On Monday 17th December, criminologist Maria Dufva will be sharing her experience and knowledge about our children’s life online (in Swedish, click here tickets www.familyflow.se/butik). The talk is organised by Family Flow and we got in touch with Ulrika Fallenius that runs it, to see what else she and the company do.
Ulrika's answer? Parenting made easy!
Parenting Facilitor Ulrika Fallenius runs Family Flow from her home in Djursholm. Parents are invited for a healthy breakfast in her kitchen followed by a workshop by the open fire in the living room. They meet to discuss and learn how to handle the day-to-day challenges of being a parent.
"We don’t dictate how you should bring up your children," says Ulrika. "We help you to understand your child’s temperament, define your own family values and give you tools to stay calm, as well as to manage your child’s behaviours. These make life as a parent easier and more fulfilling and help you to build an even stronger connection with your child so that they thrive, boosting their self-worth too."
Courses and workshops are designed for parents with children aged 4-years up to and including teenagers. Topics covered are (among others):
For those who can’t make it to the courses, Ulrika offers an in-depth online parenting course as well as private consultations, face-to-face or on Skype. Ulrika trained in London so is very happy to help in English!
Daily reminders and words of parenting wisdom can be found on Instagram at @familyflow.se and for more information about the courses and contact with Ulrika, check out www.familyflow.se

Djursholm Yoga studio, located right on the central square Djursholms torg, is under new leadership when Jenny Hermelin stepped up as the new owner in June 2018. In addition to running the business and building a team of teachers for the studio, you’ll also find Jenny on the mat teaching classes herself. Jenny’s vision for Djursholm Yoga is to create a space for anyone interested in what conscious movement and more awareness can do to body and mind, and to develop a sense of community where all are welcome. Classes and workshops can be taught in English or Swedish to suit the class.
Flexibility and stress relief are the most common reasons people begin a yoga practice. While the majority of yoga practitioners are women, the number of men practicing yoga is rising. A clear sign of this is that the class Yoga for Stiff Men has become one of the most popular at the studio. People of all ages practice yoga and the age group 50+ (also known as the 'golden yogis') is the fastest growing segment.
“The practice on the mat is really a practice for life off the mat. Djursholm Yoga wants to contribute to help you become more aware. Of your body, how it feels, what it can do. Of your breath. And your thoughts, feelings and actions – if you choose to. By moving consciously your body will get stronger and more flexible, and your mind will get calmer. Ready to take on the world 🤸♀Everything we offer at Djursholm Yoga is conscious movement, including the non-yoga classes.” ~ Jenny Hermelin

Nora Deli opened just a month or so ago and is already a popular spot! This is not your standard fare - this is a deli with heart and soul. You may know Nora Deli’s owners, Robert and Malin Wåhlén, from Innovativ Catering which is located right next door. Innovative is the perfect word to describe Nora Deli and I think the time is right for this fresh, new deli concept. They have a limited selection of exceptional items - from fresh baked bread to locally pressed apple juice. The place isn’t big and yet they have a lot to offer.
Nora Deli owners Robert and Malin Wåhlén:
Are you in the mood for a delicious breakfast or lunch? Come in, sit down and enjoy your meal that is made to order.
If you’re in a hurry or need a meal to go, try one of the individual take away meals.
Do you need dinner for tonight? You can choose from prepared meat, potatoes, and sauce. Or, you can buy all the fixings to assemble and cook your own pizza at home - fresh crust, mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. Or buy a nice flank steak to put on the grill with some fresh asparagus.
I was delighted that I stopped in to the Nora Deli. The food was excellent and the staff were helpful and friendly (and busy!). I love knowing there is an artisen deli in my neighborhood where I can pop in to buy a fresh baked loaf of bread, a dozen locally grown eggs or meet a friend for a delightful lunch.
Hours: Monday & Saturday: 10:00 - 15:00 Tuesday - Friday: 10:00 - 18:30
Address: Nora Torg 5, 182 34 Danderyd. Free parking on site
