Susi Willis

Yoga has something for everyone and every body type. Wherever you are in your own personal yoga journey, there is always something to learn about yourself in a class.

Susi’s teaching goal for the class is to honor where students are, and to create a container to give enough space to turn down the “noise” of everyday life and be able to listen to their inner voice. In addition, the class is a place to connect with the breath and the beauty of the flow.

Susi began her yoga practice in 2012, started teaching in 2015 and completed the 200-hour RYT Yoga Alliance teacher training certification from Sanctuary For Yoga in 2016. Susi has had varying mediation practices for the last 30 years and loves how Vinyasa Flow marries the movement of yoga with the breath. She has been particularly influenced and inspired by her teachers;Danny Brewington, Thomas Hübl, Daphne Larkin and Shannon Paige. An eager student of the teachings, Susi is working to complete her 500-hour teacher program at Sanctuary, as well as the Anjali Provider Certification in 2017. Off the mat, Susi is a Leadership and Organizational Development Consultant. She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from The Ohio State University and is a Certified Transformational Facilitator and ACC certified coach with the International Coaching Federation.
