Suzi took her first yoga class in 1984 at the Santa Monica YWCA while taking classes at Santa Monica College. She was looking for a way to find a sense of calmness and focus while keeping up with her studies and busy school schedule. After two years at Santa Monica College, Suzi transferred to University of Southern California Dental School to study Dental Hygiene. She graduated in 1987 and began her professional Dental Hygiene career.
In 1999, Suzi moved to Playa del Rey and started taking classes at a local yoga studio and worked out often at a nearby gym. In 2007, she attended the Yoga Works 200-hour teacher training in Santa Monica studying with senior teachers Annie Carpenter and Birgette Kristin. Following training, Suzi volunteered at the Santa Monica YMCA for six months, teaching beginners. Over the last three years, Suzi has taught a blend of Hatha classes integrating Iyengar techniques focusing on the correct alignment with the use of props. She has taught classes at Body Wellness in Santa Monica and Curves in Westchester. She also teaches private clients in the Los Angeles area.
Suzi shares her enthusiasm for good health and well being in her yoga classes, by placing emphasis on breathing and movement to heal the body. She is great with beginners and intermediate students of all ages.
