What sets this certification apart

 

Traditional Approach

It’s very traditional in its approach to teaching and practicing yoga. That means it focuses on much more then asana practice! We will delve deep into the practices and teachings found in ancient texts like the Vedas, Yoga Sutras and the Hatha Yoga Pradipika. These practices and teachings have stood the test of time and are truly immortal.  

 

Practice Teaching

Since you are becoming certified to teach yoga, practice teaching is a big part of this training. Getting comfortable clearly expressing what you want students to do is important in becoming a good teacher. Learning to both carefully observe students and help them make adjustments in their practice to create more balance, ease, strength, and proper alignment is essential for a teacher. Just as we know the value of practicing asana, practicing teaching is a critical part of you finishing this certification confident in your ability to teach in your community. There is a big difference between being able to practice asana yourself and effectively teach a class!  A conscientious, enthusiastic, coachable student, typically makes a good teacher!

 

Opportunities

We will focus on how we can use yoga to positively impact our lives and create a richer, more meaningful experience of balance, vitality, and peace by including the deeper practices of pranayama, meditation, chanting, mantra and ceremony. If you just want to deepen your own understanding of yoga and enhance your personal practice, you are welcome to dive in with less focus on actually teaching.

 

Ayurveda

A basic understanding of yoga’s sister science, Ayurveda, is given in this certification.  The idea is to be able to use these two paths to support each other and understand how we are creating imbalances and what to do to address them.  We will carefully look at your diet as a way to purify the body and create more balance and harmony in your life. 

 

Individual Attention

The class size is no more then 8 students to create an intimate experience of support and individual attention, lots of sharing, and an opportunity to experience the deep bonds that develop from this shared experience. We will also begin a deeper exploration of the Mother Consciousness and how to develop a more expansive awareness of it in healing ourselves and our lives. 

 
 

Here’s what people are saying

“Suzanne is a goddess. She is a healer, teacher, and true yoga practitioner…and I’m not talking just asana. She embodies all of yoga, or union. Her knowledge of the fundamentals of yoga is unmatched and years of immersion and study of yoga have enabled her to impart wisdom on her students that is unmatched by anyone around. Yoga is truth, yoga is journey, yoga is to be practiced with dedication. Suzanne is the most dedicated yoga practitioner I know and she is a MASTER at her craft. If you attend her yoga class, you are in for an experience - one with much thought and effort (though it seems effortless). She is brilliant! She will constantly challenge your thoughts and open your mind to things you didn’t know were possible.”
— Lindsay S
“This is an amazing experience. Suzanne was the perfect teacher/guru and teaches the whole yoga experience. History, spirituality, physical and had tons of personal experiences to draw from and share. I couldn’t have had a more fulfilling experience. So glad I found this gem.”
— Linda A
“Yoga teacher trainings with Suzanne was one of the most heart opening experiences of my life. Not only is she extremely knowledgable and an excellent yoga teacher, she brings the experience to a completely different level through her intuition and healing. Yoga teacher training completely changed my life, my outlook on life and how I process life’s obstacles. I highly recommend Suzanne’s class to anyone, even if you are not sure you want to teach, it is well worth the investment in yourself.”
— Beth S
“Talk about grit and passion…in the best sense of it. Suzanne has it! She lives her yoga and beliefs. Suzanne incorporates her incredible intuition and in-depth knowledge of yoga to create a unique experience for her students adapting the practice to the needs her students. The time I spent with her certainly shaped and changed the way I live my life today. I enjoyed the group setting, the depth and variety of study/assignments and friendships that developed among fellow students. I felt well prepared to teach my first yoga class. I will forever be grateful to Suzanne for her guidance, teaching and intuitive insight.”
