Sue is a yoga therapist and teacher who helps you to get to know and embody your physical body, and work with it in a way that supports you with your unique life path. Yoga has sustained and strengthened Sue throughout her life, and she wants to share its many benefits with her clients as she creates the space to empower them to discover their own inner healing power and strength. Sue believes yoga works on all layers of our existence – our physical body, our energetic body, our emotional body, our body of thought and our self. When we work with one aspect, she says, it has the potential to impact the other layers of our existence. Sue has a special interest in how trauma impacts the physical body and how this can be healed. Rather than allowing a physical illness or injury to take over your life, yoga therapy can empower you to recognise and work with other layers of your existence to support your physical structure in the healing process. When a student presents with a physical condition that requires further information in order to work in a way that supports the student in honouring their physical structure, Sue recommends seeking expert opinions. She has a trusted network of local experts she refers clients to for further investigations and diagnosis if needed. Sue first discovered yoga after recovering from a mountain bike accident. The mindful and gentle practice made her feel strong, relaxed, aligned, peaceful and full of vitality, as well as helping her to heal. When Sue’s husband passed away from cancer in 2009, the loss changed her life forever and through yoga and meditation, she intuitively explored the meaning of life on a deeper level. The therapeutic and healing qualities of these practices helped her move towards a sense of equilibrium and a deep sense of inner calm. By 2013, Sue had established her yoga business, led by the desire to share the benefits of yoga with others. Sue believes the therapeutic and healing qualities of mediation and yoga helps one move towards a sense of equilibrium and a deep sense of inner calm. Yoga has enriched Sue’s life in so many ways – sustaining her, helping her to regain strength and energy to become emotionally resilient, and to heal, grow and truly live again, enjoying life with an open heart. Sue looks forward to sharing the gift of yoga with you soon. Read more

Available in person or online via Zoom/Skype First Session $140 usually 60 minutes On-going sessions $95/hr It is our natural state of being to feel at ease and peaceful. Yoga and yoga therapy are multi-dimensional and integrative approaches to health and well-being – mentally, physically, emotionally, energetically and spiritually. Yoga therapy sits within the complete system of yoga and has a specific structural approach depending on an individual’s goals. The content of a private session depends on the unique individual and their goals. Sue draws upon the tradition of yoga and the framework of yoga therapy along with aspects of trauma sensitive yoga, somatic therapy, pilates and complementary studies.
