'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 15 years www.dianelongyoga.com who was Vanda main student.
Vanda discovered that when we work with certain principles in our yoga practise there is freedom of the body, mind and soul. She believed that when we connect to gravity and allow tension to be released, the spine becomes alive, and as the breath exhales and moves upwards it creates a wave like motion within the spine and surrounding tissues. This leads to a sense or wholeness and 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
