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 govern 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 when I  look back, I can 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 with all of you. I was meant to find yoga – not only as a physical practice but more importantly as a way of understanding life & working with what I love. 
 

Looking back now I can clearly see that the hardships I have been through gave me the contrasts I needed to discover the blessings in disguise. In the beginning, I didn’t believe in the healing power of practicing 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 live my life fully! Thanks to what started as a 20-minute restorative yoga practice at home and later became my recipe for a happy & healthy body, mind & soul. I am no longer in disease, and I am beyond words grateful for the transformational value that yoga as a practice, education & lifestyle can give us when we are willing to receive it.

 

Yoga is not limited to only movements on a mat. The true essence of yoga goes deeper than just the physical focus. Yoga aims to connect both the body, mind, and soul as a unity    all equally important for attaining and maintaining a happy and healthy you.

 

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 have to start somewhere, and it’s not always on the bright side that we begin.

 

 


Yoga  ≈  union/unity 

We aim to practice yoga (on and off the mat)
in a way that unites every part of our

body and being
