About Your Teacher and Class
InSpirit Yoga, as the name implies, is infused with Spirit, adding a spiritual and philosophical perspective to the detailed attention to alignment in every pose. Suzie uses the art of progressive teaching, breaking down the actions of each pose to build on the next in an organized and concrete way. This alignment-based yoga with sound bio-mechanical principles makes it safe and therapeutic for every body.
Committed to her own spiritual growth, Suzie encourages and empowers her students with enthusiasm and humor to open to all of life with loving acceptance. Her clear and precise teaching style is balanced with fun and authenticity.
Suzie Hurley holds two teaching certifications and has been teaching Yoga for over 40 years, drawing from her extensive study in the Anusara, Iyengar and Kripalu systems. She opened Willow Street Yoga Center in 1994 in Takoma Park, MD, selling it to her son Joe in 2012. Willow Street went from 160 students a week to over 2000 students a week. Suzie has led many Teacher Trainings, and still teaches workshops and yoga retreats internationally. She currently teaches two in-person classes in Oxford, and two Zoom classes for Willow Street.
