Sonnenalp Club hires ‘mind and body’ supervisor
EDWARDS — Shaun Evans, director of health and fitness at the Sonnenalp Club, announced today that Suzanne Oliver has joined the team as the mind and body supervisor. Oliver, who has been teaching yoga in the Vail Valley for more than 10 years, specializes in an alignment-based practice stemming from the Anusara method of hatha yoga with teaching anchored around the biomechanics of the body.
“I am thrilled to be a part of such high caliber organization and facility,” Oliver said. “The views alone are over the top and I feel that if you are taking a spin class, yoga class or working out, this facility was created to capture the essence of the valley.”
Born and raised in South Carolina, Oliver started attended yoga classes with her mother at age 6. As an adult, she immersed herself in the study of self-awareness, breath and meditation, which she said jump-started her to be more of a living and wellness enthusiast.
Oliver is organizing a program that will offer classes such as flow, hot and restorative yoga as well as meditation and foundational classes. In addition to classes for adults, the class schedule will also include options for children and families as well as training outside of the weekly class schedules.
Oliver, who is married with three children, has lived in the Vail area since 1990 and was previously the yoga director at the Athletic Club at The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa. When not contributing to the health and wellness of others, she likes to hike with their family dog, Kahliki, telemark ski, camp and anything else that involves being outdoors in nature.
“We’re thrilled to have Suzanne come on board at the Sonnenalp Club,” said Evans. “The overall plan of this club is to have well thought out programming that incorporates all aspects of health and wellness to deliver a comprehensive experience. Suzanne, with her expertise and experience, is an integral part of this plan.”
