About Susie

I began my yoga journey 25 years ago when I practised fir the first time at the start of my teacher training as an educationalist. I continued this journey exploring many different styles of yoga alongside my educational training.
 

Yoga became my inner sanctuary and showed me the way to being my most authentic self and that this journey of self mastery is integral to first of all improving and healing overall well being. It has taught me skills for navigating through life with presence, grace and truth. It helps to nurture a mindful approach to every day and it has served me as a reliable source of strength.
 

The quiet whisperings of the spiritual side of yoga call me back over and over again. And it is these whisperings that also called me to combine my practice with my 21 years as an educationalist to train myself to teach yoga. So in 2017, I qualified in Hatha Yoga and I have been teaching classes since. I began teaching yoga to the over 70’s and then expanded by teaching at a local yoga studio. I taught two classes a week; one relaxing and one energising class. I have also covered and managed another studio locally and covered other yoga classes as and when needed.

 

Yoga is my haven and I hope you leave my classes feeling more whole; mentally, physically and spiritually.

Who can do Hatha Yoga?

A Hatha Yoga practice may be used by anyone as a way to increase fitness, improve health, attain or restore greater balance and connectedness of mind-body-spirit, and develop focus and discipline. It is suitable both for beginners and for people who already exercise regularly.


It is recommended to check with your health professional if you haven't exercised for a while, are older or pregnant, have health problems or an old or ongoing injury. We would be happy to have a chat with you over the phone to answer any questions or discuss any concerns.

What is Hatha Yoga?

A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will usually involve a set of physical postures (yoga poses) and breathing techniques. These are typically practised slowly and with static posture holds in conjunction with awareness of the breath, to help develop mental focus and to connect
the mind, body and spirit.

 

Hatha means ‘force’ and is more traditionally defined as ‘the yoga of force’, or ‘the means of attaining a state of yoga through force’. So Hatha yoga can be considered as anything you might do with the body, including:

  • Asana - yoga postures (practised in any style of ‘yoga’)

  • Pranayama - breathing techniques

  • Mantra - chanting or reciting

  • Mudra - hand gestures

  • Shatkriyas and shatkarmas - cleansing techniques

  • Types of visualisations
