PRIVATE YOGA LESSON
"Susie taught me a somatic yoga exercise last week to help relieve tension in upper body and neck. I can turn my head further now and pain level has reduced."
P. McN. Shorncliffe
“Susie also showed me a gentle somatic movement to help me work on releasing tension in the back of my neck and to treat my Plantar Fasciitis. The exercise has given me more movement in my neck and I feel a difference in plantar fasciitis for a while afterwards”.
L.M. North Lakes
“I experienced my first somatic yoga class yesterday with Susie, and I loved it! I feel great today and a niggling hip issue I had, has gone! The class is wonderfully paced, beautifully instructed and I felt safe and supported. I will be back for more!”
Pamela, Yoga Teacher
“Thank you so much for the class last Sunday. I enjoyed it so much and the time seemed to fly and what is more I felt so relaxed afterwards that I slept for 3 hours in the afternoon (a very rare occurrence).”
“the bodily decrepitude presumed under the myth of ageing is not inevitable. It is, by and large, both avoidable and reversible. I know this to be true, because I have seen it occur thousands of times…”
