My name is Salla.
In January 2020, before even entering the Purna Yoga studio for the first time, I saw myself behind that counter where the teacher wishes students welcome. It was a very inspiring image in my head, but I never had planned to do a teacher training or teach, not even then!
I started to do yoga in 2018 in Tampere where I lived back then. It instantly gave me something that I had longed for: peace. I continued practicing yoga in Helsinki when I moved in 2019. I had heard something about Purna Yoga and checked their website when I read the words, ”welcome home”. It really hit me since after my divorce in 2017 I have had this thought in my head that said ”I just want to go home”.
I started to do Purna Yoga online classes in the spring of 2020 and later also studio classes. I loved the atmosphere at the studio, the professional teachers and the love and care. Slowly the idea of doing a teacher training at Purna Yoga Helsinki started to come more and more clear into my mind. I had to do it!
In the training I started to understand what yoga really is and doing an asana practice is really a small part of that. It is meant help you to become that person who you really are.
So, I graduated as a 200-hour Purna Yoga teacher in the spring of 2021 and here I am now, ready to help YOU find back home.
