Welcome to the Tree of Life

The goal of the Tree of Life is to help people help themselves. Achieving a positive, lasting change and a more conscious life through yoga, meditation and ayurveda.

My name is Gitte Lindgaard. I was born in 1977.  I’ve always had a passion for helping other people and make a difference for others. In 2002 I started working at the National Association for Eating Disorders; this was after completing an internal training. I worked as a counselor, group leader and lecturer.

Food and the psychology behind eating fascinated me so much, so I decided to take a Bachelor in Health and Nutrition from Suhr College specializing in communications. Besides my education, I have taken many courses in therapeutic conversation techniques, conflict resolution, coaching, personal development and more.

I started with Yoga in 2009 after I had been hit by a car and was diagnosed with whiplash. There was not really anything that helped and after many months lying sick in bed, I tried yoga as a last resort. I started practicing yoga at home on the living room floor. The effect was overwhelming and when I had recovered, I began to educate myself and immerse myself in yoga. I started giving private lessons to people with disabilities and injuries. Later I gave lessons at physiotherapy centers and gyms. I am a qualified yoga teacher from the United States and in Denmark, where I have a restorative yoga teacher training.
