Johanna Eliasson

Astanga LedVinyasaYin

Johanna was born on a cloudy and cold May day in the year of the Ox in Örebro, Sweden. Already in early teenage years, she was interested in Eastern philosophies, continuously searching for the answers to questions that could not be answered by Google. It was in 2006 when she took her first yoga class that things started to fall into place. The body felt like jello, the heart was light as a feather and the mind was still.

She arrived in the Hague in 2013 and found herself situated in a city filled with yoga studios, and from there it was easy to create a life around the asana practice. In 2016 the calling to dig deeper was answered when she finally signed up for a teacher training. During the years she has attained teacher certificates in Vinyasa, Yin, Hatha and Ashtanga. Equipped with the tools needed to transfer the unique feeling and sense of wonder that a yoga asana practice can offer.

She is looking to create a certain softness and connection to the Self in her classes, even in the more vigorous practices such as Vinyasa Flow, it is possible to find a state of harmony and joy. Johanna likes to work with integrating the breath (pranayama) to the movement (asana) and the different gazing points (drishti).

Her own practice lies mostly in the Ashtanga Vinyasa style, and she has worked with inspiring teachers such as Govinda Kai, Claudia Pradella, and Kino McGregor. After more challenging asana practice, she finds that the mind has come to stillness and feels a connection that is so heart opening that it keeps calling her back day after day. She hopes to spread this stillness on to the people that come across in her classes.
