the path of love

The path of love

awakening the heart center

The teaching at Yogi Living is based on awakening the heart center and grounded on the principle of integrating mind and body.

We teach forms of yoga learned directly from Indian yogis and Tibetan monks and supported by modern scientific research. We believe love has the power to heal and transform peoples lives and that authentic love is the key component missing from most peoples lives.

Our approach to yoga supports optimal brain function and harmony between mind and body. As a result, Yogi Living students have more ability to handle stress and a deeper, richer experience of life. We also see a noticeable increase in expressions of happiness, love, and compassion.

Welcome To Yogi Living

Moonlight over green meadows,
Summerlight over fields of corn,
Scent of flowers from garden meads,
And in the forest singing of birds

Yoga Alliance International

I created Yogi living Ashram as a place for laughter and the company of good friends as much as an center for creating balance in heart, mind and body.

I believe in science and in the unifying force of love. And I believe in happiness and that personal growth does not need a guru or a master. Change happens within and flows out into the world like ripples on a lake.

frequently asked questions

Following the Path of Love means taking control of your vital energy. Unblocking energetic pathways and activating kundalini creates the flow state and is achieved through three approaches:

  1. Yoga therapy: activating the vagus nerve for deep stress release.
  2. Kundalini Yoga teaches you how to activate your chakra and Kundalini energy and go deep into yourself.
  3. Classical Tantra: techniques for merging with universal energy, often using the mirror of another person.

Classical Tantra emphasizes the union of opposites, such as male and female energies, through various practices including meditation, yoga, ritual, and mantra recitation. These practices are often aimed at achieving spiritual liberation or enlightenment, as well as worldly goals such as health, prosperity, and power.

It uses teachings and practices that involve the cultivation of shakti, or vital energy, within the body. This focuses on the subtle energy channels known as nadis and the awakening of the dormant spiritual energy known as Kundalini.

Kundalini Yoga is often regarded as a powerful and transformative practice, but it is also known for its potential to bring up intense emotional and energetic experiences. The practice involves a combination of physical postures (asanas), breathwork (pranayama), chanting (mantra), meditation, and various other techniques designed to awaken and harness the energy of Kundalini.

Kundalini Yoga emphasises the use of specific sequences of movements, called kriyas, which are intended to produce specific effects on the body, mind, and spirit. These kriyas typically involve repetitive movements, dynamic breathing patterns, and focused meditation.

Yoga therapy is a holistic approach to healing and wellness that utilizes the principles and practices of yoga to address physical, mental, and emotional health issues. It integrates traditional yoga techniques with modern therapeutic approaches to promote overall well-being and to alleviate specific health concerns.

Yoga therapy sessions are typically conducted one-on-one or in small groups, allowing for individualized attention and adjustments. It may utilize any or all of the following: asana (physcal postures), Ppanayama (breathwork), meditation and mindfulness, relaxation techniques, yoga philosophy and lifestyle guidance.

All classes at Yogi Living are taught in English. Yogi Living Ashram resident yoga teacher Winnie Winnetu also speaks Swedish, French, German and Danish so basic translation can be provided.

Not at all. Anyone can join in our courses. We do not teach complicated asanas at Yogi Living and always adjust to the needs of students.

Students with more experience are encouraged to focus their attention inward and use more meditative or energetic techniques.

Living as a tantrika

Yoga can change your life. I know because it happened to me. I had a prestigious career in political science, but I wanted more freedom, love and joy in my life. So, I took a huge risk. I put my career behind me and left for India to study yoga.

I hope Living As A Tantrika inspires you to practice yoga and one day come see us here at Yogi Living or one of our retreats.
