Susan is a certified yoga therapist with the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Her areas of expertise are bone health and mental health. Susan’s interest in osteoporosis comes from her own personal diagnosis. She wants to show others that this diagnosis doesn’t mean you have to stop moving, in fact, quite the opposite! With Susan’s help, you can learn how to move safely in a yoga class and in your everyday life while having osteoporosis or low bone density.

Susan’s work in mental health empowers people who are experiencing acute or chronic stress or anxiety, trauma, and other forms of nervous system dysregulation with knowledge and strategies to build nervous system resilience. She also works with individuals using a body-based approach to resolving symptoms of stress, shock, and trauma that accumulate in their bodies.

Yoga therapy involves the tailored use of yoga poses and movement, breathwork, meditation, mantra and affirmations, mudras (hand gestures) and other yoga-related tools in a therapeutic context.

Susan’s additional continuing education and certifications include:

  • Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher
  • Licensed facilitator of the Overcome! program
