Susan developed an interest in teaching yoga during her work as a psychotherapist at an outpatient addiction treatment facility. She wanted to be able to offer patients a somatic form of therapy along with traditional psychotherapy. Susan first became certified in Y12SR (Yoga of 12 Step Recovery) in 2016. Shortly thereafter, in 2017, she completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance certification in Integrative Flow. In 2018, after being inspired during a Yin Yoga class, Susan became certified in Yin Yoga began her journey toward her 300-hour certification with Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts. Susan completed this in 2020, thereby reaching her 500-hour Yoga Alliance teacher certification.
By integrating her caring and compassionate nature with her attention to alignment and the body in space, Susan welcomes the beginning student and those wishing to refine their practice. She teaches from an attitude of lightheartedness and spontaneity – as each one of us changes from moment to moment, so too will the flow in each of her classes. With a strong belief in the healing nature of yoga, Susan guides students to believe in and trust themselves. She encourages students to try new things without judgement and to laugh while doing so. When not teaching, you will most likely see Susan in a yoga class as she has experienced the value of daily practice in her own life, both physically, spiritually, and therapeutically.
