Suzie’s emphasis on building a practice from a firm foundation creates a sense of security that results in a blossoming of openness, on the emotional as well as physical places. Pain from long-standing injuries from sports and work, has lessened by learning correct alignment, and recognizing and changing old patterns/ habits in my body that have developed over time. The pacing of her classes, the focus of correct alignment and the use of supported poses, allows the body and mind to move in harmony with one another.
