Anne Devismes, PhD, E-RYT500, YACEP

Owner and director of Terra Yoga

Training

  • 200 hr with Laurel Hodory, 2010, Columbus, USA (vinyasa and ashtanga)
  • 300 hr with Noah Mazé, 2017, Berlin, Germany (hatha and vinyasa)

Why do I practice?

Simply said, the practice (whether it’s asana, pranayama, or meditation) makes me feel better, happier, and more grounded. It empowers me to believe in and trust myself and to live my life more meaningfully.

Why do I teach?

I believe that playing and being challenged on the mat teaches us many of the skills we need to face challenges off the mat and to live a happy, conscious, and fulfilling life. It is an amazing privilege to guide my students, to help them find the tools they need to explore their human nature, and to witness their transformations and breakthroughs.

Energy and intention of my classes

playful and educational

My life’s motto

If I don’t like the results, I can change my choices.

What am I grateful for?

I am grateful for the ever-present possibility to try again and learn more.

What does connection mean to me?

Everything I think, say, and do affects not only myself but everyone and everything around me. Knowing that I am connected with the world inspires me to be kinder and more thoughtful about what I choose to feel and to express.

Other activities

I have a PhD in nuclear physics. I freelance as a science editor and hold a position in the editorial office of the Journal of Industrial Ecology (Yale / NTNU). In between enjoying nature (in water if at all possible) and writing my first book, I am dreaming of creating an animal sanctuary.

Energy and intention of my classes

fun and challenging

My life’s motto

"Stop acting so small. You are the Universe in ecstatic motion!" Rumi

What am I grateful for?

My breath. And dogs!

What does connection mean to me?

I could write a book about this word! But simply put, to me, connection is community. And community is home. It's a place, both physical and within, where I can come as I am and know that there is nothing but support, kindness, and warmth.

I work with PR and strategic communications for an organization in Trondheim. I’m also part of the teaching staff at Atman Yoga School. I’m an avid reader, tea drinker, and writer.


Jessica Dittmar Walvåg 

    Why do I practice?

    Pilates, and yoga too for that matter, keeps me grounded. It tunes me in to my intentions and priorities, while helping to drown out the noise of a busy life. Pilates is my self-care routine. 

    Why do I teach?

    Easy. Pilates makes my body and my mind more resilient and balanced, and I can’t help but want to share that with others. I love to see others grow, master new skills, and take safe risks under my guidance. 

    Energy and intention of my classes

    playful and balanced

    My life’s motto

    You don't grow when you're comfortable.

    What am I grateful for?

    New paths.

    What does connection mean to me?

    It’s why we are here on this planet. Without our connections to our inner selves or each other, life wouldn’t be as rich and meaningful. Through our connections, we can be our best selves and help others do the same.

    Other activities

    I work as a middle-school teacher. I'm a lover of thick books, chubby babies, and hairy dogs.

    Yoga has given me so much. I want to give people the opportunity to experience this amazing world as well.

    Energy and intention of my classes

    creative and fun


    What am I grateful for?

    My family.

    What does connection mean to me?

    Connection to me is the sharing of the breath and energy when practicing yoga with my fellow yogis. Being present like that makes me feel the most connected, to myself, to the Source, and to others.

    Other activities

    Hiking/spending time in nature, spending time with my family, reading, handball, and HIIT.

    Vanessa Triujeque, RYT200

    Training

    200 hr, 2015, India (hatha)

    Why do I practice?

    The study and practice of Yoga is gradually bringing peace and clarity to my life. Asana practice allows me to take care of my body at the same time as I take time to slow down and to be with my breath.

    Why do I teach?

    I believe in a chain reaction. When we learn to connect with our inner self, when we live a life of clarity, we move towards a space of peace and love that allows us to play our part in the world more skillfully and meaningfully.

    Energy and intention of my classes

    encouraging toward self-exploration and self-acceptance

    My life’s motto:

    "Just keep swimming." Dory The Fish

    What am I grateful for?

    My own yoga teacher, Prasad Rangnekar. 

    What does connection mean to me?

    Connection starts inwards. It is a process that requires patience and resilience.

    Other activities

    I am a middle-school teacher. I enjoy most being out in nature with my kids, hiking, running, skiing, or swimming depending on the season.
