"Hi, my name is Sue,
A few years ago, I sustained a shoulder injury which led to surgery and months of rehabilitation due to bone, tendon, ligament and muscular damage. I was working as a District Nurse at the time, as months progressed it became clear after a poor prognosis that I would not be able to continue to work and took early retirement. Conventional Physiotherapy led rehabilitation took my range of movement to a static level and I was beginning to wonder if I would ever succeed in being able to raise my arm to above waist height again.
Spare time led me to my first Yoga class held in the local village hall, since then I have never looked back! My only regret is that I did not discover Yoga sooner! The immense difference I now have with shoulder strength, mobility and flexibility is a game changer. These achievements are not only felt in the area that became so limiting but throughout the whole of my body, and the one thing that certainly led to this injury was poor balance which is now 100% improved"
After practicing with incredibly supportive teachers, I eventually pursued my newfound passion which ultimately led me to a teacher training programme. I am a Yoga Alliance 200 hours certified trained teacher and BWY 100 hours foundation level 1.
My style of teaching is Hatha and Vinyasa (flow). Hatha classes use classical Asanas, (postures) that flow from pose-to-pose increasing strength and stamina with improvements in posture balance stability and fitness. This slower paced style also focuses on Pranayama (controlled breathing), some meditation work, and Savasana, (relaxation techniques).
Vinyasa flow classes work at a faster pace with each posture flowing in a fluid like way from pose to pose. My classes are ideal for the new to Yoga and mixed abilities with the capacity to explore own goals and limitations, classes will offer an all-round balanced practice"
I truly believe Yoga is for everyone!
