"Suzanne digs deep into herself to offer the highest, and demands the same introspection, depth and radical honesty from her students. Suzanne's knowledge is vast and detailed -- from her knowledge and expertise in psychology and therapeutics, to her understanding of bio-energetics, anatomy and philosophy. Most importantly, she has her finger on the pulse of each student-teacher's unique strength, and does her best to nurture that while compassionately trimming out any unhelpful habits or inhibitions. She is a teacher's teacher for sure and I would jump at the opportunity to learn from her again in a second."
