We are in Nørrebro, ten minutes from Copenhagen city center. Visit us for a drop in and learn an authentic yoga practice at your own pace with KPJAYI authorized teachers Mikko Seppinen and Helena Melkjorsen.
Helena began her study of body and movement early in life as a dancer. In 2000 she started her yoga journey in Copenhagen, Helsinki and New York City. Ever since her introduction to yoga in three countries and two continents, the practice became an essential part of her life, and after returning visits to Mysore, India, Helena has received the teaching authorization by R. Sharath Jois at KPJAYI. She has also studied in-depth with Chuck Miller, Maty Ezraty and Richard Freeman. Her teaching reflects all these influences. Coming from a background of professional dance and self-expression, Helena is passionate to highlight healthy alignment together with an intuitive understanding of movement. Her natural curiosity and deep interest in the human body and mind, as well as body-mind connection gives her an exact and therapeutic teaching style.
