BACKGROUND

I was born in Tampere, Finland in 1993.
I grew up learning gymnastics from age 4.
After 6 years of Artistic Gymnastic training and 6 years of Aesthetic Group Gymnastics I joined the Sorin Sirkus youth circus.
Through Sorin Sirkus I learned many circus disciplines but more importantly, I fell in love with the skills of handstand, contortion and aerial hoop. I was part of the Sorin Sirkus performing group from 2009-2012.
In 2010 I started training with my duo partner, Milla Peijari, in Sorin Sirkus as a contortion and aerial hoop duo. We participated in Finland's got Talent in 2012 and we made it to the finals. Since then we started performing professionally around Finland and abroad as Duo Minja.
Along with duo I also trained a lot of other disciplines as a soloist.
As my career evolved, I began learning even more disciplines.
Since 2013 I have been performing with many different skills in many different shows all around the world. My plan is to keep on learning new skills and disciplines to make myself even more versatile.

Because of my long gymnastics background I have found a beautiful way to combine power demanding tricks with flexibility and my own strong personality.
Smooth movements, strong stage presence, fleixibility and technique; this is me!
