I started the journey back to myself in the early 80’s and my path has been marked with yoga, travels, drumming circles, Native American rituals, art, art therapy and nature trails. The journey back to myself has been about finding self-love and self-acceptance.
For many years I thought something was missing and that I was somehow incomplete. Then, somewhere along the way, I realized that I actually did not need to add anything to myself to become whole, rather I was already whole and had been complete all along. What I actually needed to do was to learn to let go – to release self-blame, self-doubt and, at times, even self-loathing. I learned that finding my way back home, was about fostering compassion for myself exactly as I am in each moment.
Born and raised in Denmark, I was encouraged to constantly engage with creativity and free play, both in school and in my free time.
Later, I relocated to the United States where I not only needed to refine my English reading and writing skills, but also graduated from UCLA, gained experience in social work and teaching ESL, and became immersed in ceramic art. It was there that I began to appreciate the American values of celebrating diversity, and believing in and pursuing one’s dreams. This mentality enabled me to see endless possibilities to develop myself, and empowered me to combine them with the spirit and values I had learned as a child.
In 2020 I relocated back to Denmark after over twenty years away, where I now work to promote these values of creativity, free play, the pursuit of dreams, and inclusivity, in my yoga teaching and art therapy. As a teacher, I open and hold a space for you to be you, so that you can let go of what no longer serves you, and you can find your own path of connection to your full potential.
