Lisa Akesson is a beautiful, talented and conscious individual. A trained Raja yoga professional, Ayurvedic Health advisor, massage therapist and chef, she is an adventurer in spirit as in life. Her website, AreYouVedic, is filled with free practical tips we could all do with in our daily lives. To reap more detailed and personal benefits of her expertise, however, Lisa offers consultations, yoga classes, Ayurvedic treatments and cooking workshops. Her aim? To give her students a chance to discover a new version of themselves, with the help of pranayama, meditation and asana – all with the measured guidance of her lilting voice and kind eye.

Yoga to me, is a practice that moves me into a natural state of stillness, self-awareness and balance.

We already know, we’ve just forgotten.

–  Lisa Akesson

Many understand yoga to be the practice of trying to attain stillness and peace. In our busy day-to-day lives, it’s not difficult to see why that might be necessary! However, there’s a lot out there. So much, in fact, that it can be hard to decipher the kindly imitators from the real deal. And this is what SMUK is all about; we do the searching so you don’t have to. Lisa may be an expert with years of experience, but her humble attitude and patient manner make her teaching suitable to those who want experience yoga at any level. Like us, Lisa aims to inspire you all to pursue a balanced lifestyle – even within the confines of quotidian life.

We thereby introduce you to our yogi girl crush: Lisa Akesson. You can read for yourself the praise Lisa has received on her website. Here on SMUK, see her in her element, captured by the talented Isabell N Wedin whose work has appeared in Jute Magazine among others. She and Lisa worked together to create this inspiring editorial, which we adore.

Just think: if you could ask Lisa anything Yoga and Ayurveda related, what would it be?
