Meraki is a Greek word meaning ‘to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work.’
And that of doing ‘from the root of the heart’ is the highest truth and the essence of Rikke's practice and teachings. Yoga is the art of living, it is being the artist and the mystic and the soul whisperer and the space holder and the power generator and the light bearer. When we plug into this source we lift up everyone around us.
A former ballet dancer from Norway, Rikke Brodin moved to London at the age of 18 to pursue her passion for theatre and filmmaking. This journey led her from drama school to shamans in the jungle of Peru, to eventually exploring yoga, meditation and tantrik philosophy; a world where she found a strong creative stimulus whilst working a deeply transformational and spirit-igniting edge.
Rikke is a soul-stirrer and truth speaker with a deep commitment to awaken curiosity and sensitivity for engaging with every part of this profoundly mysterious bodymind matrix, and in this way fall in love with the whole spectrum of embodied aliveness.
Moving through many currents of existential depression and crisis as a teenager and young woman, Rikke has through her own personal experience become very skilled in helping her students to return home in their own body, to get anchored in the root of their heart and to amplify their creative field through breath, awareness, movement and subtle-body practices.
Her teachings are artful journeys into the student’s own interior; full of soul power and the high of opening channels and melting through barriers.
Rikke is continually deepening her studies with her master teachers Leila Sadeghee, Sianna Sherman, Tara Judelle, Śaiva Tantra scholar-practitioner Hareesh Wallis , Tantrik meditation teacher Sally Kempton, and teacher on meditation and awakening Adyashanti.
She has undertaken Sianna's 300hr Rasa Yoga advanced teacher training, Hareesh' Soul Immersion, and is currently undergoing Tara's 300hr Embodied Flow training, to name a few.
Rikke is also an energy healer under the Merlin lineage with VortexHealing®.
