Valtteri is a passionate mover. Backround in kitesurfing, surfing, freeskiing and stand up paddling Valtteri enjoys discovering new ways of movement. Last years Valtteri has been diving deep into the world of partner acrobatics, acroyoga, thai massage and strengthening body with natural and functional movement. He enjoys the constant process of learning and sharing knowledge as a teacher. As a teacher Valtteri likes to create a space where the journey is equally as important as the goal. Originally from Finland but spends many months a year abroad learning and teaching.
Since 2013 Heikki has been following the footsteps of his friend and co-acrobat Valtteri into the world of AcroYoga. The journey has already taken him to Sweden, Denmark, Indonesia and back to train with renowned international teachers. Bringing it all back to the constantly growing kula in Helsinki he's always on the look for new acroyogis wanting a kickstart to their own journey. Being a certified teacher in snowboarding, alpine skiing and sailing as well as a part-time teacher in elementary schools he certainly knows what it takes to simplify complicated movement and create an invigorating space for learning. Be it a workshop or an open jam, you are more than welcome to pick his brain about AcroYoga fundamentals or trending washing machines.
