Yoga with Sue Chudley
Yoga classes, workshops and individual lessons are held in BarnSpace at Millers Farm. The space has underfloor heating and is large enough for 16 mats with views out over the fields.
Yoga is an ancient, self-empowering practice that utilises a wide range of tools to enhance well-being and to maintain and restore health. These tools include postures (asana), flowing sequences using the breath with movement, breathing techniques (pranayama), relaxation, sound (mantra) and meditation. Classes are designed with the students in mind, depending on age, health, strength, flexibility and experience. Yoga is helpful for many illnesses as well as the stresses of modern living.
Sue Chudley has been practicing Yoga for over 20 years. She holds a British Wheel of Yoga teaching diploma as well as an advanced certificate from TKV Desikachar’s teacher training institute. This qualification enables her to teach individual lessons and to mentor teachers. Sue is continuing with Yoga Therapy training, enabling her to offer therapeutic yoga. She is interested in mantra chanting and a meditational approach to yoga practice.

One to One tuition or Yoga Therapy is the traditional way of Yoga which helps a person of any age or level of fitness to recognise patterns in movement, breathing or lifestyle which may be causing pain or ill health. A Yoga therapist uses the tools of yoga to help change those patterns and to optimise health. Yoga therapy is helpful in relieving pain, improving sleep, breathing, digestion, circulation as well as the effects of a stressful lifestyle, assisting in a greater sense of wellbeing. The tools of Yoga include yoga postures which are modified for the individual, movement with the breath, seated breathing practices, relaxation, meditation and sound. If the person has never experienced yoga before or has serious health problems, one to one teaching can be a great opportunity to explore the benefits of yoga. Some people may already see yoga as a process of self empowerment and may wish to further their personal development by establishing a home practice. Yoga teachers also benefit from one to one mentoring.
What to expect from One to One tuition:
A free half hour introductory consultation will assess general health, diet, sleep, work and leisure habits. From this strictly confidential information, Sue will plan a one hour lesson and a simple home practice which will include a combination of the tools of yoga; whatever is appropriate to the individual's needs. It is important that the person is committed to a short regular practice at home. This will enable her or him to become aware of, and change, patterns of movement, breathing, diet or lifestyle and help the teacher to see how the practice is working. At each subsequent lesson, the practice will be revised and adapted to suit development as it arises.
Lessons are generally spaced 2 - 4 weeks apart and cost £30 per hour when held at Millers Farm. Prices may vary at other venues according to space rental and travel costs.
