Meet Susan Barber: Susan Barber ERYT began her yoga journey 23 years ago when she fell in love with classical Ashtanga yoga studying with her first and primary teacher Beryl Bender Birch. She spent 5 years training to become a teacher of yoga, traveling to India to immerse herself in the culture of the ancient tradition and spending time at Swami Satchidananda’s Ashram. Susan taught internationally for 18 years in Singapore, Bahrain and Europe, including several years in Germany working with Wounded Warriors and those healing from trauma. After spending 3 years teaching full time in the NYC area, Susan has returned to her home state of Virginia where she will continue to offer group classes, private sessions and workshops. As a Certified Massage Therapist, Susan understands the body and how it works and brings this knowledge into her teaching. Her classes are traditional and alignment based while encouraging students to adapt the practice to their own bodies and unique needs — strong, steady and mindful!
