The core redefined
– a workshop with Olivia Berggren –
This workshop will explore how to find and maintain inner support as well as freeing movement from the bottom up. You will learn how to unlock the breath, pelvis and spine. Whether you´re a dedicated yogi or an office hero, will you learn tools to be integrated in practice and life. Considering the core as a stabilizer of the spine, we have more than a few muscle groups that do the job, -if we allow them to. Shallow breathing, tight pants and a sedentary lifestyle prevent the core from support us in life. Back pain and increased stress levels are just a few symptoms that can follow.
Movement, breath and body awareness can help us to gain resilience and strength over time. Pelvis and upper back position are essential for optimal core stability and a happy spine, as well as allowing for softness. We will move to find the sweet spots where we have the support and the space for a body-mind connection that helps us through challenges in life.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get a deeper understanding of those fundamental yet easily overlooked relations that will increase not only your strength but also overall health and life quality!
Main take away will be:
-How your breath is connected to your lower back.
-How hip mobility can unburden your spine.
-Biomechanics on spine and pelvis.
-Applied anatomy of the “inner unit”.
And much more!
Have you ever heard that you should “draw your navel in” to support your back? What if we allowed the breath doing it´s thing, so that the support we asked for came from all directions? We will explore the breath/core relationship and it´s impact on the spine and pelvis. Ideas around strength and release will be integrated both in practice and theory.
It´s all related
The mobility available in the pelvis/hips as well as the upper back has an impact on our spine and vice-versa. The afternoon will be about upper and lower body mobility and how we can integrate it in life and practice.
The workshop will be taught in English or Danish, on request.

Olivia has taught and practiced yoga for over a decade. Her passion is to guide her students to find strength, confidence and ease in their body and life. Having gone through both the honeymoon and the downs of the yoga practice, she is always in the exploration of how to make the practice be in the service of what we actually need it to be in life.
With her knowledge about anatomy, physiology and biomechanics, she aims to up level how we practice and teach yoga and movement. She teaches local classes in Sweden where she lives, as well as international workshops.
She is studying to become a Physiotherapist with agenda to integrate a more holistic view at the human body and health than is offered in conventional consultations as it is now.
“The body knows it all”, is her motto as everything we do and think eventually will show up in the physics. To move is her way to get to know herself better and she intend to inspire others to do so as well.
