Susan-Bernhardt
Susan Bernhardt offers Ayurveda consultations, yoga therapy, private yoga, Tibetan Cranial, and Thai yoga massage in Denver, Colorado.

Ayurveda is the traditional healing science of India. Ayurveda offers a holistic approach focused on helping people live long, healthy, and well-balanced lives. Ayurveda focuses on maintaining and restoring health by achieving balance in the body, mind, and consciousness through diet, lifestyle, herbal remedies, cleansing practices, and yoga. Yoga likewise is an ancient tradition of India. Like Ayurveda, yoga encompasses many practices designed to promote the health of the body, mind, and spirit. Susan holds Ayurveda Practitioner, Yoga Therapist, and Pancha Karma certifications from the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and Ayurveda ("RMIYA"). Susan is a Professional Practitioner Member of the National Ayurvedic Medicine Association ("NAMA"), as well a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists ("IAYT").
She also holds a 500-hour yoga teacher certification and is an RYT-500 with Yoga Alliance.  She has taught in the yoga teacher training programs at Kindness Yoga and Axis Yoga, and has been a guest lecturer at Metropolitan State University and the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Consistent with the traditions of Ayurveda and yoga, Susan develops individual programs for each client based on that client's unique constitution and on any imbalances that the client may be experiencing. Recommendations can be drawn from all facets of Ayurveda and classical yoga, such as diet and nutrition, daily routine and lifestyle, herbal supplements, yoga postures, cleansing practices (pancha karma and shat karma), breathing practices (pranayama), deep relaxation, meditation, yoga nidra, and marma work.

Susan also is a Tibetan Cranial Practitioner. Tibetan Cranial has a rich history that originated in the Himalayan highlands about 3,000 years ago. TC is a disciplined technique designed to realign and restore our innate capacity for self-healing. The work assists the body in correcting its own imbalances, reminding the body that it can heal itself.

Susan also provides therapeutic Thai Yoga Massage, an ancient healing modality with strong roots in Ayurveda and yoga. She is a graduate of the Denver Integrative Massage School.

The healing modalities that Susan offers all share in common recognizing each person as unique and viewing the whole of each person - body, mind, and spirit. Each modality also employs natural methods that work with and take advantage of the body's innate healing abilities. As a result, these practices all aim at truly restoring health and not merely relieving symptoms.  

Together,
Ayurveda, yoga, Tibetan Cranial, and Thai yoga massage allow Susan to offer holistic health and healing options for a wide range of health goals. Susan has worked with people wanting assistance with digestion, anxiety, depression, stress, musculoskeletal and joint pain, low energy, management of chronic conditions such as autoimmune diseases and diabetes, migraines, headaches, head injuries, insomnia, asthma, allergies, menstrual cycle issues, and many other conditions. Further, with a broad range of tools at her disposal, Susan can tailor recommendations so that they are workable for a particular person's circumstances.
