Getting out of the cocoon

During the isolation time movement rituals, self care practice and music where a big anker for me. Currently I am gradually transitioning back to connecting to more people, giving Bodyworksessions, making music together and training capoeira outdoors.

So as I am moving out of the cocoon I feel supermotivated to offer self care sessions for small groups in Graz again. I am looking for a good spot outdoors more Info coming soon.

A big thank you from the heart for the inspiration over the last weeks to:

Here with Rose, who I have watched blossom from a small bud these last few days. She reminds me that through all this we are going through there is still space for growth, creativity and so much more.
I'd been stuck in this space of worry of 'how am I going to pay rent and bills' (a thought many millions are probably having right now) that I'd forgotten I'm on Earth, alive and healthy. I'd forgotten that unlike many millions living in war torn places I live in a safe part of the world with access to clean water and amazing food. I'd been caught up in 'me' that I'd forgotten we are all connected. As I write this, its not to push away concerns and worries that many are living right now. It's a reminder to myself that may resonate within others we are all one.
This morning in my meditation practice, I used the mantra Sohum. I am connected to universe. This then led into a practice with my teacher Satu Tuomela who said something that resonated within me so much. Sit with the not knowing. 🌎
Let's practice this week together online. Thursday 9am (french time) and Sunday 10am. Reserve via this link.
I realise that many teachers are offering free things online. You may wonder why I am not. This is my living, my passion, my energy, my life which I'd love to be able to continue.

Once again we gather for the very special training THE ALCHEMIST. This time we will be going to EGYPT - the ultimate feminine empowerment vortex!

This gentle, integrative practice creates a sacred space where time expands and slows down, allowing you to find your deepest sense of self.

Through developing awareness and loving kindness, we gain a felt sense of our “interrelatedness” (yoga) and can become a more fully inhabited embodied being.

This years 100h HEART module will be taking place at one of most beautiful retreat spaces in Denmark, ‘Mellem-rummet’. It is an old charming farm house that has been lovingly restored and the old barn has been converted into an amazing yoga space. The facility is surrounded by beautiful beaches and open fields for you to immerse yourself in. A safe place for you to truly arrive and listen.

You will be guided on this journey by the incredible teacher and facilitator Satu Tuomela & dive into the world of Yoga Philosophy together with our lovely Mike Bloch-Levermore.

We are up to the last spots, so be quick!

5 incredible days [email protected] training with Satu Tuomela . Feeling so grateful for the journey and wisdom. Looking forward to sharing what I’ve learnt and spreading the magic 😊🙏🏻💖✨💫

Listening 🤲🏼

You can listen with more than your ears. In fact, your whole being.

Rest your weighted presence onto your bones. Bones have a quality of silence in them. They are also conduits for sound.

Through them we can tap into a subtle power to listen a lot more and sense more clearly where we are in space. Muscles are always alert, I call them puppies 🐶, Ready to react on the signals from the brain through motor nerves, make you move, make things happen, get you places etc.. For as the bones are more responsive. They get you HERE. They listen and gather information through the sensory nerves that are distributed to the articular ends and periosteum of the bones. They are intuitive and so so wise.

Initiating movements from inside out, the information and initiation can go from BONES to MUSCLES. Bones will tell the muscles where you are related to space and gravity and from there movement ripples gracefully and in an Embodied, most natural, way: Bones carry weight, not muscles like many times in the modern age of yoga.

The “I-sense” emanates through from your bones to muscles to skin and out and back again. fluid body and the information web (like I call fascia) is there to embrace this reciprocity, connectivity and will enhance and support it.

Get out of your own way. Let the body lead. Let your organic pattern, Authentic Flow, rise!



There’s really only one limitation: our limited access to wisdom. (Paraphrasing Shambavi Saraswati)

When life throws a curve ball surprisingly I’m relaxing into life more. Guess I’ve accessed more wisdom… ♥️ just grateful for all teachings, practices and community. Grateful, grateful, grateful! It truly is so that you never know, and you don’t have to when you are relaxed and without resistance to whatever is.

Saturday love your way from SPRING in Portugal ❤️‍🔥

Ever-present beauty of humanhood ❤️‍🔥

in my work, through this material and transmission, there’s a certain kind of mystery, a delicate, intimate, scent like reality…and it almost feels wrong to be shared through photos…

Can you see beyond? You are invited.

Can you listen through your eyes? give it a go.

Can you hear it? listen carefully.

Life is right here.

Not there.

Thank you for your help to transpire this absolute magic I got to witness 🌹


These times. Big big big… 💫

We’ve lost some precious humans in our tribe. Some taken way too young. Only a couple of weeks old…I keep thinking why now, why so many, why babies, why why…

This month will be one of the most important in my life. Just saying, I’m not trying to make it about me, this month is pivotal for all of us. so pray, sit, practice… for the awakening of us all.

