Surya Shivjot embraces the very qualities that allow us to embody yoga to the fullest. Change is constant – at all levels of life – and she supports a practice that expands our boundaries, transforms perspectives, and creates positive change. Surya is an international Yoga Teacher in Hatha, Kundalini, and Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga (RYT700), Yoga Teacher Trainer, Somatic Movement Educator (MA, SME), and Dancer, who grew up in Lapland, Finland.
Her personal devotion to Somatic Movement, Vipassana Meditation, and Kundalini Yoga comes through her teachings. She seeks ways to help her students to find a deeper connection to the subtle bodies and sensory awareness, which she sees as a doorway for higher forms of transformation and awakening. Her passion for ancient yogic science led her to study across India, where she felt blessed to study under Indian yogis and Spiritual Masters. She is inspired to share the practices and inner work of self-inquiry that have had profound effects on her own life, in which the body-mind is finally free to let go and relax into ease and joy.
Surya imparts her passion for holistic well-being and ancient yoga philosophy in her teachings, inspiring students to find their fullest potential and ability to gain self-responsibility – from bodily health to self-transformation. Exploration of embodied mindfulness guides the students to awaken the inner alignment of creativity and intuition, changing our relationship to how we relate to the world in a more compassionate and authentic way.
Happiness is our birthright and no matter what our background, age, state of health, or religion is, we are capable of finding our innate ability to shine our light and become our dream. Returning to the mysterious union with the body, consciousness, and soul.
