Based in Helsinki, Finland, Saija started her journey to explore movement through partner dances, yoga, contemporary dance and contact improvisation.
In acroyoga she found interesting the way of connecting with the partner, challenging the body and having so much fun along the way. For her these practices have been life changing and uplifting, unveiling the potential of human body to grow and develop infinitely.
She's passionate about combining softness and dance with the practice of acroyoga, drawing inspiration from her years of practice in contact improvisation.
With her partner Petteri they teach (at the moment irregurarly) in Helsinki, and as enthusiastic travellers they are happy to meet other acroyogis in jams around the globe.
