'Yoga continually transforms my life into an ever unfolding, inspiring, creative and transformative journey, awakening my body mind and spirit in the light and the darkness'
Suzy has been practising yoga since 1992, and teaching since 2000. Initially she studied Iyengar, Sivananda and then discovered yoga inspired by Vanda Scaravelli. She has been training with her current teacher Diane Long for over 10 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 soul....and thorugh intimacy, honesty and connection I am able to feel more alive, free and truthful in each moment'
'Scaravelli inspired yoga' focuses on 'awakening the spine, releasing tension in the body to gravity through the breath, and creating lightness within.
When we practise yoga mindfully 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
