When Sue began practicing yoga in 1986 she was looking for something to help regain her figure and fitness after the birth of her first daughter. She was however soon aware that following her weekly yoga class she felt different, slept better, had more patience and an increased sense of calmness.
In 2000 she was diagnosed with breast cancer bringing her life and career as a Registered Nurse to an unforeseen halt. Yoga became and continues to be an integral part of her healing, giving her hope and courage to regain control over her life whilst improving her physical and mental strength. This led her to undertaking teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2003.
Sue believes that yoga is for everyone and so she undertook further teacher training in order to bring the teachings of yoga people to all groups including those living with long term conditions. These include Yoga for people living with cancer, Yoga for people with ME, Yoga for the third age and Meditation. Alongside her yoga training she is a Postural Stability Instructor (PSI) teaching life enhancing skills of strength and balance to the elderly and less abled.
Sue’s yoga journey has led her to study with many wonderfully talented teachers and more recently to embrace the interpretations of the yoga teachings by TKV Desikachar and his father Krishnamacharya.
Sue has just moved to Kent with her husband John and is hoping to set-up some new yoga classes shortly
