Guest Teacher Program
The understanding that everything we experience in life is simply energies unfolding is an integral part of yoga philosophy. We find the same understanding in Chinese medicine, where the primary focus is to support these energies and redirect and rebalance them whenever we find ourselves physically or mentally out of sync.
During this week of both dynamic and slow yoga practices as well as short talks we’ll investigate how you can integrate the theories of Chinese medicine into your yoga practice to support your continuous well-being, not just during this week at stunning Samahita, but also when you return to everyday life.
Ann-Charlotte Monrad (E-RYT 500) has been teaching yoga since 1999. Inspired by her MA in South Asian Literatures and Cultures from SOAS as well as the teachings of Richard Freeman, with whom she has studied extensively, she has written three books (in Danish) on yoga, two of them on yoga philosophy.
Since 2015 she has also enjoyed the knowledge shared by Tiffany Cruikshank and Yoga Medicine and after completing more than 400 hours of study with this organization she became a Yoga Medicine® Registered Therapeutic Specialist in 2018. She’s also a Chinese medicine practitioner.
Ann-Charlotte runs Prana Yoga Shala in Copenhagen, where she sees private clients, teaches regular classes and runs the studio’s 200- and 300-hour trainings. She has previously hosted two retreats at Samahita, as well as retreats in Goa and Greece.
