Hi there, I’m Vivi!
I’m a transformation mentor, writer, and yoga enthusiast.
My life’s purpose is empowering spiritually curious women to be and do whatever the hell they want to. I’m here to share my journey and truth with you — unapologetically, with a touch of sarcasm and a lot of heart. I want to help you grow and follow your soul’s desire, not anybody else’s rules.
In this space we talk a lot about personal growth and yoga. I especially love teaching women to start and build their own home yoga practices. Mine has been a life saver!
I’m a feminist, I speak five languages, and I’m a 3 time university drop out. I love thunderstorms, my favorite season is autumn, and I’m happiest on rainy days with an incredible book and a good cup of coffee.
I believe that you can be and do whatever you want to.
I believe you are worthy of everything you desire.
I believe you are braver than you give yourself credit for.
And I believe you’re fucking good enough.
You don’t have to ask for anyone’s permission to do the things that set your soul on fire.
You don’t owe anyone anything. This is your goddamn life.
And you most certainly don’t have to follow anyone else’s rules.
You make the rules.
You create the life that you want to live.
And you’re exactly where you need to be right now.
I’ve always felt out of place, especially when it comes to the country I was born in, the tiny, frigid Finland. I’ve had my escape route planned since I was 10! At 19 I moved to England to study at a university, but quickly dropped out because it turned out that business management was really boring.
A couple of years later, I moved to Holland to pursue another program at a university, but after about a year I dropped out of there too. This was actually my third time failing my educational endeavors, and you can read more about that in this post.
I’ve sashayed in and out of depression since I was a teenager.
2 years ago I found myself swimming in some pretty dark waters. I was alone abroad and so deep in depression I though it might actually be the end of the road for me.
Then my roommate kicked me out for being ‘too quiet’.
A lot of other stuff was going on, too.
I felt like all the walls were collapsing down on me, so I packed my bags, dropped out of yet another University, burned a whole new set of bridges, and resentfully moved back to the country where I had always felt like an outsider.
I know, I know, it sounds like a cliche — but yoga helped me claw myself out of the void of darkness. I have been practicing yoga since 2014 and it’s a big part of why I’m still here rocking and rolling, focused on my mission, determined to shine my light on every woman who needs it.
Books helped, too. Embracing my spiritual side was another factor.
Time helped the most. Accepting that I had to take as much time as I needed to heal.
Today, I’m focused on my life’s purpose by helping you feel empowered. Brave. Ready to take action.
I’m here to help you become your best fucking self. The person you were always meant to be.
You know you were meant for something more. Something better.
And you are not crazy, greedy, or unrealistic for wanting it. All your desires were given to you because you were meant to have them. You were meant to light this whole fucking world on fire.
If you resonate with my message and feel a connection to my voice and energy, I’d love to have you here. My space is for the woman who’s ready to ask for support and willing to be guided.
If that’s you, you can join my exclusive List and receive a weekly letter delivered straight to your inbox.
I hope to see you there.
I have massive faith in you.
About the author
Fun fact — my Finnish name is actually spelled Viivi. With two i’s. I’ve spent a few years in the English-speaking world and there it always turns into Vivi. I figured I’d embrace it as a pen name of sorts on my little corner of the internet!
I’m a dedicated yogi, feminist, and ice-cream adventurer in search for inner peace and a life filled with purpose, joy, and fun. I’ve been practicing yoga at home for nearly 4 years and used it to successfully manage my depression.
I’m still looking for a country to call my own and I can’t wait to get on the road again. Soon. It will be soon.
Don’t worry, I’ll take you along for the ride.
