Susan Stewart:

Susan Stewart has been a dedicated student of the body since completing massage school in 1993.  She brings warmth and joy with skillful guidance to each lesson.

An active lifestyle led her to the Pilates method to support personal wellbeing while living in Alaska. She completed comprehensive Pilates certification through Power Pilates under the guidance of Bob Liekens and Susan Moran in 2004.

Continual interest in movement led her to the Gyrotonic method and becoming a licensed Gyrotonic trainer in 2010. She has since trained to teach GYROKINESIS® excercise as well as the full repertoire of specialized apparatus with the Gyrotonic Leg Extension Unit, Jumping Stretch Board, GYROTONER®, and Archway.

Susan is also trained as a level 1 Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher through 3HO.

Each method offers opportunity for students to inhabit their body and live with greater ease, strength, coordination, flexibility, and integration of body and mind.

Susan enjoys yoga, cycling, gardening, and bee keeping in addition to a personal practice of Gyrotonic exercise and Pilates.
