I am the owner of Purna Yoga Helsinki and have been a student of the Purna Yoga College since 2012.
My first experience studying yoga in depth was at a Sivananda Yoga school in 2003, later I studied to become a Prenatal and Postnatal teacher with Birthlight UK.
My focus in my own practice as well as teaching yoga is bringing awareness into life. Once we start to focus our mind and really feel our bodies and emotions, we develop a sensitivity to be more in the present, at the same time becoming happy and at peace.
Life is to be lived with joy and being totally conscious of our doings, we can create the life we have always wished for. That is what motivates me and I would like to give to my students inspiration from the yoga mat into daily life.

Beautiful and precise teaching

Nicola teaches permanently at Purna Yoga Helsinki, where I have the pleasure to receive her wisdom and experienced teaching every week. Her classes are both inspirational and amazing. It's not just about the preciseness of the pose, which she teaches so nicely, but also yoga as a whole, including meditation and inquiry through the movement.

Highly recommended

Not only the Purna Yoga Studio Helsinki itself but also the teachers (in my case Nicola) are inviting you to fully arrive in a deep state of presence.

The studio in the center of Helsinki is very clean, offers gender-seperated changing rooms with storage space for your bag, shoes, etc., water, a guest toilet and a welcoming atmosphere. After changing and getting ready for class every student could use the Yoga equipment offered by the studio (mats, blocks, belts, etc.).

Exceptional to me was the beginning of the lesson which started with a mantra which was repeated 3 times - a one to two minute experience of polyphonic unison of OM continued by a two to three minute meditation very similar to this one: http://www.bradwaitesyoga.com/blog-five/2015/8/4/the-homunculus-of-medit.... It not only helped by really getting rid of the thoughts which you were still carrying with you over the day but also supported the feeling of "arriving to presence". After this intense beginning followed a 70 to 80 minute intense, relieving and relaxing Purna Yoga sitting, stretching and standing poses followed by hanging poses. The wrap up of the lesson was again a "Gayatri" mantra - a slightly different one which supported the mind calming fully down an take the positivity, energy and love with you through your whole day.

I can recommend Purna Yoga Helsinki - and especially the teacher Nicola - to anyone who is interested in physically demanding and still relaxing and safe Yoga style which is instructed by well trained teachers who care for your body and your health as much as you should. :)
