Hi, I am Jari.

My purpose is to be a creative, supportive, encouraging and effective Rocket Yoga facilitator, so the students can learn to feel & love The Rocket in all its expressions, so we all can have the great benefits of Yoga for Life.

I first found yoga in Beijing, China 2001. I was working in IT service support at the time. There were yoga classes at the hotel I was staying at. One hour classes in the gym. Later I found out it was Bikram yoga without heat. It was not an easy class, but I got hooked and wanted to learn more.

I started reading yoga books, and taking ashtanga classes.  As I was already teaching group fitness classes, I took BODYBALANCE teacher training. I liked that very much as it is choreographed to the music, creating a meditative yoga flow.

Then came possibilities of teaching yoga, but I wanted to have a yoga teacher training first. So I went to Frog Lotus Yoga teacher training, in vinyasa flow style (RYT200) in Italy. And started teaching right after the course.

Hungry to do and learn more yoga, I went to Thailand, Absolute Yoga for advanced (RYT 500) training. Learning more about ashtanga vinyasa with Michel Besnard, yin yoga with Nora Mangiamele, and womens yoga/restorative yoga with Sarah Avant Stover. This time I was on a sabbatical and also did a dive master course (PADI) in Indonesia. After that I started teaching ashtanga basics, and restorative yoga at the gyms.

2012 came a possibility to take Rocket Yoga training in Firenze, Italy.  As I started practising the Rocket I found myself learning a lot. And by teaching the Rocket I was learning a lot more from my students. I was hooked! This was time when I decided to open It's Yoga Helsinki.  I started looking for a place to rent and found current location as the birch leaves started crowing. You can see birch trees out of the studio window. And that is why there is birch leave in the logo of the studio.

I have a sports background in figureskating, sports aerobics, and group fitness. These have provided me skills that I can use as a yoga teacher.  I have a bachelor degree in Business Administration, and a masters degree in Information Management Systems. 

Currently I'm on the It's Yoga journey, practising, learning, and teaching at Elixia - HiYoga. And doing teacher trainings for It's Yoga.

2019 I trained as Massage Therapist. Enhancing the knowledge of the human body.

I love the Rocket Vinyasa Yoga. The modifications and variation provide everyone their own yoga practice, an experience, a journey on and off the mat.
