About the Instructor
Suzanne Blackwell (YAA, David Swenson TT-40 hrs, Doug Swenson YA TT-500 hr, & Calm-Steady-Strong TT).
The class is being taught by Suzanne Blackwell, a yoga & fitness instructor who took specialized training with Susi Hately-Aldous to teach this course (Susi is a kinesiologist in Calgary who developed the original Yogathrive program; pilot study results published in the Journal of Psycho-Oncology).
Suzanne was inspired to take the training by witnessing the amazing resilience, fortitude, and courage of students in her “regular classes” who were going through (or completed) cancer treatment or were impacted by the treatment of a loved-one!
