Benedicte Alice Hertwig
Benedicte’s love for yoga began over 10 years ago, when she attended her first yoga class. She is a RYT 500Hr Yoga Teacher, Meditation Teacher, Holistic Life Coach & NLP Practitioner.
Originally from Norway, Benedicte moved to Dubai 4 years ago to finalize her masters in Business Psychology and then pursue her career in Dubai's corporate world. After completion of the master she soon found her way back to her true passion – yoga and the betterment of people’s lives. Benedicte did her yoga teacher trainings at Zuna Yoga®️ in Bali and is exclusively teaching.
Working as a full time yoga teacher in Dubai she passionately supports her yoga students on their path to awaken their souls purpose, to find self-acceptance and inner balance, let go of limitations, full fill dreams and experience their own magic! She inspires her students to live more consciously, freely and empowered, on and off the yoga mat.
The style of yoga she teaches can be defined as Tantric Hatha Vinyasa, in the context of the Sri Vidya tradition of India, one of the oldest schools of Tantra. The system includes the use of asana, bandha, mudra, pranayama, mantra, meditation and other components. Through a systematic usage of these tools, practice is directed toward the attainment of health, strength, perseverance, patience and wisdom that awakens us to the what we refer to as the true "promise of yoga": to live free and empowered, to experience the bountiful treasures of life, and the realization of purpose and success. In the Sri Vidya tradition, this is said to be the result of the development of the three shaktis: the power of will (iccha), the power of knowledge (jnana), and the power of action (kriya).
