Vinyasa Flow yoga with Sue Marshall

7 day retreat | March 20th – 27th 2017

About Sue Marshall:

”I have always been fascinated with yoga since I was a child. A friend and I used to play around doing some of the poses and this desire to discover more spurred me on to take this further.

Movement has been key in my life, from gymnastics as a child to studying Dance at Laban and then also a diploma in Fitness Therapy so that I could learn more about the body and how moving can be healing in many different ways.

I have been teaching for 16 years and the discovery of Astanga Vinyasa Yoga whilst in Crete at Yoga Plus was a revelation, combining the wonderful flow of the postures was reminiscent to dance and I was hooked. I returned to Crete and did a Teacher Training with Radha and also David Swenson. I have studied Viniyoga and done a teacher training in that also and loved finding out more of the history of yoga and some of the texts especially Patanjalis Sutras.

My practice has evolved to a more Vinyasa Flow base and I was inspired by attending classes with Julie Martin at Brahmani Yoga in Goa and her fun and creative style of teaching.

I believe yoga should definitely be fun and have a lightness about it, if you enjoy something it inspires you to take it further.
My teaching is based in the Canterbury area in Kent. Recently I was in The Gambia participating in a lighting/educational project ‘Sunny Night Light‘ and stayed at Footsteps where I had the opportunity to teach some of the guests in their newly built shala.

This is a beautiful venue and I thoroughly recommend it and feel sure it will inspire anyone staying there as it has myself.”
