Susannah and Vanessa started their company, Create a Gogo, to help you explore the source of your inspiration, find your voice and help you get your work out to the world. They have two more classes coming up this summer, Creativity for Everybody and Yoga for Creativity. In their classes, they will “share [their] enthusiasm for self-expression and self-trust and help people learn how to free their voices and discover their muses”. After taking one of their classes, their students leave with increased confidence and a stronger connection to their own sources of inspiration. Read more about Susannah and Vanessa in the following instructor highlight.
