Get in touch with your core and develop awareness and strength in your practice
We will study how we can develop and create the important core strength we need to unload and distribute the weight on the various joints in the body when we do our asana practice.
We need strenght, balance and flexibility and through the yoga practice we will explore where we have our weaknesses and strengths.
We have a tendency to quickly go past what we need so let’s stop and explore the areas that most need our attention.
By centering us and be present in the body and the breathing without associate ourselves with our thoughts and feelings, we can live in the flow of life. In the present, in awareness
We become aware of our preconceptions and illusions. Through this increases our awareness and we can make better choices in life.

Lotta has a broad and deep knowledge of yoga with great experience to adapt and develop programs for different needs.
In Sweden, she is one of the pioneers of the more physically oriented yoga. For many years she ran, together with a business partner, one of Stockholm’s largest yoga studios. Her strength lies in her capacity to adapt training for individuals and groups, as she is very perceptive of people ́s varying needs.

She has developed and led yoga teaching training programs that include theory, techniques, training and mentoring as well as training programs for pregnant women, young people and various businesses.
