About

MY


STORY


After my Masters diploma in Finland, I came to the Royal Conservatory in the Hague in The Netherlands to specialise in Early Music. In the conservatory I started the Alexander Technique myself.


Seven years later, when I started teaching baroque double bass in the Helsinki Conservatory in 2006, I soon realised how much the Alexander Technique had helped me in playing my instrument, practicing, performing and handling demanding social situations. I decided to train as an AT teacher myself.


Currently I'm teaching Alexander Technique and music at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Novia University of Applied Sciences and in my own studio at Alexander Technique Amsterdam.
