Suzie found the path of yoga in her junior year of college at UW-Madison. She quickly took to the physical practice, which was a gateway unto the other psycho- emotional and spiritual benefits the practice has to offer. In 2011, Suzie underwent her 200 HR Teacher Training at the Blue Heron School of Wellness in Silver Spring, MD. She initially entered with the intention of deepening her own practice and has been humbled by all the ways her initial love affair with Yoga turned into a healing path, for both herself and those she is honored to guide. Suzie is currently undergoing training to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach (CHHC) through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) and she is very excited to marry the two avenues to help people achieve an overall sense of wellbeing in mind, body and spirit. 

Suzie grew up an athlete, and dancer, and believes that the way we move speaks volumes to our internal landscape. Our internal landscape is of course aptly effected by our circumstances, experiences, and often skewed perceptions of reality. Inviting+warmly welcoming students of varying backgrounds and abilities, Suzie teaches a flow class that is focused on a Vinyasa style practice, where movement is inspired by and deeply connected to the breath, the anchor to which we can call ourselves back to the present moment over and over again. Her practice encourages students to explore their physical boundaries, and make the decision to honor where they are, or push past them into a new sense of power, and strength, when it feels appropriate. Yoga asana (the physical practice) is but one (albeit important) component on the path of yoga, and Suzie hopes to introduce the idea that yoga asana is intricately linked to creating space, clarity, and calm in the emotional, energetic and spiritual bodies (and the mind!) She hopes to inspire you to reconnect with your inner light, power, and capacity for kindness.
