Susie Lee (Owner & Bodyworker)
In 2017, Susie Lee proudly opened Gracie Love Thai Yoga Bodyworks to bring her unique gifts and training to service…always with Metta. Susie’s yoga adventure began in 2008 at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Meditation. From the moment, she stepped onto her first yoga mat, she knew her connection with life deepened. She knew all she was seeking was there within herself through movement with breath. In 2013, she completed her 200-hour Vinyasa training at Thames Street Yoga in Newport, RI. Susie also received a 100-hour certification with Anodea Judith and Todd Norean for an advanced Chakra Yoga Teacher Training. Her drive for growth continues to bring her to learn and practice with many local and national teachers. Susie is an active Kundalini, Bikram and Vinyasa Flow practitioner. She compassionately believes it’s all Yoga; and that Yoga makes everything better.
In the summer of 2015, Susie journeyed to Satchidananda Ashram in Virginia (more commonly known as Yogaville). While studying there and receiving certification from Durgha Leila, founder of Yoga of Recovery, she became interested in bodywork. Susie is now a Bodyworker, Energy Worker and a certified Thai Massage Therapist with an advanced certification from the Thai Massage School Shivagakomarpaj & Old Medicine Hospital in ChiangMai, Thailand.
Susie received her most recent training and certification while studying at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat Center in the Bahamas. There she successfully completed her training in Thai Yoga Massage Therapy with Kam Thye Chow, founder of the Lotus Palm Thai Massage School in Montreal, Canada.
In early May, Susie completed her Second-Degree Reiki certification under the wisdom and guidance of Reinette Fournier of Tenth Gate Center for Yoga & Meditation, Portsmouth, RI. With this additional gift, she can not only physically energize her clients through Thai Yoga Bodywork but she can now use the channeled energy of Reiki healing as an added benefit to the Thai Yoga Bodyworks experience.
