Susan Fauman is an artist, yoga instructor, jewelry-maker and ayurvedic lifestyle educator. She doesn't think we have to be dark-and-twisty OR lovey-lighty to be profound.
Susan teaches women how to connect with their intuition and with cycles of nature to rediscover their innate wisdom. Her goal is to inspire you to be carried away by the wonder and poetry of Nature but still make it back in time to cook dinner.

Get to know me:
DESCRIBE YOUR UNIQUE VALUE ADD AS A TEACHER. WHAT ABOUT YOUR STYLE MAKES YOU STAND OUT?
My yoga teaching is completely grounded in my studies of Ayurveda and, in particular, the 5 elements. My style continually points my students toward their sensations and experience within their own bodies.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTENTION IN BEING A PART OF THE LOCAL COLLECTIVE OF GATHERYOGA?
I want to offer deep practices which are personal and yet universal because they point us toward our own, individual experience, while helping us to recognize universal patterns in Nature. I want to take some of the anxiety out of home practice and help students feel connected to something larger than themselves even as they may practice alone.
WHAT FIRST BROUGHT YOU TO THE MAT?
Dance…but at first it was just part of dance classes. Then I was hit by a car and forced to retrain my body how to move correctly.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO TEACH?
Sharing the space of sadhana and touching something ineffable together with my students helps me remember our fundamental connectedness and inspires me to be more relaxed, forgiving and expansive. I love to help people open the door to their own, inherent knowing.
