"Yoga is the perfect opportunity to be curious about who you are."
- Jason Cradell
Ylva is a yoga teacher from the eastern part of Norway who recently moved to Voss to be closer to the mountains and the countless outdoor-fun possibilities that exist here.
Ylva completed her Level 1. Yoga qualification in Goa in 2015, and her Level 2. in Rishikesh in 2016 as her passion for teaching grew bigger. She is now an E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher, and has expanded her expertise into other branches of yoga such as SUP & Aerial.
Since 2015 she has based herself on Sri Lanka's South Coast as a freelance yoga instructor and meditation guide, where she also host SUP & Yoga Retreats.
In 2021 she paddled Scandinavia's longest river system from source to sea on a Tandem Paddleboard with her husband. The couple travelled 770km over 46 days from Femundsmarka Naional Park to Gothenburg becoming the first people to ever do so.
As an active person, Ylva know the importance of complimenting yoga to outdoor activities such as surfing, kayaking and hiking. By combining body, breath and mind she lead her students into a state that makes them more present and satisfied in an active lifestyle.
