Sue began to practise yoga in India in 1991 and completed her Teacher Training with the British Wheel of Yoga in 1999. She has continued to attend trainings and retreats with highly respected yoga and meditation teachers as well as osteopaths, physiotherapists and practitioners of other disciplines. Her teaching is rooted in a consistent personal practice and evolves with new interests and insights.
Over the past 20 years, Sue has taught mainstream classes, individual sessions and classes for people with limited mobility, long-term illness, mental health difficulties and learning disabilities as well as carers, children, professional dancers and actors. Between 2001 and 2014 she delivered a range of courses for Lancashire Adult Learning. She taught yoga for several years at Lancaster University and Ludus Dance. She has co-led yoga and meditation retreats at Dhanakosa Buddhist retreat centre in Scotland and yoga weekends at Samye Ling Tibetan monastery. For several years, she jointly organised the Yoga Space at Buddhafield Festival in Somerset. Currently, she is teaching yoga to health professionals via University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust as well as private classes and individual sessions. Since 2012, she has been training in Rosen Method Bodywork and is now offering Rosen sessions in Lancaster and Didsbury. This allows plenty of time for growing vegetables, gathering firewood and living simply.
Sue has a deep understanding of anatomy and physiology and aims to make yoga accessible to all. She assists students to develop awareness of their experience and to discover ways to practise that are enjoyable, useful and appropriate to their individual needs and capabilities.
‘It is not important whether or not we can touch our toes. What matters is how we practise and how we feel. Yoga is being our true Self.’
