Susana Jones, Urban Yogi
Spirituality and teaching both run in my family. I remember going on solo journeys to the edge of the schoolyard to lie on my back and "be with the sky." All the things that lit me up as a kid make sense, now that I'm making good use of them.
I began practicing Yoga while attending the University of Colorado. Upon graduating, I took my budding Yoga practice with me on world travels. No matter where I was in the world, the sense of belonging that I felt on the yoga mat yoked my heart to this practice for life.
Back in my hometown of San Diego, the words of my first Yoga teachers echoed the Science of Mind philosophy of my upbringing, which is ultimately rooted in the vedic influence that brought yoga to the west. Curiosity led me to 200 hour training with CorePower Yoga in 2009. They taught me principles of postural alignment, fluid movement and yogic philosophy that served as my springboard for continued study and teaching.
I’ve taught Yoga in San Diego since 2009 and have enjoyed a multifaceted career as a Yoga studio owner, teacher-trainer, and now a Yoga Therapist in the making, thanks to The Soul of Yoga in Encinitas. Along the way, I have learned from true teachers, incredible business owners, wonderful students and grateful clients.
I’m endlessly grateful to be fulfilling my dharma through Urban Yogi, and I look forward to all the discoveries and connections to come. I dedicate this work to collective harmony and to the Source of all that is dear to us.
