Yogalife’s founder Michael Suzerris came to yoga after suffering a life-altering spinal injury in 1978, though he did not learn the practice in a traditional beginner class, like most. To rehabilitate himself, he developed his own routine based on linking and healing the mind and body. Years later, he discovered yoga, and realized that his intuitive, self-prescribed physical therapy that was so instrumental to his well-being was essentially the ancient art practiced by people all over the globe. Twenty-two years after his injury, he opened his yoga studio, leading classes that focus on the meditation and mind-body connection that helped him heal.
Yogalife spans across two studios, each of which accommodate 30 students on their journeys toward physical and mental health. The instructors lead a variety of classes to suit students of all fitness levels, including a four-week intro series for newcomers, and challenging classes for advanced students. Restorative yoga uses a short, gentle asana warm-up to relax and prepare the mind and body to receive the benefits of relieving stress and bringing the mind, body, and spirit into balance.
