About Suza Francina
Suza Francina was born in 1949 in The Hague, Holland, and is of Dutch-Indonesian heritage. A yoga teacher since 1972, she is the author of four books on yoga for people at midlife and older: Yoga for People Over 50 (Devin Adair, 1977); The New Yoga for People Over 50 (Health Communications, Inc., 1997); Yoga and the Wisdom of Menopause (HCI 2003); and The New Yoga for Healthy Aging (HCI 2007).
Suza’s new book, Fishing on Facebook: A Writing Yoga Memoir, (April 2012) is the first in a series of “writing yoga” memoirs, drawn from her practice of daily journal writing.
Suza lives in Ojai, California, where she is a former mayor and long-time community activist. She considers her social and ecological activism to be an essential part of her daily-life yoga practice. The mother of a grown son and daughter, she is a passionate animal advocate whose family also includes several dogs and cats.
