About this pro

I'm new to teaching but have been doing yoga 🧘🏽 for more than 20 years. With a love for HIIT πŸƒ and a first-degree black belt in mixed martial arts πŸ₯‹, I can weave elements of these complementary disciplines into yoga sequences to give you a truly unique experience and a great workout. (I hope you like to sweat! πŸ˜…) Customized lessons are available if you want that ultra-personalized attention. In-person and/or virtual sessions are available. I'm open to teaching single people 🧘🏾 or small groups 🧘🏻🧘🏿🧘🏼. Let's discuss!

  • Mary Ann Sinclair

    Suzanne is both level-headed and inspirational -- she is quick to offer alternative approaches to difficult (for me) yoga poses and can think of different ways to describe them if need be. I come away from her classes feeling expanded, both in body and mind, and very calm.

  • Rebecca Klein

    Suz is focused on making sure she gets facts about any information she's sharing. She never hesitates to ask questions about any topic so she can completely understand it herself before sharing it others. No matter the subjects being discussed, she listens and learns. Her sense of humor can lighten up any room and she will make anyone feel comfortable around her presence.

  • Melissa Larsen

    Very interactive and the responsiveness is timely. Suzanne is knowledgeable in Yoga and was very good with clear, specific instruction to me. Her class was well thought out and the transition from one posture to another was natural. She gave me modifications when she saw I needed it and I was able to talk through any challenges I was having during our class. She is extremely professional and was responsive to my questions dueing class. I look forward to doing other classes with Suzanne leading me. Very comfortable with the expectation at the start of our session. Take a class and see for yourself!

  • Erin Edwards

    She’s inspiring, encouraging by being an example, a leader, and an equal! She’s an exceptional human being as well as an educated teacher that demonstrates the willingness to learn!! Fun and empowering to be in her classes!! Student and RYT! Forever grateful Erin Edwards!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We'll have an initial (FREE) consultation via email/phone call/webchat to discuss client needs and preferences. If we decide to work together, I'll provide additional info to the client and do a form intake survey and liability waiver.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

20+ years of doing yoga. Certified yoga teacher (CYT-200, registered with the Yoga Alliance). First-degree black belt in mixed martial arts. Experience in TRX/HIIT.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Pricing is available on my website. https://www.berealwell.com/classes


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all kinds of students: newbies to advanced, fit to just getting started on their wellness journey, younger to older, male and female, backgrounds in several genres of yoga, people in good health and those with current or past injuries/health conditions. It runs the gamut. This is why we do an initial consultation and intake process.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

As we're in lockdown...does getting new earbuds count as an event?

If not, we went on a walk to the park a few days ago and saw a tree with about 10 squirrels running up down around it and each other. It was wild. I never saw anything like it! I love little critters, so this definitely a highlight of recent times.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Talk to the instructor. Having good rapport is critical. You're going to be spending vulnerable and valuable time together so you gotta make sure the energy is right and the teacher can meet your unique needs/preferences.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Make a list of:

Your health issues/injuries/etc. that might impact your lessons.

Your goals for the lessons, both in the short-term and the long-run.

Things you've liked/disliked in past lessons.
