Suzy Schaak is an acclaimed healer, yogini, artist and entrepreneur.
In 2008, Suzy walked her Dad through the final stages of a devastating disease, ALS. After many quiet nights, lying with him in his hospice bed, she realized that she was no longer fulfilling her dharma and chose to step away from more than 20 years as a successful fashion stylist in the film industry. In 2010, with a passionate mission to love, nurture, and heal the people and this planet, Suzy founded Pure Yoga, in Stillwater, Minnesota, voted the St. Croix Valley’s Best Yoga Studio for an entire decade. It was in this sacred space that she taught yoga and facilitated healing sessions for thousands, hosted yoga retreats and sold her artwork.
In 2020, after stepping into the unknown and leaving her studio to launch onto a global digital stage, Suzy is more committed than ever to living a life of yoga both on and off her mat. As a teacher, she leads students like a rockstar who’s arenas pulse with energy and music— each heart synchronized to a unified beat. Her attunement to vibration brings forward love, healing, flexibility, strength and true transformation.
Rooted in the earth and inspired by divinity, Suzy finds nurture in the healing power of nature. Now based just steps from the winding banks of the pristine St. Croix River and surrounded by hundreds of majestic pine trees, Suzy records yoga classes, offers distance healing, and paints in her light filled studio.
She is joyfully married to her soulmate Joe, is the mother of three beautiful grown daughters and fur mama to her rescue menagerie Winnie, Penelope, Hank and MaryJane
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
