Susan Jackson

Susan began her Yoga journey in 2000 after taking a course in Eastern Culture and Philosophy at Bradley University where she also studied Elementary Education. She practiced Yoga in good ‘ole DIY fashion for several years, while teaching grades 5-8 in both Illinois and Tennessee. It was in Nashville where she finally found a studio home and continued her practice under her teacher and mentor, Cassie Aitken.   Susan completed her 200 hour certification in 2006 with Jimmy Barkan and returned 3 months later to also complete Jimmy’s Level II/III training. She completed her 500 hour training through Asheville Yoga Center. Since finding her Yoga path, Susan has cultivated a deep interest in anatomy and physiology and remains passionate about continuing education. Susan believes that, “We are always students. Our greatest failure as teachers is when we think there is nothing else to learn.” Learn more about Susan
