Lars Samatvam Borgudd

Mandala Yoga Ashram British Wheel of Yoga (Yoga)

Mandala Yoga Ashram (Meditation)

The Ayurvedic Institute (Ayurveda Practitioner)

Lars started practicing yoga in 1986 while studying engineering at the University of Lund. In 2005, he completed his first yoga teacher training at k-yoga in Sweden. He then studied for two years at the Mandala Ashram in Wales, completing an advanced yoga and meditation teacher qualification under the guidance of Swami Nishchalananda. He aims to give people tools to manage their busy lives and appreciate having the opportunity to pass on to others what his teachers have passed on to him.

Emma Corbett

Emma grew up in Australia and has spent the last ten years travelling the world as an acrobat and trapeze artist. A few years ago, she was struggling with stress and anxiety, managing multiple businesses and her travel or performing career and she became drawn to mindfulness and Buddhist philosophy as an antidote from her endless busyness. She loves how this practice has brought a small window of peace into her life. She loves Yin yoga, meditation, and silence. But she also loves handstands and Power yoga. Life is made rich by contrasts.

    "Good structure and good classes with the feeling that it is very well thought out in order to get the maximum out of this time and progressively refine or develop our methods and our knowledge. I came to find rest and peace and to find real answers to myself about where my journey will lead. I found peace and happiness within myself. "

    "When I think of the past week I feel warm and happy inside. Rich, as if I had something very precious, which of course - I do have! You have shared your knowledge and experience, but perhaps the most important thing was your engagement. There was the feeling that you cared about everyone."

    "I felt that the retreat was beyond all expectations. I lacked nothing and thought it was a good balance in the program. I appreciated fire ceremony very much - it was the first time I was part of something like that. I appreciate that you are so well organized as it creates a sense of security. "

    "A very enriching retreat, led by knowledgeable and warmhearted yoga teachers! The participants were both young and old, men and women, with different backgrounds and perspectives, an interest in yoga was the common denominator. No matter how long we had been practicing yoga we all received a wonderful supply of energy and yoga insights."

    "Thanks again for the wonderful yoga long weekend. Suddenly I have the energy I felt like I was missing all autumn and it feels so good. It constantly surprises me, how quickly I notice the effects of yoga and that you can achieve so much in just a few days. Though of course it helps to go 'unplugged' for a few days, giving time for thought and self-reflection beyond the yoga/meditation class hours."

    "Thanks for the great days. I was more prepared for this retreat - I cut down on my caffeine intake prior! Because I had an understanding of how the retreat was going to work and what to expect it felt good. Familiar. I think you are both professional and present for the retreat, which gives me confidence in you as a leader. You make sure that everyone participate according to their individual ability. You are accustomed to organizing retreats and everything is carefully planned. Very tasty food! Loved the ginger / lemon shot!"

    "This was a holistic journey from the everyday throng. A chance to turn inward. A journey of a thousand impressions into stillness, to focus on the here and now and on my mind. A nice break from everyday life and a source of inspiration for everyday life. (With holistic, I mean that everything we did was imbued with yoga and mindfulness: asanas, meditation, kirtan, fellowship and food.) ... Thanks for the weekend and your commitment to our course attendance and thank you warmly to Britta for her exquisite cooking and cordial treatment of those of us who performed the kitchen tasks. Thanks also for the recipes!"
