"Yogah citta-vritti-nirodhah"


Yoga is the stilling of the changing states of the mind

Patañjalis Yoga sutras, I:2

The richness of Yoga

One meaning of the Sanskrit word yoga is to ”unite”. Body, soul and mind can meet as one in yoga. Furthermore, unity in yoga also implies that we are connected with each other and with the source of everything.

Yoga is characterized by activity and movement, but just as much by rest, relaxation, emotional, reflective and subtle energy work. Through different physical body movements we train strength, stability, flexibility, balance and focus. With breathing exercises we train ourselves to listen within, feel the life force, increase the energy level and affect our body and mind in a positive direction. Even affirmations, visualization, relaxation, mantra and chanting are powerful tools within yoga. Through observation of the mind we are also given a possibility to change emotional and mental patterns. With conscious movement and breath, stillness, presence in the Now and focused attention, transformation and healing can take place. 

In the tradition of

T. Krishnamacharya

T. Krishnamacharya, born in 1888, was a pioneer in his work of spreading and vitalizing the yoga when it was about to die out in India at the end of the 1920s. He taught many well-known yoga teachers in India, among others his own son TKV Desikachar, A.G. & Indra Mohan (Svastha yoga), BKS Iyengar (Iyengar yoga) and Pattabhi Jois (Ashtanga yoga). Thousands of people from India, but also from other countries studied with him up to his death in 1989. This kind of classical yoga is still relevant for our modern society as the tools and the techniques shall respect and be adapted to every individual’s needs, wishes. abilities, and situation.

Jeannette Persson Stüben

Yoga Teacher &

Internationally Certified Yoga Therapist

- with an intention to work for increased

balance, health and a more conscious world.

After a M.sc. in International Relations and languages and a Diploma of Education for the Folk High School, several years working professionally as an adult educator at the Red Cross as well as six rewarding and developing years with different occupations in Asia, my yoga path led me in 2009 to open up a small Yoga studio in Mariefred, Sweden. After 10 wonderful years there we moved to Paris, France, where I am now active and continuing my work in the same spirit.

 

Since September 2017 I am C-IAYT certified at The International Association of Yoga Therapists after the following yoga teacher and yoga therapy trainings:

2013--2016: Svastha Yoga of Krishnamacharya Therapy Program, 300 hours.

Teachers: Dr. Ganesh Mohan & Dr. Günter Niessen

2010-2013: Yogaskolan.se in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, 500 hours.

Teachers: Hanna Staaf, Karina Freij & Eva-Marie Henriksson.

2009: Primary yoga teaching certificate, 250 hours, yoga alliance recognized Yoga Limbs in Hong Kong. Teachers: The Hewitt family.

 .

As a yoga teacher I am constantly learning from my students, my own teaching experience, other teachers, books and from other sources of study. My post-graduate yoga teacher training has been mainly in the field of yoga therapy and how to individualize yoga, but yoga philosophy/yoga sutra studies, yogic mindfulness and ayurveda have been other areas of interest.


I’m happy to share my knowledge and understanding of yoga with you!
