Annika is a movement enthusiast with experience in martial arts, gymnastics, parkour and freerunning, cross-training, natural movement and more.
She is a certified and experienced Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher, inspired by Anusara Yoga and natural movement.
VINYASA FLOW YOGA
In my dynamic Vinyasa flow classes I guide you through creative and powerful sequences. We are connecting postures (asanas), focusing on breath and conscious movement while you get to explore the beauty of being yourself.
My classes build up step by step to prepare you to go from easy to more complex asanas and movements.
YOGA MOVES CLASSES
As kids we just move and play, it’s our nature. As we become adults we lose this instinct and we begin to lack mobility and elasticity. This dynamic class is designed to regain natural human movement skills and playfulness. I combine Yoga, natural movement (animal movement) and body-weight training. Training can be fun and it should be!
If you want to get a different perspective on life, why not look at it from upside down?
Handstands are fun and an amazing way to train your whole body and your mind. It teaches focus, relaxation in tension and great awareness of the body.
I offer simple step-by-step guidelines, individual tips and tricks so you can safely begin or improve your journey to handstands.
RELAXATION AND FOCUS
Training the mind is like training a muscle.
It’s simple, yet it’s not easy to create a state of inner peace and stillness. Guidance can be a great support as we begin our meditation practice. My Yoga classes always include a short meditation practice. I also offer guided breathing meditation and Yoga Nidra – the yogic sleep.
If we push our comfort zones enough in everyday life, we sometimes need exactly the opposite: The privilege of doing nothing.
In restorative Yoga we consciously allow ourselves to slow down. Holding the seated and reclined postures for longer periods of time, using the support of lots of props like blankets or blocks we can reset our nervous system and find deep relaxation.
Yin Yoga is a delicious practice that’s designed around stillness and space. It’s about cultivating awareness for what’s happening while you hold gentle and passive stretches for longer periods of time. The aim is to regenerate the connective tissue that connects everything within (muscles, bones, organs, skin, brain, lymphatic system, nervous system, etc).
Turning the world upside down requires quite some courage.
If you are curious and eager to learn handstands but you don’t know where to start, or how to continue, then private sessions are a great way to work individually with where you are. Together we will safely work towards progress in your handstand practice so you can finally find trust and balance on your hands.
