Susie Newson

Susie Newson Lead Trainer - 500hr E-RYT

Susie was called to yoga in 2002. The injurious life of a professional ballet dancer led her to yoga as a way to heal her body while continuing to express herself through movement. Yoga became more than a healing system and form of expression. For Susie, yoga was a life support system that offered the tools to cultivate a more intimate relationship with herself. Yoga continues to support her in navigating this wild journey we call life with more peace, grace and ease.

Susie began her yoga studies with Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini (Maya Yoga) in 2008. She studied extensively with Nicki and Eddie and completed four Maya Yoga Teacher Training courses, including Maya Yoga’s 500hr YTT. In 2010 Susie organized and coordinated Maya Yoga’s first Canadian Yoga Teacher Training in Kelowna, BC.[nbsp_tc] In 2011/2012 Susie accepted the invitation to live on Maui with Nicki and Eddie. There, she devoted herself to her yoga studies while managing Maya Yoga. Her passion led her to coordinate and sell out Maya Yoga’s first 500hr Yoga Teacher Training course. In 2013 Susie completed her 500hr Moksha Yoga teacher training and was an integral part of the Moksha Yoga Kelowna sangha for over four years. Most recently, Susie completed 100hrs of Advanced Vinyasa Krama teacher training with Srivatsa Ramaswami. These various yoga studies have credited her over 2000hrs of teacher training, which have, in turn, inspired a devotion to sharing her studies for the past decade.

In 2012 Susie founded Mocean Yoga. Her intention and passion behind the vision of Mocean Yoga were to leverage her own light to help you stand in your light and embody your fullest expression. Susie has a profound love for creating yoga retreats and teacher training experiences in Canada, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and around the world that offer the tools to put your Manifestations in Mocean and live out your most magnificent existence. In 2016 Susie was drawn back to her roots on Vancouver Island. Here she answered the call to build and open the doors to Mocean Yoga Studio; a space in which others are encouraged to explore, experience and live their fullest expression through yoga.

Natalie Bishop

Natalie Bishop Lead Trainer - 500hr E-RYT, Occupational Therapist, Medical Yoga Therapist

As an occupational therapist Natalie believes that quality of life is created through meaningful engagement in the activities that make up our days. She feels that the current health care system has some amazing strengths and that it can only be strengthened by the use of complementary practices – such as yoga – that have existed for thousands of years.

Natalie was first introduced to yoga during her training as a dancer. Several years later in 2004, after being diagnosed with a genetic heart condition she fell in love with it. She trusts in the healing potential of this practice as it has been vital in both re-creating her own health and her work as an occupational therapist.

[br_tc]Natalie feels passionately that we are here for each other and her reverence for human biology (and its magic!) guides her to work and practice with kindness in order to restore strength and integrity to the body, mind and spirit. She believes there are therapeutic secrets hidden in all aspects Yoga.

Diana began her voyage as a teacher in Revelstoke, where she was able to combine her passion for snow sports and yoga.

[br_tc]In 2015 Diana followed the whispers of her heart to the shores of Bali on an adventure around South East Asia, the time spent away prompted the purchase of what is now known as the Mocean Yoga Head Quarters. The studio now serves as a platform to share the gift of yoga to the people she loves. Most recently Diana completed a skill in action advanced teacher training with Natalie Rousseau, this was an opportunity to find new inspiration for opening the doors of the Mocean Yoga studio in January 2017.
