Ulrika’s fluid style of teaching yoga is inspired by her background in psycho-somatic movement, anatomy, expressive arts and dance. A lover of movement, breath, body and spirit, Ulrika combines the transformative power of Yoga with metaphors of nature, inspirational anecdotes and uplifting insights from yoga philosophy and various wisdom traditions. Many say a class with Ulrika is never the same, every yoga practice is creative, strengthening and inspiring and postures are woven together in inovative sequences that follow breath and music along the energy lines of body and mind.
