"Budding Buddhas is a phenomenal yoga class that all the Treehouse Children Love!! Their demeanor is calmer and they use the techniques Ms. Sue teaches them in regards to breathing and calming down. Our students and parents cannot wait for yoga class!"

"This year you worked with all of our first grade children at Springhurst Elementary School. I would like to say that the experience was wonderful! The children just loved the different poses that you introduced to them. I also loved the fact that parents were included! I had many wonderful comments from parents who thought that it was a terrific program for their children! You were very organized and you have great management techniques! My whole first grade team would love to have you come back again next year to work with our new students! Thank you so much for such an exciting, enjoyable experience for the students, parents and teachers!"

"Susan completely transformed my son's life. She accomplished more for him with yoga once a week than years of PT several times weekly. The benefits are not just physical. He has learned to use his breath to self regulate and self soothe. Susan is a warm, wonderful person and is fantastic with children. My son adores her and looks forward to yoga every week."

"Susan Fried has been teaching yoga at our preschool for several years. Her wealth of knowledge and innate ability to make children feel successful and empowered is incredible. We are constantly amazed by what the children are able to learn and accomplish in her classes. Our students are stronger, feel great and are more focused. They are always asking "When is Yoga day?"

"How do you create a warm, welcoming environment while also providing a great introduction to fitness and health? At the New Rochelle Public Library and the Huguenot Children’s Library Budding Buddhas have fulfilled this goal with their wonderful “Yoga Tots” programs. The sessions are extremely popular with preschoolers and their grown-ups, and have also won high praises from our children’s librarians. We are looking forward to having Budding Buddhas branch out to engage more age groups at our libraries."

"Sue ran a fantastic yoga party for my twin daughters' 4th birthday! I was so
impressed with how she led a class of over 20 children, some of whom had never done yoga before. All the children were engaged and having fun. Six months later parents are still telling me how much their kids loved the party!"
- JESSICA LEVINSON / MOTHER OF PRE-SCHOOL TWINS
"Susan Fried and her “Budding Buddhas” yoga classes are one of the best additions to the Westchester County children’s fitness scene. The kids improve their strength, flexibility, and body control and they certainly have a great time while doing so. I highly recommend “Budding Buddhas” for any parent looking to improve the health and well being of their child."
