Sue increased her knowledge by going to India to study with BNS Iyengar in Mysore. Practicising Astanga and deepening her understanding of the spiritual aspects of yoga.

This journey involved a Mantra Initiation with a Vishnava Guru to deepen her connection with spirit and to move her life path even further in the direction of teaching Yoga and healing. Sue was given a spiritual name "Sudasi" - meaning Servant of God as well as training with Dharmavirsingh Mahida in Pune, studying yogasana, Ayurveda and yoga philosophy.

When you attend one of Sue’s yoga retreats, it’s an opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate your life from a different perspective. At times it is a journey to the heart of quiet and other times it’s an experience of freedom in a spontaneous expression of inner joy, or a sense of connectedness. The retreats encourage students to continue their yoga practice with a new vigor and inspiration while feeling relaxed, mentally refreshed and uplifted. The effects are often felt for weeks after the retreat has finished creating an opportunity for a life changing experience.
