When I was a kid, I went to the Swedish outdoor education school ‘Skogs Mulle’. My grandpa had a farm and there was still undeveloped land in the city where me and my friends could roam free.
Hoping to could help change the world, I got a Masters degree in Political Science. I worked many years with interdisciplinary, student-led sustainability education at the Centre for Environment and Development Studies at Uppsala University, Sweden. I also worked at the Swedish youth environmental and naturalist association.
Feeling stressed and worried about the state of the world, I turned to yoga and my own ecosystem. I became a Satyananda yoga teacher and I lived a few months at the Yasodhara Ashram in Kootenay Bay. When my kids started school, I started to teach yoga to their class and have led kids yoga in Nelson. Now I am volunteering with the Shambhala Meditation Centre and their children’s program. I have an updated first aid training and insurance.
The forest is my second home. I see so much healing happening outdoors, so much joy. I feel blessed to connect kids with nature and to get to play!
