Suraya has been practicing yoga for 25 years and teaching for 17 years. As a Yoga Teacher, Registered Expressive Arts Therapist, Registered Drama Therapist and Mama, she has traveled and trained in yoga and the arts locally and internationally, and is devoted to bringing the wisdom teachings of yoga into everyday life. Suraya’s love affair with yoga began in her early twenties when she healed herself from a severe chronic back injury through yoga and the expressive arts. Since then, Suraya has come to see yoga as an art: a form of deep play that re-connects us with the stream of wellness and vitality that are our birthright. Inspired by a wide tribe of teachers and trainings, including the swamis at her first Sivananda Yoga Teacher Training in India, an Anusara Yoga Immersion with Katchie Ananda, an apprenticeship with David Moreno, Jane Austin's Perinatal Yoga Teacher Training, and an advanced yoga teacher training with Nubia Teixeira, Suraya’s teaching style is gentle, creative and eclectic. At the foundation of all of her classes is an emphasis on deep listening to the body, the breath and the heart. Suraya is currently available for private yoga sessions with individuals or groups, and she currently has a YouTube channel with a collection of videos that include more traditional mixed-level yoga flow practices with other videos that blend yoga, creative writing and the expressive arts.

If you wish, you can extend the practice by engaging in creative writing or journaling after finishing your asana practice. Enjoy!
This 30 minute practice is part of a 10 video series which focuses on the 10 ethical principles of yoga, also known as the Yamas and Niyamas. In this flow, we explore Ishwari Pranidana, or "Surrender to the Divine" as a key ongoing practice we can bring to our lives, both on and off the mat. What does offering our efforts to that which is most important to us, whether in our yoga practice or in anything we do, do for us in our lives? You are inviting to explore for yourself...
