ABOUT THE TEACHERS:
Riikka is an internationally certified holistic practitioner (IPHM) working in the field of nervous system coaching to trauma healing.
At the beginning of her professional career, Riikka worked as a certified personal trainer, lifestyle coach and fitness facility manager in corporate settings. Riikka’s passion to understand the MINDBODY continued to grow, as did her experience and development into the fields of Pilates, pelvic health and birth recovery.
Riikka’s gift for understanding the body was first sparked by her own experience with chronic pain. She suffered from postpartum complications and the health field she worked in did not provide her effective solutions. It was during this time she began to specialize in trauma recovery, attachment repair and Somatic Experiencing, and transitioned to the studio setting where she found fulfilment working with clients one-on-one.
Elisa has been breathing, living and teaching yoga since 2012. This beautiful practice has taken her around the world and given her endless amount of lenses to look through when studying the mind, the body and the breath. Elisa's main approach is the story behind the explicit part. How the body holds on to every single thing that we have lived through and how it truly is the map of personality. In her teachings she wants to point out what are all the things that happens in our system when we practice and how we can use the practice to our advantage. Her own bipolar nature and the need to understand the whole of being has created an endless thirst for knowledge and keeps her studying different aspects of human life.
