“Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch”
— Walt Whitman
H2yOga Creator, Head Instructor
NJ -> NY -> LONDON -> LA
Sue's been teaching yoga for over a decade, and the H2yOga practice she created since 2010. In that time, she's taught well over 10,000 classes on land and in the water. Since its inception, Sue has expanded her original "floating yoga" concept into 12 class styles (including 3 prenatal) and developed an extensive vocabulary of exercises to help practitioners achieve their individual goals, including pregnancy, weight loss, improved balance, MS, Parkinsons, RA, fibro, injury recovery, special needs, and has helped clients recover from surgery, and just as often, avoid surgery completely.
This energetic power house is rooted in strong technique. With H2yOga, Sue combines her Training in Vinyasa Flow and Power Yoga, with Passion for water-friendly Kundalini-Style Movement, Dance, Gymnastics, Pilates, 9+ years of experience working with the water.
Her one-of-a-kind Method is grounded in her Movement Training as a Performer, incorporating Circular Movement and Tension Release Principles from Williamson and Alexander Techniques, and Spacial Balance, Awareness and Physical Story-Telling from her mentor, Joe Hart. Like Krav-Maga, H2yOga is an ever-evolving animal. Sue transforms this practice continuously incorporating new skills, techniques, and ideas. As her students evolve and grow, as their needs change, her practice evolves for them.
