Susie has a BS Degree from San Diego State University in Kinesiology with a specialization in Fitness, Nutrition and Health. She also practiced as a Physical Therapy Assistant before starting to balance a healthy lifestyle with the demands of a young family. After years as a gymnast turned marathon runner, turned triathlete, Susie began her yoga practice in 2009. She quickly discovered a regular yoga practice could reduce stress, heal injuries and deepen her connection with what she valued most in life. After years of practice as a student, Susie was ready to take her yoga to the next level—as an instructor. She achieved her Yoga Sculpt Teacher Training certification through CorePower Yoga and has also completed training programs with SilverSneakers and Dynamic Systems Rehabilitation.
Whether creating custom classes for individuals with disabilities/injuries or facilitating group yoga classes, Susie draws upon her physical therapy background to create a fun and mindful practice for her students. Her love and passion for yoga shine through.
When Susie is not at the yoga studio she enjoys shorter runs, playing tennis, watching her son play baseball for MSU or relaxing in Maui.
