Meet Aino,

I want to take you to a journey of self-discovery through somatic practices to explore your inner worlds, release tension in body and mind and (re)connect with your natural state of joy and ease. 

I have years of experience guiding women into more body-based living, and I do it with joy and compassion, encouraging you to go deeply within yourself when experiencing your body and emotions, use movement as medicine for the body and soul and overall live a little bit lighter and brighter. 



Do I need experience of movement or yoga practices?
