" Yoga is for everyone, no matter what age, ability or level of fitness.
My aim is to help students find the way of doing yoga asana & meditation that is right for them. When to be more active and how to slow down, releasing and opening the body and letting go. I often encourage the use of yoga props, in order that good alignment is maintained and the full benefit of the asana experienced. The result of this practice is a greater sense of balance, better relaxation and a lightness that follows on from a joyous participation in Yoga."
Wellness treatments and massage for women.
3 levels of Reiki practitioner training provided.

Thanks for being my yoga guru Susan!

I attended Susan's yoga course in Dahab, Egypt, and enjoyed this so much that I booked to attend a yoga holiday in Tuscany, Italy! Her teaching is inspiring, structured and "feeds" body, mind and soul! She is caring, but also quite directive, so enabled me to have the confidence to try some new poses which even surprised me! The holiday also included time to visit local features and the food was wonderful! Thanks so much, and I look forwards to attending more yoga with you! All the best from Aminah.

Italian retreat

I spent a wonderful week in Italy on a group retreat with Susan in a stunning setting. As she bases a lot of her practice on Iyengar she can be relied upon for clear precise instructions, adjustments, demonstrations and above all safety. No one is going to be pushed into trying postures that are way beyond their capability. I have a number of physical issues and Sue obviously had a lot of experience and knowledge to adjust my practice accordingly. I've done yoga with a number of practitioners of the years and would rate Sue as one of the best I've come across. She is also very caring and the spiritual side of yoga also plays a big part. I highly recommend her.

A yoga treat in Nuweiba, Sinai Penninsula

A beautiful, very well equipped yoga studio in an idyllic beach-front setting. I spent a wonderful few days in Nuweiba, practicing yoga with Susan mornings and early evening. Susan is an excellent and highly experienced yoga teacher. When she lived in London, I attended her classes for many years. Unfortunately when I arrived at her studio on Fayrouz beach, I was practically bent double having pulled a muscle in my back! After just two yoga sessions with Susan I was significantly better and by the time I left, I had pretty much fully recovered. With classes tailored to meet your needs not to mention the delicious lunches, I recommend very highly.

Amazing teacher!

Susan is so wonderful and relaxed. Her classes are a joy, and she is flexible and makes everyone enjoy their own practise in spite of different levels. She is a very inspiring woman and has her very own unique style, and she encourages you to find your own. I found the joy in yoga in her classes and of course also enjoyed the benefits in the body, amazing how quickly I felt a change. Thank you Susan!

I look forward to my next intensive yoga week with Susan either in her beautiful studio or elsewhere. Don't hesitate to work with this excellent teacher.

Susan is a wonderful teacher

My first ever experience of yoga was about 13 years ago in a Friday evening class which Susan ran. I loved it and still remember the class. For many years I regularly attended Susan's classes. Susan is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled teacher and I feel lucky that she was my introduction to yoga. I have nearly completed my 200hrs yoga teacher's training and during my practical training I constantly drew on the many yoga skills which Susan passed on. Susan's teaching is a major influence in my own yoga practice today. Thank you Susan.

As a novice to yoga practice, it's imperative that you find the right Class to begin with BUT, even more important, is the teacher. I was so incredibly lucky to have found a teacher like Susan on my first visit. What I found even more astonishing, other than the wonderful well-being feeling I experienced both during and after her Classes, was that she almost seemed to be a mind reader?! Whenever she introduced a new posture, she explained the correct way to hold the pose and exactly it's origins and benefits---- amazing!! Susan , I miss your classes in London and am sure ,at some stage, I will finally make it over to your Yoga Retreat in Egypt...... Love and Light Eileen Assouline

One of my favourite yoga teachers

I have known Susan Metwali from when she first began to train as a yoga teacher and seen her develop into one of the best yoga teachers I have come across.

During classes she creates an atmosphere of calm concentration and proceeds to teach with a light touch and warm encouragement. I have been to many of her classes and seen that she has a way of getting the best from her students and her students follow her classes for this very reason. She is patient, kind and understanding and I know that other students of hers have the same opinion.
