Liisa Laine

I took my first yoga class more than 15 years ago. Yoga has always been my way to seek balance in hectic life whilst I had a career in advertising, but also to maintain the well-being of the body and the mind, yet to prevent injuries when I was ski patrolling and downhill biking in Canada. Over the years spiritual journey evolved, yoga and meditation became a lifestyle and I was able to experience a connection to the voice of my heart’s wisdom. Now I am sharing a practice through teaching and healing.

Tunti: Heart Intelligence Flow

Sunday 9.30, studio 5

The aim of the practice is reaching a state of being where physical body and traditional mind are aligned with heart consciousness.

Liisa believes that being aligned physically, mentally and energetically is a key for holistic wellbeing. The practice will start from the physical body, which is important for structure, integrity, and energy flow. However, through the practice, we are aiming to tune in, open up and maintain a connection to deeper levels of our being: mental and emotional bodies, and even beyond if it’s the highest good of one and all. Therefore learning a holistic approach to yoga practice and bringing the practice off the mat too. Liisa call’s this state of being as Heart Intelligence when the mind, the physical and the emotional bodies are connected to the voice of the heart’s wisdom.

Luento: Heart Intelligence in a Mad World

Sunday 12.30, Kellari 2

A heartfelt talk about how Liisa & Monika learned through rough life-experiences to follow the guidance of the heart.

Liisa & Monika share their stories of the search for a life lived in its fullest potential. The heart has a wisdom of its own, but they needed to sail through the rough seas to begin to listen to this inner compass within. They both resigned a well-paying job in the marketing and insurance business, to become yoga teachers. However, they soon faced the fact that it wasn’t as glamorous as they anticipated. Yet they learned not to give up, but to fully trust in life and set up their own boundaries and appreciate themselves, for all that they are. This lecture aims to encourage you not to settle, but to dig deeper, tune in within the inner compass and follow the voice of your own heart’s wisdom.

Liisa and Monika first met at Joogafestival 2017. It was a connection at the first hug, that felt like they have always known each other. Soon after they found that they actually share pretty similar experiences in their own journey’s. They have been following similar spiritual paths in their process of growing and shifting from one dimension to another. Now they are grateful to share the light together through SHALA Helsinki by offering yoga and healing practices for your wellbeing.
