SUE WARD, FeLDENKRAIS PRACTITIONER
Sue was born in Scotland and raised predominantly in Perth. She worked as a Clinic Nurse specialising in the care of Oncology and Haematology patients for 20 years. During the last 10 years, as her children grew to be adults, her focus shifted to more preventative health measures and wellness modalities. She has always believed prevention is better than cure. She started regular yoga classes a few times a week in 2006 which led to an increased interest in the balance between mind and body. In 2014, Sue commenced the four year Feldenkrais Practitioner Training Program being run in Perth. Having graduated as a Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement teacher in 2015, she is particularly interested in providing classes to help people move with greater ease and comfort. Following Feldenkrais principles, her classes provide alternative options for easier movement. To achieve ease of movement, Sue believes that the key is gaining a greater sense of self through the integration of breath with slow gentle movements.
