Suzana’s love for Yoga started in 1994 at her hometown Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Since then, she’s been dedicating herself to studying, traveling and learning from many different great teachers. Hence, she continues to increase her knowledge of the physical, therapeutic, energetic and philosophical aspects of yoga. Suzana travels to India regularly to deepen her understanding of the yogic traditions and styles. Suzana is a (RYT) Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher, certified Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yoga Sculpt, Meditation and Yin Yoga teacher, but humbly considers herself a student. In fact, she likes to share that, “Yoga is a lifestyle, a way of living and it’s immeasurable the benefits that it creates in the consciousness and soul, mind and body. It is a path that enlightens and revels our true nature. It teaches us to go through situations with grace and patience, being present and also connected, gifting us with physical and mental flexibility, hope, health, compassion, calmness, strength, inner peace, balance and sense of community. I believe that when we step on our yoga mats we are practicing love for ourselves and sharing that love and light to the Universe.” “Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.” – The Bhagavad Gita

Women’s Yoga classes with Amy Harris
Women’s Yoga is soft and intuitive. It guides us through gentle yet powerful movements that help us soften and center. Classes are combined with healing touch, meditation and poetry to nourish both body and spirit.
We focus on feminine, circular movements as we breathe and ease into our core. We anchor our yoga in our wombs and start our movements with a sense of groundedness and center. This is a practice that draws inspiration from yoga, dance and ancient female knowledge to create something truly nourishing.
Every class is a little different. Sometimes we share a detoxifying drink, sometimes we receive a bit of massage or healing touch, and sometimes we let poetry and mantras guide our meditation deeper.
