Suzanne Marquardt Biography
“I remember that blissful feeling after my first yoga class wondering how I could feel so alive and content in all that I had in that moment when just before the class I felt so unsure of my life’s path. I didn’t understand it at the time I just knew that I wanted to keep feeling that way… so I continued to practice. My yoga journey has been a central focus of my life for several years and I continue to discover my own potential through a daily yoga practice. The addition of yoga to my life awarded me far greater flexibility, balanced strength and personal awareness. I am grateful and privileged to be able to share my life’s passion with others.”
