Liv Freya Grette

Founder and instructor at Villa Dorothea

Having worked for many years with medicinal yoga in my home town of Nøtterøy, we felt we needed a centre for our friends and customers. We wanted to create a hub for therapy and positive experiences. This has resulted in Villa Dorothea where our aim is to meet and make new friends as well as create memorable experiences together with you.
