Sucha Kumar; “I'm really proud to say that as I grow up, I'm becoming more and more like my mommy. She was my first yoga teacher who would always teach me and take me to class from age 5. She was also my #1 supporter of my dance practice, a training practice that I spent a lot of time on through college.
From high school onward, I got really curious about different training practices, especially weight-lifting, functional movement, and HIIT. My love and curiosity for practicing all movement in synchronization began to grow, which led me to create #MovementFusion experiences in collaboration with other amazing leaders in the community.
I want more people to experience the benefits, the training and the FUN of incorporating multiple types of training in their daily/weekly routines. I'm also a huge supporter of living more plant-based and encouraging environmental sustainability. Do it for your long-term healthy heart, body & earth <3
Movement has always been my passion, I’m from a family of athletes and grew up outside. Very early on, I began to train what I now know as HIIT and Yoga to prepare to go on backpacking trips. Another big aspect that was introduced to me during that time was living altruistically. That guided me into working with people, which started as a Recovery Coach. In that role over time I began to use the tools that worked best for me, which bring us back to movement.
After witnessing their liberation and having been set free to my own truth I began to follow my bliss. Beginning with Yoga, guiding me into dance then to boxing, HIIT, Animal Flow and most recently Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. This is why I’m so drawn to the #MovementFusion that Sucha has cultivated a platform for with its joyful holistic approach.
My intention is to give back all the miraculous tools that have been so graciously given to me. For people to come experience what it’s like to use these tools and walk away empowered because now these tools are theirs. To do it for a cause that supports internal and external sustainability and abundance. And last but not least to follow your bliss.
Dana Mitchell grew up on the Jersey Shore but her quest for adventure sent her traveling cross country. When she landed in San Diego, she decided to stay put.
