Suzanne Manafort

Mindful Yoga Therapy
Executive Director
Suzanne Manafort is the Founder and Executive Director of Mindful Yoga Therapy.
She has studied extensively with Beryl Bender Birch in the Hard and Soft Yoga Institute and also with Patty Townsend in the Embodyoga® Teacher Training programs. She is now on faculty in both schools and teaches in both teacher training programs. At the Himalayan Institute, Suzanne completed the yearlong Living Tantra Program and the Sage Program taught by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait.
She has worked with veterans who suffer with PTS for the last ten years. This work led her to study and learn the practical supports and benefits that veteran’s receive in a yoga program. Her experiences along the way have taught her that teachers require additional training tailored to the specific needs of veterans. She now leads trainings worldwide teaching the guiding principles and toolbox of Mindful Yoga Therapy to other yoga teachers.
Mindful Yoga Therapy is being used in a clinical setting in VA’s nationwide as a complimentary therapy. It is also being used in Veterans Courts in several parts of the country, along with shelters for battered women, fibromyalgia programs, with refugees in Detroit, and homeless shelters for Veterans.
Suzanne has also traveled to Palestine with the Give Back Yoga Foundation and taught four trainings for the teachers in that country to use in the refugee camps.
Suzanne co-authored Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans, Practice Guide. She also produced two CDs—Yoga Nidra by Suzanne Manafort and “Breathe, In Breathe Out”.
