heart centered yoga
Imagine a world where life is not a competition,
A world where we meet each other from the heart
Supporting and holding each other every step of the way
Meeting each other with love, laughter, and affection
A world where a hug initiates your day.
We teach heart-centered yoga and the path of love.
Prayer performed every day by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
The Swedish Ashram
Enjoy the serenity of it all
Yogi Living Ashram is an oasis of calm in the southernmost part of Sweden near the Baltic Sea and a place for heart centered yoga.
Delink yourself from the outside world and relax in the unpretentious atmosphere of the ashram. You are free to roam the surrounding rural countryside, stroll along pristine white sand beaches, swim in the refreshing waves of the Baltic sea, or hang in the nature garden under ancient trees where we have a treehouse meditation platform and a jacuzzi. When the weather allows we practice heart centered yoga on the beach and once a week take an excursion (and sometimes also practice yoga) to places like the Ales Stones (known as the Swedish Stonehenge) and local castles.
The surrounding countryside is picture-postcard Sweden. There are many small picturesque villages and a mixture of rural farmland, woodland, and lakes. The wonderful coastline of the Swedish Riviera is only a bike ride away.

To me yoga is about personal transformation and heart-centered living. In my classes, I use a blend of yoga styles to maximize the healing energy flow in the body and to balance heart and mind.

The Wisdom of ancient masters
living in the flow state
Every negative thought you entertain imprints itself on your body. Given time negative thought habits obstruct the free flow of energy and your mind and heart become clouded. Life becomes a struggle.
Common symptoms of this show up as emotional instability, bad moods, stress, pain in the neck, lower back or knees, headaches, weight gain and low immunity. You are prone to disease and stress-related conditions such as high blood pressure, heart problems and even cancer.
Our body organs are connected via the meridians (energy pathways) and chakras (energy centers).
When these are blocked the flow of vital energy is restricted leading inevitably to disease. Similarly, relationships can become conflicted and unfulfilling.
Our first and most important task as yogis is to clear any energy blockages. With our life energy once again moving freely we are able to move into a life of joy, laughter and unconditional love.

Food at Yogi Living Ashram
At Yogi Living Ashram we do more than practice heart centered yoga in class, we practice heart centered living. This includes using Ayurvedic principles of cooking and believe food should be :
- Appealing to the senses — taste and appearance are an important part of the digestive process.
- Supportive of health and practice within the ashram.
- Vegetarian and freshly prepared from organic local produce wherever possible.
We buy from local producers or collected in nature for maximum taste and health. Local produce is not only better for our environment but is also more grounding.
From our small plot of land we try to grow our own salad leaves, vegetables and fruits. Apples, plums and berries can be picked directly from the trees and bushes when in season.
We cook with herbs and spices designed to support digestion and cleanse and restore your energy flow.
