Suzanne began taking yoga classes with her mom at 15 years old. Then, yoga served as an opportunity to maintain her flexibility after transitioning away from dance. She continued yoga through undergrad at the University of Georgia and practices it now while pursuing a Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at UIUC. As a student, yoga has afforded Suzanne perspective and sanity in the midst of a hectic student lifestyle. Suzanne’s yoga practice has evolved over the years to mean many different things, yet it gives her exactly what she’s needing each time that she heads to her mat. Suzanne’s dance background provides her with a unique appreciation for movement and flow, which is why her favorite styles of yoga to practice are Vinyasa and Ashtanga. Through her practice, she hopes to show people that yoga is good for every person, and that there is a type of yoga suited for every body. Yoga is Suzanne’s playtime. In her classes, she brings a light heart and a smile so that her students feel like they too can have fun on their mats. She is a member of the inaugural class of graduates from Amara’s RYT-200 Teacher Training Program and has completed a 50-hr Ashtanga Primary Series Immersion. Suzanne is excited to teach to teach group classes at Amara.
