Although Riji Suh has been a New Yorker since the age of 6, she was born in Seoul, South Korea, and raised in Baghdad, Iraq. Brooklyn finally feels like home, after having left NYC repeatedly in search for home in New Mexico and Hawaii. Her education and career paths have taken her from Colgate University to work on television and film, from bartending to corporate advertising, and from yoga (specifically the Bikram, Ghosh, and Dharma lineages) to work with the camera once again.
In this episode, you’ll hear from Riji on:
- Riji’s special skill that she attributes to her dynamic international upbringing, and why she finally felt at home when she landed in New York
- How she introduced playful movement into a Native American community in New Mexico, and what that experience taught her about teaching before she ever started teaching yoga
- The dark cloud that loomed over Riji from her childhood through much of her teaching career, and why she’s finally basking in sunlight today
