Judit opens her heart and soul in her yoga classes taking care of everybody's individual needs, working mind body and spirit as a whole. Her classes consist of: asanas (postures), meditation, breathing techniques, inspirational readings that go beyond the yoga mat, and guided visualizations. Judit is also a Health Coach.

Susie Suarez

Susie practiced yoga on and off for several years before fully
committing to her practice in 2013. She completed her RYT 200-Hour
Certification in Vinyasa Yoga at Onyx in 2016 and has also discovered
a deep connection to the practice of Kundalini Yoga under the caring
instruction of Shannon Elliott and Ogden Kruger.

A licensed funeral director by trade, Susie has spent countless hours
serving people from all walks of life during times of tremendous pain
and vulnerability. These experiences have taught Susie how valuable
yoga can be as a tool for inviting self-love, healing, and an openness
to grace during life’s most challenging moments.

Susie’s approach to teaching yoga is loving and supportive, and her
classes encourage a sense of playful curiosity. Her instruction emphasizes alignment and safety within each pose, and modifications are always offered to help students meet themselves where they are. Susie believes that yoga is for every body and strives to help each student access their unique personal power through cultivating compassion, flexibility, and resilience -- both on and off the mat.

Susie feels deeply grateful for all her teachers past, present, and future, as well as for her fellow practitioners who continue to inspire her growth as both a teacher and a student.

“My practice has evolved so much over the years - through illness and injury, circumstance, and introspection. Yoga is with me every step of the way. It is an incredible gift to help others find this beautiful, lifelong practice that will benefit all aspects of life."

Yin Yoga is a simple, quiet, in-drawn practice that uses steady, long-held postures that benefit your “yin,” connective tissues, such as the fascia, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones. Poses are held 3 to 5 minutes each with all muscles relaxed and released.

Yin Yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, that aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence. It can be practiced by everybody and will complement an already active life or help those who feel distracted by “mind chatter”.

This practice calms the mind and nervous system, reduces stress and anxiety, increases circulation, improves flexibility and joint mobility, balances the internal organs and improves the flow of chi or prana through meridian stimulation.
