Tell us about yourself, who are you?
24 years on earth. I grew up in the Swedish countryside with horses, dogs and cats. Always dreamed of discovering the world and living in warmer latitudes. Which I'm doing right now!
How did you find Salt & Sand?
While living in Costa Rica, I photographed my beautiful friend @stinaceasar on Instagram that carried Salt & Sand.
How come you chose to travel to Sri Lanka?
Because I have never been here before and friends recommended it! It is not a holiday but I study at a distance, work as a yoga teacher and build on my dream of a more flexible lifestyle!
How long have you been practicing yoga?
I took the first class when I was 15 years old, at a gym in Mjölby. Then I studied to be a yoga teacher in Bali when I was 20 years old.
What tips do you have for other girls who want to travel and develop in yoga?
- Try several different styles / teachers to find what appeals to you most during the trip.
- Yoga teacher training, even if you do not want to become a teacher, it is a great opportunity to develop.
- The more you return the more development!
- Buy a travel rug. On the go, there are many places for your own practice or the opportunity to follow Youtube videos!

All Cafes, beaches and appreciating the proximity to nature. I have only been to southern Sri Lanka along the coast.
