My classes are in the Hatha Vinyasa style of yoga, focusing on a process of warming up the body, stretching, strengthening, and then cooling down and relaxing.

There are many ways to accomplish this, and it can be slow and easy, or more challenging, depending on the students’ needs and energy level.

The common thread that weaves it together is to relax the busy mind and bring a calm, inward thought process to your movements.

I completed my 200-hour teacher training with ShivaShakti School of Yoga and Healing Arts in 2015 and I am continuing my training with them to secure my 500-hour certification.

I am also certified in prenatal yoga, and Yin yoga, a meditative practice that includes longer held postures to work with connective tissues, increasing range of motion, and opening joints.

I am a firm believer that yoga is for everybody, and look forward to sharing this healing practice with you.

 

Sue’s Classes

Morning Flow & Meditation Wednesdays at 8:15 AM

This flow class will begin with pranayama breath work and brief meditation to open the energy body and quiet the mind. We will move into mindful asana flow practice, creating some warmth in the body, with a focus on staying present without judgment or expectations. The last part of our time includes a guided 15-minute meditation and savasana.

Yin Flow Yoga Thursdays at 8:15 AM

The class will begin with 45 minutes of a warming vinyasa flow, waking the body up and connecting breath with movement. We will transition into 30 minutes of Yin yoga, a cooling, passive practice of longer held poses that work with connective tissues, fascia, and joints. The Yin style draws from traditional Chinese medicine, to open meridians in the body and enhance the flow of Chi (life force energy). This class is the perfect balance of movement and stillness to begin your day.

Gentle Flow Yoga Thursdays at 4:15 PM

The best way to practice yoga is with a beginners mind; a blank slate, with no expectations, no judgments, and a willingness to surrender. In Gentle Flow, we will begin with warming up the body, and then mindfully move through a mix of standing and seated poses, focusing on the mind/body connection and awareness of the breath. We end with cooling supine poses and resting in savasana. Everything can be modified to work for your body so that the practice meets you right where you are. Students will leave the class rejuvenated, centered, and ready to face the upcoming day.
