The teachers

We have gathered a team of teachers that we love and are proud of. They come from various movement backgrounds and their stories are very different, but they all share the belief that movement can and should be moving.

All are experienced. All are beginners.
Get to know them below.

Jeppe Skovgaard

I began climbing buildings at night because I couldn’t sleep. It became parkour. I began yoga because parkour made me so strong that I could no longer breathe. I began acroyoga because I lacked a connection with other people and missed a community.

I started Rört because I believe that all kinds of movement have specific qualities, that they are all potentially moving and touching – and because I have a burning desire to create a community in Copenhagen across disciplines where we can meet as human beings and inspire, touch, and move each other.

Acroyoga moves me when I see students exploring new territory. When my trust becomes their self-confidence. When a new light shines in their eyes and freedom is apparent in their movements and minds.

Morten Vinther

I have always been drawn towards fighting and powerful playing – as it is called in professional termsand the physical and mental qualities, the kind of activities that cultivate and develop us.

I have moved in the traditional martial arts disciplines and traditional fighting over self-defense theory and -practice to modern grappling- and submission wrestling – and I believe that through fighting we are able to meet ourselves and others on a deeper and very fundamental level. That fighting can make us aware of our own abilities and limitations – and humble and respectful towards our fellow human beings and animals.

It might sound illogical but I have experienced on my own body how rough fighting can put the ego in its proper place and allow space for more caring, compassion, and indulgence.

It moves me to give others a playful introduction to the complexities and chaos, aggression and physical preparation of fighting. I have been teaching fighting and physical conditioning for more than 15 years and it is still part of what brings me most joy to teach.

Nanna Wagner

My teaching style is characterised by a curiosity of body awareness, sensibility, and subtle movement. In a world where our energy and awareness is often directed outwards, I wish to bring the attention back to ourselves by exploring the body through simple movements. When we bring the energy back home to ourselves, we can recover, heal, and experience more clarity about what is important to us.

My wish is that through our practice we are reminded of our connection with each other – while at the same time strengthened as individuals in the differences we may have. In that sense yoga can support and nourish both the community and the life of the individual.

It moves me to teach when the wondrous silence arises and one settles into one’s inherent trust between body, mind, and thought.

Rikke Libak

I have loved dance in all its manifestations my whole life. 18 years ago when I came across Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms, I felt instantly at  “home”. Here I could move freely, honestly, and vividly.

I have always been interested in promoting health and after having worked as project nurse on a stress clinic, I decided to educate myself to become a MBSR-coach (mindfulness). In this I quickly realised the value of bringing the qualities and attitudes of mindfulness onto the dancefloor – and assist others in doing the same.

Dance moves me because it grants us an opportunity to “be in ourselves” and with each other in an authentic, present, and aware manner. When we allow the dance to move “inside-out” we throw off some masks and we can experience to be met and perceived as who we are. It creates joy and makes us brave, free, and full of gratefulness – also outside the dancefloor. That moves me.

Peter Hunter

Movement was my way out of addiction. As teenager I stoned myself with hash and found an identity in graffiti, theft, and trouble. Parkour offered my adventurousness a positive playground. Yoga and dance taught me to dare to show myself without perfection and to be more authentic.

And then I have been running all of my life. In the past, I ran from things. My parents. My emotions. The police. Shy and afraid of conflict I won the elementary school race every year. I’m done with all that now. Now I run and move to get closer to myself, to others, and to nature.

I get moved when I move without a need to escape from exactly where I am. And – especially – when I can share that movement with you.

Cipa Pape

I love to play around and improvise. To look at other peoples’ bodies and get inspired. To me yoga is a way of challenging and exploring the body and the mind. Through softness, strength, and breath. What is actually happening in the breaks? When the heart is beating and silence embraces you?

As a singer it has always been important to me that a yoga class is being carried by a voice full of intention and interest. Interest in what is happening right here and now. A voice that speaks to you and creates a universe where your practice can grow.

Yoga FLOW moves me when the calmness settles in the whole room. When the common flow creates a common breath, a common intention. It can be incredibly beautiful to watch everybody stay seated in silence after the class has ended, and no one is rushing onwards.

Naya Moll

After I graduated as a dancer and choreographer, my primary movement practices have actually been anything but dance. I have practiced yoga for many years and further explored new ways to experience bodily practices in natural movement training and playfighting – both because I am eternally curious and love to learn, but also because I had lost the desire to dance.

I recently completed the Living Yolates Teacher Training in which I found a way to separate dance as work and scenic art form, and dance as a feeling of joy and presence in the body. I value both aspects highly. It is still important for me to practice “the inner dance” and thus it makes me very happy to facilitate free dance in Rört where dance is experienced from inside and creates enjoyment and energy.

It moves me when the joy of dancing has nothing to do with your skills – when dance is a bodily state of mind, of joy and presence – and when people meet around their shared passion and create meaningful communities.

