A little about me .....
My name is Helen Forsman (Isbister) and I was born and brought up in Harray, Orkney. I have lived the past 30 years in Linköping, Sweden working as a teacher full time. I worked at a Folk High School ( Marieborg Folkhögskolan) for adults where I created and taught interdisciplinary projects as well as teaching English as a Second Language, creative classes and Yoga & Meditation. But in August 2017 I moved back to Orkney for a while to do that what I love the most, Yoga & Art. And the adventure continues...
My Yoga..... I have practiced yoga on a daily basis for the past 12 years and in particular Kundalini Yoga (KY). I have experienced KY to be very beneficial in my life, both physically and mentally, creating a greater awareness and holistic approach to life, becoming more mindful. 8 years ago I trained to be an International Kundalini yoga and Meditation Instructor (KRI) as well as a Medicine Yoga Instructor and I was very grateful to be able to practice this in my work. I also work at Yogakraft (www.yogakraft.se) a Kundalini yoga centre in Linköping as an instructor and as an assistant in the international instructors training courses. I have continued in more advanced training within Kundalini Yoga. I am also a certified teacher in Yoga Nidra. Kundalini Yoga as well as Yoga Nidra have frequency sound vibrations, such as the Gong and the Tibetan singing bowls, in their practice. The study of sound I have pursued more by doing various trainings and studying the practitioners diploma in Integral Sound Healing specializing in a range of instruments such as the tuning forks, Tibetan bowls, voice, frame drum and gong.
My art .....for me, my art is an inner journey that weaves the threads of my ethereal world with the places, people and experiences in life. These threads create a canvas where the motives emerge. The deep forests of Sweden and the mystical islands of Orkney, are also fundamental sources of inspiration. I was co-founder of an art association in Linköping Sweden, Ateljétorggatan 6 where I paint and exhibit as much as I can. I am also a Vedic Art teacher(www.vedicart.com) which I enjoy teaching and its structure helps navigate the vast oceans of life.
In June 2020, I moved back to Sweden where I continue on my journey with yoga, meditation, sound healing and art.
I am currently running Yogakraft in Linköping as well as online.
