Susana Franco is a Yoga teacher who graduated in History from the University of Lisbon. She worked in real estate for ten years, but a lack of fulfilment in her life made her decide to travel to India and then to Africa. After those trips she was not the same.
Concerned with the extreme poverty in some African countries and poor access to education by African children, Susana engaged in raising funds for SAMA, an NGO that promotes gender equality all over the world in support of an educational project in Uganda.
This involvement led Susana to climb Mount Kilimanjaro and to engage as a volunteer in a country that is widely known as “the pearl of Africa”. After that adventure, she embarked on a spiritual restructuring trip to India and to Southeast Asia. Along the way she met an Indian guru who radically changed her entire vision of life and taught her a new way of being.
Currently, Susana is instructor of Yoga Therapy and sponsors a pre-school in Uganda. Yoga and meditation are part of her daily routine, as is writing about spirituality. She believes we should always follow the heart as it is the messenger of the soul, and that each soul is a piece of the Divine on earth: we all have power enough to change our reality.
