Babette teaches Yoga weekly at Ila Prison, Oslo, Norway. To Babette these teachings brings Yoga full circle. Most prisoners suffers complex traumatic experiences early on in life and these traumas affect what they do, and often land them in prison. For Babette Yoga becomes a tool for reinstating the prisoners with their bodies to restore the connection between mind, heart and body. By putting them back in touch with their bodies, they begin to care more about themselves and yoga being a tool for rehabilitation and happiness.
Many teachers have inspired Babette’s Yoga lifestyle. Pernille Bønkan was Babette’s first instructor and still is. Puro Yoga in Oslo is Babette’s second home and over the years Alexander Medin, Astrid Holte Østbye, Astrid Riddervold and Kajsa Finnstrom has played a key role in developing Babette’s Yoga life and practice. At Puro Yoga, Babette completed her Teacher Training Foundation course with Alexander Medin.
