I am a mother of two daughters, a wife and an elementary school teacher. In the past I had several stress related diseases. Three years ago I was standing on an yoga mat for the first time. It was love at first sight. With the therapy of ashtanga yoga I found peace, harmony and awareness. Today yoga is more than a hobby for me, it´s a lifestyle. Yoga is keeping my body, mind and spirit balanced, on and off the mat.
In june 2009 I moved, with my family, from the Finnish countryside to the high paced and crowded Osaka. Moving to Japan has given me the opportunity to deepen my knowledge of yoga at Spirit Yoga Studio. In october 2009 I joined Yoga Alliance 200 teacher training course. A new door was opened when Rachel Zinman introduced the sister science of yoga, Ayurveda. In june 2010 I participated in Spirit Yoga Ayurveda Foundations Course with Jodi Boone. From june 2010 I am a registered teacher at Yoga Alliance.
My yoga self practice is focused on pacifying my Vata dosha and regulary attending various workshops, classes and reading books. I have been inspired by renowned yoga teachers such as Lucy Roberts, Jason Crandell, David Newman, Cole Dano and Yumiko Terasaki.
The biggest inspiration is life itself. Every day is filled with possibilities. Life is a precious gift. Yoga is the way to happiness and finding your inner light so that you can shine like a beautiful star.
