Laruga Glaser is an advanced level practitioner and student of yoga as well as a Level 2 Certified Teacher, bringing with her a combined total over 25 years experience instructing body movement. Laruga’s yoga journey started in 1998 and since then, she has continued to draw inspiration from her daily visit to the mat, along with long term studies of Ashtanga Yoga at KPJAYI in Mysore, India practicing under the guidance of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and who she considers her principle teacher, his grandson R. Sharath Jois. Laruga has made 11 trips to KPJAYI and began her studies there after already 10 years of sustained practice.
Through it all, Laruga teaches as an act of deep sharing and love for what yoga develops in each individual, facilitating space to open, challenge, and inspire those to realise their inherent potential. Laruga gained her Certification to Ashtanga Yoga in Feb 2019 and needless to say that there are only 200 to 300 certified teachers around the world, which makes her pretty much a star!
David Fredriksson took his first Ashtanga Yoga class in 2006 and from that point on, he has not stopped. When he embarked on his first trip to Mysore, India, in February 2008, practicing with the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois, he delved even deeper into the practice, and fully committed himself to the method. In January 2011 he had the honor of receiving his Level 1 Authorization to teach from his teacher, R. Sharath Jois.
In Sweden, David teaches and assists alongside his teacher, Laruga Glaser. When Laruga travels around the world to teach workshops and retreats, David is the one that runs and oversees her Mysore program at Yogayama Östermalm, in Stockholm. For him it’s a great honor to help hold a space for students from all walks of life were they can explore who they are and grow as human beings with the help of this dynamic practice.

With many signs pointing her in the direction of yoga, she took up the practice and began to gain the experience she was missing from study alone.

Jaimee Ratliff is an Atlanta-based certified yoga teacher and passionate advocate for living a life she loves.
While Jaimee wholeheartedly believes yoga is accessible to everyone, the desire to share her practice as a teacher stems from a sensitive reality that the yoga community strongly lacks diversity, both on a local and global scale.

That said, Jaimee is on a mission to invite people of all shapes, sizes, colors, nationalities, and socioeconomic statuses across the world to consider incorporating yoga into their fitness/ self-care regimen, and to feel empowered by knowing, yes! yoga is for each and every one of us.
Off the mat, she can be found exploring the world, and working earnestly to integrate the same peace, contentment, balance and self love she experiences on the mat, out in everyday life.
