Suraya founded Ascend Yoga Therapy, a registered yoga school with Yoga Alliance, as a platform to help and guide one to understand the sacred science of yoga through the Chakra system.
An essential oil lover herself, she uses Young Living Essential Oils, meditation, and sound therapy to complement her classes and to provide a holistic experience for her students.
Suraya Sam is a full-time Yoga teacher with over 20,000 hours of international teaching experience and is certified E-RYT and YACEP.
She first started Yoga to heal injuries she sustained in competitive sports but noticed that it also helped her cope with the loss of her father. Right before she was going to start university, her mom decided to move the family from Singapore to Peru. Without a formal degree, Suraya has had to learn how to run a business from the bottom up and has kept fighting her corner to get to where she is today.
Her goal is to teach people how to cope with challenges in their lives and overcome what they think are shortcomings through healthy living and self-realization.
