Suraya Sam (Sue for short), co-creator of House of Ascend is a certified yoga, aroma, gong - practitioner, guide, teacher and facilitator with over 10 years of experience. She is a Yoga Alliance continuing education provider with more than 22,000 registered hours. Her teaching ranges from Ashtanga, Bhakti, Power, Aroma, Chakra, Nidra, Restorative, Gong, Pre-natal, Postpartum and Strala yoga to help guide one to understand the sacred science of yoga. She believes in the ability to heal oneself through the power of the mind, body and breath connection. This knowledge was passed down to her from generations of holistic practitioners in her family. Her self-realisation came in her early teens, guided by her mother who practices Sufism and Inca Mythology in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Over the years, her inspiration draws from her fellow mentors - Amber Sawyer of HOM Yoga, Anodea Judith of Sacred Centers, Mehtab & Laura Benton of Yogi Mehtab, Martha Collard of Red Doors, Ed Dailey of Young Living, Alex Young of Crystal Tones, Tara Stiles of Strala Yoga, and Chaitanya Nitai Das of Inbound School of Yoga, now Bhakti Yoga School.
Suraya Sam is currently studying under Paul Grilley's Yin Yoga: The Functional Approach. This in-depth training program synthesises Paul’s work in Yoga Anatomy and Yin Yoga into a profoundly logical and illuminating approach to the practice of yoga asana.
