I honour the very qualities that embodies yoga to the fullest wave of devotion. Change is constant - in all levels of life, and my dharma is to support practise that expands our boundaries and transforms perspectives towards inner truth and integrity.
I hold Master’s degree in Somatic Movement and I am certified in Yoga Alliance and Kundalini Research Institute (E-RYT 500) in Hatha, Ashtanga Vinyasa and Kundalini Yoga, from the lineage of Krishnamacharya, Yogi Bhajan and B.K.S Iyengar. I have been actively leading teacher training programmes and retreats around Asia, educating and elevating hundreds of students to find deeper connection to the subtle bodies and sensory awareness, which I have witnessed as a doorway for higher forms of transformation.
I grew up close to the North Pole in Lapland, Finland, and my yearning for self realization, passion for ancient yogic science, Advaita Vedanta and Buddhist meditation led me to spend years seeking the truth inside. I immersed myself over and over again in silence and solitude in Buddhist monasteries, seeking guidance from spiritual masters and teachers of Non-Duality in the lineage of Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj.
I seek ways to help my students to find more intuitive dialoque with our humble and wise heart, so that we can every day choose to create a new definition and feeling of “who am I?”, and to wake up into our fullest potential. My background in African studies and humanitarian field always reminds me of the cries of this earth and keeps deeply believing in the rise of the human consciousness.
I share the practises of committed sadhana and self-inquiry, where yoga is not seen as a physical practise, but a way of liberation and awakening by detaching from the old stories that we hold within. Bhakti yoga and Raja yoga are deepening the experience of what it means to live yogic and sattvic life, so that all the practises are brought into daily divine human experience, in which the bodymind is finally free to ungrip and return into its innate silence.
INVESTIGATE THE TRUTH IN THE TOTALITY OF YOUR BEING.
VANISH INTO AN ATOM LEVEL,
TO BECOME INTIMATE WITH THE INFINITE.
UNLOCK THE HIDDEN MEMORIES AND LOOSE THE "DOER".
BREAK THE SKIN WIDE OPEN SO THAT THE HEART ONLY REMAINS.
