42 YOGA by Suze Male
Suze here. Bit about me. I am passionate about health and wellbeing. I have practised yoga since 2000 but it was only when dealing with the death of my mum that it became more central to my life. A search for a healing retreat led to teacher training with iFlow Yoga and I completed the 200-hour hatha vinyasa training. I have since completed an additional 300 hour yoga training in Rishikesh, India, which involved a big component of yoga therapy.
I am so happy to be able to offer affordable yoga classes to the community in the Reservoir area through 42 Yoga. It's been something I really wanted to do. I really believe yoga should be accessible to everybody and every body. Join me at a mindful yoga flow class or yin yoga class at 42 Yoga at Essence Centre of Natural Health in Keon Park, Reservoir.
I teach a mindful yoga flow class and yin yoga. The classes focus on the breath and alignment, mindfulness and creating calm, with spiritual and personal growth themes. I'm on my own journey of discovery and learning things about myself and about life, and these discoveries spill over into the classes. Join me at the Keon Park, Reservoir classes, or come along to one of the other regular public classes I teach in and around Melbourne.
The Benefits of Yoga
I am a huge fan of the enduring life benefits of yoga. It is key to mind and body wellness. It allows us to discover our true selves and connect to everyone else in a positive way, as well as develop a pervading sense of calm. I really believe regular practice has a positive impact on our experience of life. That's why I am keen to share these things with anyone willing to give it a try. It is a big privilege to be a conduit for other people to discover the life-enhancing benefits. I am grateful for the opportunity.
Why 42 Yoga?
For anyone curious, the name 42 Yoga is inspired by Douglas Adams and his book Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where he declares that 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. I'm a book lover and a lover of words. I have a writing background. I worked as a journalist for many years, more recently managed marketing and media for a regional library with 9 branches, and have even worked a stint in a bookstore. You may have experienced one of my book yoga sessions (Alice in Wonderland, Jane Austen, Hitchhiker's Guide anyone?!) Don't know what possesses me to combine yoga and books, but if you are one of the few people who have the same dual passions then you've come to the right place!
