.The Time Is ‘Now’: Strawberry’s Susan Hauser

Susan Hauser’s name inevitably comes up when people talk about yoga in Marin. As someone who can barely touch his toes, even I knew about her positivity and spirit in making yoga a part of many people’s lives out here!

What do you do?

I’m the owner of NOW Power Yoga in Corte Madera, where you can find me teaching every day. I have two boys in college that keep me busy as well.

Where do you live?

Mill Valley in Strawberry.

How long have you lived in Marin? I moved from San Francisco to Marin as a widow with a one and two year old about 21 years ago.

Where can we find you when you’re not at work?

I love hiking. Stinson Beach is a favorite spot. And I never miss a parents’ weekend at my boys’ schools!

If you had to convince someone how awesome Marin is, where would you take them?

Hiking in the Headlands, Tennessee Valley, Stinson Beach, as I mentioned. For going out to dinner, three of my favorites are Picco, Guest House and Buckeye.

What’s one thing Marin is missing? My boys would say, “We need a Benihana.” Honestly, Marin has everything to offer. [Editor’s note: Nish agrees with her kids, 110%.]

What’s one bit of advice you’d share with your fellow Marinites? Oh geez, this question has stumped me! Our lives are complex and seldom linear. Realize you are part of the natural flow and enjoy it!

If you could invite anyone to a special dinner, who would they be? Michael Franti is amazing; I play his uplifting music in my classes. Baron Baptiste, who gave me the inspiration to teach and pursue my yoga business.

What is some advice you wish you knew 20 years ago? Don’t sweat the small stuff, and manifesting, it really works!

What is something that in 20 years from now will seem cringeworthy? Lockdowns and mandates!

Big question. What is one thing you’d do to change the world?

Stay positive, be authentic and believe in yourself. I couldn’t just do one!