It might just happen…

My sweet Luca Bowie! 7 years TODAY! I love how we have had so many adventures together, you’ve literally traveled around the world twice already! I think one thing it has supported you with it is that, you are so so empathetic toward all living beings, Ahimsa embodied. I love how you and Billie are best friends and you take such good care of her, even though she’s a handful 😆! I love how artistic your spirit is and also how emotionally intelligent you naturally are. You also see things very clearly! You see beauty but also pain! I just said in our teacher training for that I must bestow you with the teachings of NST soon as you see so much and feel so so much too! I will support you, no matter what. I love you beyond’s the beyond 🌌



I can’t believe this girl is 3 already and we are moving back to Sweden!

LIFE 💜 such a fun ride when you relax into it’s ways in total confidence (or at least almost 😬).


Impermanence has been on my mind lately. This is btw not from me, I heard it somewhere some time ago. it resonates so much!

Prepare for future or/and prepare for eternity?

There’s so much here that the brain cannot really get as the simultaneous “apearings” and actions seem impossible.

You are not actually coming you are going AND you are coming and going continuously at the same time. Might sound morbid but for me, this practice of devotion of impermanence gives peace and joy 🥲 this life truly is miraculous!

It can wave as love! ❤️

What thoughts and sensations/feelings does this evoke in you?


Honoring testimonials, and myself 💜

This does not come easy for me. I’m sure many can relate! Anyone that has ever been to my trainings know how hard this is for me, and the one time I posted my bio here some guy pointed out how lame it is to post your own bio of yourself here to self promote 😆

well well, what are most people actually doing on social media? All I can see is pretty much self promotion of bodies, abilities to do hard (and weird) stuff and best memes of course 😆

So here goes one of my self appreciation posts that will continue every now and then! I’ve promised myself that.

IM PROUD OF ME! I’ve grown so much as s teacher during 2020-2023 as Ive studied and practices more than ever. As a school of Authentic Flow (born 2008) we’ve grown so much! And our community is so inclusive it makes me emotional and filled with gratitude literally many times a day. I never had this myself going to trainings (not like this) so it just makes it even more special. I always wanted to be able to create inclusive communities and I’ve succeeded. Yay me and us! And yeah this testimonial is not even about that… but Katherine, when I get your photo I’ll post the whole testimonial, I promise. It’s so huge so I have to take baby steps with this. 🤗

Welcome to my beautiful MESS and after practice bliss 🧡

I don’t so often do this, but as an ambassador and a lover of .k.yogawear I gotta give a shout-out to this leotard that keeps everything where they should be 😆 and that is truly hard after three kids and sizable b***s.

Go get yours and use my code “SATU” for 15% off (I think 😘).

Love you and THANK YOU .k.yogawear see you soon in Ubud! 🌸


It’s paralyzing to live our lives in a huge fear of making a mistake.
The whole learning process MUST include failure (what ever that is to us). Mistakes are part of our path.

In fact, when we recognize the nature of self, in the absolute realm, mistakes and un-mistakes are equal in value, so how can we even say there are such things as mistakes?

It’s just what it is. We might not like the consequences but does that make it a mistake?

Just some stuff I’m contemplating after finishing guiding yet another yoga & somatics teacher training ❤️

Mistake, mistake, mistake.
I follow the unmistakable path…


COMING UP 🕉️ Stockholm, Sweden
May 16 - 23

This is for you that desires a steady and fruitful seated practice, loves philosophy and wants to offer more in depth Tantrik Sādhanā to yourself and your students + bring a whole new level to somatics!

Also, as this will be in it will be at an inclusive pricing with pay what you can price, minimum 650€, including the 100h yoga alliance certified training (part of our 300h training), manual and snacks.

🤗 We got you! And if you know me and , you know this is our fave fave FAVE subject to speak about, practice and share.

More info coming soon, just putting all together! (We are eager to share SO MUCH!)but you can already prebook your spot by emailing [email protected]

Me and my other kids 🎈


What does ‘being free’ mean to you?

I find that most of us look at it in a very relative sense. Like being free to do what we want, being free to choose who we love, being free to travel, work etc. the way that we want.

These are very privileged freedoms, and yet, they just point to us being privileged enough to be able decided.

True freedom is being free even beyond decisions, beyond conditions, and not just doing what ever we want. That is still bound to have an effect on something/someone.

Can we ever really be free from cause and effect? I think so, but not in the way it would seemingly manifest.

my theme for this year is FREEDOM. In the absolute sense. What’s yours?


👋🏼 you!

