Susan Kniseley-Foy E-RYT200/RYT500/YACEP -
Susan discovered yoga in 2001 and carried this gift with her through her life teaching abroad in Taiwan, Korea and Qatar during which she immersed herself in training in Anusara and Ashtanga/Vinyasa Flow. She was amazed at yoga’s ability to calm the restless mind and create community, even in foreign lands. Susan’s teaching style is a mixture of energy, encouragement, lightheartedness and creativity. She brings lessons from these different yogic lineages with her; thoughtful assists from Ashtanga, alignment awareness from Anusara and offers a breath-connected Vinyasa flow. She strives to engage and empower her students and to help them find illumination in their practice in whatever way rings true for them. She considers yoga to be a constant lesson in “how to”…..everything…and finds it to be an essential pleasure and honor to keep on learning. On an extra special note, Susan is half Panamanian and fell madly in love with Cambutal as a child. Decades later, as a certified yoga teacher looking for yoga in Panama, she stumbled upon Sansara. Kismet, indeed.
