In her classes and private sessions Suzanne shares with great enthusiasm her passion for movement and anatomy that is based on her extensive knowledge from a lifetime of studying and practicing movement.
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. Years later when rehabilitation was needed from a dancing injury, I found Pilates. Pilates picked me up when I was weak and literally kicked me in the butt to catapult me into new beginnings.
I then left dancing and 18 years ago became a teacher of Movement and I now love the diversity of studying, practicing and teaching Pilates, Yoga, the GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® method. HARA Beyond Movement Studio was created to share my love of teaching all things BODY MIND SOUL. To me, it feels like Pilates is a foundation that keeps my feet on the ground and strengthens my core. The GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® method open up energy pathways for ease of movement and freedom while Yoga is a higher connection that allows me to keep it all together, live in peace with integrity to myself and others.
