Paris, FranceHatha & Prenatal Yoga, Yoga TherapyIt is as an actress of an American acting troupe , where I discovered yoga to calm me down before I went on stage . Yoga is very important for me and helps me to find more balance and to feel more in tune with myself.
Back on stage in Paris and after the creation of my own theater group, I studied yoga and finished a teacher training at the Center for Yoga with Michelle Marsh Jacobi. This training is recognized by Yoga Alliance and allows me to teach in two languages that I speak fluently.
Yoga is a way for me to find to myself . The body is the temple of the soul and yoga is a way to get back to the basics , where our inner voice can express itself and where you learn to listen properly to your yourself. In this way we become more resilient, more relaxed and experience physical as well as mental harmony.
Because I have personally experienced the benefits of yoga on body and mind, I believe in the power of it and now want to support people in need with this knowledge. With this hope in mind, I am educating myself further to become a yoga therapist.

Oslo, NorwayHatha Yoga & pre/post natalSince I stumbled upon B.K.S. Iyengar’s little red book The Tree of Yoga in the Buddhist Centre in East London as a student in ’98, yoga has been a much loved and ever present part of my life. I teach Iyengar-based, dynamic Hatha yoga - yoga that calms the mind, tones the body and feeds the soul. During the last six years I have had three children…, and consequently pregnancy yoga, yoga during labour and mummy/baby yoga has been the focus of both my teaching and my own practice. I have experienced first-hand the benefits of yoga through pregnancy, birth and in reclaiming a strong and healthy post-baby body in a safe and gentle way. This journey is documented on my blog www.yogamamma.tumblr.com.
After many years of teaching in London I am back in my native Oslo, where I continue to teach dynamic Hatha and pre/post natal.
Yoga is not about becoming someone else, someone better. It is about rediscovering and accepting who you really are, beneath the layers of social expectations, destructive habits and general stress and agitation of modern life. For me, teaching yoga is about gently guiding people back to themselves, to find the stillness and strength within.
Vienna, AustriaAshtanga Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pre & Postnatal YogaAn affair of the heart.
Since my first encounter with yoga, it is an integral part of my life. With yoga I found the key to my heart. It opens my body, my mind, and my soul through thoughtful movement and conscious breathing. This meditative process makes me experience a unique sense of wholeness and touches my heart.
I’m offering Ashtanga and Yin yoga classes for beginners and advancers in individual and group lessons and, since recently, classes in pre- and postnatal yoga. It is my desire to share my experiences and knowledge with my students.
London, United KingdomVinasya & Pregnancy YogaGrowing up in South America gave Kirsty a wonderful insight into the kindness and generosity of the human spirit and how those with nothing seemed so happy. This upbringing led her to yoga which gave much more meaning to her life when she realised she'd got caught up in the 'want, want' lifestyle.
Conscious of how intimidating a class can feel to walk into, Kirsty helps her students feel supported and secure in her classes by teaching in a playful way allowing you to build up your practice step by step. Laughter is encouraged. She teaches vinyasa and pregnancy yoga but doesn't like to pigeonhole her style of teaching as she trained with so many great teachers and takes the 'best' bits to pass onto her students.
Kirsty writes for yoga and wellbeing websites, Yoga Magazine and has a successful blog about all things yoga related.
