is now authorized level 2 Ashtanga Yoga teacher.
The knowledge of all Yogashala Stockholm teachers are based on
several years of daily yoga exercise practicing under the
supervision of authorized or certified Ashtanga Yoga teachers.

knowledge under the guidance of the Guru of Ashtanga Yoga, Sri K
Pattabhi Jois, his daughter Saraswathi and grandson Sharath.
