Suzanne's painting.jpg
Suzanne is the sweetest person I know, and a totally awesome yoga instructor. She also has MS; she uses yoga to help manage her symptoms. Last weekend, the Neurological Institute of Swedish Medical Center and the William Traver Gallery hosted a showing of artworks that were created by people with MS. Suzanne showed the mixed media painting, above. I am so proud of her!

I went to the show, and my goodness, it was a happenin' place! Over 150 artists showed paintings, drawings, photos ... and, yes, even the fiber arts were represented by a quilt and a very interesting embroidered piece that was an abstraction of an MRI of a spine.

Suzanne teaches regularly at Whole Life Yoga in Greenwood and also at Red Square Yoga on Queen Anne Hill. I encourage you to take one of her classes, or try the yoga practices and suggestions she's posted online.
