Susanna Harwood Rubin

Yoga. Writing. Art. at

Susanna combines her life as a yoga teacher with her background as a visual artist and writer, bringing the three disciplines into conversation. She is a storyteller who loves weaving Hindu myth and Tantric philosophy into her yoga classes. She has spent over eleven years immersed in study with renowned scholar of Hindu Tantra, Dr. Douglas Brooks, with whom she travels regularly to South India. Susanna teaches weekly at Virayoga, in NYC, and offers workshops at Abhaya Yoga in Brooklyn. Practice with her online at StudioLiveTV. She also gives talks on yoga and Hindu myth online and at yoga studios internationally.

Susanna delights in bringing the yoga off of the mat and into other creative forms. She writes for several publications, including Elephant Journal, Rebelle Society, Origin Magazine, and YOGANONYMOUS. Overlapping with her early years as a yoga teacher, Susanna lectured and wrote extensively for NYC’s Museum of Modern Art, including co-writing the book Looking at Matisse and Picasso. She continues to work as a visual artist creating drawings and installations deeply influenced by her yogic studies.

Susanna created Writing Your Practice workshops for yogis, which apply yoga philosophy and myth to the practice of writing. She teaches Writing Your Practice, a teleconference writing course that guides people to find and refine their voices. In the past two years the course has included students from North, Central and South America, Europe, East Asia, and Africa.
