Susan was born with a passion for helping others. She was introduced to Pilates as a means of cross training when she was a competitive swimmer looking for an edge. After receiving her bachelor’s degree from UC Santa Barbara, she returned to her native Orange County and earned her Pilates certification from Orange Coast College. Also an avid yogi, Susan blends the practices of Yoga and Pilates, creating new depths to the movements during her balanced and challenging workouts. The ability to share her love of fitness and wellness, and to celebrate with students as they achieve their goals are among the many reasons why she enjoys teaching. Outside the studio Susan likes to take her baby boy on bike riding adventures.
