My name is Catarina Holsmten-Carrizo, I love yoga, gardening and long walks with my dogs.

My studies started with a BA degree at Arcada Polytechnic (Helsinki-Finland). Later I specialized with a Master in Environmental Economics and Management at SLU (Uppasala-Sweden). I have always been drawn to nature and philosophy, which is why sustainability issues are close to my heart.

I completed a yoga teacher training (200h) with Yoga Rocks (Lahti-Finland) 2015 and I have been teaching yoga since then.

About Yoga...

My teacher training consisted of Yin yoga and Vinyasa flow yoga.

As a very yin person myself I like to often slow down also my flow classes. “Slow and with control” is the sentence I’ve repeated a lot to my students. This doesn’t mean that you will not get a sweat out from my class though! 

At the moment I mostly teach yin and yang classes which is a mix of both styles. I like for my students to explore the different asanas to get to know their bodies and learn how to adjust to best suit their bodies' needs.

I have also done a teaching course in pilates and held a yogilates class, which is a mix of both yoga and pilates.

Let me know if you have any specific requests or have a themed class in mind  (e.g. bachelorette parties).
