I met this lovely lady recently at Purple Valley where she had come to practice Ashtanga. I am all for mixing styles and finding what suits your body so when I found out that Magdalena was a famous Yin teacher and bestselling author I was very keen to interview her. She is so relaxed and full of enthusiasm, that whatever she is doing definitely works for her and maybe will for you too 🙂
With the popularity of the book which was originally only available in Swedish “Vila dig I form med Yinyoga” (and the app with the same name) it is now out in English under the title: ”Serenity Yin yoga – Rest Yourself into a calm mind & healthy body” (LUX).
Magdalena has a relaxed and non-sectarian approach to both yoga and meditation. Apart from Yin Yoga her personal practice is Ashtanga Yoga and Vipassana meditation.
Since many years it is Yin Yoga that has been her main teaching style and she is among the first ones teaching it in Scandinavia. Magdalena’s ability to weave together physical yoga-practice and meditation in a simple yet profound way makes her classes emotionally and physically rewarding. She is known for her easy and humorous teaching style.
We even filmed an hour long Yin class, available soon, that you will be able to follow along with if you want to give it a try at home.
