Meet Suraya

Suraya Sam is the co-creator for House of Ascend, a concept born from her vision quest with Huachuma Ceremony alongside her family of Huachumeros in the Sacred Valley of Peru in 2017. She currently resides in Bergen, Norway and is a certified Educator, Trainer and Facilitator with over 13 years of experience in Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama, Gong Meditation, Gong Nidra and Aromatherapy. Suraya is also a Yoga Alliance continuing education provider with more than 27,000 registered hours. Her teaching ranges from various Yoga and Meditation practices to help guide One to understand the Sacred Science of Yoga and Meditation. She believes in the ability to Master and be in harmony with the layers of Oneself through the power of the Mind, Body and Breath connection. She also augments elemental tools such as Mantras, Therapeutic Musical Instruments, Therapeutic Essential Oils, Botanical Flower Baths & Showers, Botanical Essences, Herbal Elixirs, and Sacred Smoke as part of her bespoke offerings. This wisdom and knowledge was passed down to her from generations of holistic practitioners in her family. Her Dharma is guided by her mother who practices Sufism, Pachamama and Huachuma Plant Medicine Ceremonial Journey in the Sacred Valley of Peru.
