After taking some time for motherhood and practicing yoga with her boys, she
dedicated herself to yoga once again with an open heart, realizing yoga's
powerful ability to integrate the mind, body and spirit. Suzette wanted to
learn more about yoga and how to share it with others, resulting in her 200
hour certification in 2009 from Lotus Gardens Yoga. Suzette teaches from the
heart. Her personal practice is thoughtful and honest, and her intention is to
create that same environment for her students. Her classes are open to all
levels. Students are guided through a series of yoga postures to warm the
body with attention to alignment, followed by floor work for deeper stretches
and mindful relaxation. She continues to deepen her practice by attending
workshops, and by practicing at home and in studios. Suzette's other interests
include reading, cooking, and lying in savasana.
