Hi! My name is Deborah. Welcome to Djursholm Yoga, a place to share my love for great food (just healthy and feel-good food, with a good helping of veggies, most of it sugar free), contemplate aloud about a yogic lifestyle and document my journey as a yoga teacher.
I have practiced on and off for more than ten years and initially found the spiritual part of yoga the hardest to tap into. It was only when I was pregnant with my first daughter in 2008/2009 that I learned to open up and surrender. Today, I couldn’t live without regular meditation and I have developed a deep love for Indian mythology.
I believe that yoga is for everyBody, no matter your physical abilities, age or body shape. If you have tried yoga before and didn’t like it, chances are that you just haven’t found the right yoga for you.
I am a certified and registered yoga teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance and The British Wheel of Yoga. My training includes a 390 hours Hatha yoga teacher training with Kate Ellis and Catherine Annis at triyoga, London, a Vinyasa yoga immersion with Mimi Kuo-Deemer, an introductory training into yoga therapy as well as a 1:2:1 training with Kate Ellis.
I am also a Karma Kids New York certified kids teacher and teach classes from toddlers to teens.
My gratitude goes out to my teachers Kate, Catherine and Mimi, as well as Indian Philosophy scholar Carlos Pomeda, who has enabled me to access and understand the vast world of yoga history and traditions.
I live and teach in the Stockholm archipelago. Most of my classes are Hatha open classes, i.e. they are great if you want to try yoga for the first time, if you want to get back into your practice after some time off the mat, or if you want to deepen your practice. My Vinyasa flow classes are faster and more dynamic – it helps to have stood on a yoga mat before your first Vinyasa class.
In addition to yoga classes, I offer 1:1 sessions, often with a therapeutic focus. They are a great way to work on specific issues or to get back onto the mat after an injury.
