Vinyasa yoga, in which movement is synchronized to the breath, is a term that covers a broad range of yoga classes.
This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath acts as an anchor to the movement as you to flow from one pose to the next in time with an inhale or an exhale.
Sue is a certified Bikram yoga instructor who began practicing in the summer of 2006 to maintain her health and flexibility and to help with neck pain associated with a major automobile accident. After years of running, Sue found it difficult to find a form of exercise that was enjoyable, provided weight loss and other benefits, and was safe and comfortable following injury.
She completed the 500 hour Bikram Yoga training in Hawaii in the spring of 2007 and continues to further her education. She completed her 200 hour Vinyasa teacher training program at CorePower Yoga in Washington, DC. Sue is always studying yoga and taking classes to continue the yogic lifestyle that she loves.

(Professional Makeup Artist: Suzanne Eden)
$25 (includes materials fee)
10 3 spots available
A mom of a fifteen-year-old girl contacted Suzanne online and said… “I found you from looking into makeup classes for teens. I saw a ton of people who can do that, but your makeup just looked so clean. I don’t want my daughter to look too made up, just enhanced!” Suzanne was really flattered and it got her thinking about what a gift it would be for preteens and teenagers to learn how to care for their skin properly and wouldn’t it be great if they learned how to apply makeup in a tasteful and fun way without teaching themselves bad habits.
As a former teacher, Suzanne thought it was the perfect opportunity to start a new lesson program called #themakeupteacher. Her focus for this program is to teach preteens, teenagers, and adults proper skincare and gorgeous makeup that will accentuate their natural beauty instead of transforming or detracting from it. Suzanne offers professional tips in an accessible and fun way so that all age levels can follow along.
