Suzanne embarked on her journey to yoga in 2008 in search of her "off switch".  After 25 years in retail management all she knew how to do was be "on".  Yoga had a profound effect on her life both physically and emotionally.  She felt compelled to harness this new vitality, this sense of wellness, and share the power with others.  She trained with Yogacharya Eric Walrabenstein at Yoga Pura (Phoenix) and is currently an E-RYT500 with Yoga Alliance, a Certified Yin Yoga Teacher and Yoga Nidra Facilitator, Reiki Master, Aromatherapist, as well as a Certified Katherine Roberts’ Yoga For Golfers Instructor and Official Trainer for FXP Hula Hoop Fitness. She is also a YACEP, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, who provides continuing education credits for other yoga teachers. Her classes focus on alignment with a profound (or not so profound) intention, a little humor, and a lot of realism.

As the author of YES: Your Empowered Self® workshops & training modules, she incorporates the sister science of Ayurveda and the power of essential oils into her practice for an overall sense of well-being.  Suzanne offers support & loyalty in the hopes that others may come to realize their own strength. This inspired her to partner with the Yoga and Body Image Coalition to spread the word that every body is a yoga body.

When she is not on her mat you can most likely find her immersed in some new yoga book, her trusty rescued companion Zsa Zsa, also known as "Yoga Dog", by her side, and yes, a glass of wine is close-by also.

Suzanne is an excellent yoga instructor, one of my favorites! I also appreciate her aromatherapy knowledge. She's kind and real and has a great sense of humor about life.

Suzanne is a great teacher! I love taking her class. Whether you're a beginner or more advanced practitioner, you will enjoy her class. Her cues are very specific and she uses different variations of the poses that are easily accessible. She is also a beautiful person who always has a smile!

I was fortunate to have Suzanne as my personal Yoga instructor.  I was having sciatica and arthritis issues that I wanted to alleviate or get rid of.  She helped tremendously.  My sciatica problem has all but disappeared.  My arthritis problem has been so much alleviated by the Yoga exercises (and taking fish oil).  I recommend Suzanne highly.

Suzanne is an excellent Yoga instructor, lets you move at your own pace, and understands not all bodies bend the same.

Suzanne is the perfect combination of friendly, accessible and professional. In just our first session she was able to provide instruction that will allow me to get much more out of my yoga practice. Like the saying, 'the devil is in the details,' Suzanne's seemingly small adjustments made a tremendous impact on the quality of my postures. I am looking forward to session 2!

Suzanne is a wonderful and skilled teacher who obviously takes great care in the preparations for her classes. She's consistently attentive and provides classes that challenge her students while simultaneously respecting their limits. Highly recommended.
