Suzy was born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the beautiful Land of Enchantment. Surrounded by seemingly endless skies and immersed in nature at 7500 ft., her love of being in the elements has been a lifelong affair. Her curiosity of movement began at an early age first in gymnastics, then dance for many years. Suzy's deep connection to movement eventually led her to yoga in 2008. Suzy took Billy Goldman's classes at Richard Freeman's former studio, The Yoga Workshop in Boulder, Colorado, one of the oldest ashtanga studios in the United States.
Suzy and her husband Neil moved to the Big Island in October, 2017 and live on a 14 acre coffee and avocado farm in South Kona. Suzy completed her RYT 200 certification in March, 2018 at Kalani Oceanside through Yoga Centered, east side of Hawaii’s first yoga school. Suzy continued her studies and received her certification in Yoga S.A.F.E. (Sustainable & Safe Adaptations of Yoga for EveryBODY) through Soma Yoga Institute in November, 2018. Suzy has worked with Jim Bennitt, co-owner of Tejas Yoga in Chicago and Tantric Vinyasa Teacher influenced by ParaYoga, Universal Yoga, the Himalayan Institute, and the Krishnmacharya Lineage, attending several of Jim's annual yoga retreats. Most recently, Suzy completed her Barre Above® instructor certification in March, 2019. Blending these trainings, Suzy teaches a variety of classes and offers a dynamic experience for every level of student.
Suzy teaches in North & South Kona. She offers weekly classes and is also available for private one-on-one yoga sessions, small group sessions, and corporate trainings.
