Maiken Sarv is a yoga and pilates teacher who was born in 1986 and grew up in Estonia in a little town called Otepää. Maiken started working as a fitness instructor in 2006 in Tartu, where she studied to become an Electrical Engineer. After completing 8 year of study in Estonia, Spain and Italy, she realised that her heart lay in the wellness industry and began her journey into this new sphere. In 2014 Maiken became an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga student and attended yoga trainings and schools all over Europe and India. After 7 years of teaching in Italy, she decided to move to Finland to follow her dream to make a change in the fitness-movement industry. Under the company of Erimover in Finland, she's developing a new innovational movement system to create better and deeper connection in human kind. Maiken is currently teaching and sharing her knowledge in Sri Lanka by teaching the classes both online and in the local yoga shala.
Maiken has dedicated her life to find the connection between the body and mind and guiding her students daily on their journey. She practices meditation and yoga daily and is constantly studying to expand her knowledge of spirituality and the body-mind connection.
Yoga practice is like a healing process on the mat. After just a few moments between deep inhalation and exhalation, we slow down the whole nervous system and create the connection within the body and mind. Asana practice helps to lower the vibration of our mind that leads to the natural flow of thoughts, creating the peacefulness that guides us to the window into the true self.
In her own words "The combination of the deep breath and the soft movements opens up the way to the mindfulness and keeps us in the present moment. There are no right or wrong movements; let the body and the breath create the natural flow. Everything that feels good creates an endless outflow of positive energy."
Maiken will be waking us up on Sunday 23rd August with an inspiring a empowering flow, as part of our Virtual Fleekend:
