Peter Kaaberbøl Kristensen is the founder of LagoCph yoga school in Copenhagen, Denmark, and X-Pand Me body stretching system. He is a master practitioner of yoga, meditation, martial arts, and bodywork and for the past 12 years has devoted his life to educating yoga teachers around the world. Peter has a gift for breaking down complex yogic principles into simple guidance that helps the trainee investigate the body’s subtle energies. By bringing trainees’ awareness to their inner worlds, Peter helps them deepen their practice from the inside out.
His intensive month-long teacher training programs deepen the trainees’ personal practice and guide their teaching techniques to a place where they can freely impart the body’s inner wisdom to their own students.
The training programs provide a safe environment for structured asana sequences, and even more importantly, for personal growth through mental and spiritual exercises. The programs facilitate transformation at all levels, helping trainees to be their best selves and, in turn, the best teachers they can be. Peter stays true to classical yoga in all its forms and blends those forms with the beauty and freedom of the modern Vinyasa flow. His classes are physically challenging, but rooted in alignment and the subtle energetic lines of the body. Peter brings his yoga practice into all areas of his life, and helps his trainees do the same by guiding them to the subtle wisdom within their own bodies.
Peter began practicing yoga at 18-years-old and has studied with a broad range of classical Indian teachers including Akhil Bhattacharya and massage master Rahul Bharti in Nepal. He has practiced extensively in India, Brazil, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Japan, and the United States. His interest in bodywork and movement took him to martial arts, including Aikido and Capoeira, Thai yoga therapy, and Acro yoga.
Peter runs his teacher training programs in Tuscany, Denmark and, in tandem with Paula Tursi, in Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Honduras. He lives in Copenhagen with his wife and two daughters.
