My inspiration is to create a space where students feel safe and supported, feel a sense of inner peace, and enjoy the process of self-exploration.
My goal is to facilitate the healing powers of yoga & thai yoga bodywork accessible to people of all levels and abilities.

Since she was 3, Susan explored the disciplines of movement through dance, gymnastics, and swimming. After receiving her MFA at School of Visual Arts, her passion for movement expressed as body-oriented artworks that she exhibited worldwide. These early experiences and her fascination with human movement began evolving in an organic way into her own yoga practice. Susan turned her focus and energy towards her studies of mind-body-spirit practices and to find ways to share and teach others mechanisms that balance and harmonize everyday living in NYC through breath, movement, and awareness.
Susan certified as a prana yoga teacher at the 200 hour with Dr. Jeff Migdow and Pritii Robyn Ross, and deepened her understandings and range of teaching tools with certifications in Chair Yoga with Lakshmi Voelker, Thai Yoga Bodywork with Jonas Westring, and Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson-Lasater.
She is grateful to be in this moment, using all that she has to help empower others. Susan’s offerings provide a safe and nurturing environment, where students can deepen awareness of their natural energy flow while allowing the release and transformation of energy imbalances.

An ancient practice that blends body and energy healing leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
I have had a lot of Bodywork from all kinds of practitioners internationally and am particularly impressed with Susan’s Thai Yoga bodywork. Her knowledgeable and intuitive application was spot on. I know bodywork, this is a perfect blend of body and energy healing with a powerful over all result, personally I felt a good shift in previous painful areas – quite remarkable. I would absolutely recommend her work.

Susan has a no-nonsense approach to yoga. I don’t how else to put it: She knows her work, she knows how to share it, she is careful (as in care-full). You will trust her and she will lead you by following your needs. As I recently started going to classes that are more challenging, and having a regular home practice, I have also felt tension and some pain in my wrists and back. My private session with Susan allowed me to pause and have a new look at my practice, see things to be careful with, readjust and find a way to continue with less risk of injury and more possibility for truly following my own body and what is possible for me.

Mother of 2, artist, and physically active while I am working on a job site or in my studio. I often spend many hours on my feet doing repetitive movements. I had heard that Yoga would be good for some of the back pain I had been sporadically experiencing, but Yoga studios and group exercise classes felt intimidating. Alone at home, I use to watch the same DVD over and over again to try to learn yoga poses that might help my back. I knew I needed some guidance on how to do yoga in a way that is best for me. By working privately with Susan, I felt safe, and really got inside body awareness-how I am built. I gained knowledge in my mind,body,and breath and got all my questions answered in terms of yoga concepts, philosophy, and styles. Most of all I learned proper alignment of postures that was right for me. She noticed that my spine had a slight curve scolosis (I wore a back brace when I was a teenager but didn’t think about how it might affect me now). That said, no more DVD as I am more comfortable and confident and able to take group classes!
