Welcome. I’m glad you’re here.
Hi, I’m Susanne.
I’m an Oxford, UK - based experienced yoga teacher. I trained as a vinyasa and hot power yoga teacher at YogaVenue, Oxford’s premier and first purpose-built yoga studio. I teach popular vinyasa and hot power yoga classes, as well as private yoga lessons.
My teaching focuses on slow, steady and precise movements. In each class, subtle aspects, such as muscular actions and control in shapes shape is taught by exploring the balance of effort and ease needed. Expect to work towards smooth and effortless-looking transitions between postures. I take great care in the sequencing of my classes to ensure safety and a natural progression towards more challenging postures.
I'm interested in all things related to teaching, learning and yoga. I want to find more intuitive approaches to learning and successful performance. A PhD in Educational Psychology has taught me a lot about best practices in teaching and learning. It all comes down to the quality of the teaching and the passion of the teacher.
I teach yoga with a passion because it allows me to apply all these concepts every day. Every day I can see how my teaching helps people learn new and more effortless ways of moving, sitting and standing. Yes, people have to work to develop muscle strength and flexibility. This involves sweat and determination to an extent but never feels like hard work. Think of it as a playful and creative dance on your mat. Don’t worry, it’s mostly a dance to the beat of your own drum. Along the way you’ll laugh, fall out of postures, have fun and learn lots of exciting new things about the body.
