ABOUT IMKEN DONDE

Always inspired by what students bring, Imken works spontaneously and intuitively and loves to teach with a gentle, heart opening approach.

Classes are playful and creative, yet inspire to feel comfortable and relaxed, to go deeper, let go of physical and mental tension, and come out revitalized with a sense of inner peace, calm and joy.

 

Imken is passionate about sharing tools on releasing lower back pain, finding more freedom in body-mind-soul, and greater awareness to sense. She often uses elements of massage work, tai chi and free movement and loves to co-create  yoga & sound experiences with live musicians and sound healers.

Trained in Sama Yoga (Hatha Yoga based), Restorative, Yin and Somatic Yoga (neuromuscular re-patterning) and Craniosacral Therapy, Imken practices yoga since 2003 and teaches since 2013, sourcing inspiration from 8 years travel in India, Sweden and the UK.

 Alongside classes, workshops and retreats, Imken works one to one with clients on specific needs, offering Holistic yoga programs and hands-on bodywork (Craniosacral Therapy, Chi Nei Tsang Abdominal Massage, Shamanic burping)
