Susan was introduced to yoga in the late 1970s in Canada, accompanying her mother to hatha yoga classes, and she maintained a home practice off and on over the next twenty years. In 1998 she moved to London and, after fully exploring the wide variety of yoga classes on offer, became committed to an ashtanga Mysore-style practice in the tradition of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She has since completed the Primary and Intermediate series and is working through the Advanced A series with her teachers Hamish Hendry in London and R Sharath Jois in Mysore, India.
In 2011 Susan began making regular trips to Mysore to study with Sharath at the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI), and in 2014 she received Level 2 Authorisation, allowing her to teach the full Primary and Intermediate series.
Susan currently teaches the Morning Self Practice at Yoga Place E2.
