My name is Anders Krag Brysting, and I was born in 1958.
Besides writing this blog and paddling my kayak, I teach yoga at the Scandinavian Yoga and Meditation School in Copenhagen. I did my yoga teacher training there in 1995 and have been teaching since then. I live in the affiliated ashram in Købmagergade in Copenhagen.
The kayaker Anders Brysting
My time as a kayaker started a little late in life, in 2012, but my joy of the sea started early. Like many others living by the coast in Denmark, I started sailing as a boy, and when my family moved to Kerteminde, I was soon in an Optimist dinghy. Since then, I have sailed a lot, both in Danish waters and also around the world.
Not only the sea, but also the mountains have attracted me with hiking, climbing and mountaineering.
A knee injury, from a skiing accident in my younger days, has dogged me on all my trips, and has, despite much surgery, become worse over the years.
When the fifth surgery made most of the pain go away, I decided to leave the active wilderness life behind. Not an easy decision. So, it was great to discover that the sea kayak is perfect for touring.
There is almost no limit to the adventures you can have in a sea kayak, without straining your knees.
Has he ever learned anything?
In addition to my training as a yoga teacher, I also trained as a ceramist at the School of Arts and Crafts in Kolding. I have also studied computer science at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense for a few semesters and Sanskrit at the University of Copenhagen.
The amateur photographer Anders Brysting
I like taking pictures. Not that I rush around with a camera and a lot of lenses all the time, but I enjoy finding an interesting subject and messing with it in Darktable. Pictures are therefore a natural part of this blog
We might meet on the water.
