“Susana, in no uncertain terms, helped me to change my life. I was super nervous to start yoga and just happened upon one of her classes. She immediately helped me to feel comfortable with her easy going and loving acceptance. I kept going to her classes and soon found that I could do yoga and bring what I learned on the mat into other parts of life. Yoga gave me the endurance to start running, it helps me have more patience with my son, and it reminds me also to take time for myself and love myself. I love one of the things Susana sometimes says in class...”There is no yoga perfect, only yoga practice.” I don’t have to be perfect. Wherever I am is exactly where I need to be. Susana helped me to learn that and I will be forever grateful to her.”

“On the first night of training I knew I had made the right decision to enroll. It was an expansive and beautiful experience to grow and learn alongside other passionate yogis. By diving into the teachings of yoga, I not only grew in my physical practice but gained a deeper love and appreciation for the science and art that yoga is. Susana is a compassionate and enlightened teacher that gently pushed us all to be better than we were the day before. She offered a unique and special piece to the training by focusing some time on Reiki energy healing. All of us became Reiki healers and it has helped me to be more grateful, balanced and aware of my surroundings. Taking time to truly care for ourselves and those around us was an integral part of the training and something that I still practice. I am a better person than I was before embarking on this journey and I am so grateful for that.”

“I met amazing people and have maintained connections with them since the training ended. I loved how unique the program was, especially because it including the Reiki attunement. The teachers and program guide went above and beyond to help their students. Thank you Susana! Even though I had a lot of other obligations such as school and work, the training was flexible and provided the students with worksheets to review what we missed. I loved Julie’s Meditations and learning about Chakras and Asana.
Having lots of guest speakers gave us more insight! Having self-care “omwork” helped me take care of myself and love myself. I left the training loving who I am. My self-esteem was amazing, and my friends and family noticed that. If I could do the training over again, I would do it in a heartbeat. There is soo much to learn and I continue to grow in yoga. This training helped me understand and accept myself and others. I love yoga a million times more than I did before I started the training. So thank you Urban Yogi for offering the Teacher Within!”
