After working for a decade as a youth worker Sue was ready for a change. She fell in love with yoga after someone suggested it might help with her running, as she was training for long distance races. Initially she found it helped ease her physical body. It wasn’t long before she began to enjoy and crave the sense of calm it left her with after class. At the time she started attending yoga classes she was in an emotionally demanding career and yoga allowed her to escape into herself and sparked a new curiosity.
When the opportunity arose to take a six month sabbatical in the Lake District she chose to grab hold with both hands. Suddenly there was time to reflect, wind down and think about what she wanted more or less of in her life. This resulted in her training to become a yoga teacher, which she freely admits was one of the most empowering decisions she has ever made.
Sue has been teaching vinyasa flow for 8 years, adding specialisms along the way such as pregnancy yoga and slow flow yoga, and most recently undertaking Teen yoga training. She says she is at her happiest teaching with grass under her mat and blue skies above. She teaches anywhere and everywhere, from the local park, to her garden, further afield at UK festivals, local retreats and even online.
Sue is mother to a six year old and loves how she have been able to carry on teaching whilst spending time raising my son. She lives in a small village in Northamptonshire and when she's not teaching she enjoys walking her spaniel and lurcher with her husband and son.
In her words she says, "What I love most in life is finding joy in everyday moments, trying to live a slower pace of life (I’ve started spending a day a week walking in the forest) and if you haven’t guessed the general theme here, generally being outside! I love the sense of freedom and self confidence I’ve found through teaching yoga and I can’t wait to share my practice with you. Expect to move through different dynamic sequences, to both listen to and challenge your body and enjoy the calm and release from the everyday.". Namaste.
Sue will be leading an empowering and reenergizing yoga flow at our Beat the Winter Blues Fleekend taking place 16-17 January 2021.
