Susanna Schroadter

Susie began her career as an attorney, but early on developed an interest in Mediation, where individuals are able to help themselves find solutions to conflict. She quickly found a correlation between conflict resolution, general wellness, and a healthy lifestyle, and soon began her yoga practice. Susie learned Yoga is not simply a means of staying in shape, but a method to decrease stress and increase balance in her everyday life. She has found an internal dedication to bringing this awareness to all individuals. Her classes are led with specific instructions linking breath with movement, effecting a balance of mental centering, physical strengthening and overall body stretching.
The beginners class is for those who are new to yoga and more experienced practitioners that are looking to deepen their experience with the basics. Basic breathing techniques and poses will be taught in a gentle and welcoming environment.
