Sky Akasha

In search for balance, healing and answers to life’s purpose and meaning, Sky came to his first yoga class 25 years ago, and immediately felt at home and inspired to learn more.

His journey has led him to study several forms of yoga, including Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Kundalini and the Chinese forms, Tai Chi and Qi Gong.

Over the years Sky has been educated in Ayurveda, studying 1 year with the master Dr. Vasant Lad, enriching his understanding of health and clear choices that support a balanced way of living. In 2001 he met his Guru, Swami Vagishananda, definitely the most  important and influential meeting of his life.  Finally there were clear answers to the purpose of life and what all the efforts and practices were for!  Blessed to be in close connection with his Guru, he continues to receive deep studies in Vedanta, sanskrit, mantras, Puja and all the yoga philosophy and values of the yogic tradition. This has given him a good grounding in the purpose and practices of Yoga as a way of achieving balance, harmony and total fulfillment in this life.

For the past 15 years Sky has been teaching yoga full time and in 2007 established the Sama Yoga school, which leads Yoga Teacher Trainings and retreats in Sweden, Bali, Scotland and Greece.

Skys classes are always spontaneous and deeply honoring of his students.  As he says, “I’m like the milkman, I just deliver the milk, fulfilling the sacred and even unspoken orders of the students.” Taught with relaxed passion, humor and clear understanding of the poses and their benefits, the Samayoga form is intuitive and taught from the heart.  It’s a very interesting, creative and fun form to practice. It looks like a Hatha Yoga flow, but spiced with Qi Gong and special mantras to open the heart.
