Hi! My name is Lizandra and I am a Yoga Teacher as well as an Ayurvedic Health Consultant.
I am originally from Portugal and have lived in Sweden since 2011. Meditation has always existed in my life but later on I started developing the interest for yoga. As my own asana (positions) practice started, my children became very interested in yoga as well, and that was how I started to explore and became certified in children’s yoga.
I believe that yoga gives children not only the physical abilities but also the emotional and mental tools that they can use throughout their lives. Children are intuitive, loving and open-minded beings and the future is not in their hands, it lies in our hands parents, teachers and society. They do what we do and not what we say …
No less for adults, yoga contributes to an increased awareness of one’s body but also one’s life. Every day is a new day, a new opportunity, a new lesson. For me, this means being able to be here and now and being part of my life, which means, maybe not being able to control what happens, but being able to control how one reacts and which decisions one makes.
I’m just grateful to be able to bring this ancient knowledge into small people’s and big people’s lives!
