Elin started Ballet lessons at age three and has been dancing ever since. She went on to study many other styles of dance including Jazz, Lyrical, Theater Dance, Highland Dance, Latin, Ballroom, Pole Dance and Bellydance. In 2008 Elin began practicing yoga and it became an important complement to her dancing – each discipline improving the other. This led her to become a 200HR RYT Vinyasa Yoga Instructor. Elin’s practice is built on an understanding of anatomy and alignment and seeks to create space, both in the body and the mind. Intrigued by the concept of combining elements of dance, yoga and aerial arts, she decided to try aerial fitness. Her feet left the ground and it was love at first flight! Elin enjoys the feeling of freedom and joyfulness that aerial yoga provides and is happy to share her love of being upside down. Elin is also an Om Factory Certified Aerial Yoga Instructor, Fly Gym Aerial Fitness® Instructor / Master Trainer, Climb&Spin® Pole Dance Instructor and Ballroom Dance Instructor.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHY WORK WITH SUSAN?
Susan’s work connects mind, body. and spirit. The cognitive work of spiritual practices like meditation are not always enough to unleash the full flowering of our awakened potential. Sometimes we also need to work through emotional and physical constrictions to clear our path to higher awareness. This is the nature of the work Susan can help you work through.
It is both her honor and passion when a student allows her to walk beside them on their path toward empowerment. Susan has deep gratitude and respect for these connections and entrusted relationships.
ARE ALL CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS HELD ONLINE?
WHAT IS SOMATIC YOGA, HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM OTHER FORMS OF YOGA?
Instead of stretching muscles, this modality utilizes the technique of pandiculation to reprogram muscles to their optimal length in a resting position. The restorative sequences, called Somatic Movement Flow™are ideal for unwinding stiffness, pain, and postural imbalances, and dramatically increase flexibility through brain-to-muscle re-education.
The movement patterns are gentle and appropriate for all levels of fitness experience. Somatic is not a traditional yoga class and we do NOT engage in yoga postures. The movement explorations are done on the floor, standing and/or in a chair.
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PSOAS?
When we misuse our psoas we can experience a host of dysfunction such as hip pain, low back pain, knee and ankle pain, shoulder dysfunction, breathing issues, digestive issues, female health issues, pelvic floor issues, even anxiety and a general feeling of unwell.
Susan works with clients in rehabilitating his/her psoas. The sessions dive deep into our centers hydrating the fascial system, connecting to bone, articulation of hip, knee, and ankle joint, while engaging and toning your psoas.
