I'm Vilde Amelia, new to teaching but very excited to start. I hope to walk this path with humility and presence, always learning. I am warm, free, playful and at times a bit whimsical. My yoga practice started out very dynamic with my background in competitive dancing. I approached my yoga practice in the same way- wanting to do the most crazy asanas and sometimes pushing myself too far. But at the same time it opened up something in me, a feeling of coming home in those magical, thoughtless moments that sometimes occurred.
Now my practice is about exploring these moments, through dynamic and soft practices. Not pushing limits, just exploring and accepting. I hope to create space for you to feel the magic that lives inside of you at all times but which we often forget. Exploring stillness in movement and movement in stillness.
When I'm not practicing I prefer to spend my time outside, in the forest or in my garden. Growing vegetables, laying down on the earth, dancing, making tea and learning about wild herbs, their medicine and their knowledge. As my heart holds a lot of love for nature and everything that grows perhaps my classes will reflect this. I enjoy working with the cycles of nature, and after all, we're all part of those cycles and our beloved mama earth.
The classes I currently teach at Raw:
Rise and shine vinyasa
This is a class dedicated to waking up the physical and energetic body, preparing you to meet the day with some extra magic.
It can include practices like pranayama, meditation, flow sequences and relaxation.
Yoga Nidra (Evening dreamtime)
This is a class where you are invited to lay down and let everything go. We hold onto so much in our waking and sleeping life and by supporting our bodies with props we can allow ourselves to feel safe and free to fully relax. I will use different methods like guided visualization, breathing exercises, body scans, sounds, poems and stillness to create a space for you to float away into dreamland.
