IMG_1754About Susana 

I have always been an active person and always enjoyed exercise and eating healthy. Naively, I was one of those people that used to think that Yoga was for older and less active people. One day, in January 2010 I looked at the timetable of the sports centre I used to go to and saw this “Ashtanga Yoga” class for advanced.. Moved by curiosity I decided to give it a try and I loved it. It was not what  I thought it was. The class was exciting, challenging and relaxing at the same time. I didn’t know that was possible. I was also very surprised that the yoga teacher was so fit! So I started attending the Ashtanga yoga classes. I must say that at first I joined the classes only because of the physical practice but gradually I was moved by the spiritual side that the practice gives. I started feeling calmer, happier and less stressed. And this was the beginning of my yoga journey!  My first yoga teacher was Fay Lochore and I was inspired and motivated by her. Since then I have been training with Howard Daly, Mark Stevens, Emma Lindsay, Nova Milesko, Sonia Ferreira and  Kino MacGregor (just to name a few).

In 2013, I decided to further my knowledge of yoga by doing a teaching training course. I am proud that I did this course with my very first instructor Fay and Garry Sherwin. I learned most of my strength postures from Garry Sherwin’s practice. I am currently doing the 500-hour Yoga Teaching Diploma at CamYoga. In addition I am a trainee at the DeRose Method school in  London.

In the last four years I started practicing Acroyoga and Acrobatics. Ever since I was a child I love doing arm balances and I basically love all the inversions and challenging postures.

In my spare time I also practice Martial Arts (currently a grey belt  instructor). Martial Arts is great to boost the self-confidence,  and to learn how to manage the feelings of  fear, anger and frustration.
