DIMs and SIMs

Susi is a mentor/teacher to one of my most valued mentor/teachers. I have taken Susi’s I Love Anatomy online course for Yoga teachers, and learned so much about the mechanics of movement in the human body, about how we may be unconsciously compensating for a lack of mobility by moving in ways that are not ideal, and about how to move in ways that are beneficial. I can say with confidence that Susi is a caring, knowledgable teacher with huge integrity, and I highly recommend any course she might offer.
Susi is my number one go-to expert on pain care.
I have followed Susi for many years and consider her to be one of the most trusted experts when it comes to training yourself out of pain. Through her I met a lot of amazing thought leaders in the emergent pain science that completely changed my outlook on pain, sustainable pain care, and the exciting possibilities that can open up if we take on an exploratory approach to our own experiences. These podcasts are gold and I can’t wait to listen to the next episodes!
My background info: I am a yoga teacher focusing on working with chronic pain. I was plagued with chronic migraines myself for many years, trying all possible treatments under the sun and failing... before I realized that there’s another way, a way of gentle inquiry and curiosity, a way of recognizing “yellow lights” that Susi always talks about. And now I’m free of pain!
