Hi! I’m Ida Farneman; a certified yoga teacher, physiotherapy student and a yoga therapist. I’m a firm believer that yoga is for everybody and can help us feel more centered and connected to ourselves and the world around us. My experience is that through the daily practice of moving, breathing, sharing and reflecting together we can cultivate a deeper connection to ourselves and to the world around us. It is this understanding and exploration of how healing yoga can be that we will work with in our sessions together. Welcome as you are.
