Suzanne tells her story:
I started my career as a dancer and performer, the pressure to perform can do a lot to a young woman, mentally and physically, I battled with body image, injuries, and mental health. I suffered a few bouts of “rock bottom” I worked really hard to find health and happiness within my own body, I learned exercises to strengthen my body where injury had weakened me, and I learned mindfulness to strengthen where self-doubt and fear had stopped me.
Once I was in the field of fitness I saw the body image problem was just as bad as the dance world, intensity was the name of the game, workouts were getting tougher, and extremes were becoming the status quo. I began to take a softer gentler approach, incorporating breathing, yoga, and mindfulness into my clients routines.

Suzanne’s summit creates a conversation around the many ways to approach self-care, and encourage women to find their own personal self-care strategies. I am hoping to reach women who find themselves in constant service of others (spouses, children, parents, clients, bosses) and feel like they never take care of themselves.
