Suzi’s yoga journey began when she found herself overweight, unhealthy and unhappy, so she began taking classes at a local fitness center. She found that yoga was exercise that she really enjoyed. Years later, she took classes at a yoga studio and realized yoga is so much more than a physical practice.
Suzi had suffered from severe chronic low back pain and found out that she had disc compression, degeneration and extrusion on her lumbar spine. With regular yoga practice (pranayama, asana and meditation) she has been able to manage her pain and overcome the mental attachment to her condition.
In 2011, Suzi enrolled in 200hr Teacher Training with Ally Ford at White Orchid Yoga. She practices Mysore with her teacher Calley Masson and has worked with Ally Ford, Sharon Denton, Greg Nardi and Lisa Schrempp. She has also worked with cancer patients at Florida Cancer Specialists as well as teaching classes for local businesses. She will always continue to expand her knowledge, understanding and her own practice through workshops. Suzi looks forward to sharing time on her mat alongside students and sharing this practice that she loves so much!
