TRY Yoga Unleashed (Norway)
Yoga popups in culture houses in Bergen and the surrounding area
My first yoga adventure born out of the need to make yoga more accessible to different audiences. Never one for cliques, i wandered around teaching all over the city of Bergen during the week, subsidising income with coffee shop graft and bar work. It took me to a lot of places. Then came the acting job which took me into different worlds of the city.
One thing came up time and time again- there were so many incredible spaces that were usually very empty and unused. And i wanted to change that.
I also wanted to bring different audiences together. So, i knew my goal was to get into the art museums as the art world tends to have similar issues to the yoga world. That came later.
So i knocked on doors. Many, many doors. Over and over. I got over the fear and hurt of being that “crazy english girl” who couldn´t give up. Some places agreed. I made the events by donation. People came.
Here are some of the spaces and projects I held events in:
- KODE - Art Museums of Bergen (Art + Yoga)
- BAS - Bergen School of Architecture
- Bergen Kunsthall
