My name is Lea

My life? It is Yoga. I was lucky to study directly with founders of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Integral, Tibetan and Restorative Yogas; over 30+ years of practice included founding Scandinavian Zenit Yoga studio, published 3 yoga books & papers, currently doing PhD in Psychology. 


Passion? Passing on Yoga knowledge and practices through teacher trainings and retreats. Qualities? Sincere, experienced, non-dogmatic, free, funny, wise, peaceful (deep within :D). Certificates? Bunch of them, approved by E-500 RYT/ & IYAT. Family? Yes, two loving boys.
