Her classes are challenging, inviting students into the deep sweetness of svadhyaya, or self-study. Her teaching is rooted in the South Indian Temple traditions and philosophies, and her spiritual home is the great Nataraja Temple of Chidambaram. She has taught internationally since 2002, and is E-RYT 500.Susanna writes for numerous publications, including The Huffington Post and Mantra Yoga + Health. She created the popular Writing Your Practice, which applies yoga philosophy and myth to the practice of writing. Her book will be published by Chronicle Books in Fall 2016.
