I found yoga , or yoga found me...when I came up to Suffolk from London in 2005 to attend substance misuse rehab. It was rocky start of my journey to life without use of drugs. I was soon introduced to yoga through a friend in one of 12step fellowships which changed my life. Yoga complimented well with 12step program, also connected me to like minded people who were very supportive, gave me more tools to deal with after mass of active addiction, to find peace and being in present moment. 

 

I continued practicing yoga & soon found Qi Gong, I fell in love with both practice, which helped me to heal, and found myself for the first time ever in my life. I completed 200hr TT in 2015 with BSY, started teaching since 2016. Registered with IYN ( Independent Yoga Network    https://www.independentyoganetwork.org/teachers-found/norie-furusawa )

 

I am certified as a space holder for Y12SR ( Yoga For 12 Step Recovery) with Niki Myers (when Niki came to Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk, UK 2015)

In 2019, I was diagnosed Clear cell Ovarian cancer, my journey with cancer has begun. I truly believe yoga's been helping me not only to deal with side effects from treatments I've received also benefited me so much both mentally, physically and emotionally. In 2021 winter, my dream came true, I was certified to share yoga with fellow cancer patients and survivors through Tari Prinster  Yoga4Cancer   

( https://y4c.com/) One of positive things came out from Covid are; learning made more accessible via online/zoom platform with great teachers around the globe. 

I am also certified in Yin Yoga, I completed TT in 2020 with Norman Blair, Yoga Campus London. I love Yin yoga, always brings me back to present moment and be in stillness. 

Yoga for everyone and every body!  Anyone can benefit from practicing yoga. I am also part of Yoga For All Body Positive movement with Dian Bondy & Amber Karnes

( https://yogaforalltraining.com/business-directory/4708/norie-furusawa/), Chair yoga with Maria Jones with Yuva Yoga Scotland. Completed "Nervous system & Restorative yoga "  55hr TT with Yoga Medicine by Tiffany Cruikshank, 100hr Yoga Nidra Practice & teaching with Jane Mackerness - Classical Yoga in Devon. Currently, I am on 200hr TT  with Corrie MacCllum as refresher, planning to progress to 300hr in 2023. 

My classes are open to all level of practitioners. My approach to yoga is simple; holistic approach, focusing on physical, mental, emotional well beings. Connecting breath, movement and body, kindness towards ourselves, be curious and explore what feels good in each given moment. 

Being present moment is core of my approach. My approach to yoga changed over the years, always evolving. Because I am a for-ever student of yoga, learning never stop. I am open to new learnings. I love blending my learning & my personal practice into teaching/ sharing.....Norie style.

Can't wait for practicing together.
