“I believe that your yoga practice is just that – yours. You are free to make it what you want and you will get back exactly what you put into it. Yoga can be used for self-discovery, mental clarity, spirituality or simply to strengthen and stretch the body. Your practice is yours and yours alone – I am simply here to help guide you and help you find what you need. For me, yoga is both a path to self awareness and a service to others.”

Yoga Instructor Suzanne Even

Suzanne’s teaching style offers a blend of Hatha, Vinyasa and Bhakti styles of Yoga along with a focus on postural alignment. She holds B.S. degree in Health and Human Science and is a Certified Holistic Health Coach as well as a Certified Reiki Practitioner.

Having always been passionate about wellness on every level, Suzanne sought tools that would lead to the balance of a healthy mind, body and soul. She learned through my own challenges and setbacks that through a consistent and committed Yoga practice this balance could be achieved.

By embracing the philosophy and soulful teachings of Yoga, she was able to experience and express those thoughts and feelings through the physical postures.

Suzanne creates the space and offers instruction in her classes and private sessions for students to explore and express what they learn through their own Yoga practice. She guides students in developing better body awareness and safe postural alignment as well as in improving their strength and mobility. In addition, students can experience an introspective awareness and inner growth through healing chants,profound breathing exercises and a philosophical focus.

Her goal is to help everyday people get grounded in their life and their bodies, by teaching them different ways of training their bodies. She recognizes the need to bridge the gap between fitness and health, and aims to do so through her yoga teachings.