Thank you for being (here) with me

after the most painfully and beautifully unstoppable heart opening year of my life, I am ready to give like never before.

HAPPIEST NEW YEAR 2023 friends! I love you so so much!


Quiet friend who has come so far,
feel how your breathing makes more space around you.
Let this darkness be a bell tower
and you the bell. As you ring,

what batters you becomes your strength.
Move back and forth into the change.
What is it like, such intensity of pain?
If the drink is bitter, turn yourself to wine.

In this uncontainable night,
be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses,
the meaning discovered there.

And if the world has ceased to hear you,
say to the silent Earth: I flow.
To the rushing water, speak: I am.
- Rilke




I have had the most wonderful, busy, stressful, surprising, fun, loving, connecting and awakening year. I have been trusted with so so much and I have not taken it lightly. I’m growing and evolving… and feeling a big big shift on the way for 2023. Maybe it will be around how I work, or perhaps something else. Everyone knows I should work less haha 😆 but luckily I’m very energetic. Must be all the practice and support from our community 🤗.

It’s time to reflect and be with family now.❤️

I’ll see you though online this Friday and for the Liminal Alchemy retreat online 28.12-1.1.

Much much love and enjoy Christmas everyone. 💫 🎄

Hope you are as excited as us! With 💫

Who’s IN?


Sunday conversations between friends ❤️

“Hey love. Enlighten me please!

I’m a bit confused over the concept of karma in direct realization traditions.

As we are doing sadhana to break free of the constructs/conditions made by our environment etc. , also including karmic patterns, but then in an absolute sense we cannot create karma? As everything happens exactly how it happens. It’s just that we are stuck in the relative? And believe and perpetuate the karmas until we don’t? But then what about free will versus cause and effect?”

“Hehe, big questions for a Sunday evening, but my take is that when there is no attachment to the I-self there is no one to whom the karma belongs - yet in the relative the body-mind process may still be propelled through habitual karma - and we may still cause trouble for ourselves and other. Since most of our karma comes from desire of the I-self, some will just naturally fall away, but I am with adyashanti on that it is a gradual process”

“I love the Tibetan saying to keep the view vast as the sky, and actions fine as flower (or grain)”

“Some say there is an element of free will, some don't.. I do think that there are more options available to us as we break some karmic patterns, but what causes us to break those patterns?

“I think as that happenes, we are more aligned with nature and aliveness itself so the desire is not I anymore, it’s Us”

“I heard someone say, "how to be free of karma? Just unbecome the person to whom the karma applies." And though it can be helpful to get rid of some karma attached to certain stories, there is still deep rooted patterns and blindspots.. That's why we keep practicing”


(Let us know if you like these 🤗 just thought to share)


UBUD calling! 🌸

It’s my absolute pleasure to announce, that after offering teacher trainings in Bali for around 8 years, I’m going to offer my first open masterclass at my fave yoga studio there 💜

Pretty stoked to offer this somatic journey on the 5th of February! please go to my links to book. And please share the word! I know I’ll be there with etc. 🔥

Much love! hope to see you there.

I kinda like December ❤️🎄

May you be loved!

“Right NOW there are Tibetan Buddhist monks in a temple in the Himalayas endlessly reciting mantras for the cessation of your suffering and for the flourishing of your happiness.

Someone you haven't met yet is already dreaming of adoring you.

Someone is writing a book that you will read in the next two years that will change how you look at life.

A farmer is looking at his organic crops and whispering, "nourish them."

Someone wants to make tea for you.

Someone else is willing to lend you money.

Someone in your orbit has something immensely valuable to give you — for free.

Something is being invented in the next few years that will change how your generation lives, communicates, heals and passes on.

Thousands of people are in yoga classes right now intentionally sending light out from their heart and wrapping it around the earth.

Millions of children are assuming that everything is amazing and will always be that way.

Someone is in profound pain, and a few months from now, they'll be thriving like never before. From where they are, they just can't see it.

Someone who is craving to be partnered, to be acknowledged, will get precisely what they want — and even more. And because that gift will be so fantastical in its reach and sweetness, it will alter their memory of angsty longing and render it all "So worth the wait."

Someone has recently cracked open their joyous, genuine nature because they did the hard work of hauling years of oppression off of their psyche — this luminous juju is floating in the ether, and is accessible to you.

Someone just this second wished for world peace, in earnest.

Some civil servant is making sure that you get your mail, and your rubbish is picked up, that the trains are running on time, and that you are generally safe.

Someone is dedicating their days to protecting your civil liberties and clean drinking water.

Someone is regaining their sanity.

Someone is genuinely forgiving the seemingly unforgivable.

Someone is curing the incurable.

Someone is just now recovering from a near-death experience.

Don’t give up!

I love you “
