Do you want to be of service in the world? I’ll show you how. Join me this Friday!

I’m guessing that many of you are like me. You want to make a significant difference in the world. You want to feel good in your body, mind and heart so that you can show up in life and do your best. You want to engage with the world (at the supermarket, at work, at home) with mental clarity and equanimity. You want to be courageous and truly authentic. Is this true for you?

I struggled from a past full of fear and abuse and then transformed my life to one of service. Yoga began as a curiosity, as a way to heal my back pain and to be fit and healthy. But then it helped me transform from being a victim to living an authentic life. Studying yoga, meditation and Ayurveda has been a total life-changer for me. I’d like to share with you what I’ve learned.

Once a year, I offer a 10-month yoga intensive for a small thoughtful group. I welcome all body sizes and abilities. My program is about healing the body, taming the mind, living a fulfilled life and being of service in the world.

After taking my 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training Program & Intensive, called Yoga Awakenings, some decide to teach yoga. Most use the rich tradition of skills and solutions so that they can be better people in the world.

If you’d like to take the journey, then hurry. We start this coming Friday.

Here are your action steps:

Namaste + love,

Suzanne

Inside: My secret to a calm, fulfilling life. (P.S. You can start this Friday!)

Suzanne Morgan Yoga

February 15, 2016

Hello, fabulous you!

If you asked people about me, one of the first things they would say is that “She smiles easily”, “Suzanne is always smiling.”, “She seems very happy.”

Yep, it’s all true. But it didn’t used to be that way. I used to have gut-wrenching anxiety – ALL THE TIME. My life was full of fear and attachment. I looked good on the outside, but let’s just say that my insides were not happy!
Here’s My Secret
My secret is that I learned how to thrive in my body, mind and spirit by going in-depth with yoga and meditation. I also learned that a proper diet and a daily nourishing routine (Ayurveda) gives me this strong platform on which I can (stop thinking about myself!!!) serve others.
  

Can I help you find the path to peace, health and service?
Are you ready to start this Friday?

You Are Ready 

Once a year, I offer a 10 month yoga intensive for a small thoughtful group. I am definitely not looking for buff athletes. I am interested in working with individuals who are open to learning how yoga can heal the body, mind and spirit (yours and others!). Hint: what we do in yoga class is only 10% of what yoga really is. There is so much more…and it’s not about having great yoga poses.

If you want to teach yoga someday, you’ll be in the right place. But most people take advantage of the vast tools of yoga to reshape their lives.

It’s a wonderful, laughter-filled journey.

Here’s how to join me:

1)      Check out the ton of info that I have posted online here: https://suzannemorganyoga.com/teacher-training-yoga-intensive/

2)      Reach out to me by phone (703-626-8349) or email (suzannemorganyoga@yahoo.com). Ask questions. Let’s discuss if this is right for you.

3)      Be prepared to show up at 6 pm on Friday for your new adventure.
Namaste + love,
Suzanne

Drawing for a FREE Yoga or Ayurveda Private When You Send Me Your Feedback!

You’ve been a student or yoga/Ayurveda associate of mine for a while now. Or you follow and learn from my blog. First off, I am sending you heartfelt love and gratitude for being in my life. It’s an honor to be on the yoga path with you. Thank you from the depths of my heart.

Cut to the chase!
go here to complete the short survey
then enter your name into the random drawing for a
FREE Yoga or Ayurveda Private Session!

If you’ve been following my life journey recently, you know that I’ve created a desire to live this year courageously. Every morning when I wake up, I decide what courageous act I can do that day. Maybe it’s having a difficult conversation with someone. Maybe it’s making time on the mat for meditation and yoga a priority (Self-care can slip down the list, right?). But this morning, my courageous act is to ask for your help.

I want to share the gifts of yoga and Ayurveda with more people this year. I want to deliver meaningful practices and health solutions. But instead of just running full steam ahead with an idea that I think is brilliant (but that may or may not be that helpful in the light of day), I need your help in determining where to sail my ship, so to speak.  

