Yoga & Meditation
Mindfulness through motion – Yoga classes
Sue found in yoga a pathway to improved physical strength and flexibility; but more importantly, she found in yoga many benefits on a psychological level. If you would like to strengthen your body, and encourage a calm and positive state of mind, consider yoga. Contact Sue to arrange a tailor-made private (including small group) class designed to meet your specific health and fitness goals.
By using a combination of simple yoga postures, modern stretching principles, and meditation practices, yoga sessions with Sue create a setting conducive to releasing, relaxing, and re-energizing body and mind. All ages, shapes, fitness and experience levels are welcome at Sue’s yoga & meditation classes.
For more information, to join a class, or to arrange a private yoga session please email Sue.

Why Yoga & Meditation?
We can move into stillness through yoga. Yoga provides an opportunity to release, relax, and re-energise. Through physical postures, breathing, and meditation/relaxation exercises, the body and mind can find a place of stillness.
Through stillness, we can gain awareness – awareness of our body, mind, and spirit. Awareness of what it is we want and where it is we are going.
Yoga is a path to optimal experience. According to Csikszentmihalyi (Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, 1990), yoga relates in several ways to flow, and provides a useful model for anyone wanting to be in better control of their energy. Csikszentmihalyi wrote in Flow (1990, p. 106) that yoga can be regarded as “one of the oldest and most systematic methods of producing the flow experience.” Find out more about the flow experience.
Yoga is for all – all ages, sizes, shapes, and levels of fitness – from elite athlete to reluctant exerciser. Sue combines a scientific background in psychology and sport science (MSc & PhD), with yoga teacher training and ongoing professional development, to provide classes that are safe, focused, and enjoyable.
Private classes provide opportunity for greater individual attention and correction. Specific needs (e.g., medical conditions, injuries, personal goals) can best be met in the private class environment. Contact Sue to discuss your specific objectives and goals if a private class best meets your needs. Private classes can be booked for 1, 2, or 3 people at a time; or by arrangement, a small group.
