Since 2008, Suran Song has served yoga in diverse settings to a wide range of students: from Olympic swimmers at Asphalt Green and senior citizens at Lenox Hill House in Manhattan, to spas such as Swept Away, Negril, Jamaica, and Canyon Ranch, to private and public schools on the Upper East Side and East Brooklyn. Her certification program was an intensive three-year program (2005-2008), one-on-one with Pema Chakan in which she learned the classical namskaras and poses in Sanskrit, as well as traditional yoga philosophy and therapeutic procedures. She is influenced by yoga teachers Pema Chakan, Isaac Pena, Jude English, and Dechen Thurman. She is certified to teach Himalayan Yoga in the lineage of Krishnamacharya through Yoga Alliance, as well as to teach Elementary School, Grades 1-6, and Art Specialty, K-12 through a consortium of Parsons School of Design, Teacher’s College, and Bank Street. This summer, Suran has concurrent yoga arts exhibits at Duke University, Center for Advanced Hindsight, and New York City’s The Laundromat Project, Create Change. Her work has been given numerous accolades including the invitation to launch Ogilvy’s YouTube Arts Channel: Create or Else (http://www.youtube.com/user/Ogilvy) Her art is held in both private collections and public institutions including Feminist Art, Special Collections and University Archives Gallery, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Her Korean father was a Professor of Eastern Philosophy and Library Director at Bryn Mawr College, and avid lover of art and archaeology. He fostered Suran’s creative investigation into the unnatural order of things. Her Greek mother was also an educator and librarian. She gave Suran the love of democracy and reading. 

Suran is very excited to be able to offer yoga for all this summer in her neighborhood, and very thankful to The Laundromat Project, Create Change for the impetus and funds to do so.
