Yes, it’s early, but what else are you doing at 6 a.m.?

We all have a personal journey to wellness. For Susan Eve, owner of Inner Circle Yoga, it started with a car accident. She was struck by a car while crossing Jasper Avenue that left her physically disabled for 2 years. As she slowly recovered, she was drawn to Yoga as a gentle way to heal, both physically and mentally. Just like our current pandemic pause, the accident gave her a chance to reset and reconsider her busy life. Susan admits that pre-accident, she tried yoga and it didn’t quite click as she was used to a high impact style of exercise. With that in mind, she has combined classic fitness principles with Yoga to create Sunrise Yoga: a mix of Navy Seals training, resistance training, and vinyasa yoga.

Sunrise Yoga is designed to make students stronger in mind and body, no matter where they are on their wellness journey. The program is online, which Susan considers a good thing, because “when we leave our houses we have a social mask on, and now physical masks as well”. At home we can leave the masks aside and focus on what really matters.
