About Hannele

Thank you for visiting my site.

My name is Hannele and I am from Finland.
This is how my name is pronounced.

I have become a body coach and a Yoga teacher through series of events and experiences in my life.

I was born in the North of Finland and had a somewhat disturbed youth. In my early 20s I moved to UK. I was generally very unhealthy, chronically depressed and quickly became overweight. I couldn’t bear the look of myself.

In my later 20’s I had enough and decided to do something about it and I started running. I went from being a couch potato to running 10k’s, half marathons and eventually marathons.

From there on I developed an interest to human body: my own injuries and niggles got me interested in body, anatomy and exercise and I became a sports therapist in 2010.

I am constantly developing myself and my skills. So over the years I got qualified as a Personal Trainer and added various massage practitioner qualifications to my skills.

Through some more personal challenges and experiences I became a Yoga Teacher in 2017, which remains the main passion in my life alongside with The Human Design system.

So, I’m a professional Human Design Guide as well.

One of the biggest changes in my life has definitely come through the discovery of this knowledge. It has pulled me on such a journey of self-discovery that I couldn’t have imagined existing. I’ve learned to make decisions using my body’s intelligence rather than the mind, and this has changed my life entirely.  I apply the principles of this system to everything that I do. (Read more here.)


These days I train for strength, flexibility and general fitness through Yoga and Yoga-inspired workouts. My training is all about being in the body, staying present in the moment and responding to what I have energy for. It’s simply just physical exercise with mindfulness.

I’ve taken many risks in this life and challenged norms so that I can continue doing what I love. I’ve worked pretty hard to get to where I am today, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m rich in experiences and I’ve learned to love myself just as I am.

I currently live in Espoo, Finland and work as a Yoga teacher and a Personal Trainer at Primitive Skills.
