Suzanne Vian is an amazing teacher. The 200 - hour teacher training was well structured and well balanced between theory and practice. I felt challenged and loved at the same time. I can with all my heart recommend this training and Suzanne Vian. Suzanne Kirkvaag Reppe, Oslo, Norway

"This 200- Hour YTT - Amazing program, excellent teachers, beautiful classmates, and an absolutely fantastic experience- Honestly the best thing I've ever done for myself, I'd recommend this program to anyone. I learned so much from Suzanne- it was the perfect beginning to a new path."
Sarah M Patterson, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate, USA


Suzanne's Yoga For Wellness teacher training was transformational. The focus on alignment and foundations of yoga has completely changed my personal practice and will influence every class I teach. Suzanne helps to strip away the ego and jazziness that often accompanies yoga these days, and helps her students to understand the incredible benefits of yoga as a lifestyle choice. Her focus on mindfulness has changed the way I interact and react in daily life and I feel like a better mother, partner and citizen as a result of this training. Would highly recommend this course and really look forward to continuing my development with Suzanne. Steph Cantrell, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate 2018


I love the way she trained me to do meditation, the way she wakes up the warm heart from each of us and the way to improve the general health of ourselves. The fixing alignment is good as well. And the most important to is about the way she trains us to keep safe for our body during practicing time, how to keep the learner in the safe space when we teach yoga. This is the most important thing to me and I feel found out the right school to satisfy my wish for learner. Vi Ngo, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate 2018

Today I feel my warm blood is circulating at the edge of my body. Thank you!" Dr. Y, Japan

“Suzanne, your ability to teach is outstanding. I rate your training a 5 out of 5. You are so supportive, which is something you don’t find in a lot of training programs. The only advice I would give is to teach more and more people. People need this.  The transformation I see and feel in myself is amazing, I can’t even recognize myself.  Your yoga certification training is one of the best things I have done for myself and I am so thankful I did it with you. Namaste!” Evin Pinar Butt, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate, Turkey

"I took my Yoga Alliance 200 hour Teacher Training with Suzanne Vian in Ho Chi Minh Vietnam. Suzanne is a gifted teacher, who brings warmth, humor and common sense to her classes. Thanks to decades of experience, Suzanne seems to have an almost intuitive grasp of what her students need in order to improve and thrive. Unlike many talented yogis, she never shows off and keeps the focus of her classes firmly upon her students and their safety. If you have injuries or physical limitations or wish to teach those who do, Suzanne is an excellent choice of teacher, for her classes are both challenging and accessible."  Elka Ray, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate, Canada

The training was great and taught me far more than I ever hoped to learn." Barbara Cimpa, Teacher Training Graduate, Germany


It was a very well planned, detailed, practical and holistic course. An excellent foundation for aspiring yoga teachers. Tazeen Haroon, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate 2016


This course far exceeded my expectations. While the 'on-the-mat' knowledge of asana and class sequencing was excellent, it was the 'off-the-mat' training that really made this learning experience so unique. The philosophy, meditation and self-development can not be undervalued. I would like to thank the amazing team at Suzanne Vian Yoga School for this inspirational and awakening course. Sarah Hastie, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


"I just wanted to thank you for this great workshop yesterday. I feel so much better. I have a cold more or less since August which I can't rid of - and last evening even my husband realized that my breathing is much better than it was the last weeks. It is like a miracle for me!"  
Christel, France

"Studying with Suzanne was life-changing experience" Agnes, Hungary  

Suzanne Vian's Yoga for Wellness 200 hour training was a life changing experience.

Robin Shepard, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


"While my time in Saigon, I had the great opportunity to meet this amazing soul, devoted teacher, wonderful woman and desirable mother who I bet every kid would love to have!! I was trained to the 200- Hour YTT and I had the best time in all the almost 2 years spent in Saigon! She teaches the structure with a special attention in details, she can pass the passion she has through her experience! She can share all her knowledge and feelings as the best friend ever! 
She could be defined by me the guru of my yoga, for a life time! She will be always in a special place in my heart." Silvia Shiva, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate, Italy


She was my mentor, she really helped me learn how to keep it safe when i do yoga which i really appreciated. It's not about fancy poses, it's about how you feel and benefit from doing yoga, that's what she taught me. Nhu Tran, Yoga Teacher Training Graduate


"Suzanne is one of the most thoughtful and encouraging yoga teachers I have ever worked with. Further, you are never put off  by her years of experience on the mat as she is a humble practitioner and keeps her focus solely on her students. She offers her students a well rounded, safe approach to yoga. Anyone wanting to simply learn more about yoga or who is thinking about becoming a yoga teacher would do well in this course, as her training is outstanding for any level."  
Amy Moyers, USA


Suzanne is an incredible teacher and her 200 hour YTT program was transforming. Her focus on the spiritual practice alongside the physical asana gives you techniques that you can take with you to make big improvements, not just in your own yoga practice or as a teacher, but in every aspect of your life. Carina Hummel Yoga Teacher Training Graduate 2018


The YTT at Suzanne Vian Yoga for Wellness is well-planned covering adequate fundamentals with passionate, dedicated and extremely insightful instructors led by Suzanne herself.

Looking forward to see you soon."
