Surya Shivjot

About The Teacher

Surya Shivjot embraces the very qualities that allow us to embody yoga to the fullest. Change is constant – in all levels of life, and she supports practise that expands our boundaries, transforms perspectives and creates positive change.

Surya is an international Yoga Teacher in Hatha, Kundalini and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (RYT700), Yoga Teacher Trainer, Somatic Movement Educator (MA, SME) and Dancer, who grew up in Lapland, Finland. Her personal devotion to Somatic Movement, Vipassana Meditation and Kundalini Yoga comes through from her teachings and she seeks ways to help her students to find deeper connection to the subtle bodies and sensory awareness, which she sees as a doorway for higher forms of transformation and awakening. Her passion for ancient yogic science led her to study across India, where she felt blessed to study under Indian yogis and Spiritual Masters. She is inspired to share the practises and inner work of self-inquiry that have had profound effects in her own life, in which the body-mind is finally free to ungrip and relax into ease and joy.

Surya imparts her passion for holistic wellbeing and ancient yoga philosophy and in her teachings, inspiring students to find their fullest potential and ability to gain self responsibility – from bodily health to self transformation. Exploration of embodied mindfulness guides the students to awaken the inner alignment of creativity and intuitivity, changing our relationship to how we relate to the world with more compassionate and authentic way. Happiness is our birthright and no matter what our background, age, state of health, or religion is, we are capable of finding our innate ability to shine our light and become our dream. Returning to the mysterious union with the body, consciousness and soul.
