susan fried  

Susan is the owner of Budding Buddhas Children’s Yoga and has been practicing for over 15 years. Prior to teaching yoga, Susan was a Casting Director in film and television.  She worked with children on dozens of projects and taught them how to relax before their audition, how to be in the moment and confident when filming, and how to embrace self-esteem and joy.  Susan believes these lessons can apply to all children.  

Susan feels that children of all ages can understand the mind/body connection and she integrates this into her Budding Buddhas Yoga & Mindfulness programs.  She empowers students to take yoga techniques off the mat and into their everyday lives.

Susan received her children’s yoga teaching certification through Karma Kids Yoga in New York City.  She also completed a 200 hr. adult teaching certificate at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, NY.  Susan’s programs enrich children’s lives in ways she never thought imaginable.
