Sue Furey discovered yoga in 1982 and is now passionately teaching classes and workshops at TYC, as well as keeping things running as the Operations Manager. “Teaching yoga gives me the opportunity to share something with others that I love and know has many benefits,” says Sue. IYTA NZ trained; whether teaching beginners or general classes, her focus is on being ‘in your body and breath to enable your mind to be ‘quiet’.’ Sue also teaches yin yoga and a therapeutic class for woman affected by cancer.
Sue feels teaching at TYC is a privilege and that the teachers and students are like an extended family for her. The gift of Yoga is one that that keeps on giving–if practiced regularly, and Teaching allows me to share this gift. “Yoga has been my teacher, student, confidant, healer and friend. When students tell me about their ‘gem moments’ in a practice this further ignites my motivation to keep practising and sharing.”
Outside of yoga Sue loves to be with her 3 precious granddaughters or tramping. Some of the other jobs Sue has had: I have been self employed in a pottery business; run training programmes for the ‘women returning to work’; & worked for local and regional Government.
