Vea Vainio first started yoga in Oulu in 2007 when she was 17 years and looked for ways to support her overall-
wellbeing. Vea has danced actively since a little girl but yoga gave her something new – a feeling of deeper peace. For many years yoga ”came and went” as Vea travelled and lived in Finland and abroad.
In 2017 Vea felt a call to deepen her yoga practice. As a beautiful answer to her wish she then found
Purna Yoga Helsinki ́s happy and cozy studio and gradutated as a 200-h Purna Yoga Teacher in 2018
with the guidance of Tove Palmgren and Nicola Moberg.
”With Purna Yoga I have learned to see myself in a totally different light than before: I can actively and
positively influence the wellbeing of my body, mind and Heart by practicing Purna Yoga. I have learned
many practical tools to feel more free, light, happy, grounded and complete in this hectic world we live in.
Purna Yoga practice for me is a journey with many beautiful gifts which I am happy to share with others.
When I think of Purna Yoga and its teachers, I feel deeply thankful and joyful in my Heart.”
Vea is also educated as a Professional Dancer, an Occupational Therapist and a Yoga Teacher for
Special Needs groups. As a Dancer she works in the fields of Social and Health care and Community &
Social Arts by creating dance performances, projects and workshops. In addition to yoga, dance is for
Vea a way to express herself and to feel the most connected to her Heart.
