“The week after the retreat, I noticed the following in my mind and heart:
– a kinder, more patient heart and compassion to others
– less distraction from social media in my free time and more focus on enriching activities (like reading)
– going straight into deep conversations with others and being vulnerable to sharing and listening
– feeling more empowered and strong to own my flaws and show my real self .
I wanted to thank you all for contributing in bringing me all of this.”
“Oren has a unique ability to bring a room full of strangers together to collectively venture into deep conversations. Through his masterful facilitation and insightful questions, Oren refocuses us on the discussions that really matter. He artfully creates an environment that not only provides a space for social entrepreneurs to reflect on and share our own experiences, he gently pushes us beyond that – equipping us with the skills and confidence to also actively listen to and coach each other.”
“It’s been a while since I have been that positively surprised by a yoga class! Anja guides a challenging and powerful flow, while educating and giving clues to improve the practice. All of that with a super calm and positive energy! Loved it!”

Oren will make you all connect to make sure true compassion, courage and creativity is simply magically unleashed.”

meet the team
Anja teaches vinyasa and yin yoga in Stockholm. Her passion for all aspects of yoga – physical, philosophical and psychological – is rooted in a deep longing to make sense of life and the human mind. She is a mother of boys, a lawyer trying to do good in the world, a passionate minimalist, and a dedicated student of yogic and existential philosophy. She also learned how to do a straddle-press handstand at the age of 38, and really enjoys sharing her love of inversions with others.
Oren is a certified coach focusing on personal wellbeing – a line of work that allows him to help others find purpose and balance. He is an experienced group facilitator who has helped entrepreneurs talk about self-doubt, forged coalitions of Afghan politicians, and led students on self-discovery trips in the Costa Rican jungle. His current pursuits include inventing kid-friendly vegan recipes and taking his handstand off-the-wall.
