Sue

Dru Midlands team member

Sue is driven by a conviction that Dru yoga can truly make a difference to people’s lives at many levels, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. She believes that the Dru lineage, plus the practical applications which Dru have developed are a powerful combination. The teacher training course provides people with a firm foundation from which they can grow and blossom in many directions.
Sue was a high school teacher for 34 years and so was able to bring her educational background to the course. Actually she says that she finds assessing assignments on the course far more fascinating than wading through piles of exercise books! Indeed it is often on reading how the course has transformed people’s lives that convinces her that she is on the right track.
Since discovering that she has a serious health challenge, which you can read all about in her blogs, Sue has continued to work with DYTT but in a slightly different way and she has turned to the written word in order to continue teaching, since she is still certain that this is why she is here.
