I'm currently offering a variety of weekly yoga classes that are open to the public at the beautiful PranaShanti Yoga Centre, located at 950 Gladstone Avenue, Ottawa.

Private yoga therapy is for individuals who want to explore yoga as a way to address a specific health
condition or challenge. Sessions are tailored to the needs of the individual client and address
”I had the good fortune of working with Susan privately in my home. This was invaluable to me as I needed help but was anxious at the thought of leaving the house some days. Being in my home removed a difficult barrier for me. Susan is an excellent instructor because she's compassionate, and not judging. This allowed me to feel comfortable giving her honest feedback. This in turn allowed Susan to adapt the program to my needs, which was integral to my success. The tools and practices I learned really helped me get through my difficult days. Of course, the gift of yoga is that these tools can be used in everyday living whether I'm anxious or not.” (C.D.)
"Thanks for this great working document on my yoga therapy program. I feel so special to know that you've really tailored this for my needs...I know: that's the point, but it's the difference between bespoke tailoring and off-the-rack, right? (M.M)
"I was going to write as soon as I got home to say what a powerful and energizing time I had with you. How did the time slip away? Yet, I found it most productive...an organic approach to reveal the layers to work with, I'd say." (M.M.)
Clinics & Workshops are a perfect way to take a "deeper dive"
into a specific area of interest or need. There are two clinics coming up this fall.
