 This lecture, with some practical explorations, will look at how hypermobility affects the body and mind, how to recognise it and how to work with it in students and in our own bodies. Today’s culture tends to see yoga largely as a tool to make us more flexible and classes often attract people who possess greater than average flexibility. Recent research on fascia and stretching is challenging traditional ideas of what is healthy and what leads to ease of movement. Hypermobility might look like an advantage for yoga practice, but needs to be addressed with knowledge and awareness so it does not lead to pain and injury.


Susanne’s early yoga background was in Astanga Vinyasa yoga, which she began to practise in
 1991 with the late Derek Ireland. Other important influences include the release-based work of Vanda Scaravelli, various somatic practices, and the rhythmic and energetic qualities of gyrokinesis and dance. She teaches vinyasa flow at The Life Centre, somatics at London Contemporary School of Dance, as well as experiential anatomy and sequencing on the Yogacampus Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy courses. Whilst respecting the unique characteristics of these disciplines, Susanne’s approach to teaching has evolved from an awareness of the elements that are fundamental to all movements.
