About A Chat with Omkar108 Yoga
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Owner and lead teacher Jörgen Christiansson has 30 years of teaching experience and spent 21 years studying with his teacher K. Pattabhi Jois in India. He is one of few KPJAYI Certified teachers in the world and the authenticity of the yoga lineage and tradition comes through in the practice. All the teachers at Omkar108 Yoga are rooted in the tradition and students of Jörgen, making them highly experienced and qualified.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Students will be motivated when they experience for themselves how the body is opening up, becoming more flexible and stronger. They will feel better, more confident, have peace of mind, and inspired to continue. With regular practice, they will realize their body can safely do what they thought was not possible. As they gain further confidence and stay with the yoga practice, they will become stronger, more flexible, calm and relaxed.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
With 30 years of teaching experience, KPJAYI Certified Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Jörgen Christiansson, founder and owner, wanted to open a sacred and safe place where people could learn this method in a traditional and correct way. Omkar108 Yoga is more than a yoga studio but a place of community, a home for students from all walks of life, a space void of competition that encourages everyone to practice and grow.
What do you love most about your job?
The practice is what we love most. Once you start practicing yoga regularly and feel the difference, this turns to love. This love is what keeps us going. At Omkar108 Yoga, the students are family, not just a number or face-less individuals. They are loyal and motivated to practice and evolve, and they motivate and inspire one another. You will find students from all walks of life and ages varying from 21-77 practicing side-by-side. Some are beginners to yoga, while others have been practicing for 20 years. A competitive-free environment, we support and encourage our students in their path towards health, well-being and happiness. With this mind-set, we love inspiring, motivating and guiding students in their yoga journey. This is what drives us.
