I started going to yoga classes over 16 years ago and chose the yoga with Sue by chance. What I’ve come to appreciate over time is the gentle way it uplifts you and teaches you how to lead a better life. Sue supported by her many years of teaching Yoga, seems to know intuitively what I need from each class. My day to day life and relationships with family and friends have been enriched from the lasting influence of this wonderful practice.
I have been very fortunate in attending yoga and meditation classes run by all three of these amazing teachers over the years. Sue, Jen and Orietta are all incredibly gifted in their teaching skills and have made a huge difference in my life – I have learned how to meditate which I am so grateful for and the yoga classes are just so relaxing and calming.

In 2001 my wife Shirley, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, in 2007 she was admitted to a nursing home. Owing to my ill health, leg operations for blocked arteries, a staph infection and a further operation for gangrene, I was depressed and no longer able to assist her. Seeking relief I then commenced to attend a yoga class led by Sue Brittain. Under her direction I began to embrace the practice. I accepted the fact that my present physical health is due to ageing and former life style, but there has been some relief. My mind is now at peace and I look forward to each day. I visit my wife 6 days each week, she greets me with a smile. Saturday; I practice “Mindfulness” I discourage visitors and other interruptions to experience the ‘Best day of the week’. Thank you, Sue.
After spending 15 years trying various styles of Yoga, I knew I had found what I had been looking for when I attended a Yoga Class with Sue and experienced Yoga Nidra. Amazing – and that was the turning point in my life. Sue’s classes and her gentle and supportive teaching style encouraged me to continue to incorporate yoga into my life. As a result I have now trained as a Yoga Teacher and am teaching down the south coast. I am so grateful that I have yoga in my life as it has transformed me in so many ways. Om.
I find the classes well organised, Sue explaining at the start what she will cover in the session. Likewise, she outlines at the start of the course what she is planning to cover & then goes through the plan comprehensively and at a gentle pace. The classes are non competitive, friendly & very very relaxing. Benefits of attending are the relaxation of the actual class & also the techniques to help relax during practices. Also after a class I feel more energised & calmer than before.
During my illness and treatment (cancer) I found I couldn’t do my art work – I had no concentration. When I got better I committed to an exhibition and then found I had a block. A couple of months ago I started to paint regularly again. I feel strongly that Sue’s Yoga class caused this.
In addition almost every day I used Sue’s tape throughout working on my exhibition. After lunch especially I found my concentration as well as my energy dropping and meditation renewed and refreshed me. So my appreciation hasn’t diminished at all.
