily stress and drama. In no time, the benefits of yoga outweighed all else, the “obsession” took over, and she completed her 200hr RYT course. Carma teaches simply and creatively, and aims to encourage her students to be present on their mats and in their bodies.
