Sami Mälkiä

Pranyama / Ashtanga yoga

Sami’s pranayama classes offer traditional breathing techniques to affect your thoughts and emotions. His experience in ashtanga yoga and pranayama has made him understand the importance of deep breathing in our well-being. Throughout the years Sami has demonstrated a commitment not only to his students but also his personal practice. Along with maintaining a daily asana practice, Sami cultivates subtlety and depth through pranayama. He believes practicing asana to the rhythm of your breath, ideally in a Mysore setting, allows you to go deeper and enables the body to open. “It’s all about being aware of one’s breath,” he says. “It’s about cultivating gratitude in the present moment.” Sami has practiced pranayama with Sri. O.P.Tiwari at Kaivalyadham Yoga Institute, India since 2009.

Yoga is a multidimensional practice to discover and realize one’s body, mind and soul.. It is through our body awareness that we deepen our holistic self knowlege and step by step learn to shift aspects learnt on the mat, out of the mat into the daily life to best benefit our wellbeing.

Janita aims to highlight everyone’s unique nature in her teaching and therapy. In her classes the focus is as well on the breath as it is on the strenght, lightness and openess of the body and mind.
