I have graduated from a certified Mindfulness Teacher Training course and have also been studying the MBSR program (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), a technique developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I teach groups and individuals in English and Finnish.

What does mindfulness mean to me?

I found mindfulness back in 2011 and it quickly became a grounding a force in my life. This road has been life-changing. My interest in health and well-being has grown over the years and in 2017 I decided to take a leap and study to become a Mindfulness Teacher. Choosing to find more lightness, compassion and groundedness in my life has brought me immense joy, which I hope to share with my students. 

I'm in the middle of writing an inspirational memoir on how mindfulness changed me from a  boozy-suicidal-shopaholic-fashionista to a soulful Mindfulness Teacher.

Mindfulness is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that can improve your well-being and relationships. It is vital to remember that we do not strive to empty the mind through mindfulness, we are building a more honest and accepting life by bringing our attention to in the present moment without judgment.


Through mindfulness practices we can know ourselves better, let go of perfectionist tendencies and cultivate a more compassionate attitude towards ourself and others. Practising mindfulness builds a more understanding, curious and honest attitude towards the difficult and positive experiences in our lives.

To me mindfulness is a journey back home.

We already are perfect they way we are – we just need to step aside and let life happen.
