Suzanne started Love Yoga in 2010 with the intention of inspiring others to ease pain and find joy through movement, stillness and awareness. The Love Yoga Training inspires others to do the same. From that program, a wonderful yoga community has evolved that does just that. They reduce stress, relieve tension, inspire laughter, create connections, share music and make friends. They encourage fitness, nutrition, relaxation and connection. But most of all they help spread the inspiration.
Suzanne’s classes are infused with humor, science, meditation and anatomy. Her classes present a challenging yet modest approach to the practice, encouraging each and every person to allow their strength and flexibility to build naturally while focusing on the qualities of mind that are the most beneficial to their overall wellbeing. Her practice began with a Seattle yoga workshop in 1992. She then went on to earn her 200 hour certification in Portland, Oregon; her 500 hour certification through Mark Stephens Yoga of Santa Cruz, CA. She has also completed the Off the Mat, Into the World training and the Strala Intensive Training with Tara Stiles and Mike Taylor of New York. She has also been strongly influenced by numerous trainings with Seane Corn, Leslie Kaminoff, David Williams, Paul Terrell of Yoga on Yamhill, Portland, OR, Udaya Yoga/Rudy Mettia of Los Angeles and Strala Yoga of New York. She continues to seek out every opportunity to grow and learn and bring more educators from the yoga industry to the Willamette Valley so that all the aspiring yoga instructors have more options to learn right here in the valley.
