Teaching over here has been a lovely experience! I started my journey in the beautiful city of Gothenburg. Located on the southwestern coast of Sweden, the people of Gothenburg are intelligent, gentle and open to the teachings of Anusara yoga. My week began at Yoga Buddhi, which is an up-and-coming center for yoga education in this second largest Swedish metropolis.
I taught classes at the studio and held a workshop. The workshop was rewarding because of the level of dedication of everyone involved. Over the 10-hour weekend, we all became well acquainted, contemplated the 5 powers of Consciousness, and were able to enjoy a deeper practice together! Many of the community members happen to be enrolled in a 108-hour “Anusara Immersion,” and as a result, demonstrated profound knowledge and skill.
We were very blessed and honored to welcome a few travelers representing the Yoga Today community! Annika brought her family up from Germany for the weekend, and Gunn and Monique journeyed all the way from Norway! It was incredibly special to meet Yoga Today yogis face-to-face and I am so grateful that they were able to make the trek and join us with open hearts☺
From there it was off to Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, where I spent a lovely evening connecting with members of their sweet and thriving yoga community. With two days of teaching at Studio Frid I had the treasured opportunity to get to know everyone as completely as was possible in such a short period of time.
One of the many wonderful things about yoga studios in Sweden has been the hospitality. Leslie (in Malmo) had hot tea and snacks ready after class. Anja (in Gothenberg) offered her students sugar-free hot chocolate. How sweet it has been to enjoy time with our Swedish yogi counterparts in-person… I am so honored and inspired.
