We first met Suuz at the YMCA where she was our instructor for a yoga class. We especially love her Essentrics and Qi Gong 8 Treasures Classes — Suuz is wonderful! Knowledgeable and full of spirit and passion, she guides us through the stretching, strengthening, and centering of these various practices with an expert, gentle, humorous, and patient hand. We cannot recommend Suuz and her classes highly enough!
I just want to thank you for the wonderful Yoga experience last week.
I have never practiced yoga with such an interesting instructor – and I have done yoga and pilates for 15 years.
Never in my life had I had an instructor that focused on the joint movement the way you do… you made the most challenging moves feel like a breeze only by making us concentrate on how to shift our joints in the right direction/position. I didn’t know before this week that the Boat and Canoe poses could be done without straining my neck or hurting my lower back only by focusing my eyes on my toes while, or that I can actually stand on one leg without losing my balance even once only by shifting my thoughts towards the right joints (rather than a fixed point on the floor)
I am a student in the Tai Chi Fall Prevention Class for seniors taught by Ms. Suuz Martines at the Simmons YMCA. I have been a member of this class from the time it began about a year ago.
Ms. Martines always directs her teaching to the purpose of the class, fall prevention, and engages the participants to pay careful attention to the Tai Chi movements that are most productive to this end. She likewise pays attention to how we best learn and to our interest (i.e., reviewing, reinforcing, answering questions).
She is a very dedicated teacher to the cause, and l have enjoyed being a student in her class.

Suuz Moves has a great product at a great value. The website is super convenient allowing you to sign-up and pay for classes. Finally, Suuz is a great instructor that goes the extra mile and shares her enthusiasm with you.
I loved my Aroma Yoga® class. It was enlightening & educational. Your studio has a positive atmosphere, is comfortable and chill. I felt happy and relaxed!
I have taken both yoga & Essentrics classes from Suuz & have experience great benefits from both! Suuz has some great insights into yoga bring her extensive training in various movement techniques to enhance the experience. Suuz’s Essentrics class includes both movement, flexibility & some strength aspects in a gentle manner that has benefited me greatly beyond my yoga practice! Both highly beneficial & highly recommended!
Suuz helped me to achieve my goal of communicating in an honest and timely matter with my spouse. I had not participated in Aroma Freedom Technique sessions before and did not know what to expect. Suuz was very attentive and gently guided me as we discussed emotional barriers to reaching my goal. She expertly recalled my own words to help shape my affirmations. In a short period of time, I was able to break through some long standing negative energy. I thank Suuz Martines for her integrity and passion for healing and for introducing me to a “new” way of being.
I was planting flowers outside. My hands were full when I tripped on the board I had on the sidewalk where I was putting dirt and plants, causing me to fall backwards. The fall was so slow and controlled, I fell like a feather on the sidewalk and was not hurt at all. I attribute this to the Tai Chi and Eight Treasures QiGong I have been doing with Suuz for several years. I have never fallen like that before.
Suuz is an excellent teacher & brings her unique experience & expertise in a wide variety of movement classes such as yoga, essentrics & tai chi to each class. I personally have benefitted greatly by Suuz’s unique insights into how the various movements help us get healthy, more flexible, stronger, & experience wellbeing through movement. I find that it’s more beneficial than PT at a fraction of the cost. I have been taking yoga, fusion & pilates classes for over 8 years with a wide variety of instructors but have found Suuz to be the best. Her classes are extremely beneficial, fun & have helped me overcome a variety of back, shoulder & leg issues. Thanks to Suuz’s instruction, I am much healthier at 60 that i was in m 50’s! I highly recommend Suuz Moves!
