My Qualifications

Yoga teacher’s diploma – Australian Yoga Masters’ Association

Certificate Prenatal Yoga teacher – Purna Yoga, Byron yoga centre

With a professional background in Nursing and Midwifery, I have an interest in yoga therapy.

I practice and teach Hatha Yoga, concentrating on gentle stretching, therapeutic stretching, with a heavy concentration on breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation therapy (yoga nidra).

The classes are general in nature, with each pose tailored to each person’s capabilities.

The students display life changing flexibility which comes with regular practice. Bodies don’t change overnight, regular gentle stretching is key.

What They’re Saying

Excellent Teacher Sue Kearns is an excellent, friendly teacher who takes account of each person's skill level and limitations. I no longer go to yoga because of some unrelated health issues but if I were to take it up again she is the person I would go to. Highly recommended.
Chris Hardy
I have attended Yoga classes with Sue since she became a teacher. I have found her classes friendly, and very informative as Sue has an excellent knowledge of anatomy and musculature, all care is taken so that each student practices at their own level. Namaste, Marie
Marie Pamplin
New to Yoga I am very new to yoga and so far I have found Susan to be a great teacher and I think she has a good balance between explaining and demonstration. As a new student I felt at ease from the 1st lesson and I also enjoy where the classes are held in the most peaceful bush setting.
Eliza Betts
Excellent Teacher I have been going to Sue's yoga classes for a year now and really enjoy going. The class is in a quiet bush setting. Sue is very friendly and helps you work at whatever level you are at. I particularly like the way Sue explains why we are doing certain moves.
Dianne Fletcher
Yoga, Boost Juice & Sue - a great combo! I cycle 3 days and gym 2 days a week - I use Yoga to compliment my training and I should make more time for it. Sue really takes time to address all the disparate needs of all her students with care and humour. What a whiz she iz. Go Suzie
John Surian
Very Informative Teacher As Sue is also a trained nurse, she is excellent at explaining anatomy, so not only do you learn about yoga and way this benefits your life, you also learn exactly what parts of the body you are assisting. Sue is a really good teacher, who is easy to understand, and the class caters for all levels of peoples fitness and age thanks Sue.....Barbara Harvison

Love to S T R E T C H I've been doing yoga for a couple of years now. I have tried other classes, but always end up coming back to Sue. I love the way it makes me feel an inch taller and have such a beautiful sleep that night too. Not to mention the added bonus of fresh juice after the class. Thank you Sue.
Glenda Carpenter
Our Yogini experience Being a massage therapist and Exercise Physiologist I personally understand the importance of relaxation and flexibility. However I am someone who does struggle with flexibility issues having a condition where I have hyperextensive and overflexible muscles and joints. I was a bit skeptical in how yoga could help me given I don’t need to stretch. I chose to have an open mind and give it a go. My main focus was to correct postural instabilities while increasing my strength and balance.
Keira Walker
I have had the pleasure and fun of attending Susan’s yoga classes and recommend her highly.
Marcia Wells
Susan’s yoga classes are very professionally run and a really enjoyable one and a half hours of working your muscles and toning your body to suit your needs. An added bonus after our Tuesday night class is the very delicious freshly made vegetable and fruit juice drinks that Sue makes for us. So much fun and great company to do the class with.
