Yoga is a practice of humanity. Conscious movement on the mat translates to conscious movement in life. Yoga teaches us to be our highest Self as lovers, parents, children, siblings, co-workers, teachers, students, citizens and friends.
The definition of Yoga is “to yoke”, to unite. In our practice, we unite with our highest Self, the Divine. When we devote ourselves to wholeness (holiness) within, our entire life experience shifts. Ease, simplicity, service and compassion become the cornerstones of our existence. From this, we experience joyful connection with other holy beings.
The first Sanskrit mantra I ever learned was this:
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
May the thoughts, words and actions of my own life
Contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all
I chant this daily in honour of my teachers and a world that inspires me to live freely, happily and kindly. Yoga has given me a lifetime of love, and this is why I teach Yoga.

From the Mouths of Holy Beings
“Everything Sufey Chen touches seems to involve her being the vessel for other people having a good time, learning new things and being inspired. What impact could be better for one person to have?”
— Frank Peebles
“Sufey is truly extraordinary. She is driven, fearless, passionate, unique, gentle and magical! Sufey is an expert at what she does. She GIVES so much to the community and we need more people like her in this world! Sufey inspires adults as well as children. My 11 year old daughter loves yoga classes with Sufey. She comes home very happy and cheerful with excitement and bright light in her eyes.”
— Aneta Douglass
“Sufey creates a safe, fun practice that embodies love and inclusivity. She combines asana, breathing, meditation and community through play; I found a new ‘yoga glow’ following her class. This play helped me rediscover something very powerful. Expect laughter, music, fun and a powerful energetic workout!”
— Holly Rae
“Sufey’s classes are lila. They are playful, and amazing, and they feel like a class with Osho’s daughter. She is so inspirational, her classes got me through things. I just love Sufey. She’s so spontaneous and pure and blissful. I love her dances, and how she gets us into child’s pose, talking so simply but at the same time taking it so deep.
If you need to be uplifted and feel joyful, just go take Sufey’s class. She will make you laugh, and dance, and breathe.”
— Liza Patiño
“Sufey’s class was a divine experience. That’s the only way I can describe it— I felt like it took me really deep into my own inner joy, which is such a gift. I felt so connected to the present moment— we’re feeling the wind, hearing the waves, listening to the birds. Listening to her talk was a freeing experience. I felt really free in her class. There were no expectations of me, I didn’t need to do anything, I could express myself in whatever way I needed to.
To create that space as a teacher is healing for the planet.
I’m not just going to say “I love myself”. I’m going to feel it.
What’s it like to feel like you love yourself? Pretty darn good.
I thank Sufey for her gift of pure shining light with no reservations.
She’s totally courageous in her teaching style. She’s a courageous person.”
