Suzanne’s story began at age 3: “My life has always been about movement, beginning with a childhood love of ballet that continued through a 12 year dance career in Europe. During ballet training, I discovered yoga as a way to promote my flexibility and strength. Yoga eventually became my haven from career and life pressures.”
