Dare to Know What you Love & Live it!
Suzanna Yahya Nadler is an energetic force that channels her power into dancing, teaching, counseling and gardening at the Self & Soul Center and beyond. As a Movement Therapist, Group Leader, SoulWork Practitioner and Body Poet, she catalyzes others to find and honor their hearts’ passions, step into the center of life and relationships while bringing play into the process of embodiment.
Suzanna pursued movement as a healing art by getting her master’s in Dance/Movement Therapy after experiencing her own transformations through dancing. Her educational focus in developmental psychology alongside her current study into shame and attachment theory bring a foundational understanding to her work with couples and individuals. Her background includes the psycho-spiritual Diamond Approach which broadened her body orientation with inquiry and focusing or sensing the body. Training and years of teaching the Enneagram brought greater compassion and understanding around our core motivations, illuminated the strengths and weaknesses of the three centers of the body (belly, heart and mind) and each person’s unique path toward wholeness. Currently SoulWork heals the relationships with the many aspects of self and creatively interfaces one’s inner life with the world.
Growing most of the food that she and her husband eat, she also has a farm business of Yahya Divine Elixirs, which are vinegar and simple syrup infusions from the farm’s fruits, vegetables and medicinals. She trains farm helpers to lead the art and hard work of homesteading and creating small businesses.
Body Poetry is Suzanna’s new interactive performance art that has evolved from personal exploration with Authentic Movement and her dance partner, Silvia Kohen. Body Poetry combines memorized spoken poetry with personal life vignettes and improvisational movement. Accessing presence and the art of contactfulness combine to create an invitation to participate and notice what the performance evokes for the performer and those witnessing. Check out her performances on YouTube.
Suzanna’s unique embodied presentations and performances invite others to explore knowing self and the world through the body. They include Creativity & Madness conferences, the Renfrew Center, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, Wine & Psyche, and the Ashland Counseling Center.