What I’m asking for is a few moments of your time to give me feedback on:

(1) what issues you face – so I can learn the overall challenges of my peeps

(2) what are your goals or desires relating to well being – where should we be steering our ship?

(3) how I’ve been of value to you – so I can learn my unique offerings;

(4) how can I improve – what can I do more of or less of?

This survey should take about 5 or 10 minutes to complete. Will you please invest that time to help me?

Of course, all feedback is completely confidential. I won’t even share the results with Olivia (my child dog) – ha! I’ll simply use anything you provide me with to hone my services and deliver more good into the world – and especially for you.

As an incentive for your participation, I’d like to enter you into a random drawing for a FREE yoga private or Ayurveda consultation (value $90); We can conduct that consultation in person or by Skype at your convenience. There will be 2 winners and your chances of winning are good!

then enter your name into the random drawing for a
FREE Yoga or Ayurveda Private Session!
You can participate confidentially without any identifying information if you’d like. But if you want to have your name in the drawing, please do give me your name and email at the end of the survey.
Thank you in advance for your participation. But please HURRY! Please complete this survey no later than 5 pm, Friday, February 12, 2016.
Namaste + love,
Suzanne

5 Myths About Yoga Teacher Training Programs (Or At Least Mine!)

As I talk to individuals who are considering participating in a yoga teacher training program, I uncovered some common myths and assumptions that frankly, quite surprised me.

Maybe I’ve been teaching for too long (13 years – yay!), so I sometimes forget to step into the student’s mind. Plus, the downside of yoga being so ubiquitous is that the media has portrayed yoga students and teachers as white, skinny, affluent, young Americans with chiseled bodies (Not so, read below!).

So for those of you who are longing to organize your life in a healthy, natural way and want to experience the deeper benefits of yoga, don’t let these 5 common misconceptions keep you from this life-changing experience:

 

Here are the 5 Myths:

  1. “To become a ‘real’ yoga teacher, I need to be a white, skinny, young, affluent, female American.” This is absolutely false. True yoga is available to everyone. In my program, I honor all ethnicities, body shapes and ages. This yoga intensive is available to all. You should however have been in a yoga class or have practiced yoga long enough to know that there is more to yoga than the physical poses. If you want to teach, there is actually a lot more work available for those who have the calling to work with others like themselves. Niche markets such as teaching retirees, children, the elderly, corporate yoga, yoga for chronic pain or special conditions abound. What I teach you is to use your “weaknesses” as your strengths.
  2. “I have to be flexible to be good at yoga.” Absolutely, wrong, wrong, wrong. If you are inflexible, you will be able to experience the physical yoga poses in a way that both protects your body and also teaches you how to teach others who are inflexible (the majority of the population). Whoever said being a good yoga student or yoga teacher requires flexibility isn’t practicing or teaching true yoga.
  3. “My yoga poses aren’t good enough for me to start this type of program.” No, no, no, my friends. First off, my Yoga Awakenings Teacher Training Program is about 10% focused on learning and improving your yoga poses. Yes, you will learn alignment and have lots of one-on-one time with me to learn yoga poses. In addition, you’ll learn the true depth of yoga learning key skills on health, managing anxiety and fear, living the loving principles of yoga and how to be of service in the world (on or off the mat).
  4. “I can’t start a yoga intensive or teacher training program because I don’t have a solid yoga and meditation home practice.” I can assure you that most people entering a teacher training program do not already have a consistent and fulfilling home practice. One of the keys that you will learn is how to integrate yoga more deeply into your life – at home and out in the world.
  5. “The Yoga Awakening Teacher Training Program is only for people who want to become yoga teachers.” Nope, not true. While some participants of my program will be eager to become professional yoga teachers, I’d estimate that 50-75% of those who take a teacher training program have no plans to teach yoga. (This is true for not just my program, but almost all teacher training programs.) My program is a life program. You will learn how to rest with the big questions of life (who am I? why am I here? how can I live in a space of integrity and peace?). You’ll learn how to nourish your body. You’ll learn the fascinating and rich traditions of yoga that address taming the mind, healing the body and tapping into the spirit.

