Welcome! Five Seasons Yoga is a contemporary vinyasa yoga practice which integrates graceful movements from qigong and other ancient warrior arts. Classes open with flowing sequences punctuated by held postures, breath-work and mindfulness exercises and close with a long guided relaxation/meditation. Poetry readings are used to frame the theme of the class and to help strengthen our connection to nature. All are welcome whatever age, size or level of mobility.
My work is rooted in Ayurveda also know as traditional Indian medicine and the 'sister science' of yoga. One of the aims of Ayurveda is to help us work with the qualities of spring, summer, autumn and winter through practices that support us during these different times of year. Because we approach each season differently you will learn a variety of yoga practices to help you self-care all year round.
As well as yoga classes I offer private lessons, yoga therapy and yoga & poetry retreats (Cocoon). Whether your goal is to lose a bit of weight, reduce your stress levels or help manage a chronic health condition, my holistic approach can help you embrace all aspects of your health and wellbeing.
My experience spans over 20 years in the health and fitness industry (lecturer, teacher trainer, manager and coach) where I have worked for gyms, health clubs, yoga schools and various training providers before setting up my own business. I am also trained in the visual arts and also hold a BA and MA. Creativity remains at the heart of all I do and has shaped the unique approach to my work. Wishing you great health and happiness!

"Su is an incredible yoga teacher and her lessons are so unique. She mixes yoga with elements of martial arts which produces a practice that is good for your body, mind and spirit. Su always prepares a lesson with such care and passion. She is attentive, sensitive and challenging. Each class is enriched with relaxation, meditation and poetry. I can’t think where you’d find a more beautiful, empowering and inclusive class."
