Originally into Ashtanga and Power Yoga, Nic signed up for her first teacher training to deepen her own practice rather than a desire to teach. An injury led her to Yin Yoga, where she experienced the unique healing qualities and meditative benefits. This motivated Nic to want to develop and share her knowledge, so she undertook a further 100 hour Yin specific teaching certification. Nic's goal is to help students develop their own body awareness, overcome chronic pain and increase mobility. She believes Yin is a perfect complement to dynamic styles of exercise and that it benefits both yogis and other athletes.

Having learnt yoga with her mother from an early age the practice of yoga has filtered in and out throughout Sheridan's life. She felt it was apart of herself she wanted to explore further and so pursued teacher trainings in Bali and also with Julie Smerdon of Shri Yoga.

Susie has made yoga a part of her life for over 17 years, and decided to undertake teacher training to deepen her own practice and knowledge of yoga philosophy. Her experiences practicing in India and Bali uncovered a strong desire in her to teach, and led to her leaving her corporate career to pursue a life journey more in line with her personal values. She originally trained in Purna Yoga (Hatha based and Iyengar influenced) but her more recent training has lead her to specialise in yin & restorative. Susie’s love of yoga shines through in her teaching style, and her students always walk away from her classes feeling energised in the body and chilled in the mind.
