Roots in Finland, citizen of Earth. I've gained life experience and perspective working & studying on four continents: Hong Kong, New York, Cape Town and Helsinki. I am a passionate yoga practitioner of ashtanga, hatha, yin and aerial yoga.
My mission is to help people be happier and healthier through practise of yoga & meditation, for better self-awareness, knowledge, acceptance and growth.
When I'm not doing yoga, I'll be hiking, swimming, surfing, skiing, doing pilates, running... Probably somewhere in Scandinavia or in South Africa. I love being active. I am an eternal student of physiology, psychology, astrology, geology and economics. The Earth and The Universe is the most fascinating playground to be part of.

Yoga for me is the alliance of mind, body and breath. I believe by exploring this relationship, we can learn unconscious patterns that don't serve us, and by repetition of new patterns, transform our inner and outer worlds. I am in particular interested in how a consistent yoga practise can serve us in other areas of our lives, and especially transfer the benefits to performance in other sports.
