BIO

Sue Theroux, RYT-500 certified yoga teacher and Yoga Therapist, has been an avid yoga practitioner since 2007 after finding yoga following knee surgery for a running injury. Where the rehabilitative effects of yoga successfully restored her knee, she developed a peaceful acceptance of her body. Sue experienced what was to become a journey throughout the whole body. The practice of yoga can help you become physically strong while softening the mind to life’s many twists and turns. Yoga has been transformational for Sue and she hopes to share her experience with others to help cultivate vitality, camaraderie and the sense of true self.

Sue began her training by receiving her 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Stockbridge, MA under the direction of Sudha Carolyn Lundeen, Priti Robyn Ross and Devarshi Steven Hartman. Also at Kripalu, Sue obtained her certification in Chair Yoga having completed “Teaching Chair Yoga:  The Sitting Mountain Series” training with Lakshmi Voelker.  Along with meditation, relaxation techniques, and breathwork, Sue will adapt postures to a chair bringing the therapeutic benefits of yoga to those unable to take part in traditional yoga classes.

Sue continued her journey into self-discovery and her love of yoga and in August of 2014, she completed the 300-Hour Yoga Therapy Professional Training, a program of the DAYA Foundation under the direction of renowned Yoga Teacher and Author, Sarahjoy Marsh. During this training, Sue has expanded her knowledge and expertise in the areas of Adaptive Yoga, Yoga and Strength Conditioning, Restorative Yoga and Pranayama (Breathwork), Mindfulness-Based Yoga as well as the Psychology of Yoga and Yoga for Mental Health.
