'Yoga continually transforms my life into an ever unfolding, inspiring and creative journey. Allowing natural fluid movement to express itself through my body awakens my heart and soul with gratitude'
Suzy has been practising yoga since 1992, and teaching since 2000. Initially she studied Iyengar, Sivananda and then came to Scaravelli inspired yoga since 2000. Suzy has been training with her current teacher Diane Long for over 8 years (www.dianelongyoga.com) who was Vanda Scaravelli's main student for 23 years.
'Scaravelli inspired yoga allows me to be fully present with whatever is arising in my body, mind and spirit....and by being intimate, honest and connected to that I feel more alive, free and truthful in each moment'
This way of practising yoga focuses on the principles of being with the breath, releasing to gravity, creating space and awakening the spine. Exploring these within
traditional postures allows us to notice what is happening as we move moment to moment.
We start to feel and sense where we hold on, create tension and also where we are weak and avoid moving in areas of the body. If we stay present in our practise we can make wonderful deep discoveries, releasing held patterns of tension from the physical and emotional bodies. This allows the body's own intelligence to awaken.
'I wish to inspire and support each individual in helping them to find their own unique place in this world. By helping to show others a way of awakening the body and mind then their own soul can express itself truthfully and fully' - Suzy
