Wine Professional CMS Level 1, WSET Level 2
Yoga Teacher E-RYT500, YACEP, Aromatherapist, Reiki Master
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 and Crystal Master, Aromatherapist, Ayurvedic Practioner, 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 & crystals 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.
Find your Fire ~ Ignite your Power
~ Love your Self
I believe that yoga is for every body and that you do yoga because you aren't flexible! That yoga is also intimidating, but it shouldn't be.
I believe that yoga is more than just an exercise, it is a way of life. It is a place to stop all of the "doing" that we do all day long. To give yourself a break from all of the thinking.
I believe that your life is happening NOW!
I believe in the ancient practice and philosophy of yoga. That the definition of yoga is to still the fluctuations of the mind. Not to improve your backside. (Although, if that happens... bonus!)I believe in the power of essential oils. I also believe your power resides within you. And you can reclaim it through yoga and essential oils. (Pssst... they're more than just a pretty smell.)I believe that the most important relationship you will ever have is the one you have with your Self. So, get to know your Self.Nurture your relationship with your Self. Reconnect with your Self.It is time.It is time to find your fire, to ignite your power, and to truly love your Self.
