History

swedish-flag-1443423-kvadrat-litenMediYoga International was founded 2005 by the wife and husband Elisabeth Engqvist and Anders Engqvist.

MediYoga is developed in Sweden and today MediYoga has long standing research collaboration with several of the largest hospitals in Sweden and now research is happening in Norway, Denmark and the USA.

The very first instructor training took shape in 2007 and was the first course in yoga that was aimed exclusively at healthcare personnel.

In 2011 Elisabeth started the very first instructor training in Norway and today instructor trainings are offered all around Norway, Danmark and in the USA.

In order to bring these powerful self-help techniques to a wider international audience, we work with numerous fantastic and successful yoga teachers and their companies today.
