Hello, my name’s Wambui (She/Her/Hers). I teach embodied healing practices in the lineage of Ashtanga Yoga. I’m also a massage therapist and meditation advocate.
I strive to share what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle full of natural wellbeing with you, a busy, modern person with responsibilities, dreams and aspirations: the most fundamental one being the wish to be happy.
I’m an introvert and an empath working at the intersection of social action and wellness where I ask questions like, “Who isn’t in healing spaces? Are these spaces safe and healing for all? How are we using yoga as a tool for collective liberation?”
Wambui started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2008 and began assisting Petri Räisänen, who is also her husband, in 2010. She received her Chavutti Thirumal massage training in 2013 from Helen Noakes and Indian head massage training from Terry Thomas in 2019. Wambui combines various healing modalities into her treatments, such as Finnish jäsenkorjaus (bone setting), fascial release, breath work to create customised and highly individualised healing sessions for the client.
