Sara

I signed up for Sue’s Prenatal Yoga Class when I was around 18 weeks along, and ended up doing two, six week sessions with her! Before I was pregnant, I had done a few other yoga classes over a couple of years, and always had struggled trying to find the right breathing pattern. In general, I always struggled with yoga. Once I began Sue’s Prenatal Yoga Class, I actually learned the correct way to find my breath doing different poses, and just slowed down and went at my own pace.

Sue taught us different breathing techniques, and a couple different positions/stretches to do throughout pregnancy that I was able to do in the delivery room between contractions. Giving birth was definitely the hardest thing I have ever done, but I am glad I was taught how to do different comfortable poses to help, and get me through delivery.

I started working out with Sue in January. I thought I was in better shape. How wrong I was. Sue keeps the classes fun and engaging. There is always a challenge. Who knew I could run nearly a quarter of a mile. I know it doesn’t sound like much but to me I can now put a new goal on the table and have the courage to sign up for a 5k.

My family and extended family just completed a wonderful 2 consecutive day Yoga morning at Avila Beach, CA. There were 10 of us one morning and 4 the next. Sue’s gracious and calm led Yoga session was adaptable to all ages (kids ages 5 – 12, and adults up to age 60+!) If you haven’t already experienced Sue as an instructor, don’t procrastinate, check out any of her classes as I’m sure they are all excellent! (I am a user of Yoga and Spin classes and they both are excellent!)

Brittany’s Success Story

Sue has helped me towards my weight loss goal of 60lbs. I started taking sue’s classes about 6 months ago, and all i can say is i am so thankful i did. I started out with her bootcamp class which was a very fun, upbeat and challenging class in a good way. I have now taken three classes with her and plan on taking many many more, she is extremely motivating and shows you so many new exercises that i have never tried. Along with a current diet plan i am on, Sue has helped me towards my weight loss goal of 60lbs and as of now i have lost 50lbs! I always leave each class feeling so good about myself, and feel like i got a great workout. I love taking Sue’s classes and recommend her to all of my friends, I cant wait to try new classes with her!

Katie

I have had the pleasure of having Sue as my fitness instructor for several months now. (Spin, Kick boxing and Boot Camp) She is very encouraging and welcoming to those of us “new” to the workout scene. I love her classes for so many reasons…her positive, upbeat attitude, great music selection, constantly changing routines and her gentle nudges to get us back on track. I look forward to working out with Sue again this year!!

Dawn

I had always wanted to try a Kickboxing class and was excited that Sue offered one. I am not an early morning person (6:30 am) but Sue’s class really motivated me. She is encouraging and makes you feel like you can do it no matter what your physical level is. I plan on taking her class again and even bought myself a a cardio kickboxing bag. Sue may seem to be a quiet person but she just lights up when she is teaching her class.

Nancy’s Success Story

Dear Sue, Thank you so much for your excellent instruction in your Gentle Yoga Class. I just wanted you to know how much it has helped me. I had a knee, groin and lower back injury that just was not getting any better after over a year of other alternative modalities. It took the joy and action out of my life. I just wanted to cry with the constant pain. I could not sleep because of the pain and discomfort. All I wanted to do when I got home from work was lay on my bed. It dragged on so long I thought: “Is this it? Is this how it’s going to be for the rest of my life?” This was unusual for me as I am an active person. I like to jog, hike, bike, explore and have adventure in my life. I feel I am a very young 60 year old person. But at that time with all the pain I felt like a very old and broken 90 year old. When I first started your class I could not even do the simplest balancing positions. Now I am pain free and look forward to your class and the great way I feel doing the positions. I do not want to miss a single class, for the joy of feeling fantastic is something I will never take for granted again. I want to thank you for giving that back to me. I want to thank you for showing me all the possible modified positions till I gained my strength and confidence back. What was such an effort is now like a beautiful flowing dance. Now I can add Yoga to the list of active things I love to do. I can never thank you enough. You are a great teacher and I feel so very lucky to have joined your class. Yours truly in health and joy, Nancy

Susan

Sue Conrad is a great instructor! Two months ago, I was in the worst shape of my life and after Sue’s pilates and strength training several time a week, along with cardio, I have lost 29 pounds! Sue had plenty of modified moves for me, when I wasn’t able to keep up with the class. Her patience and encouragement kept me coming back. I highly recommend any class she teaches!

Hans and Patricia

Hans and I have taken yoga from Sue for two years. Also I have been Sue’s pilates class. I have had many fine instructors over a period of 35 years. Hans has only been the USA for three years and this is his third year in yoga. Both of us feel that Sue is “Tops” in Instruction. At the same time she is always kind, considerate. thoughtful and helpful as she works with each individual in her classes.
