Yoga Teacher/ Fitness Instructor - Meet and Greet Q/A Interview

Date: March 17, 2020

Interview Featuring Ms. Suzan Altay

 

  • Q: When and what brought you to sign up for your first yoga/ fitness class?
  • A: I grew up in Cyprus with no regular exercise. When I first moved to London 20 years ago, my best friend suggested “Let’s go to gym”. My response was “Who is Jim”? I had no idea what she was talking about. Long story short, once she dragged me in, I joined (what I thought would be the easiest and little I knew how challenging it would be) class and it was love at first sight. I knew there and then yoga would be a part of my life, forever...

  • A: Bubbly, smiley, happy, giving, caring.
  • Q: Where are you from and what kind of yoga or fitness classes do you offer?
  • A: I am based in London, Docklands. I offer Hatha, Dynamic Hatha, Vinyasa, Prenatal Yoga, Yin Yoga, Pilates, Pop Pilates, Mindfulness & Meditation classes, Thai Massage and Nutritional advice...

    Q: How long have you been practicing yoga/ exercising and why did you decide to teach yoga/ fitness classes?
    A: It’s now over 20 years I’ve been practicing yoga almost every day. Of course at the beginning it was more of a hobby. 10 years ago, I went through a ‘personal development’ phase. I had a full time job in sound engineering, I had done my masters, I wasn’t ready to start my PhD and so I thought, what a better way to keep myself busy; study yoga to learn more about it. Even before I finished my course, I had a job offer! Over the years, I slowly started reducing my hours at work to take on more yoga hours, and it took off from there. Now I teach full time, around 45 classes a week! The course was the best thing I’ve done for myself!


    Q:
    What was the first type of sport/ physical exercise that you truly enjoyed growing up as a child?
    A: I am Mediterranean, would siestas count?;-) On a serious note, being a Mediterranean, unfortunately sports/activities was never a part of our life when I was growing up...Luckily it all changed now!

    Q:
    What’s your teaching style? What style of yoga/ fitness classes do you enjoy and teach? What makes a good yoga or fitness trainer?
    A: I teach several different styles of yoga and Pilates. I have a very hands-on, touchy-feely approach. I spend a lot of time to talk about the correct technique. Having started yoga at a later age and not being a dancer, ballerina or gymnast (most yoga instructors have similar backgrounds), I think I have the advantage of understanding how an ordinary body feels. Also, being a teacher in my previous job as well, I developed lots of patience. I believe I am approachable and communicative. Oh, and charming;-) I never pretend I know the best or I am perfect on any pose. And I think these make a good teacher a great teacher...

    Q: How often do you practice yoga/ exercise and how often do you recommend your students to practice yoga or exercise?
    A: I practice every day! Yoga can never be too much. The best thing about it also is that you can match it to your mood. Some days I feel like being more dynamic, sometimes quieter/stretchy. It is necessary to to stay active, our life styles doesn’t allow movement anymore. Sitting in the office all day long is affecting our physical health and posture. One doesn’t need a full hour, everyday a few moments of gentle stretching would make a huge difference.

    Q: What is your favorite mantra or your Yama and Niyama from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras?

    A: The simplest word with the biggest meaning “Om”.

     

    Q: Who are your favorite yoga teachers/ athletes that inspired you early on in your yoga/ fitness journey and why?

    A: I don’t think I can name one. Every person who enters our lives, inspires us in different ways. My very first teacher, Barbara, inspired me to be who I am today, she made me believe I was good at yoga. My second teacher, Jaqui, was a petite lady but super duper strong, making me believe nothing is unachievable. And my teacher, Elena, during my teacher training course taught me what’s more important is the internal strength. That helped me to build my confidence and believe in myself. And many many more who I am eternally grateful.

     

    Q: What is the most challenging part about being a yoga/ fitness teacher during this Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic season? How do you think the global yoga or fitness industry should evolve with technology? Do you see self-promotion on social media as an effective way of gaining students/ private clients?

    A: Being self employed and suddenly losing the income has been the scariest part. We all have expenses, rent/mortgages to pay and the biggest worry is not knowing when the crisis will be over. I have now started teaching my classes online. It feels very different to teaching an actual class. As the demonstrations are now 2D, I have to make sure verbally I am more clear with my instructions. I am missing being able to adjust people what I call with the 'magic touch'. But this might also be a good way for the students to pay attention to their own posture as the help isn't there anymore. And it is a great way of giving people the opportunity to keep fit and calm. I guess it's early days and we all will adapt to this new way of teaching very quickly. Social media does play a very big part but, if I have to be very honest, 99% of my clients have come to me by 'word of mouth'. They trust the recommendations more than what they see/we show on social media. It certainly is a great way of communicating with the followers though.

    Q:
    What is your favorite yoga pose/ fitness workout?
    A: Oh, that's a tough one. Depending on my mood, time of the day or even seasons, I seem to like different poses. I get a different feeling from every pose. But, if I have to pick, I would say Astavakrasa (Eight-Angle Pose). (See Image Below) I need to make sure I strengthen my arms & core and stretch my hamstrings & hips. A full body work out...

    Q: What’s your favorite morning and night-time beauty or wellness routine?

    A: Morning, definitely a nice cool shower and night time, sleep! At least 8 hours of it. I am not into cosmetics, etc but I believe by allowing my body to rest, I would be giving it the best treat.


    Q:
    Do you have any upcoming workshops such as retreats/ corporate training or current projects you would like to share with us

    A: Unfortunately I had to postpone my retreat in South Africa in April. I still have another one planned in Cyprus in September but it will depend on the travel restrictions due to the pandemic. Now that I have more time at home, I would love to arrange online workshops.
