DESCRIBE YOUR UNIQUE VALUE ADD AS A TEACHER. WHAT ABOUT YOUR STYLE MAKES YOU STAND OUT?
Suzanne's teachings encourage students to dissolve barriers, to dance and to move through an intelligent practice in order to restore and evolve on all levels. Her classes are devotional, dynamic and diverse… bold, mighty and introspective, weaving progressive sequencing, anchored in ancient teachings, and woven to attune to modern duty.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO TEACH?
Suzanne continues to feed and share her curiosity in life by studying with several highly esteemed scholars and teachers, including within Kashmir Shaivinism, Shamanic and Buddhist traditions. She continues to draw from all these sources in her own teachings.
