Connecting the mind and body through movement and breath



Tired? Exhausted? Stressed?  That's why Susan, former K-12 school teacher created this workshop for teachers and recorded the Stress Free Zone download.

Take time out to deeply relax your body and mind as Susan guides you through a meditation (yoga nidra, a technique she studied with Yoga Masters in India and in California with Dr. Richard Miller) and teaches you simple and easy to learn meditations some as short as 1-3 minutes in length.  Susan will show you how to integrate these mindfulness and meditation techniques into your daily life and classroom so you won't feel as drained or burnt out by the end of the day and will have a calmer classroom environment.  She will also teach you some quick and simple movement and breath exercises to connect your mind and body.  These exercises are great to help both you and your students refocus or "wake up" when your minds are wandering and you get that tired sleepy feel.  If all else fails just press play on her Stress Free Zone download.

This is a session you definitely don't want to miss as Susan brings these ancient meditation and mindfulness techniques she studied in India, New Mexico and California wtih world renowned Yoga Masters making them easliy accessible to you.

"If you're up for the challenge we will begin day 1 of the 40 day Mindfulness Challenge so you too can join our Mindfulness Movement of over 7000 adults and kids.  I look forward to sharing these meditation and mindfulness techniques with you as  I have seen them change lives.  Hope you can join us!".  Susan =;)


"Susan Agrios, the incredible woman who inspired me to start mindfulness at Callingwood! School! I began with the basics as you taught us during your time with us...Our principal informed me that a parent of a student in my classroom was truly inspired by her son's ability to practice mindfulness and literally said it has changed his life. She wanted to learn more about it and so our principal passed along to her the mindfulness toolkit that you presented us with...Thank you Susan for all you do to bring peace to our bodies and for sharing that peace with the world! Much respect"

"I have had the good fortune of taking the TIME OUT: Mindfulness workshop with Susan on a number occasions. It is so simple to do and has had such an impact on the quality of my life. My relationships within my family and circle of friends have reached new levels since using these techniques consistently.
I have seen my students use meditation to achieve a positive, healthy state of mind before on-stage performance or classroom performance. I have seen anxious students achieve a sense of calm in a hectic day of school. This is a skill that will help them throughout their life".

Junior High Teacher


“Sue’s Yoga Nidra class was truly a one-of-a-kind experience. As a type-A, over-achiever, I often find it difficult to relax and unwind. It took me a few classes to get the full experience of Yoga Nidra, but once I did it was completely exhilarating. At the end of the class I was glowing like a light bulb! I felt rejuvenated, refreshed and I became a true believer in meditation and how it can benefit my overall well-being.
I teach a Holistic Health Class at Ross Sheppard High School and I have introduced my students to Yoga Nidra.  They find it very relaxing and a perfect break from their hectic schedules. I highly recommend Sue’s class. Her energy is contagious and you will leave the class feeling relaxed and refocused.”
