Suzie first discovered yoga in search of solace after the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City and was blessed to meet her lifelong teacher, the legendary master Sri Dharma Mittra. In 2008, Suzie, an elementary school teacher, enrolled in her first 200-Hour Teacher Training at the Dharma Yoga Center in New York City. After completing the training, she began her service as a karma yogi, and eventually began working and teaching at the Dharma Yoga Center, where she developed the Dharma Kids program and taught everything from basic courses to advanced asana classes. For years, she traveled with Sri Dharma, assisting him at workshops and retreats around the country.

A lifelong student, Suzie has completed the 200, 500, & 800-hour Life of a Yogi teacher trainings with Sri Dharma Mittra. In 2014 she completed another 200-hour teacher training with Jared McCann, world asana champion and creator of JMY Vinyasa. She currently teaches and assists in developing the curriculum for the Science of Self Teacher Training program.
