This is a story about everything I love…
I truly believe that magic is something you make. To me magic is to dream, to wander, explore and love without limits. It is to lose myself in the wonders of the world and be forever curious. It is to walk the path less beaten, connecting to the Divine, trusting my process, following my heart, and one step at a time finding the courage to live my passion.
I have created Magic Is Something You Make for you to easily create your own magic living. Here I have collected all the everyday tools that help me connect with the Divine, stay on my path, and live what I believe to be a magic life.
Feel free to pick and mix what works for you ♥
WHO AM I?
I am an entrepreneurial yogini with a big passion for traveling! After seven years of business studies and a short career in the corporate world, I decided to let others run the businesses and spend my time finding more fun, joy and contentment through yoga, surfing, spirituality and wanderlust instead, slowly learning to embracing this extravagant life with all it has to offer.

When I’m not out and about exploring the world, I am co-founder and full time yoga instructor at my studio, Leela Yoga, in Oslo, Norway. I teach vinyasa yoga, yin yoga, Yogastrology®, yoga nidra and meditation, with a strong focus on wholehearted living and spiritual and emotional healing. I also teach two yearlong online programs: An Inner Quest to Your Soul, which focuses on the earth based religions, shamanism and energy healing of your mind, body and soul, and Yogastrology®, which combines the ancient sister practices, yoga + astrology, with the divinity that is your body.
In addition to being a teacher, I am a certified Reiki practitioner, a self proclaimed Astrology junkie, and a lover of the earth based religions. Last but not least, I am a mesa carrier, and initiated shaman in the lineage of the Pampamesayok – the Andean earth keepers of Peru – and educated in shamanic energy medicine from the Four Winds; the world’s most renown school of shamanic energy medicine.
My morning routine: I really enjoy slow mornings, and I try to make my schedule so that I will always have a time for my spiritual practice. I will usually get up around 06.00 or 07.00 and do a 30 – 6o minutes yoga + meditation practice, followed by asking the universe what I need to know today and pulling my daily tarot card for answers. Then I’ll prepare a light breakfast and journal while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee.
The world needs more: Passionate and playful people. Dare to get out of your comfort zone – that’s where the magic happens!
I believe in: Life as a teacher, trusting my process, and always following my heart and intuition in everything I do.
Love is: Forgiving, accepting, unconditional and strong.
I can’t get enough of: Yoga, teaching, all kind of juices and smoothies, yoga mats in beautiful colors, pretty dresses, bookstores, music, singing, art, design, my fantastic and beautiful friends + family, hot coffee, traveling, wandering, being barefoot and grounded, swimming, kitesurfing, early summer mornings, the feeling of sand between my toes, sun in my face, and the gentle touch of salty water when you swim ♥
Yoga is for me: Peace and happiness and my go to place when I’m feeling stressed.
This year I want to: Inspire everyone to trust their heart and follow their dreams. Life’s too short not to live your passion!
