Susan Cannon

Susan is passionate about sharing her love of yoga as she has experienced first hand how life changing a regular yoga practice can be. She discovered yoga at age 14 but started delving deeper when she discovered a regular Ashtanga yoga practice seven years ago with Maryanne Abdulhadi. The empowerment we find through the present moment experiences of feeling the body can improve quality of life. Although she loves all yoga, the Ashtanga method of breath, locks and gaze was the tool that helped her practice and live from the inside to the outside.
