Susan Merritt, the founder and director of Body & Soul, has been teaching Yoga for 33 years. Her training is strongly based on the Iyengar system of Hatha Yoga, which has given her a gift of working well with people with injuries and those needing individual attention. Her classes are a synthesis of anatomy, alignment, and awareness.

Susan offers:

- Yoga classes at Body & Soul (see schedule below)

- Movement Made Accessible private sessions (a gentle exercise class for people with stroke, Parkinson's, head trauma, or other disabilities)

- Private sessions customized for individuals or groups (contact Susan)
