For a fit balanced body and mind.”
I am originally Danish and educated within Jazz and Contemporary dance. As much as I love to dance, I never felt completely comfortable in the environment around dance. I always searched to create a space for myself where I felt that I could grow, dance and be myself without being scared of judgement from the industry or other people. I later on learned I was not alone in this feeling, not only in the dance studio but in all aspects of life. I decided to create a space for (mainly) women, where they could feel safe to enjoy movement, this could be dance, pole or fitness, without having to feel self conscious about the way they looked or moved. Working closely with these women I found out that both them and myself were often lost in a world filled with standards we feel we need to live up too. And most of the time we get lost in this and end up stressed from not getting everything done, not feeling like we are the best version of ourselves or not knowing where to start in the search to be the healthiest we can be. I decided to create my Creating Healthy Habits Programs. Designed to help guide people through how to create long lasting habits without it feeling like a million big tasks they need to incorporate into an already full calendar. Creating habits should be fun and enjoyable. And if you get the right tools I believe that everyone can create new habits that can fit your life and support your health long term.
