Designed to deepen your practice, discover creative methods of teaching, awaken the felt sense and understanding of the body’s somatic wisdom.

"From the act of observation in which attention is awakened,

arises the art of teaching."

- Vanda Scaravelli

Yoga is not a serious practise. It is a practise of healing, exploration and renewal. We will focus on undoing the body and processing towards becoming lighter by responding to the invitation of ground and space around us. * Raising awareness to pelvic floor and how to include it into your own practice and teaching

Scaravelli inspired yoga has no methods or set sequences. This approach encourages the practitioner to create a strong relationship to the ground, the breath and to awaken the spine.

Holding a safe space for your exploration, are 4 yoga teachers: Helen Noakes, Rupert Johnson, Meri Mort & Hanna-Mari Nieminen, who all are living in the footsteps of Vanda Scaravelli’s revolutionary yoga work and have found their own voice and emphasis to the teaching.


Helen is passionate about spontaneous, intuitive movement in the form of waves and spirals and includes her love of ecstatic dance into her teaching style. Goa has been Helen’s second home for many years, as well as enjoying leading yoga seminars, teacher trainings and intensives in Europe (already 10 times in Finland!), India and USA. Her passion is sharing this style of yoga that has brought many gifts and learnings to her life.

She also offers trainings in Chavutti Thirumal (massage by foot pressure), which has a strong influence on her teaching style.

Helen’s aim is to invite a lightness of being and joy to our movement practice and to encourage others to listen and respond to their intuition with safety and awareness.


Rupert teaches Yoga, Qigong and Kung Fu and is a practitioner of Shamanic Healing in the Toltec tradition. He facilitates movement and meditation retreats and co-created the Shala 142 retreat space in Goa dedicated to music and the healing arts. He also combines body-work with sound vibration. Ru’s passion is helping others find integration and authenticity in their expression. He brings an understanding of water and hydrostatic dynamics, offering others the chance to immerse deeply in their own fluid nature. Helen and Ru co-direct the Yoga Health Mandala LTD trainings.


Meri is a creative teacher who is known to be innovative and wild freedom seeker. Meri is a regular teacher and teacher trainer in Yoga School Shanti and also the organizer of the training. She loves suttle energetic adjustments and partner work in classes. Her main focus is bringing somatic awareness into movements and finding softness and intelligent ways to work around the joints. Her second love is arts and illustrating and she is also an author who gets inspired of tribal connections, womens circles, moon cycles, poetry and free expression.


Hanna-Mari “Hami” teaches yoga on regular basis in Helsinki. Exploration and playfulness are in the core of her way of practicing and teaching yoga as well as micro movements, pranayama and meditation. Hami is specialised in pre- and postnatal yoga and has studied these with several professionals both in Finland and abroad. In addition she works as a doula and teaches birth preparation classes. As a mother of three children Hami has a lot of experience of a down-to-earth everyday yoga practice.
