Maybe you are searching among branches for what only appears in the roots.
~ Rumi

Yoga is a way of being in harmony with life. Developed in India thousands of years ago, yogic precepts promote ways of harmonizing the physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of yourself, as well as for living harmoniously with everyone and everything around you. Our sedentary and fast-paced modern life frequently leaves us feeling tense, unwell and out of control, and a yogic lifestyle helps to find a better balance, inside and out.

Inspiration Yoga Centre, at 55 rue Alphonse Renard in Ixelles, is a cozy space where you can practice and learn about yoga, meditation, mindfulness, nutrition, and many other holistic wellness practices. Classes are offered in English or French, and sometimes both! Inspiration also regularly hosts yoga and related workshops and events led by inspiring local and visiting teachers.

Our Teachers:

Susan Hopkinson
Susan’s classes are always inspiring and her supportive way of teaching leaves her students feeling calm and refreshed. Adapting your yoga practice and daily habits to meet your individual needs helps you to find your unique and optimal balance, so each session has a flow and an emphasis which is unique, according to the energy and needs of her students. Susan empowers her students to examine their lives beyond the physical body, and stresses a holistic approach to self-realisation.

A yoga practitioner since 1985, Susan began teaching yoga in 1998, and qualified as a yoga therapist through the Yoga Biomedical Trust (London) as well as with Mukunda Stiles in 2007. She has studied many approaches to yoga since 1985, and regularly learns from teachers in Europe, India, and North America. Susan believes in teaching people, not poses, making each class unique, focused and transformational, responding to the needs and energy of the moment. The postural practice is just one gateway to understanding yoga, with the ultimate aim of becoming a more fully aware, balanced and integrated being. Most of her work involves individualised yoga or mindfulness-based therapy, distilling Yogic, Tantric, Buddhist and Ayurvedic philosophy into her teaching, and at times referring to the astrological influences of the moment. She teaches mindfulness courses throughout the year, in the spirit and tradition of her teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh. Susan offers yoga retreats in Europe and India, where she spends several weeks every year.
