A warm welcome to you! 

 My name is Susan Elizabeth. 


I am dedicated yoga teacher E-RYT500


Originally from North Dakota, USA, I moved to Norway in 2004. 

I am based in Porsgrunn with my loving husband, 3 lovely children and dog Bruno.  

Join me for yoga at my home studio Kosha Yoga Shala in Porsgrunn, where I teach restorative yoga for burnout, yoga for menopause, among other practices like Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga and meditation. My a holistic approach to body-mind-soul, creates a nurturing space for students to cultivate a sense of calm amidst life's challenges.

Whether leading group classes, private sessions, or workshops, I am committed to meeting students where they are on their journey, offering personalized guidance and support along the way. By focusing on integrating the tools of yoga into everyday life, I guide students to cultivate greater awareness, resilience, and compassion both on and off the mat.

Yoga is a practice that permeates the way I approach creative work, the way I live, eat, and breathe. Also, the way I interact with others; my children, husband, and loved ones. And most importantly, yoga connects me to my authentic Self.

Come practice yoga with me so you too can feel a deep sense of joy and inner-peace.

Feel free to send an email if you have any questions, and you'll receive a response within 24 hours.

love & light
