I am a latecomer to yoga, I never really found my place anywhere, or really hit my stride. I figured it was just something effortless waifs did between Goop juice cleanses. But at Jiva the teachers have been incredibly welcoming, the atmosphere has been warm and patient and I’m learning that yoga is for all bodies, ages and levels of skill. Couldn’t recommend it more. - Nanna Árnadóttir

200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Saigon Vietnam - Amazing program, excellent teachers, beautiful classmates, and an absolutely fantastic experience- Honestly the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, I’d recommend this program to anyone. I learned so much from Suzanne- it was the perfect beginning to a new path. ~Sarah M Patterson, USA
I invited Suzanne to run her Kids Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 at my school. She gave us inspiration as well as practical teaching ideas and cues. I would recommend Suzanne to any organisation wanting to increase their understanding of yoga, as well as positive, mindful practices. ~ Andrew Dutton, UNIS
A life-changing experience! ~ Agnes, Hungary
