About Sue

Yoga and meditation teacher, Sue McPhie is passionate about sharing these practices in a way that everybody can benefit

After growing up in Sydney and studying nursing and midwifery, Sue came to the Snowy Mountains in the 1980s. She met a local grazier while here and so decided to make the tree-change to this area to see what the relationship would bring.

It brought a happy marriage and 2 great children.

Sue loves this area, which she has come to call her own – the surrounding landscapes as well as the town of Cooma, which has so much to offer.

Yoga & Meditation

In 2000, Sue became interested in Yoga and practiced here with a number of teachers who have inspired her in both practice and lifestyle.

From the first time she tried Yoga, Sue knew it was going to be part of her life forever.

In 2015, Sue made the transition to teaching, having studied 350hr teacher training through My Health Yoga in Brisbane. Yin Yoga Teacher Training was completed in 2019 through Arhunta Yoga.

After trying different Meditation styles over the years Sue was keen to learn more about it.

Studying with the Australian Centre for Meditation and Mindfulness in Melbourne has brought an in-depth knowledge of many styles including Buddhist philosophy, Insight meditation, meditation for chronic pain and death and dying, and journalling, amongst others.

She is a member of Meditation Association of Australia.

Sue now has her Advanced Certificate in Guiding and Teaching Meditation and will have completed her Diploma by late 2021.

Sue loves sharing these truly accessible opportunities of Yoga and Meditation with people in her local community of Cooma and the surrounding Snowy Mountains, and looks forward to introducing them to many more students in the future.

Many Interests

Sue is also involved in community theatre with Cooma Little Theatre, Music in the Cooma District Band. She is a member of Cooma Cycling Club and enjoys regular social rides and coffees.

She loves walking her dog Rosie and spending time with extended family, as well as caravanning around our wonderful country, trying out other Yoga Centres along the way.
