Suraya is a Yoga Teacher, Dance & Drama Educator, MFT, Actress, Registered Drama Therapist and Mama who has traveled and trained in yoga and the arts locally and internationally. 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 ongoing 5 Rhythms dance practice, Suraya’s teaching style is creative and eclectic, but at the foundation of all of her classes is an emphasis on deep listening to the body, the breath and the heart. Look out: Suraya is a fan of the Divine Trickster, and she may just invite you to burst into song or to invoke your inner 3-year-old out to play while trying out a new asana.
Suraya currently teaches weekly classes at Yoga Mountain in Fairfax, CA.
