Susan Gasiorek

Evolve Owner + Instructor

Hello and welcome to Evolve. A space where we enjoy helping you move better.

I am a Certified 800 hour Yoga instructor with Hatha, Yin, Yoga Nidra, Restorative, Chair, and Vinyasa training

Merrithew Barre, Pilates Mat, and Reformer Pilates certified

Essentrics Level 4 certified instructor.

Did I tell you I love to learn.

My path to Evolve began with my love of yoga. Many years of practice led me to yoga teacher training.

Instructing yoga opened my eyes to how my clients moved in class and the struggle some had with flexibility, balance and strength. I realized I wanted to help them move with more ease as they age and to continue to move in healthy ways. My clients inspire me to continue to learn and grow and Evolve.

I see the benefits of yoga, pilates and Essentrics and love how each class brings a unique benefit to our clients. I believe we are gathering all the ingredients needed to create an incredible recipe for healthy movement.

I believe In leading classes for every body. My goal is to help each student find balance and some peace on their mat. I encourage students to challenge themselves in safe ways to grow and sustain their practice. My classes offer a balance of effort, steadiness and ease, with a focus on breath and mindfulness, in a playful and non competitive environment.

My goal is to have each student leave feeling refreshed, energized and relaxed, while increasing flexibility, mobility and range of motion.

I love healthy, fun, functional fitness and hope you will too.”

My goal is to help everyone feel good in their own body. I want to use my understanding of anatomy and body mechanics to help participants move with ease.
