Nourishment for your body…peace for your mind…
When I first stepped into a yoga studio I was kind of a mental mess.
I felt like a person clinging to a rock in the middle of a fast moving river. I needed stress relief in a big way, and some time just for me.
I found relief in the hour and 15 minutes of just breathing and moving my body and letting that be enough.
If you can breathe, you can do yoga.
In my classes, I like focus on conscious breathing and intentional movement. Breath work is one of my favorite parts of a complete practice and I love to incorporate pranayama (conscious breathing) into the class because it makes all the difference! I encourage students to explore their edge in the asanas, finding that point, and not pushing past it.
A yoga practice not only helps you feel better physically; your energy flow becomes smoother, steadier. And, since your head is attached to your body, clear, calm, non reactive thinking is the beautiful result.
Just as you wouldn’t sit down at a piano for the first time and and play a concerto, yoga is a practice. We start right where we are and compassionately go forth. My job is to support you in this practice, and it is my honor to do so.
Strengthen and support the body, rest and release the busy mind.

The power of being outside in nature is healing and nourishing, and here in the White Mountains we are surrounded by beauty in every season.
I love yoga and hiking and meditation, and I love even more to combine them whenever possible!
I am really looking forward to sharing the healing practice of yoga with you!
Namaste! ~ Sue
