More About Our Mentors...

Suzanne Gundersen

Stress Relief & Self-Regulation Mentor, Retreat Organizer

Suzanne helps those struggling with stress, anxiety, tension and trauma, to reconnect with their lives, their bodies and their relationships.   She’s passionate about helping others feel more connected, fulfilled and experience life with genuine aliveness.  

For decades, she struggled with anxiety and felt disconnected with herself and the world.  In 2004, she went in search of relief and found some incredible natural mindbody healing tools and techniques that are easy to use, living skills that helped her transform towards feeling whole and complete (which she surrenders is a lifelong practice).  While she can still experience anxiety today, she has awareness of what is creating it and applies the tools she’s learned to keep herself balanced and as a result, experiences life with deeper connection and fulfillment.

 Do you want more authentic and meaningful connections with yourself, your partner, friends, family, coworkers?

  • Are you craving reliable, trusting and satisfying connections you can enjoy?

Katherine Ryan

Yoga Instructor

Katherine approaches yoga with both a scientific logistical background (from a bachelor of science degree in biology), and a love for the spiritual and healing aspect of the practice. She strongly believes in the importance of holding sacred safe space for her students to allow them to explore asanas for themselves, and to allow them to get to know themselves on a deeper more intimate level.   She was introduced to yoga at an early age, however it wasn't until her years of biological studies at the University of Victoria, British Columbia that she truly discovered its powerful influence on mind, body, and overall well-being. In 2015, she decided to deepen her practice by spending an immersive month in Maui, Hawaii studying and practicing under the watchful eyes of senior teachers at Maui Yoga Shala. It was here she completed her RYT-200 and truly started her personal journey with yoga.  In addition to her RYT-200 certification and her Bachelor of Science degree, she is certified to teach Buti Yoga®, which combines power yoga, tribal dance, plyometrics, and the Spiral Structure Technique to facilitate transformation from the inside out. This practice encourages the release of emotional trauma, the restoration and function of the energetic body, and the activation of shakti energy. It also creates healthy self-confidence and connections between practitioners.   She has completed programs that customize yoga for both PTSD and Cancer patients.


Juliana Jordani

Certified Health Educator and Holistic Chef

Juliana received her certification as a Health Educator at the world-renowned Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, FL. She is also a certified vegan food chef from the Living Cuisine Academy in Fort Lauderdale.

Juliana considers spiritual growth and self-improvement very important to her personal journey. She has dedicated many years to study different spiritual masters, theories and philosophies aiming to better understand life and human behavior. Over time she developed a comprehensive understanding of “observation-analysis-action”; allowing her to fully understand the best way to deal with situations in life and, thus, objectively put into action these insights. This is her approach for teaching each of her clients better nutrition.

Juliana’s interest with nutrition originated due to an ulcer she developed years ago and decided to heal it through natural foods and procedures – without allopathic medicines. She realized that food could drastically improve the functioning of her body, clarity of mind and the way that she feels connected with nature, people and the world; becoming a single path to health, with spirituality and food.

Educating others about the mind, body and spirit is Juliana’s passion. It is through this ownership of one’s health that true healing can begin. Juliana is able to assist others on their individual life’s path, meeting them wherever they and help them self heal by teaching conscious thinking and eating habits to develop a wholesome lifestyle.

Juliana is available for private one on one session as well as group programs and workshops.

Amanda Hills

Certified Yoga Instructor

Finding Yoga in 2011-Amanda began to “root” herself by studying multiple Yogic Philosophies, movement methods, and meditation techniques. Founding Soulga in 2015, Amanda has become the teacher she is today by combining the Hatha Yoga (Postural or Asana) traditions, increased body/breathe awareness (Pranayama), and deep respect of the practice as a whole. Amanda hopes to empower one person at a time to engage mind, body, and spirit in class and beyond.

Born and raised in Westchester New York, she always had a passion for movement of the body. Trained as a gymnast and dancer growing up it only seemed natural as an adult to pursue practicing and teaching Yoga. After receiving her 200 Hour Certification in 2015, she started to explore other fields such as SUP Yoga and Pilates. Raised as strong athlete, dancer, and gymnast she continued to light her spiritual fire with movement of the body. You can find her paddle boarding at sunrise, spending time with her dog Hercules on the beach, or covered in paint at her home studio. Her passion for physical exercise and spiritual connection started at a young age and was inspired her my mother, who was also a gymnast. Yoga helped her recover from an eight year battle with an Eating Disorder, and showed her how to befriend and love her body as opposed to destructing it. Amanda hopes to empower one person at a time to engage mind, body, and spirit in class and beyond.
