Susanne Lahusen’s early yoga background was in Astanga Vinyasa yoga, which she began to practise in 1991 with the late Derek Ireland. Since then, Susanne has studied with many renowned teachers. Richard Freeman, in particular, has had a strong effect on her own practice and approach to teaching yoga. Other important influences include the release based work of Vanda Scaravelli, Alexander’s approach and alignment principles, and the rhythmic and energetic qualities of gyrokinesis and dance.
Susanne holds a Yogacampus level 2 teaching qualification accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. She also has a BEd in Movement Studies and Sports Science, an MA in Dance, and certification in Pilates, gyrotonic, gyrokinesis and Alexander. She has attended many anatomy courses with Tom Myers, James Earl, Gary Carter and Doug Keller on movement, yoga and myofascial work. Susanne previously ran a Pilates Foundation teacher training course at The Place and, for many years, has been teaching experiential anatomy and somatics at The Place and at Trinity Laban. She teaches experiential anatomy and sequencing on the Yogacampus Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy Diploma courses.
Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of the various disciplines which she has studied, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movement.http://www.susannelahusen.com
"I would like Lizzie and Adelene to know that this was a very informative weekend and that they structured the days very well. I liked the way in which when we worked in pairs we had a quiet brainstorm session while we were waiting our turn. They set a timer so we all had time to enjoy the pose and to also learn about the pose and its benefits too." Student on Goddesses at Rest: Restorative yoga to support the sacred feminine, June 2016
