On Wednesday mornings Zodiak hosts a body maintenance morning class with choreographer and yoga teacher Kati Raatikainen and dancer Jonna Eiskonen intended especially for desk workers. Kati's classes are yoga-based body maintenance sessions while Jonna's classes are based on different variations of Pilates movements. The classes are not intended to turn the participants into yoga or Pilates masters but to help them maintain a healthy sense of well-being and full ability to work. No previous experience of yoga or Pilates is required.

A comfortable, flexible outfit is recommended. Exercise mats are available in the studio, but you can also bring your own mat.

Kati Raatikainen is a choreographer and a dance and yoga instructor. In her artistic work she focuses on helping to flesh out existing choreographic phenomena to performances. Choreography may occur in the movement and organisation of both human and non-human beings. She is currently studying seasonal yin as part of advanced-level yoga instructor training.

Jonna Eiskonen has graduated as a Master of Art (Dance) from the Helsinki Theatre Academy in 2002. Primarily working as a dancer today, Eiskonen has a long history in the teaching of dance: she has worked as a dance instructor teaching contemporary dance, jazz, step and body maintenance since 1999, and has conducted numerous workshops on different themes. As a director, she utilises her experience of body maintenance and somatic techniques to create innovative combinations of the elements.
