Niina M. K. Strobel
"Anything Is Possible" has always been Niina's motto and it has ensured that she has always made an attempt to live life to the fullest. Niina was born in Finland, raised in Sweden, and left to explore the world at 20. After some years of travelling and working in Europe and South America, she went back to complete higher education in England and started her career in British and European politics.
During her time in politics she held various positions and worked daily with local politicians, Government Ministers and EU Parliamentarians. Niina was appointed to several positions, including by 2 Prime Ministers of UK and one of them was as as Secretary of Foreign Affairs Forum of Candidates and the other as Co-ordinator for the Women2Win, which entailed training Women Parliamentary Candidates in communicative skills, media and campaigning.
For many years Niina's life was nothing but politics, yet at the height of her career, she knew it was time to take a different direction. Having worked in a highly competitive and stressful environment for many years, the stress had taken its toll on her private life and her health. Niina knew it was time to let go and find a different path. In April 2013, when her family decided to move to Indonesia, she knew that it was the right time to embrace changes. By this time, she had already started practising meditation and studying Mindfulness Treatments and Therapy.
Niina- "Being passionate about living life to the full, it is important to understand that - we cannot do that if our mind is mindless and full of stress, anxiety, sadness, depression and/or loneliness, from which many people suffer today. The power and growth is rooted within ourselves. Today, my focus is to use my own experiences to support others, and to train people how they can live a balanced life, no matter what job, background, culture, education, religion or sexuality they are or come from. My personal pride and joy is too see that Soul & Spirit Spa is not only a company that provides health benefits and services but it has grown into a wonderful, global, supportive Community of like minded people. Soul & Spirit Spa has members from every continent, from all different cultural and religious backgrounds. Our motto is- we are in this together. ''
Today, Niina continue her own training in Mindfulness and Meditation within the Tibetan Buddhist Mahayana context in the Kopan Monastery, she is a member of the FPMT - Foundation of the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition, and the FSS (Foundation of Shamanic Studies) in Asia. Niina is a frequent visitor to Dharma Talks, Meditation, Mindfulness, Tai Chi/ Qigong and other holistic retreats all around the world and works in partnership with other established local wellness businesses, naturopaths, nutritionist, the yoga community and promotes local community participation.
"Compassion, forgiveness, faith, trust, love, and the power of self worth, not only has the power to just change one person's life, but the world entirely."
