Hi, I’m Susanna Barkataki - A teacher, inclusivity promoter, and yoga culture advocate. I see a world where yoga unites us all and excludes no one… But that wasn’t always my understanding.
 
I’ve been practicing yoga for as long as I can remember. Rooted in my Indian and British background, it has helped me understand the world around me and how to live happily.
 
One day, while in child's pose, clarity struck! I had the insight that yoga is here for us to cultivate power and transcend our limitations, personally and socially. The way we do yoga often continues to create competition and separation with ourselves and others. Instead, original yoga exists as a way to connect us all - dissolving separation within and without.
 
I quickly decided that my passion was to help others bridge the gap between yoga as an exercise and yoga as a lifestyle... Because true yoga is more than just the poses. It’s an age-old practice that serves us all!
 
Today, I work to showcase yoga in action, spread the message of diversity and inclusion, and help people connect through yoga to live a happy, fulfilling life. And I’d love for you to join me in this mission!
 
We can lean on each other to use authentic yoga culture as a vessel for shaping change now. Together, I know we can live a more fulfilling life - physically and spiritually!

 
 

Yoga grows best with diversity and inclusion.

I'm writing a book and creating a course to honor the roots of yoga and help people be the inclusion they want to see.

Do you believe yoga is for everyone?

Let's help people see that.
