Just a small town girl from Binghamton NY. Susan enjoyed playful movement from a young age through cheerleading, starting in her high school years. Being fully artistic by nature, Susan’s passion for the arts brought her to NYC to follow her heart in fashion design. Susan used her creativity designing clothing on 7th avenue many years before finding the need for a change.
Finding yoga in 2000, Susan began to explore this multi faceted practice in a more deeply manner. As the light began to shine on her practice, it revealed many paths which soon led Susan to begin her first training, she is now ERYT 500 certified. Blending her love for movement and the arts she found herself in Aerial Yoga, Suspension Fitness, Barre, Acro, Reiki and Thai massage trainings. Not ready to stop Susan is enrolled in a 100 hour Mediation Training through Integral Yoga NYC. Her joy and passion for yoga are palpable and infectious. Creative in sequencing, Susan’s style brings together elements of strength, flexibility and balance, encouraging students to break through their perceived limitations both on and off the mat. What began as a purely physical practice soon led Susan to discover the many spiritual and mental benefits of a well-rounded yoga practice.
With all her experiences nothing has inspired her as much as the practice of Service, for it is in those moments that she has discovered the essence of a pure life. It is through gratitude that she taps into the sense of inner calm and self-acceptance, and she encourages her students to do the same. “Don’t be afraid to shine, the world needs your light” – Gabby Bernstein
