Lopa van der Mersch, Consultant, New York, NY:

Susan is knowledgable, patient, frank, and direct.

She beautifully strikes the balance between accepting you exactly where you’re at and encouraging you to reach for a better lifestyle, and better health. She lives Ayurveda, and it shows in how easily relevant these anciently-rooted principles become as she guides you. I recommend her highly, whether you’re stark-new to Ayurveda, or very experienced and seeking subtle refinements.


April Miller McMurtry, Artist and Educator, CA:

Working with Susan has the added bonus of feeling inspired and motivated to act! Some of the changes were simple, yet have made a world of difference for my well-being. That is the beauty – Susan knows how to present Ayurveda and ancient wisdom in a clear and accessible way to help make deep and lasting changes that anyone can manage.

Christina Tavera, Special Event Planner, Oakland, CA:

I have experienced Susan to be extremely insightful, centered and knowledgable.

Her style is kind, sensitive and gentle as well.  Information she gave me years ago, still resonates to be true for me.   Susan helped me prepare for a surgery.  She offered me a healing porridge that I ate for the days right after my procedure.  It helped immensely with the healing process.  So much so, I now offer it to other friends.
I would recommend Susan to anyone looking to improve their health and general well being…and yes her secret porridge is the bomb! Tasty too!

Gerry Nagatani, Research Manager at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art:

Uma Kahn, MFTI, Yoga Teacher, Thai Massage Practitioner, Oakland CA:

I was supported numerous times by Susan’s astute capacity with Ayurveda. In particular, I have great confidence in her understanding of constitutions and the use of herbs for healing.  She is easy to talk with, and to learn from; and she is realistic when it comes to advocating for behavioral change that is manageable. I had good results from her ayurvedic herbal recipes.

Thomas Cunningham, Director of Finance and Operations at Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center, San Francisco, CA:

I wholeheartedly recommend Susan

More than that, her deep understanding of yoga and ayurvedic philosophy have made her a wonderful counselor for me in a variety of life situations. She is a true blessing in my life.


Geoff White, Sr. Technical Consultant (Virtualization, DevOps) at Taos:

Susan was instrumental in giving me tools to facilitate me taking control of my well being.

During this time in my life, i was had at work at a disruptive start-up. The hours long, and the commute as well. From Susan i learned key skills to help to manage my stress levels and to cultivate my health. I highly recommend her as an Ayurvedic practitioner and instructor.
