About the Instructor- Susan Clare has been a devotee and instructor of exercise for over 30 years. She is a Certified Mat & Ball Pilates Instructor, a Certified Integrative Yoga Therapist, former Personal Trainer and a Fl. State Licensed Massage Therapist.
Eight months ago Susan slipped in a puddle on a patch of slime, cracked her kneecap & needed surgery. She has had a rapid recovery & to the delight of her surgeon, restored her movement abilities extremely well. Ms. Clare feels she owes her success to the addition of Clinical Somatics Exercises into her movement repertoire,
Now, she would like to share her latest passion with other exercises from her diverse background with others. Through Somatic Movement Exercises, Susan not only restored her knee but undid the back and hip inflammation she had experienced prior to her accident. She believes small gentle movements done with full concentration, bring wholeness & symmetry to the body reducing postural irregularities, tension and pain.
