Sue Shaw

Sue discovered yoga in her twenties and was immediately drawn to the sense of wellbeing, both in mind and body, that the practice brought. After several years of living abroad, Sue and her family moved to Bristol and she was introduced to Iyengar Yoga. The Iyengar method completely transformed her relationship with her yoga practice and yoga started to become a central part of her life.

This connection led her to want to learn more about the philosophy and practice of Iyengar Yoga. She undertook the 2 year teacher training course at Yogawest with Sheila Haswell which she successfully completed in 2018, to become an Introductory teacher.

For Sue, the difference with the Iyengar method is the precision and detail of the teaching. This provides a framework to follow in order to understand how to deepen your practice and in turn enhance your physical and mental wellbeing. The fact that the Iyengar method can support anyone, is the part that particularly appeals to Sue, “Iyengar Yoga is so inclusive. Due to the way it is taught, using detailed instructions and props for support, its benefits really can be experienced by everyone. Whenever I attend a class, or complete my personal practice at home, I always feel more grounded, connected and calm than when I started. It brings me a sense of peace which comes from the inside.  I am looking forward to helping my students discover that feeling.

Sue lives in Bristol with her husband and two daughters and loves spending time with her family exploring in their campervan.

Sue teaches a beginners course at Yogawest on Monday mornings: 11.15>12.30 (Beginners).
