As a two-time Finnish Olympian (2006 & 2010) the most valuable life lessons for me come from my 30+ years of experience in figure skating.
I’ve been coached by many of the world’s best coaches. I’ve experienced a range of coaching styles from abusive and constricting to absolutely transformative and life-saving.
I know what a great coach can do. They can serve as an honest mirror of your own goodness and worth.
That is what I aim to do or rather be as a coach.
It brings me so much joy to see the individual gifts of each skater, and to help skaters to remember, celebrate and share them.
I believe that outer success without inner freedom is not true success.
True success arises naturally when we live in alignment with our heart, body and mind.
