I have always felt a lot. Felt a lot, and felt: yes, I must be from this world since I'm here, but I know, sense and feel that there is so much more to it than meets the eye. So I turned my eyes inward, my ears inward. I felt the silence of my bones, saw the inner landscapes of my living, heard the echoes of my ancestors’ voices. I started remembering, and I dropped in.
I have learned to let things flow.
I am courageous enough to meet myself at every moment and be in the channel of remembrance, of the light, of the darkness, and of the otherworldly.
Yoga and intuitive movement have truly given me a home, a ritual, an opening into discovery.
From this discovery a language and a presence has developed over the years to clearly articulate all the messages coming through and to guide others into themselves; into healing. For me this is salvation
Satu has been teaching almost 20 years and is known for her very unique, otherworldly and authentic transmission. Borrowing the words of one of her students: " Satu`s classes leave you with "what the hell just happened?". Its beyond yoga, its a LIFE a LOVE a REALIZATION class”.
She is an experienced yoga teacher (ERYT500) with more than 10000 teaching hours under her belt, Embodied Flow™ senior teacher, a teacher training facilitator since 8 years, Creator of Embodied Yin and Co-creator of Embodied Flow™ Yin program and a Reiki Master, soon to be a movement therapist.

Her exquisite use of music, harmonium playing, singing, humor, loving adjustments, Reiki and clear understanding of human body and how everybody is unique, is well known around the world.
Satu has a background in dancing (ballet) and basketball. She fell in love with yoga in her teens and started teaching almost immediately. Satu has studied two different 200h trainings in vinyasa flow and Hatha, she is immersed in Anusara yoga, continued also with two advanced trainings (300h), the latest with her main, and very loved, pioneering teachers Scott Lyons and Tara Judelle, And has studied and taught yin yoga since 2007.
Satu used to study with Tiffany Cruikshank and has also participated in the offerings of Elena Brower. She is grateful for the amazing knowledge of foundational anatomy that Tiffany taught her and the courage to face her fears and "kicks in the butt" that Elena offered so generously.
Satu has had the privilege to teach and offer workshops, retreats, trainings and classes around the world from Hawaii to Bali. She mainly teaches in Europe and is based in Stockholm.
Satu’s current main teachers are Sally Kempton and Christopher Wallis ( nondual Tantra and meditation) and, of course, Tara and Scott.
Satu is passionate about women`s empowerment and holds Women`s Temple Groups around Northern Europe regularly. She is a Tantra devotee and honors her daily sadhana with passion.
In 2013 Satu founded Pranama (yoga studio) with couple of other teacher friends. It is a collective of yoga teachers dedicated to giving back and to offering Yoga for all! Now the Helsinki Studio is one of the most popular yoga studios in Finland. Its the first ever, and only, donation based studio, where people pay directly to the teacher teaching the class, not the studio. At least in Finland.
Now the mission has grown into Pranama in Stockholm (www.pranama.yoga)
Satu and her Authentic Flow Tribe (www.authentic-flow.com) run 50h, 100h, 200h and 500h-teacher trainings and advanced teacher trainings (we are a Yoga Alliance RYS200 & RYS300 school ) all over the world.
