Susan has practiced yoga for over twenty-two years and is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance at the 500 hour level.
Susan’s stressful career as a CPA led her to the benefits of yoga. She reduced her work hours for her baby daughter, and in 2002, received her teacher’s certification from the Florida Institute for Integrated Yoga Studies (FIFIYS) in Tampa. Through FIFIYS, she has studied with internationally known teachers such as Nischala Joy Devi, creator of Yoga of the Heart, and the faculty from the Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation in Bangalore, India.
In 2004, Susan received her yoga therapist’s certification from Integrative Yoga Therapy, where she developed an in-depth understanding of yoga therapeutics for a wide variety of needs and conditions.
Susan earned her Associates Degree in Ayurvedic Clinical Consulting and Aromatherapy Certification through the Florida Vedic College and Ayurvedic Center for Well Being in Sarasota, Florida. Upon graduation in 2007, she created Yoga Flow Essential Oils, where she sells fine quality oils and creates ayurvedic healing blends.
Susan is a member of Yoga Alliance, International Association of Yoga Therapists and the Alliance of International Aromatherapists as well as being managing director of Suncoast Yoga Teachers Association.
“Part of our ‘old home’ was converted into studios, which are ideal for private yoga lifestyle consultations. Bordered by a natural wooded setting, our rooms are filled with soft colors, antique lighting and the scent of essential oils. The house is located on nearly an acre of land, close to the city yet still a peaceful and calming environment.”
