Suzana grew up in Brazil being spiritually fed by a family that combined a great variety of practices which aid self-knowledge: Christian Mysticism, Japanese Zen, Jungian Psychology and Hypnotherapy. Suzana has been greatly inspired by the search for our true selves since a very young age. She needed only two yoga classes to realise that being truly happy is actually possible! From that moment onwards Suzana committed herself fully to this sacred practice. She took a year’s YTTC in Hatha Yoga (Kaivalyadhama Associated Institute) to improve her own practice and to embrace yoga as a spiritual path and a life-changing experience. Yoga soon taught her how our whole way of seeing reality and living in this world can become a freer and easier experience. Since then philosophy, psychology, mythology and theology have strongly inspired her growth in self-knowledge, guiding her towards other powerful yoga trainings such as an Iyengar teacher training and Vinyasa Flow teacher training.
Suzana has a deep desire to help people receive the kind of life-changing experience she herself has experienced through the practice of yoga. Yoga is the easiest and the most spontaneous way for her to give and receive happiness and she has been teaching at yoga trainings in India for more than 3 years now. Suzana has a talent for turning complicated subjects like Yogic Philosophy into easily understood teachings that combine the perspectives of both East and West. She has taught students from very different cultures and backgrounds, from youngsters to seniors, while at the same time continuously studying with known yogis inside and outside India. She is a warm-hearted teacher and a bridge between Western and Indian culture. She helps her students explore various teaching and learning techniques, always taking inspiration from Mother India and adapting it to her students’ needs, their own individuality and their future role as international yoga teachers.
