Yoga Stories - Matilde Wergeland
When we met Matilde around a year ago, we were completely inspired and a little bit in awe! Journalist and travel writer for Vogue.com, Matilde can constantly be found in the most gorgeous locations, eating the most delicious food and indulging in beauty treatments.
What drew us to Matilde was her immaculate sense of style and like us - a love for Yoga.
"I believe that Yoga definitely is one of the toughest, but at the same time the most soothing things you can do for your body and mind"
Last year Matilde was in Srilanka at the most beautiful yoga studio where she was striving to perfect her postures. One posture that Matilde managed to learn during her time there was 'The Wheel'
"A teacher I met there told me I had the strength and ability, but needed to set my mind on it and believe that I could do it. I saw in my head how I managed to do the pose and then one day I did it! And I realised, isn't this key to pretty much anything you want to achieve in life? You often have more strength and ability than you think, you just need to change your mindset and really believe you can do it"
With so much traveling Matilde can often feel like her life is up in the air and that her thoughts are all over the place. Practicing Yoga helps to keep her grounded.
"Grounded like a tree, standing tall even in the most turbulent weather. Yoga helps me to control my mind and body better, to breathe and remain calm when everything round me seems stormy"
