Now a Yoga Alliance registered Hatha Yoga Instructor, Rua Hvitulv is a rather nerdy yogini who had been intermittently flirting with yoga for almost a decade, until fully dedicating herself to teaching it in 2014.
She is passionate about anatomy, kinesiology and safe alignment, about the science behind yoga. Her long-term goal is to rally a new generation of yoga practitioners who think of yoga critically, not superstitiously, who want to learn to work healthily and integrate balance and sustainability in their lives; to offer a resource for those who want to approach yoga but also for those who simply want to understand yoga without practicing it; to offer a space for those who have tried and failed to get into it many times before, to try once more.
Despite exposing herself to many styles along the years (Yin, Iyengar, Ashtanga Vinyasa, a.s.o) for Rua the one size fits all approach won’t do. “Adapting yoga to suit the needs of every unique individual is where the true greatness of yoga lies” as TKV Desikachar had put it, and it’s how her classes inevitably develop.
