MOVING ENERGY: Exploring the 5 Universal Principles of Alignment in Anusara Yoga



When applied to our asana practice, this elegant system of alignment refines our perception of our own life energy and allows us to move that energy (physical, mental and emotional) in meaningful and direct ways.

Saturday, September 16, 1-4pm: On Saturday we will use standing poses, hip openers and forward bends to investigate how these principles can help us to ground and release long held tension.

Sunday, September 17, 1-4pm: On Sunday we will explore how optimal alignment in arm balances and backbends reconnects us to our powerful centers, evoking the heart’s joyful unfolding.

$45 per day/$75 for the full weekend

Undoing the Office: Yoga for Strength and Flexibility



This 2-hour workshop provides you with effective Yoga, mindfulness, and muscle activation techniques to start freeing yourself from ‘office-hunch’ pain and stiffness from head to toe.

In a supportive, fun, and upbeat environment, Suzanne (aka ‘the Yoga Whisperer’) will help students explore how to:

  • Move your muscles and align your bones to alleviate the most common tight/weak areas (shoulder/neck; wrists; back; hips; legs)
  • Recognize these movements within the canon of classical Yoga poses
  • Customize classical Yoga poses for yourself
  • Safely transition between poses (sun salutations and other sequences)
  • Make your own ‘desktop’ exercises and modifications of Yoga poses for the office
  • Interweave basic breath and mindfulness techniques into your movement as well as your stillness

Suzanne Zuber (RYT 500), European-American yogini and international yoga instructor, has been fortunate to study in-depth asana, anatomy, therapeutics, and the various Yogic traditions and philosophies with world-renowned Hatha and Vinyasa teachers. With Noah Mazé, she earned her 300-hour Yogamazé teaching certificate during a year-long course of study in Berlin, focusing on Iyengar-based alignment Hatha and Vinyasa yoga. She is a graduate of the 200-hour Anusara-based yoga teacher training with Siri Peterson, Chrissy and Kenny Graham, and has further studied with Abby Tucker, Jim Bernaert, and Sianna Sherman. She has taught at various studios in Stockholm, Munich, and the Bay Area, and currently runs a yoga-program for students and teachers at the East Bay German International School (Emeryville).
