EASE INTO IT
with Charlotte Eriksson
YOGA, MEDITATION & HEALING
Life might not always be easy, but it will always be beautiful.
You might call it yoga, meditation, movement ... I call it ritualistic medicine. A ritual to heal myself. To honour myself. To celebrate every single little wound or scar, triumph or transformation this body has taken me through and it's the most intimate, private, spiritual and mystical practice I have ever found.
I use yoga, meditation, visualisation and inner rituals to heal my anxiety, find strength and clarity. I am a life-long student, but sometime I also share my own practice with others, so that maybe they can learn to heal themselves too.
I am here to serve. I am here to learn. I am here to teach, when I can, what I can.
While living on the road as a songwriter, I discovered yoga and meditation, and slowly learned how to heal my own anxiety, worried mind and recover from a childhood of eating disorders. I consumed myself in the teachings, went on to do my yoga teacher training, delved deeper into mental health, massage therapy, aroma therapy and plant based nutrition. I keep educating myself about health and spiritual practices in every corner of the world.
Three years ago I started sharing my lessons and knowledge with my community, and now teach workshops and yoga classes wherever I'm welcomed during my wandering seasons of touring.
I’m a certified RYT 200h Integral Hatha, Vinyasa Yoga & Meditation Teacher. I found yoga through the philosophy and ethical guidelines, that built a beautiful comfort in my chest as I lived on the road fighting for my life as a songwriter. The Yamas and Niyamas: teachings about non-attachment, non-violence, non-judgment, speaking words of truth and finding grounding in the midst of chaos, gave me a foundation to build my character on. Entering the path of Yoga is not about learning the physical asanas: it’s about embodying the whole lifestyle from how you go through your days, interact with your surroundings,
what you eat, how you take care of your physical body and how you pursue your dreams.
I struggled with anxiety, chronic worrying and eating disorders since I was 8 years old. I tried every therapy form, medication, self-medication and chaotic effort I could find. Having almost given up hope, I found salvation in philosophy and spirituality. Little by little, through books and mentors, I started to work with my anxiety and little by little felt myself healing.
It's a wonderful thing, befriending yourself and your own mind. It changed everything.
I want to help you heal yourself too, and I know it's possible 'cause I have seen it happen, again and again. It's like magic but still just so logical.
Through many years of studying and exploring I have developed my own physical practice with elements from creative vinyasa flow, meditation and visualisation. The most important thing during my classes is not getting into deep or advanced postures, but instead getting into a deep flow of breathing and movement, combined and in synch. That’s how we enter effortless flow. Ease and steadiness. A balance between effort and letting go.
E a s e i n t o i t. There is no hurry. You'll get there in time.

Let the discovery guide and direct. Don't say no to your curiosity, it will lead you to wonderful places if you're just brave enough to follow it.
“The most creative act you will ever undertake
is the act of creating yourself.”
– Deepak Chopra
In my practice I draw extensively from my background as a professional dancer and musician, encouraging creative freedom to move as your body tells you to. I use both traditional eastern music & modern music with beats and flow. I aspire to teach, but mostly I am a lifelong student. I am healing myself and I’d like to guide others find their own ways to heal.
I want us all to encourage each other to bloom.
Bloom like the prettiest spectacle with nothing holding back!
I want to help you grow and heal: physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
I believe there’s really no limit to how excellent our lives can be.
“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything & and make your optimism come true.
Think only of the best, work only for the best.
Forget the mistakes of the past & press on the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to critize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side as long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

DIGITAL STRATEGY & MARKETING
FOR YOGA TEACHERS + YOGA RETREATS
Entering the world of teaching yoga I saw a lack of knowledge around marketing and strategy within the yoga community. I have since helped teachers and retreats define their strategies, teaching materials and help them find their audience through consulting and coaching.
