Welcome to Suza’s website, a work-in-progress
January 12, 2018, update from Suza:
My feet are gradually recovering from the fall I had last year and I’m back riding my bicycle and walking. On January 5th, I resumed teaching my Friday morning class for longtime students who attend on a regular basis. The Friday class is full and is not open to drop-ins or new students.
Please email me at Sfrancina@aol.com if you’d like to be contacted when I resume teaching my yoga basics/gentle yoga classes. Please include your name, address, phone number, age, and any health issues I should be aware of. Also, briefly describe your yoga background or let me know if you’ve never taken a class before.
Suza’s group classes are held at Sacred Space Yoga Studio
307 E. Matilija, Suite H (upstairs), in the heart of downtown Ojai.
