Teachers

Petri Räisänen, a father of three children, is internationally known and respected Ashtanga Yoga teacher. In his yogic path Petri has studied with many respected Ashtanga Yoga teachers such as Derek Ireland (his first certified teacher), Radha Warrel, Gwendoline Hunt, Lino Miele and Eddie Stern, in addition to R. Sharath Jois and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. His special project has been the two Ashtanga Yoga books, Yoga Chikitsa and Nadi Shodhana, published in Finnish and in English.

Petri focuses on integrating healing and therapy with yoga, meeting student’s individual needs and guiding their progress. Petri’s yoga pose adjustments are gentle, effective, therapeutic and, according to some, almost magical, and originate (besides his own practice and teaching) from his past work as a traditional Finnish folk healer and naturopath.

Juha Javanainen, a father of five children, has practiced Ashtanga yoga with Radha Warrell, Derek Ireland, Lino Miele and Eddie Stern, in addition to R. Sharath Jois and Sri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Juha continues to teach in Helsinki while working also as a yoga school director. Juha also continues to study and to practice Ashtanga Yoga as taught by Pattabhi Jois and T. Krishnamacharya. He is also studying the Yoga Philosophy of Patanjali. His special project was to translate the primary work of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois on Astanga Yoga, the book called Yoga Mala, into Finnish in 2002.

Juha wishes to share his experiences on practice and teaching, how to work with the body&mind for healing purposes within the yoga practice.

Petri and Juha are the co-founders of Ashtanga Yoga Helsinki, and Sri K Pattabhi Jois blessed the school in 1997 to teach the traditional Astanga Yoga method.
