My name is Charlotta Eskola and I was born in Espoo in Finland in the year 1975. I was a quite happy little girl and everyone who knew me back then remembers the particularity of me wanting to hug and embrace everyone, even strangers!
When some years ago I found Purna Yoga, I immediately connected to that same feeling I had as a child – to connect to people, to embrace them and share the immense feeling of love. That’s how I knew that I wanted to teach Yoga.
I graduated from the Purna Yoga College in the year 2019 as a 200-h Purna Yoga teacher.
But all the years before that?
After High school I wanted to see the world. I travelled to many places and loved meeting all kinds of people. Most of my time I spent in Italy, were I found the passion for Yoga through the great master in Sivananda Yoga, Pasquale D`adami. I am still truly grateful to him for his teachings.
In Italy I also found my future husband. Together we chose the path of creativity, and later we found ourselves designing jewelry for our own company Lorukoru while taking care of 3 beautiful kids.
Creativity has always been an important part of my life and that is why I admire the Mother, who continued the work of Sri Aurobindo in the Ashram of Pondicerry. The Mother says: ”Art and Yoga has in the center the same principle. The aim is to come conscious in both. You need to see and feel something beyond the ordinary vision and feeling to go within and carry out from there deeper things.”
Yoga completed my life. I am now happy to be able to share the path and beauty of Yoga. In the same way as I once was blessed with this sacred knowledge through my great masters Pasquale D`adami in Italy and Tove Palmgren in Finland.
”All life is Yoga” and the best part is that the path of Yoga has only started!
