Susie started practising yoga in 2011 to improve a recurring back injury she sustained from a motorcycle accident. After attending a few classes, Susie began to feel the physical and mental benefits of practising yoga. Wanting to learn more, Susie enrolled on to the Foundation Course (Introduction to Yoga Levels I and II) at The Radiant Hand Academy of Yoga, which unleashed a passion for yoga.
Susie realised that yoga is not only a physical discipline, but also a deep spiritual one, which has motivated her to develop all aspects of yoga. Yoga has been fundamental in making positive changes in her life and has given her the confidence to grow and expand her physical and spiritual horizons. All this has inspired Susie to want to help others, and she is working towards completing her training as a Yoga Teacher with The Radiant Hand.
Tanya De Hoog
Tanya started attending classes with The Radiant Hand in 2012, after taking up yoga as a form of exercise in gyms and other yoga studios for several years prior. It was not until studying the Introduction to Yoga courses in 2012 and 2013, that she gained an understanding of the philosophy of yoga and this inspired her to integrate these lessons into her life and into her practice. These changes have evolved slowly over time and have provided more balance in all aspects of her life and provided her with a much healthier and happier perspective towards her professional life as a Structural Engineer.
Tanya looks forward to discovering her style and approach to teaching in the next phase of teacher training. She desires to teach as a way of giving back to others and sharing all the benefits that she has experienced.
