“I was fortunate to meet many yoga teachers during my life. They always gave me warmth and support, and under their guidance I learnt yoga.

I believe that when we practice yoga consistently and devotional, one day we will be able to overcome life’s challenges and our fear of death, not just by intellectual reasoning and getting experience in facing our problems, but because a real realization happens. Yoga is the way. Yoga is the means to understand the truth, not just for health and well being, not just for living. Yoga is everything in life to me.

I am a certified yoga teacher from the International Sivananda Yoga Centre. I hold a master degree in Buddhism, where yoga is also the part of the course, and I studied Sanskrit, the language of yoga, at the Sanskrit University and the White Gompa.” See more photos and other events by this presenter

Anouk Aoun

Attending my first class back in 1997 Yoga soon became a daily practice, in and beyond its physical aspects. After many years of practice I completed my teacher training with Brahmani Yoga in India. Since 2010, under the guidance of Julie Martin I have been teaching at several of Brahmani’s Teacher Training programs and public classes of Asana, Pranayama and Meditation. When not in India I live in Bali where I teach public and private classes and at the Intuitive Flow Yoga teacher training.

Today, my sharing of these practices is deeply inspired by my heart teacher and partner Emil Wendel.

Working with breath, movement and meditation Yoga allows me to reach a center point in which I feel a sense of stillness and attentiveness, a place out of which I feel content and grounded. From this place, I am able to share life with other Beings around me in a harmonious and joyous way.

I see teaching as an act of giving and devotion; my intention is to guide and inform my students, and to encourage us all to remain inquisitive, adventurous and non-dogmatic along the mysterious and magical journey that life is. See more photos and other events by this presenter

Born in Norway and following a career in contemporary dance, Ellen started practicing Ashtanga in 1994 at Jivamukti Yoga Center New York. A keen practitioner ever since, she has studied with teachers worldwide, was authorized from KPJYI, Mysore by Sharath Rangaswamy in 2006, and has completed 2-year teacher training with John Scott.

She also founded the first Ashtanga Yoga studio in Norway, Ashtanga yoga Oslo. Over recent years she has dedicated herself to Buddhist, Sanskrit and Himalayan Language studies, which has deeply influenced her teaching of Yoga as a tool for self-transformation and her understanding of the culture and traditions of Yoga and Nepal.
