Internationally celebrated for her warm presence, soulful teachings, and quirky sense of play, Sufey Chen (nicknamed “Baby Buddha” by her students) is an alchemist of breath, song, and creative essence. From guiding 200/500-hour teacher training immersions to rockin’ out center stage with her kirtan band to trance dancing it up at the top music festivals in the world, Sufey’s offerings are all prayers to Ma Shakti – to the fierce, the wild, and the loving within us all.


A devoted student of the healing arts, Sufey shares only the practices that have profoundly altered her own life. Her formal education includes four intensive years of biomedical health sciences in anatomy, physiology, psychology, lifespan development, genetics and biology at the University of Northern British Columbia, delightful dabblings in art, theatre and dance at New Mexico State University and 3500+ hours of studying, assisting, guesting and leading teacher trainings in vinyasa, kundalini, yin, prenatal, kids yoga, ecstatic dance, acroyoga, thai massage, anatomy, meditation, pranayama and bhakti yoga.


With a penchant for radical transformation and spontaneous metamorphosis, experiences with Sufey are always dynamic, always heartfelt, and constantly evolving. After a decade of full-time teaching and touring through Hawaii, Bali, Costa Rica, Canada, China and the USA, Sufey comes with a rich palette of world culture, wisdom from the land, and shamanic tools for healing. Guided by love, intuition and primal instinct, Sufey is a teacher well suited for both devoted practitioners and open-minded beginners — those willing to crack out of their comfort zones to FULLY experience their potential!


An artiste, doula, poetess and priestess, this little mystic will love you, challenge you, and inspire you to grow. She is a birther and re-birther of babies and adults alike, having touched hundreds of thousands of lives throughout the world. Come to dance your heart dance and to sing your soul song: all beings are welcome here.
