Yoga teacher extraordinaire, nature lover and all round bringer of calm, Ulla works from her beautiful Yoga Flow Studios in Svendborg and Copenhagen.
Q: How do you start your day?
A: I am an early bird. The first thing I do before anything else is put a frozen block of ice into my sink and fill it up with water or Green tea. I dunk my head in and feel the blood vessels in my face come alive and it brings freshness to the rest of the day. And then I head off to my beautiful holistic Silk Yoga Mat to do my daily Yoga program.
Q: What gets you going? (exercise/ wellbeing routine)
A: I’m a Yoga Teacher, so no doubt, Yoga keeps me going and gives me energy to perform and keep up with each task on my daily to-do list.
Q: Where you are most inspired?
A: Spending time with people with wit and intelligence, travelling and good books. Often these three things go hand in hand.
Q: You are a successful business woman now, but what advice would you give your younger self?
A: Don’t listen to what others want you to do. Listen to people who encourage you to do what YOU feel is right.
Q: What cause are you currently championing?
A: My ‘Flow Yoga’ teacher training.
Q: How do you relax and switch off?
A: Yoga and Walking Meditations.
Q: What’s your guilty pleasure?
A: Oh…Coffee with whipped cream
Q: You have to choose only one beauty product to use for the next 7 days, what would you pick?
Fresh air and a wonderful Greenlandic body cream from Inuacare. Juniper & Labrador Tea Extra Care Cream
Q: Do you sleep well, what is your bedtime routine?
A: My bedtime routine is getting into bed before midnight, although I try to aim for 10.30 pm. I couldn’t live without my silk eye mask. I travel a lot so I bring it everywhere and always try to stick to getting to bed around the same time.
Q: And the final question… your favourite Holistic Silk item and why
A: My favourite Holistic Silk item is definitely the Eye Mask. I have more than one! They help me get a good night’s sleep, even during the light Scandinavian summer nights. And then of course my Holistic Silk Yoga Rug mat. So soft, warm and beautifully scented.
