One injury changed Suzanne's world. She began practicing due to a foot injury in hopes of avoiding invasive treatment. Not only did she slowly heal her foot, but her corporate sales job anxiety and stress levels dropped. There was a measurable difference in her life on all levels. After 10 years of practice growing more interested in body mechanics and the unending philosophical layers of yoga, Suzanne attended a teacher training - simply to enhance her knowledge. Driven by the desire to educate and empower others, she found herself teaching.
In addition to facilitating anatomy studies at teacher trainings, Suzanne guides a variety of styles including vinyasa, slow flow and yin. She creates balanced and precise classes without being tedious by using easy-to-follow language. Combining alignment and breath, students of all levels and abilities tune in to body and mind. Suzanne's goal is to create an even-paced class without burnout. You may even find yourself laughing in more challenging poses as she reminds you with her wacky sense of humor that we are all working on the same poses - all the time! Suzanne creates an opportunity to relish in a practice that reduces stress, embraces your uniqueness and may make a difference in your life off your mat.
When Suzanne isn't in a studio, she's enjoying time with her family, traveling, taking in an action flick or reading. She still loves to take workshops and trainings to support community, stay inspired as a student and up-to-date on anatomy and kinesiology as it relates to yoga. Her main teacher is Jason Crandell with whom she studied for her 500-hour certification and countless workshops.
