Meet Susanne:

Susanne Susanne started her journey into yoga 20 years ago in her home country of Germany, during her time working at a stressful corporate job. She noticed that within a short time she felt stronger and more flexible and most of all how the regular practice helped her with stress reduction and increased awareness to find peace and balance. Being so excited about the positive changes, she took a 2 year course in yoga and shiatsu therapy and left her corporate job to teach others these powerful techniques.  After moving to Canada, she continued her studies in yoga, reiki and Ayurveda. She is a Reiki Master and energy healer. Susanne is registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT (experienced yoga teacher). She regularly facilitates 200 hour yoga teacher training at Body to Bliss in Woodbridge. For Susanne yoga is a life style and a conscious choice to live a healthy, vibrant and purposeful life and an important tool to deal with stress and find inner strength.  Susanne’s passion is to share her knowledge and wisdom with her students, to guide them on a path to better health, to find peace, strength and focus within.