 

Are you interested in deepening your yoga and meditation practice and becoming healthier in your body, mind and spirit so that you can help others no matter what your life path? Consider my very special program. Take these five steps:

  1. Download the 26 page PDF here. This will answer many of your questions.
  2. Call me or email me with ANY questions. I’m here for you. I can help you make an informed decision. You can reach me at SuzanneMorganYoga@yahoo.com or 703-626-8349.
  3. Fill out the application. (Once accepted in, please send your deposit of $300)
  4. Be ready to start Friday, February 19 at 6 pm.
  5. Rejoice! You are on the road to a healthier more abundant life!

 

I offer monthly payment plans as a payment option. Please ask questions.

BUT HURRY! We start on February 19th!

Yoga for a Healthy Back Workshop – Tues, Jan. 19

stock photo yoga for back pain

Tired of moving like a much older version of yourself? Learn how yoga can heal back pain and help you stay lively and healthy.

For ten years, I had chronic back, neck and shoulder pain from scoliosis. While yoga didn’t cure my scoliosis, it healed my body and totally relieved me from pain. My healing from this pain is why I became a yoga teacher. I love sharing these solutions with others!

Even low grade pain takes a huge toll on our bodies and zaps us from having the energy to be fully present to others and comfortable in the world.

Yoga for a Healthy Back – Tuesday, January 19   7 – 8:30 pm

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to strengthen, stretch and relax the body to address back pain. It’s important to have a mix of strengthening and stretching. For instance too little core work weakens the back. Too much core work exacerbates back pain. In addition to the muscles in the upper and lower back, we’ll learn how to target some major muscle groups that can play a big role in back pain (tight glutes and hips, weak psoas, etc.)

Learn how to care for your back and walk away with some short yoga practices that you can do at home.

Please bring a yoga mat and a blanket (that will be used for support in some of our yoga poses). If you have yoga blocks, please bring them as well. All levels welcome.

HOW TO REGISTER:

Space is limited, so early registration is greatly appreciated. I may be able to accommodate some last minute attendees. $30 per person. Please register online. You can pay by credit card online or register online and pay by cash or check in person. Make checks payable to: Suzanne Morgan. Click here to register.

Call or email me at any time to indicate your interest or with questions: 703-626-8349 or suzannemorganyoga@yahoo.com.

LOCATION:

Arlington Community Church, 6040 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22205. To find our space at ACC, park in the parking lot at the back of the church. When facing the back of the church, walk around to the right side of the building. Enter the door on the right side of the building, walk up the stairs and our room is on the left side.

join me in a year of living courageously

I absolutely love January 1. It’s such a fresh start, clean slate. Reflecting on the past year and planning for the New Year brings out my most optimistic self. And if you know me well, you know that I believe that the act of setting intentions is a powerful driving force to help us ground the mind in what we want instead of letting it wander down the dark road of our negativity biases. In fact, in just about every yoga class I teach, I invite students to set an intention for what they want to manifest, who they want to be or how they want to feel. I believe this simple task helps us bring in the light instead of forever analyzing the darkness. I believe this simple act has changed my life.

Years ago I used to make the longest lists of what I wanted to do that year. (Do notice that I said “what I wanted to do” and not “who I wanted to be”.) I got swept up in a huge bucket list of the nice-to-haves instead of the essential-to-bes.

This year my intention for myself is simple. I intend for 2016 to be my year of living courageously. Most people think courage is about being heroic. But the word courage comes from the root word coer or cor, which means heart. My aim is to live from a full heart or wholeheartedly.

Will you join me on this journey to more often….

  • walk in the sun
  • focus my time on people, ideas and tasks that fulfill me
  • take more chances
  • not resist change or reality
  • be authentic
  • be gentle and kind to myself
  • and choose to see challenges and obstacles as opportunity.

