Hey there!


Here is a little info about what kinda world you have
navigated yourself into  »



Stiina Casandra Andersen
is my chosen name.
I have been working as a yoga teacher since 2014.
So far I have completed 750 hours RYT certified yoga, Ayurvedic & health education.

I absolutely love what I do – sharing my passionate work with people gives me so much joy!


Creative work is also included in that equation:
photo, film, writing or a movement expression of some sort
– you name the game and I will probably take the challenge.


A long story short:

I am born and raised in the northern part of Norway where the midnight sun is the queen in the summer and the northern lights governs the throne when winter comes along. Although I appreciate the magical piece of land that I grew up in, my itchy toes lead me out on adventure at the age of 17 when I first lived away from home, then for a year in England. Since then the travel bug has never let go of me, and I have been feeding it with many travels out and about in our world of wonders for some time now.

Why did I start with yoga?

Then I changed my life, or I had no other choice…
Long story short: I experienced some serious health challenges that created the contrasts I needed to navigate my way to the path I am walking today. Back then my whole life fell apart, but now I can look back, connect the dots and clearly see why it all happened the way it did (you can read the story here).  I was meant to find my passion, my everyday healing practice and a way to share that transformative energy with others too. I was meant to find yoga – not only as a physical practice, but more importantly as a way of being, living my life and working with what I love. 

Looking back now I can clearly see that the hardships I had been through gave me the contrasts I needed to discover the blessings in disguise. In the beginning I didn’t believe in the transforming power of a practice like yoga, I didn’t believe that it could help me when nothing else had, but I am happy to say that I was wrong… Now I am an example of what yoga has done for me. I am no longer in disease, I am happy and healthy (at least most of the time), and I am beyond words grateful for the positive  transformation this life changing practice has given me. There is a unique healing power that can be created
when we decide to work with the body – from the inside and out. All of us has to start somewhere, and it’s not always at the bright side that we begin. 


The true value of yoga is revealed when we use the yoga poses to get into the body, rather than using the body to get into the pose.

Yoga  ≈  union
We aim to practice in a way that unites every part of our
body and being
