"Suzie was one of my first yoga teachers as I started this journey many years ago. She is one of the best teachers I have ever encountered and believe me when I say that I have taken a class or two in the last few years. Her knowledge and expertise in the fitness industry, the health sciences and interpersonal communication is admirable. Suzie is a true Guru and I am honored to have studied with her"
