Suzanna started teaching yoga in 2009 in combination with sailing workshops in Greece, but her practice started a longtime before that. She started practicing yoga 20 years ago at the Iyengar Institute in Amsterdam and later she shifted her focus more towards deep therapeutic stretching. She is a Yin, Mindfulness and Hatha teacher. With these combinations her focus is on deep stretching combined with breathing to unblock physical imbalances. She enjoys giving lots of individual attention and corrections when needed. For her, Yoga is to be connected with your inner self, others and nature, to be open minded and not trapped in daily habits.
