Marjaana Makela

Marjaana is a yoga teacher from Finland. She has been a regular visitor of the magical village of Molyvos since 1989. Nowadays she also lives part of the year here. Marjaana has been teaching yoga nearly twenty years and has several yoga teacher trainings from different traditions of yoga. She loves to combine and mix it all by weaving the old with the new. "It's my passion to teach yoga. The best part of it still after all these years is to see, how the students grow and start to glow! How this ancient tradition of yoga can be a tool and help people to live their lives in a more uplifting heartful way. Because it's all about the heart!" “And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
