My journey into yoga began about ten years ago. At the time I was living in NYC working as a model. My work left me feeling empty inside, I knew there was more. I was drawn to learn about yoga and began studying and practicing at the Integral Yoga Institute. Soon after that I returned to Michigan and began practicing daily. Right away I recognized the many benefits of yoga. I then took a teacher training course and immersed myself in various styles of yoga including: Ashtanga, Kundalini and Bikram. I have also been trained in Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. Soon after, I began teaching yoga to kids ranging in ages from 3-13. Last summer I walked into the Yoga Shelter; it didn’t take long for me to realize what a treasure was awaiting inside. I completely connected on all levels with what was happening at The Shelter and the type of yoga that was being taught, Sanga Yoga... Community, exactly what I was looking for. I am so grateful for the teachings of Eric and Lisa. I have always been a seeker, looking for more understanding in life. I continue to learn and grow each day. When life’s greatest challenges come up, practicing yoga has helped me to remember who I am and walk with a little more grace. I look forward to sharing with you. Namaste


Suzanne Awan instructs the following:
  • Fusion
  • Fusion is heated, a blend of flowing and holding. Create internal heat with sun salutations then the class shifts to a slower pace, holding postures. Recommended for students with some yoga experience.

  • Slow Flow
  • Slow Flow is for those looking to experience a physically slower moving class.  We will be holding postures that cover the entire body and focusing on the breath which will help to create a supple and toned body.  This class is soft and smooth but always challenging.
