While at Art School Sue started practicing yoga. Living in London in her twenties she studied with Ernest Coates (founder of the The School for Living Yoga) and in more recent years she had lessons with Sophy Hoare (a student of Vanda Scaravelli). Sue is a certified Yoga teacher and teaches individual lessons and small groups. She believes that we can all benefit from the many gifts that yoga has to offer.  

Sue's interest in the Alexander Technique began in 2007 when she started having regular Alexander lessons. From 2012 - 2016 she trained as an Alexander Technique teacher with Don Weed, founder of the Interactive Training Method Association. Since qualifying Sue has taught people of all ages. She believes that the Alexander Technique is a practical skill that can bring about constructive changes in our lives. Sue teaches the Alexander Technique modules in the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she works with musicians, actors and dancers. In the West End of Glasgow and elsewhere Sue teaches one to one lessons and small groups.

In 2019 Sue came across Karla McLaren's work on emotions when she read her book "The Language of Emotions - What Your Emotions are Trying to Tell You'. To deepen her understanding of this new way of relating to her emotions Sue studied Dynamic Emotional Integration® (DEI®) with Karla McLaren M.Ed., from 2019 - 2021 and she is now a licensed Dynamic Emotional Integration® trainer and consultant. Sue currently teaches online and in-person workshops which use artistic practices.
