Kerstin is healing herself by practicing and sharing yoga. It is important for her to be genuine and that her students feel safe and included.
During teacher training Kerstin held beach yoga classes to practice her skills. That have became sort of a lifestyle so in summer her yoga studio is actually on the beach.
”For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in justice and moral issues. It was a natural step for me to study law. I worked as a Lawyer for a while, but never found it meaningful. After a deep crisis I needed to make some changes. When I started to teach yoga it was like I had no other choice. I just knew that it was what I was supposed to do.
I grew up riding horses which lead to my body becoming quite inflexible with a lot of limitations. From the outside, my asanas may appear quite basic, but for me yoga is so much more than the outcome of the asanas. It helps me to cope with the constant spinning of the mind. The reward comes when I suddenly reach a state of wholeness, even If for just a short moment.
In 2001 I started practicing yoga, then in 2008 I met Jenny Lindgren, who inspired and supported me on my yoga journey. I assisted Jenny in Yin yoga who shared with me her deep knowledge of physiology and anatomy. The anatomical insight of the human body more and more becomes a fundamental part of my teaching. I discovered that if I understand how my body reacts and its limits, I can feel secure and grounded. It is a way to find inner peace.
The basis of yoga philosophy is how to handle life as a human being, a guideline for how to interact with yourself and the world around you. It takes me back to the most important question, how do I want to put my own imprint? I’ll never claim life to be easy, but sometimes we over- complicate things unnecessarily. We get shocked, react with fear and lose contact with our intentions. Yoga can help us get back on track again. And again, and again.
Practicing yoga is supposed to be joyful so what I’m reaching for is sweetness, sukham, within every posture. The essence of yoga and the essence of Life.”
Kerstin is one of those truly unique people who found their way through life, and are dedicated to share it with their fellow human beings, with true gratitude and humbleness. Her yoga classes are as special as herself since she includes everyone, on every level, as well as herself, the earth and the entire universe in them. As a yoga teacher she is aware of her students at all times and also curious and eager to know more. She keeps on educating herself even though she already is on a high level of knowledge about various forms of yoga. I myself love her yin-and restorative classes that works wonders with my stiff office body and I love her dedication and positive attitude. Annica H
From the first moment that I joined Kerstins class on the windy beach, I was hooked. She is totally present and creates an amazing atmosphere and makes you humble to life, your body and who you are. I cried silently thru some of her classes and I left the beach with a lighter and happier heart. To build up a theme for specific bodyparts was great, and inspired me to do more yogapositions for those areas, in my case, my feet. Thank you! Silvia R