Line Bangsbo

My passion is the bodily encounter with ourselves and others, and the curiosity towards how we bring freedom, intimacy, and creativity into this meeting. My exploration investigates how we accommodate ourselves and others when we meet, and how we invite intimacy into this meeting while feeling our own boundaries. That encounter is healing, and in it we create space to experience further aspects of what it means to be human.

I use many methods to work with this in my teaching: yoga, meditation, acroyoga, theatre, massage, and singing. My experience is that a joyful connection to the world begins with a joyful connection to ourselves and that is what I want to share in my teaching – where I put great emphasis on the safe space where it is fun and nice to explore.

I have been teaching since 2008 and have for the past six years held numerous courses, workshops, and retreat in acroyoga, yoga, meditation, and thaiyoga-massage. I live on Møn, teach in Copenhagen, and travel frequently.

Pierre Enaux

My first meeting with movement was through sport. It started with ball games. The physicality I acquired from it made me an outdoor kid. I would climb anywhere, go explore the forest nearby… One day my older sisters gave me a set of juggling balls. I would literally disappear in the practice, rhythmically throwing objects in the air all day long. From then on movement was part of my day anywhere, anytime. Later on, I encountered dancing – and moving became my path like a spiritual practice would be for others.

I believe movement is a deep expression of oneself and is a powerful, natural tool to connect with one’s environment. I am convinced that there is no way to fully understand the effects and consequences of body movements and therefore I practice my movement exploration with curiosity, respect, fascination and playfulness. Dancing is after all simply and mainly about letting go.

Paradoxically, as a teacher I focus on simple tasks to create a safe and controlled space – but always with the aim to create a practice that isn’t just rewarding in the here and now, but also something that can spill over and be incorporated into daily life.

It moves me when movement is a connection to the unknown.

Åsa Kalyani Rudehill

Like many others, I have always sought a freedom. For years I found it in dancing but it slowly disappeared the more I educated myself, and dance became a performance. For me, yoga was closely related to dance but showed me more of an inner world where freedom was independent of performance.

It is definitely the meditative part of yoga that interests me and most easily grants me the experience of freedom – and kindles my burning wish to share it with others. Thus, meditation has come to fill more and more of my own practice and I wish and hope it is reflected in my way of teaching.

Meditation and yoga move me when I reach the experience of peace and freedom.

Kasper Winther

I started my journey in the martial arts for self defense reasons. Slowly my interest became more “geeky”, and at some point I ended up competing in various promotions and competions such as the WKF World Cup.

Today, I hold a Master degree in pedagogy, and teach movement from a physical and holistic perspective. I love for us train with creativity in mind, improve ourselves and explore our senses. I believe that looking holistically at our movement practice gives us the opportunity to become aware of all aspects of being human.

I see my teaching as my craft and I love doing it – and I love the versatility in it, as it differs every time, depending on the location, the students and the subject.

It moves me to be touched by calmness and nature. And then I’m awfully often moved when I’m in Rört.

Katinka Wissing

I love moving in all kinds of ways. Movement gives me energy and calmness and is my tool to create and maintain contact to myself.

My curiosity for movement has taken me out and about, but I always return to parkour. For me, parkour is about freedom, community and about building trust and connection to oneself, one’s surroundings and the people around you.

And that is the pillars when I teach. I aim to create a trusting community where there is room for you to challenge yourself no matter your starting point. I want to create a space where we can be fully concentrated and present – but with plenty of room for play, laughter and letting lose.

It moves me when I light the fire in peoples’ eyes. When they give in to mix of challenge, smile, sweat and community. When we all go all-in, because everybody sees and feels what they gain from it.

Dorte Bjerre Jensen

I have always been a very active and physical human being. I’ve ventured through life as a football player and martial artist doing taekwondo. and for me that was always about understanding the game between the people involved – understanding the contact that was established, and how I related to that myself. Then I started doing contact improvisation, and suddenly it felt like everything fell into place; I felt home.

Today, as a dancer, performer, researcher, facilitator, therapist and human being my practice is deeply rooted in bodily awareness.

I find contact impro to be a necessity in society at large, because it teaches us to listen more. It teaches us to listen to others in a fully present and compassionate way, but most importantly it reminds us to listen to ourselves and gives us a possibility to regain that bodily awareness. Become aware of our need for both touch and boundaries – and how they can coexist.

I am constantly moved in classes. By people showing up, people staying and people exploring and investigating themselves.

Frederik Sissener

Six years ago my world had come to a halt. I couldn’t feel what was important anymore. 16 years of my life dedicated to playing someone else through acting. When I found yoga, I was a bird with broken wings who needed help to fly again. Continuity became my answer, moving my body and mind every day. Yoga provided me with a space for all those suppressed feelings and made me realize that they were signals, not punishments. Suddenly it was simply about being present, right here, right now.

Yoga teaches me new things all the time. I see a movement and have to try it out, learn it, and make it my own.

It moves me to see people be completely present in their own body.
