Yoga Federation of Finland SUOMEN JOOGALIITTO ry

Satu has been practicing and teaching yoga for over thirty years. She has been a yoga teacher in the Yoga Federation of Finland since 2005, and a yoga teacher trainer since 2008. The basis for her yoga is in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Patanjali´s Yoga sutras. Satu has had the joy of learning yoga from many great yogis, including the Mohan family, Luigi Sgroi, Bruna Rossi and Arvo Tavi, who was a long-term personal student of Gerard Blitz.

Besides teaching Yoga, Satu has been working as a visual artist. In addition, she is a qualified Art Therapist and a senior lecturer in Social Services at Laurea University of Applied Sciences, where she incorporates yoga and meditation into her teaching.

The biggest thing we can learn through yoga is compassion and joy. Self-compassion is a starting point for connection and compassion towards others. Joy follows compassion.

Listen to your heart07h00 – 08h30 Morning PracticeLanguage:English

This series of morning practices incorporates a wakening morning exercise with some pranayama practices to prepare us for the new day. The practice offers the possibility to listen to your heart, your needs for the day and practice self-compassion.

Being loyal to our inner stateTBALanguage:English

In the afternoon workshop, we focus on finding a connection to our own practice. We concentrate on listening to our own bodily and mental needs even if we practice yoga in a group. By being loyal to our inner state of being and by finding our inner flow of prana, we can practice a yoga that is self-compassionate and full of joy.
