About the Teachers

suzanne-burnsSuzanne Burns

Suzanne’s love for yoga began in 2009 while living in Washington, DC. After practicing both Bikram and Power Yoga regularly for a few of years, Suzanne decided to earn her 200 hour teaching certification through Down Dog Yoga, a training rooted in the principles of Baptiste Power Yoga. What has always drawn Suzanne to this practice is its ability to build communities and empower the individual practitioner. To continue her goal to teach yoga to every body, Suzanne became a licensed practitioner of Yoga for the Special Child in 2014 under the direction of Sonia Sumar and completed her 85 hour prenatal teaching certification in 2015 with Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa. In 2016 Suzanne opened Humble Haven Yoga in her hometown of Richmond, VA. Since then she has continued her work and training as a student with the Baptiste Institute, Yoga for the Special Child, and the Connection Coalition to bring yoga to as many people as possible inside and outside of Humble Haven Yoga’s physical walls whether through weekly studio classes, her own teacher trainings, retreats, or community outreach programs in the Richmond area.

Activites

Optional Excursions (additional fee applies):

Cenotes
The Mexican Riviera is flush with these beautiful underground pools and a trip here isn’t complete without a dip in these refreshing waters. There are multiple cenotes to visit that are much less crowded than those in the Tulum area and only about 30min away by car. Find tranquility below ground or liven you experience with a cenote/zip line combination. Both options are available and booking at least a day in advance is recommended.

Snorkeling & Snuba
The biodiversity on the protect reef in the Mexican Riviera is stunning. Take off for an afternoon when the sun lights up the corals, tropical fish and sponges and search for turtles or reef sharks. Snorkelers can float above it all while scuba divers (no certification needed) can swim down into the tropical traffic. Either option will highlight why this area is protected and turned into a National Marine Park. Yogis can walk to the beach and take a 5 minute stroll to reach the operator. This natural oasis is literally steps from our retreat center.

Scuba
If you’re a diver there’s twice the opportunity here, you can dive in the coral reefs or, for something a little different, take a cavern or cenote dive. Seasonally the more adventurous (crazy?) yogis can also try a bull shark dive…eek! Tons of diving options await the intrepid.

Akumal Sea Turtle Snorkel
The warm Caribbean waters off of the Mexican Riviera boast sea turtle populations year-round. You can outfit with a dive shop to snorkel with these lovelies or head out with your own gear and see if you get lucky.

Coba Ruins
The Mayan ruins at Coba is one of the few sites in the Yucatan that is still relatively unrestored. Many of these ancient buildings are the same as when they were rediscovered in 1890. The beautiful location is less hectic and touristy than other Mayan sites and is certainly worth the day trip.

Playa Del Carmen Take a shopping trip, have a great meal, or just enjoy people watching on a trip to Playa del Carmen. This is a fun tourist spot where you can shop for anything from cheap souvenirs to boutique items.
