“If only I had found Suzanne and Scolio-Pilates sooner! I danced with a chronic ankle injury for 2+ years, and no amount of physical therapy could fix the nagging pain. It was only after working with Suzanne that my ankle pain resolved permanently. My eyes have been opened to the advantage of understanding the idiosyncrasies of the body as an athlete. Now, I can’t go more than 2 weeks without checking in with Suzanne and working on my alignment!” – SS, professional dancer helped by Suzanne’s techniques that you will learn in this enhancement module.
