Suzann Johnson

Suzann is Certified to teach the following BYNT Classes:

  • Bikram Method 60, 90 and Silent
  • Yin Yoga

How long have you been practicing Bikram Yoga?
I began practicing in 2001.

When/Where did you graduate from Bikram Yoga teacher training?
Hawaii 2007

Why did you decide to become a teacher?
Hawaii of course! Actually, I don’t remember deciding, it all just happened. I would like to say it was to help other people, but the “other people” have been the ones that have helped me. Each day I am surrounded by caring, determined, and inspiring people and I am always learning something from our students.

What is your favorite thing about teaching?
All my friends come here to visit me at work. People come here to heal themselves, have less pain and feel better. As a teacher I actually get to see people change their lives. I get to be inspired by that every day.

What is your favorite quote?
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi

Is there anything else?
At the front desk I often hear people say that they want to “get into shape” before starting Bikram Yoga, but the best thing to do is just start. This is a beginner series and EVERYONE gets benefit. If you need to rest, you just rest. If you can’t do the whole class that is fine, each day you do a little more. You have to give yourself a chance to heal.
