Hi! I'm Elina. I live in Washington DC but I'm originally from Sweden, the very old and cold country on the Arctic circle (not the one famous for cheese and chocolate, although we have that too). After finishing my Masters Degree in Business & Economics there in 2010, I came to the US as a marketing intern. I then became completely immersed in corporate America and have held a couple of high level roles at Fortune 500 companies. ​ Now I'm also a lifestyle blogger with a focus on health, fitness and beauty, and I share a lot about sustainable health habits and low impact exercises you can do from anywhere. I am super passionate about everything health and fitness, and I'm also slightly obsessed with how to grow my hair even longer and taking care of my skin.

When I'm not working out or run around with my hair drenched in coconut oil, I love spending quality time with my husband and our little (big) baby, Achilles! He is a 102 lbs Doberman and a total goofball. I also love spending time with my girlfriends and traveling the world. I'm a quite positive person, as I believe life is better when you enjoy it! ​

Happy weekend my loves! Bringing you two Pigeon modifications today as it’s a yummy hip opener but can sometimes be too intense if you have really tight hips or knee issues: one modification is to use a block under your hip and the other is a Reclined Pigeon! Day 6 of #AloveOfAsanas and its Pigeon pose! 💖🐦 ———— ❣️ Hosts: @elinafromsweden @evasofia__ @heidyoga @katcynewski @nathalieshanti @transylvandaddy ❣️ Sponsors: @aloyoga @alomoves 💖Pose lineup: 1: Standing split or forward fold ✔️ 2: Horse pose or any eagle ✔️ 3: Frog pose II or locust ✔️ 4: Headstand pose ✔️ 5: Eight-angle pose or any arm balance ✔️ 6: Leg behind head pose or pigeon ✔️ 7: Firefly pose or compass 8: Inverted staff pose or bridge 9: Revolved or extended side angle pose . . . . . #accessibleyoga #iyengaryoga #ytt200 #yogateachertraining #ashtangayogalove #yogachallenge #aloyogachallenge #armbalance #pigeonpose #beginneryogaposes #pigeonmodification#kapotasana #allpinkeverything #ankylosingspondylitis #leggingsarelife #yogapants #yogamodifications #spinalhealth #gentleyoga #swedishyogi #svenskayogis #reclinedpigeon #lowimpactworkout #lowimpactmovement #barre #barregirls #barreathome #barreblend

Happy Fri-yay loves! Any fun plans this weekend? 🤩⠀ ⠀ ⠀ This morning I finally did weight lifting and yoga again after taking the week off due to my wrist being irritated. However, an arm balance felt a bit too intense so here is a crow from last month! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Day 5 of #AloveOfAsanas and it’s any arm balance! 💖 Crow is by far my favorite, it’s not perfect but always a fun add-on to my practice! ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ————⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The yoga pose itself is not the goal nor just becoming flexible. Whats the goal of our yoga practice? The goal is to create space where you were once stuck 💫 To unveil the layers of safety and harmony built around your heart. Come to your yoga mat to feel, not to accomplish! 💕⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ❣️ Hosts:⠀ @elinafromsweden⠀ @evasofia__⠀ @heidyoga⠀ @katcynewski⠀ @nathalieshanti⠀ @transylvandaddy⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ❣️ Sponsors:⠀ @aloyoga⠀ @alomoves⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 💖Pose lineup:⠀ 1: Standing split or forward fold ✔️⠀ 2: Horse pose or any eagle ✔️⠀ 3: Frog pose II or locust ✔️⠀ 4: Headstand pose ✔️⠀ 5: Eight-angle pose or any arm balance ✔️⠀ 6: Leg behind head pose or pigeon⠀ 7: Firefly pose or compass⠀ 8: Inverted staff pose or bridge⠀ 9: Revolved or extended side angle pose⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogabalance #iyengaryoga #ytt200 #yogateachertraining #ashtangayogalove #yogachallenge #aloyogachallenge #armbalance #crowpose #takeflight #aloveofasana #barregirls #barreblendworkout #barretribe #pilatestribe #barreathome⠀ #ankylosingspondylitis #spinehealth #spinemobility #spinalhealth #gentleyoga #swedishyogi #svenskayogis #dcinfluencers #barrebloggers⠀ ⠀

If you follow my stories you know that I got some good news about my back today from my MRI on Monday! It has only gotten a tiny bit worse from seven years ago 🙌🏻😃 I was afraid I didn’t have any discs left and that I’d need steel rods, or that my spine had started fusing. But I only have two smaller disc herniations, and a bunch of arthritis in my spine and SI joints! That might sound bad but it’s a huge win for me, as it’s basically the same as 7 years ago! 🙌🏻🥰⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Sooo speaking of disc herniations - I’m very excited for today’s pose which is locust! My disc herniations are posterior, meaning they herniate at the back of my spine. This makes forward bending very difficult for me as it can pop them out even more, but back bending usually feels great! Back bending can even help heal these kinds of disc herniations sometimes. Locust pose is great for your spine and it also helps strengthen your entire posterior chain. So its one of my favorite poses 😍⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Whats your favorite yoga pose?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ————————⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Day 3 of our yoga challenge #AloveOfAsanas  💖 and today is Frog II 🐸 or Locust 🦗 ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ❣️ Hosts:⠀ @elinafromsweden⠀ @evasofia__⠀ @heidyoga⠀ @katcynewski⠀ @nathalieshanti⠀ @transylvandaddy⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ❣️ Sponsors:⠀ @aloyoga⠀ @alomoves⠀ ⠀ ⠀ 💖Pose lineup:⠀ 1: Standing split or forward fold ✔️⠀ 2: Horse pose or any eagle ✔️⠀ 3: Frog pose II or locust ✔️⠀ 4: Headstand pose⠀ 5: Eight-angle pose or any arm balance⠀ 6: Leg behind head pose or pigeon⠀ 7: Firefly pose or compass⠀ 8: Inverted staff pose or bridge⠀ 9: Revolved or extended side angle pose⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #yogibeginner #yogalife #feedyoursoul #aloveofasana #healtheworld #spreadkindness #aloyogachallenge #yogini #choosehappiness #beagoddess #bossbabe #wellness #trainyourmind #ankylosingspondylitis #yogalovers #discherniation #discissues #kindnessmatters #yogaforbackpain #hippievibes #hippiechick #sijointdysfunction #yogatribe #backbends #locustpose #yogatribe #yogafam #dcblogger #dcinfluencer⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Day 1 of #AloveOfAsanas  and it’s forward fold 💖 This is a great posture but if you have disc herniations it can be damaging to go too deep, especially if your hips and hamstrings are tight, so I’m showing two yummy modifications here to make it accessible for anyone! You can also do it seated on the chair and bend forward over your legs 🧘🏼‍♀️⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The yoga pose itself is not the goal nor just becoming flexible. Whats the goal of our yoga practice? The goal is to create space where you were once stuck 💫 To unveil the layers of safety and harmony built around your heart.
