Dr Julie Moltke
Julie Moltke is the owner and founder of Margreteholm Mindfulness Manor. As a medical doctor, Julie developed a strong interest in mental health problems and stress therapy. Working as part of the traditional medical system, it became clear to her, that she believes in practicing holistic medicine, treating her patients as a whole person and not just a symptom.
Searching for answers, while also dealing with personal stress, Julie found a deep interest and love for mindfulness and yoga, leading her to become a yoga teacher and a taking courses in mindfulness. All over the world mindfulness is widely used in clinical settings to treat mental health issues. After her first year as a resident doctor, Julie moved to southern Sweden where she took over the family farm and business. She spent the following year learning about forestry, diving deep into the history and the many small details on the farm.
For a long time, Julie imagined the beautiful manor house and its calming lake surrounded by forest as the perfect setting for luxury and mindfulness retreats, and when she realised that there is no better moment to start living your dreams than now, the Mindfulness Manor was born at Margreteholm.
Julie is currently based in London, from where she is the editor in Chief of an online health platform that explores the world of cannabis science and general health.
Stefan Sartori Olesen
Stefan has a background in communication but his true passion is yoga. He is schooled in traditional Hatha Yoga from The Practice (Bali, Indonesia) and Pyramid Yoga (Koh Phangan, Thailand). Stefan is traditional and systematic in his approach to the practice and sequencing. Stefan is very particular about emphasizing that yoga and Asanas is not the same thing. Asanas, the postures and movements we do on the mat, are just some of the many preparations we are doing in yoga with and for our body before continuing towards the Pranayama (breathwork) and meditation. Practicing with Pranayama and meditation is a journey inwards towards the more subtle layers which can open to sensing and experiencing a higher conciousness and the feeling of finding your way “home” inside yourself.
Furthermore Stefan has a deep passion for nature and its many qualities. Especially the edibles in nature is a great passion and among other activites Stefans used to work in the organization Byhøst which is communicating the many qualities and consciousness of our nature around us in guided tours, dinners and various events with “wild food” on the menu.
Stefan has also been teaching at Balanced.dk yoga retreat at Skoven Kalder in Sweden, at Pyramid Yoga, Thailand, gives private yoga classes and is from April 2019 teaching weekly classes at Astanga Yoga Society, Roskilde, Denmark.