I wish you peace, love and joy for 2016.

Namaste,

Suzanne

Athletes have specific physical challenges and goals.

Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai

chaiHello, yoga friends.

Instead of looking for a sugar fix, I drink this chai in the evenings as a indulgent drink. I just love it. My version is less heating than a lot of chai recipes. This has no caffeine or tea. And you’ll notice that it’s missing the typical cinnamon. I’m allergic to cinnamon. But if you like cinnamon, then add some – but not before bed. Cinnamon is too invigorating.

Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tsp fennel powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 3 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 star anise
  • 4 slices of fresh ginger
  • 4 cups of cashew milk (almond milk or whole milk would be good too!)
  • maple syrup to taste

Bring water and spices to soft boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add cashew milk or your choice of milk, simmer for 10 minutes. Add maple syrup upon serving.

Makes 4 servings.

(Gratitude for Sweet Asrael who gave me a chai recipe that I made my own. I’m not aware of the original source)

New Recipe! Spicy Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder

Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder2

Hungry, Yoga Friends?

I just made up this recipe last night and let me tell you, this is one for the cookbook! This is a very special, but easy to make soup. It’s spicy and a touch sweet. It’s velvety but the corn adds crunch. Here’s my recipe:

Suzanne’s Spicy Sweet Potato and Corn Chowder Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 a sweet onion, such as Vidalia
  • 2 Tbsp of good quality olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp good quality butter
  • Salt to taste – I probably added 1 tsp.
  • 1/2 of a fresh jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp Old Bay
  • 5 cups of sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth (good quality, you guessed it)
  • 3 cups of sweet corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp of maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro

Cook the onions slowly in the butter and olive oil with the salt to carmelize, about 10-15 minutes. Bloom the spices and then add the jalapeno. Cook for a few more minutes.

Turn up heat, add sweet potatoes and then broth. Cook for about 30 to 45 minutes, allowing the potatoes to fully cook. Turn off heat and blend soup with a hand immersion blender.

Turn heat back on. Add corn. Cook for about 5 minutes. Add coconut milk, lemon juice, syrup and cilantro. Cook for 3 minutes. Then you are done. Ready to serve.

Enjoy!

Namaste,

Suzanne

Kick Lethargy, Dullness and Indecision to the Curb – September Is All About Taking Inspired Action

girl with dog in field2Hello, friends and yogis!

I am busting at the seams with inspiration and I’m riding on the glorious coat tails of the new season. September is simply a magical time of year. Mother Nature is giving us a grand push towards manifesting our dreams. Don’t waste it. This is not the time to snuggle up with Netflix, folks. It’s time to take inspired action.

Join me at yoga class Wednesday, September 9 – 6:30 pm

The theme is Radiance & Inspiration
Don’t waste this pivotal month by dullness, indecision and lack of focus. Kick lethargy to the curb and feel better in your body so that you can take advantage of the energy of September. It’s time to get things done – not in a hurried, scrambled fashion – but by being mindful of where we place our energy and time. Come to class tomorrow. You’ll walk away inspired and refreshed. https://suzannemorganyoga.com/classes/

And if you are ready to take on a health challenge or just want to feel better….consider scheduling a Health or Nutrition Consultation with me.
You may be aware that I just graduated with a Masters in Ayurvedic Nutrition and Digestive Issues in July. I’m now a full-fledged Ayurvedic Nutrition, Lifestyle and Health Consultant. This new work blends perfectly in with my yoga teaching. I am madly in love with helping others find better health and happiness. Might I help you?
I specialize in…

  • nutrition
  • lifestyle enhancements
  • weight-loss
  • and all digestive issues and pathologies.

If you’d like a private consultation, I’m offering an introductory rate of $49 for 49 minutes. We’ll meet at my home yoga studio at a convenient time for you (during the day, some week nights and weekends). For more information email me at suzannemorganyoga@yahoo.com.

I hope you are having a great start to September. I wish you abundance and happiness.

Namaste,
Suzanne
