|Susan Frederick is a dynamic, spirited
& bilingual yoga teacher (specialist in the Bali Method), reiki relaxation
practicioner, artist, and co-owner of a company specialising in the
preparation and distribution of nutritional supplements with specific health benefits.
Years of experience working with the public, developing her own innate intuitive healing abilities, and extensive personal lifelong study of aspects of eastern traditions (including tai-ch, reiki, and feng shui) eventually led her to discover India's gift to the world - Yoga.
Shortly after a deep personal loss in the spring of 1998, she was introduced to the renowned yoga master, Madan Bali, Ph.D., founder of Montreal's Yoga Bliss Training & Research Insitute.
She practiced yoga regularly under his direction for six years, and became a certified hatha yoga teacher in June of 2004. Shortly thereafter, she began helping him with a special program he had designed for women undergoing breast cancer treatment: translating in French as he taught, teaching in his absence, and acting as his assistant in various capacities (traveling with him as he taught workshops and conferences in upstate New York, the Laurentians, etc.).
She developed her own teaching practice and has taught regularly ever since. As a Bali Method specialist, she has been teaching in Montreal hospitals since 2006, and was one of four teachers offering the Bali Method to 100 women undergoing treatment for breast cancer in a recent hospital research project supervised by UQAM.
Susan teaches bi-weekly yoga classes (sponsored by the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation) offered free to women undergoing treatment for breast cancer, as part of an ongoing support program "Serenity" in the St. Zotique community center in St-Henri. She also gives special classes focusing on relaxation, visualisation & meditation techniques for patients with various illnesses in Laval, sponsored by the Fondation Maxime Letendre.
Susan's regular yoga classes are now offered in several locations in and around Montreal, as well as private sessions of yoga and/or reiki relaxation (tailored to client's needs). She gives special classes designed for seniors, young adults with special needs, and children. Susan also offers workshops and participates in weekend retreats!
