Susan has been practicing and studying yoga since the mid 1990's. She became a certified instructor in 2001 and has been teaching consistently for over 14 years. In addition to her 200 hour certification, she is certified in trauma-informed yoga, Love Your Brain yoga for traumatic brain injury and concussion, yoga for pregnancy, yoga for children, yoga for seniors and Thai Yoga massage.
In Susan's class, she guides you safely, creatively, and joyfully down the path of self-awareness. Together we learn how to practice without pain, embrace what we can and cannot do without judgment, and live in peaceful residence in our bodies. By wholeheartedly allowing ourselves to simply be, we learn from the inside out. I believe this is one of the reasons yoga truly transforms us. By getting out of our heads and into our hearts, the insights we have on the mat begin to stick, at a deep, cellular level. These insights, in turn, begin to inform our lives off the mat.
Susan has also done extensive advanced training in yoga therapeutics, anatomy, mindfulness, and energy studies. She has taught at area health clubs, yoga studios, hospitals, senior centers, synagogues and businesses in Acton, Concord, Carlisle, Devens, and Lincoln, MA. Her inspiration comes from numerous yoga styles, decades of dance training, and from her sensitivity to her students’ needs and energies.
You can practice with Susan for Slow Flow on Wednesdays at 9am.
