Henna Okker


About The Teacher

Henna, originally from Finland, has been travelling around this beautiful planet for most of her adult life.

Since her studies in sociology, sustainable development and human rights, she's been touring the world studying, volunteering and working in hospitality as well as just enjoying nature and discovering other cultures.

Her first university exchange to Uganda showed her that the way to change the world truly starts from inside the individual. Travelling made her realise that learning and teaching happen at the same time and that the roles of student and teacher are both always active in a person and that the energy exchange between them is beautiful. She brings that idea to her yoga classes and believes that teaching yoga is about sharing, giving space and offering support.

Yoga has been in Henna's life in different forms for almost a decade and it has brought her serenity, strength and resilience - both physically and emotionally. She still remembers the powerful moment in a yoga class when she first experienced the true balanced connection of mind, body and spirit. Her own journey in yoga started from asana classes and spread to other areas of her life. She loves plant-based food, ayurveda and holistic healing practises.

All this inspired Henna to learn more, to enable her to help other people find the beautiful world of yoga too. She lived in India for almost a year, practising and living yoga and meditation in different centres all around the country and completed her teaching training in Traditional Hatha Yoga in Rishikesh. She also teaches Yin Yoga, Vinyasa and Aerial yoga.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

Retreat Guru's Vision
