SuZanna learned hatha yoga from her Aunt Christina at age 9. This began her path toward learning and self discovery. Suffering from eating disorders and numerous physical issues have made her a walking testament to what yoga, nurturing food and self care can accomplish. Two foot surgeries spurred her on to getting her Reflexology Certification and since 1998 she has become a proficient therapist. Her degrees in Psychology and Education plus numerous transformational trainings helped create the backbone for her coaching career from the 70's to 90's. Becoming certified in Aroma Therapy (now 14 degrees) inspired her to create products for healing, offering them now worldwide.
Training at both Integral Yoga and Kripalu for yoga and dance rounded out her passions. SuZanna is an E-RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance. In October 2013 she studied with S. Hitzman, becoming certified in The MELT Method. Her commitment to continuing her studies to help support her clients and herself out of chronic pain is continual passion.
Her teachers are engaged in getting up-to-date certificates in their discipline and they work to practice what they preach. They are "real", accessible, engaging and supportive. They hold themselves to the strictest requirements for knowledge and "heart" so that you can rest easy and feel safe while you participate in any of the classes offered @ Z's Body & Soul.
The setting of a 1918 home, on almost 3/4 of an acre in downtown Stanwood, WA makes one curious. Step into Z's Body & Soul @ 9504 271st St and you feel at home.
Warm and welcoming, non-judgemental and relaxing is how students and clients speak of their experience. There are over 40 Locally made products devoted to your healing, both physical and emotional. Heat-able wraps, both for necks and backs are available to experience and purchase. Z makes her own line of blends for diffusers, plus massage oils and lotions.
The grounds have a lavender and willow garden (created by friend and student, Ursula Andrews). We are continuing to grow; foliage graces the property seasonally and we now offer a larger lower studio for many classes. All are welcome.
