Sue Machin (Suzy) has been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2006 after completing a Diploma of Yoga Teacher Training in Sydney at Premier College with Gail Pisani.


Sue first discovered & practised Yoga in 1989, inspired by a dynamic style of Iyengar Yoga. In 1994 when on travels through India found herself in Rishikesh where she lived in an Ashram studying & practicing Yoga. Since then Sue has had a love for yoga, attended many classes of different styles & teachers which lead her to complete a teacher training in 2006.Sue has a passion for the outdoors, adventure & sports & has found bringing yoga into her life has made the perfect balance.


Sue has been a fitness instructor & also carries a Diploma in Sports Medicine for greater body awareness. She has run her own business teaching yoga, but now prefers to teach casually to spend more time with her family.

Sue does not follow any particular Guru or style but has been inspired by many teachers. Gail Pisani, an amazing spirited soul who taught with care & understanding. The most important thing I learnt from Gail was to leave your ego at the door, live from the heart & find your own truth. Sue has since studied with Kim McCormick (Teaching Yoga to Children) & experience with Paul Frechtling, Senior Ashtanga yoga teacher.

Sue teaches Hatha Yoga with a fusion of many other styles experienced over the years of practice. Vinyasa, Prananyama, Chakras & Kundalini are a focus in her classes. Sue inspires her students to work at their own level, honouring their practice to best suit them on the day, connect with their inner self by quietening the mind from daily chatter.
