Susanna Wise

Susanna’s journey with Daniella and Body Temple Yoga™ School began in 2015, when she started The Head to Heart Personal Transformation Program. Over the next two years she kept turning to Daniella’s teachings. She completed The Becoming A Heart Based Leader Program & The Ambassador Program. After 5 years of study, she now assists The Head To Heart Personal Transformation Program.
Having always been an athlete, she benefits from the Body Temple Yoga™ alignment principles and loves how they cross over into all areas of movement. She finds wonder and joy in discovering how her body moves, and what it is capable of, and loves connecting her students with their bodies and guiding them through their own explorations.
What kept her coming back to Body Temple Yoga™ School, is the depth and power of leading from the heart, the transformative effect it has had on her life, and the desire to learn more and go deeper on this path.  It has been and continues to be a journey that has held numerous gifts and helped her begin to uncover who she really is and what she really wants. The further down the heart path she travelled, the more she has received from it, and the more she has felt called to share its power with those she serves.
