Susan de Almeida Ferreira

Born on Isle of Bute, Scotland. At aged 8 we moved to South Africa to live and returned to Scotland when I was 18. I started my working life in a legal office where I progressed from office junior to paralegal over 14years. I was fortunate to be working for a lovely lady who introduced me to reiki around 2004 and at the same time I discovered yoga. I've always had a strong spiritual connection but these practices sparked the flame. As yoga wasn't readily available on the Isle of Bute I practiced from home drifting in and out over the years . I completed a massage NVQ3 training around 2013. It was in 2014 when I lost my mum to cancer that I realised how short life was and made the life changing decision to sell off my belongings, quit my job and go travelling and fulfil my dream of going on a yoga retreat or training. I booked a training for May 2015 and set off on my journey. I knew when I was immersed on my training that this was the path that I was meant to follow and wanted to continue on my journey of yoga and healing as a holistic therapist. I returned to Oban after my travels which has been my home for nearly 8 years. I set up SuAsana Yoga in  October 2015 and have been running classes, workshops and retreats in and around Argyll & Bute over the last 4 years. I continue to learn and grow and will be starting my journey with Ayurveda in September this year.
