Susan Lodge began practising yoga in 1997 after the birth of her second child and immediately felt the benefits.
Increased physical strength and quiet composure supported her significantly in mothering three young children and working as a primary school teacher.
Susan's interest in yoga deepened and she studied with senior teachers in England and Spain before gaining two Yoga teaching qualifications: Yoga For Health Foundation Certificate (2004) and the British Wheel of Yoga Diploma (2009).
Her commitment to continued study and practise led her to Paul Harvey who had been a personal student of the Yoga master TKV Desikachar for 20 years. Susan is grateful to receive the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his teacher Sri Krishnamacharya from Paul and has been travelling regularly for personal lessons with him in the Cotswolds since 2014. The thoughtful and practical application of yoga practices within this tradition is her inspiration. A long term study of Patanjali's Yoga Sutra and a developing interest in sound and chanting are the current focus of her personal work.
Susan now teaches yoga full time and the quality and integrity of her teaching are well recognised across the North of England. She established yogaviveka.uk in 2014. Since then, a warm and welcoming community of students and yoga teachers trained by Susan has grown around the nourishing yoga practices being passed on to Susan through her teacher. Her greatest satisfaction comes from being able to share her knowledge and experience to support and guide students and student teachers towards understanding the yoga system so that they can in turn use it to support themselves.
'In the end you must become your own teacher.' TKV Desikachar
