Susan Tiffany Yoga has been a part of Susan’s life for over 20 years; her practice has helped her grow stronger, more flexible and fearless both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires Susan to live each moment fully and mindfully.
Susan discovered yoga after a series of challenging back issues involving neuropathy, lingering pain and surgery. Unwilling to settle on a life filled with pain medication, Susan found the mat (and aerial hammock). It took several months of classes as her practice developed and simultaneously the alleviation of pain became apparent and lasting. As years moved on and her career at Easton Montessori School came to a close Susan went on to complete her RYT200 training at Kripalu. Susan later completed trainings and certifications in trauma-sensitive yoga, Reiki, aerial yoga, Warriors at Ease, yoga & meditation for abuse and trauma, and most recently Level 1 iRest Yoga Nidra. Susan continues to pursue education in yoga and the healing arts and is deeply grateful for the loving wisdom her teachers have shared with her.
