bestselling yoga DVD "Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Seane Corn" produced by Gaiam Inc.

She performs and facilitates retreats and workshops in the U.S. and abroad, and brings a special blend of music, kirtan and sacred ceremony to events as far reaching as yoga retreats, emerging culture conferences, and music festivals - most recently as featured artist at

and Julian Walker, Suzanne is  also co-founder of The Yoga Groove Collective, a group of yoga teachers, musicians and activists dedicated

and several other important causes.

Sacred Music (hosted by the Dalai Lama).

Suzanne has also been a ritual designer and priestess for many years

Suzanne was a featured speaker and led the worlds largest Spiral Dance

and rhythm into a magical spell that entrances us to discover the
sacred song within our own heart."   Seane Corn
