Having found more hope for a better world through yoga than through round tables and suits, Linnea, originally from Sweden, left a promising career in international relations for creating more peace in the hearts of women and men. She took the Jivamukti Yoga 300-hour Teacher Training in 2012 and since then teaches full time in Moscow, Russia, where she lives with her husband who is gracious enough to let her share his everyday life. She is inspired by the courage of every single person who steps onto the yoga mat, daring to turn inward instead of chasing abundant distractions without. Her classes have been described as a meditative flow of breath, music and awareness. Linnea is humbly grateful to all her teachers off the mat and on, to Sharon Gannon and David Life for creating the worldwide satsang that is Jivamukti Yoga, and to her first teacher, her mother, for being the embodiment of compassion.
"As a yogi, and particularly a yoga teacher, I try to practice the values of these teachings to the best of my ability (while still looking good doing it). Therefore, it is wonderful to see a clothing company like Wellicious that adheres to these guidelines, promoting sustainability and social responsibility as their core values."
