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 L4 Yoga Teaching Diploma at CamYoga. In addition I am a trainee at the DeRose Method school in  London.

In the last two 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 green belt) which I was introduced to through Master Ricardo Tomasio. Martial Arts is great to boost the self-confidence,  and to learn how to manage the feelings of  fear, anger and frustration.

  • Currently doing the L4 Yoga Teaching Diploma at Camyoga
  • Weekend Intensive with Jock Orton – Alignment in Ashtanga Yoga – Cambridge

I tried Martial Art when I was 16 through a school friend which was the son of the Martial Arts Master. I loved the class straight away and felt so connected with the practice that I started  having classes every day and after a while I decided to do an intensive course to become a Martial Arts instructor (grey belt). My journey to black belt was a long and difficult one, but it was worth it!

I have been doing Martial Art for over 10 years. I am now a 2nd degree black belt in Pa-Kua Martial Art and grey belt (instructor) in Edge Weapons and Tai-Chi and a black belt in Wushu Kung Fu.

I continue furthering my knowledge in Martial Arts and Tai-Chi by regularly attending courses and workshops, and I am currently training to receive the 3rd degree in Martial Arts.

I was introduced to Ashtanga yoga and Acroyoga through Susana Tomasio.
