Mrs. Ilse K. Gaardahl
Ilse Gaardahl teaches yoga in Denmark since more than 20 years. As a 13 year old, Ilse was diagnosed with two serious back diseases: Scoliosis and Scheuermann’s Disease. With yoga practice, and in particular the practice of Iyengar Yoga, Ilse leads an independent and fully active life.
Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, it is a form of Hatha Yoga that has an emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of posture (asana) and breath control (pranayama). The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through the asanas.
One of the first in Denmark certified Iyengar yoga teacher in 1996, Ilse has since pursued her formation in Yoga Therapy applied to scoliosis. Info: www.city-yoga.dk. In 1992, she completed an education in Body / Gestalt Therapy and in 2000, in Couple & Group Therapy, both at the Institute for Gestalt Analysis. In her Skanderborg Center, she offers Stress & Crisis Therapy, Couples Therapy, Anxiety Management and other forms of therapies for personal issues. See more at www.stressbuster.dk
In December 2011, she published a book titled “Yoga Manual”, a guide to self practice. She also produced two short videos on breathing exercises and deep relaxation which are available for free on her website website www.city-yoga.dk and on www.yogamanual.dk . Every year, she guides Yoga and Holiday Trip to Goa - see. www.goforgoa.dk
The summer in Denmark is short and we love to stay outside as much as possible, so naturally we like hammocks.
I thought I knew what a hammock was until I tried the hammock CLOUD135 … I just fell in love! To sit and hang out in this hammock is wonderfully comfortable. Even with my very bad back, I can hang in for hours! More than a hammock, the CLOUD135 is actually a beautiful piece of ergonomic hanging furniture and I use it as much in winter in my house as I do outside in summer.
If it is good for me, it is certainly good for my yoga students and Stressbuster clients as well. So i just had to take some of this hammock to my Yoga Studio for them! Everybody with back problems can enjoy this very innovative design of hammocks and relax.
