Sanna, is a life-long Yoga student (& sharer/teacher) committed to the central idea that Yoga and ancient Eastern wisdom can help others achieve greater happiness and well-being in their lives.

Her journey started in Finland and her strong yearning towards India and a more spiritual, meaningful way of life, pulled her eventually to the East and her beloved island of Bali.

Sanna, held a daily practice under the ashtanga tradition for 14 years before she decided to start to teach and share the knowledge she had gained by studying directly with Pattabhi Jois, Manju Jois, Sharath Jois and most of the big names in the ashtanga world. She also studied Jivamukti, Vinyasa, Iyeyngar and Tripsichore & all the time kept her own ashtanga practice going on.

While studying at the Asian Classics Institute in Singapore, she found further inspiration through the teachings of her beloved Lamat Marut who authorised and encouraged her to teach 'Tibetian Heart Yoga' - an ancient and largely undiscovered method of internal Yoga based on the principles of Buddhism.
Sanna kept on meeting & studying with her Lama frequently. Lama Marut passed away Oct 2019.
Bhakti Yoga, the path of devotion, is very close to Sanna's heart and she's been travelling to India the past three years to study with Vijay Krsna.

Sanna's core passion lies in the Yoga Philosophy and she shares this ancient wisdom of life in Yoga Teacher Trainings.

After Sanna taught in Europe & Singapore she's was for a number of years an inhouse teacher and teacher trainer at Radiantly Alive in Ubud, Bali.
The offerings in her yoga 'menu' are : Yoga Philosophy, Ashtanga, Tibetan Heart Yoga, Vinyasa, YogaLates, Roll n Release, Pranayma, Meditation, Fly High Yoga, Gentle Flow . . .and generally learning to live up to our name tag 'Human-Kind.' We can learn to be both with a bit of practise :)
