Suzanne took her first Hot Yoga class in Manhattan Beach, CA in 2011 at the age of 62. With that first yoga class came the passion and desire to teach. Growing up her background in traditional style Russian ballet led to a scholarship at the San Francisco School of Ballet as a teenager. But, on a completely different level, Yoga heals the spirit, soul and body. Something dance cannot claim as a benefit.
In 2014 as a first time participant, she placed third in the Senior Division of Washington Regional Asana Championships held by the USA Yoga Federation specializing in the demonstration of yoga asanas. (Participation was playfully on her bucket list) She holds two 200 hour teaching certificates in Hatha Yoga and regularly attends advanced training workshops.
Suzanne is light hearted, exciting, fun and a passionate instructor with a desire to share the many priceless benefits of yoga leading to a healthier lifestyle and a happy life.
