Yvonne Suzuki Licopoli

"Founder, Teacher, E-RYT 500, YACEP, Dharma Yoga, Advanced Vinyasa"

Yvonne began studying yoga and became a vegetarian in 2002 as a means of achieving optimal health and wellbeing. After having studied with world renowned teachers, Yvonne met her guru, Sri Dharma Mittra in 2007, who remains her most influential teacher.

 

She completed her first yoga teacher training at YogaWorks in 2007, followed by Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson. She completed the 500 hour (2010) and 800 hour (2013) Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with Dharma Mittra. She continues to study regularly with her mentor, Andrei Ram Om.

 

Yvonne is certified in Thai Yoga through Lotus Palm Institute in Montreal, and studied Gong Yoga of Holistic Resonance with Grand Gong Master, Don Conreaux. She continues to study sound healing with her mentors, Ayi Wong and Micheal Mayzel of Shanti Sounds, Costa Rica.

 

She completed the Plant Based Nutrition Certificate Program of T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies in 2017.

 

Yvonne’s classes are a challenging breath aligned flow of classical asana (postures), sequenced in a manner to gently open the body, intensify healing prana (life force, energy), release blockages (emotional and physical), leading to increased strength and flexibility. Modifications for most postures are offered, as well as invitations to move into more advanced variations.

 

Yoga is a way of life. It is Yvonne’s belief that to achieve yoga, as with achieving success in anything, practice and self study must be an immutable priority.
