Tutor Bio - Sue Northrop

I am a qualified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist. I’ve practised Yoga for many years, but as a career, I came to teach later in life as my interest deepened, and I could see the many benefits. I trained in Inclusive Yoga in 2015 and the Scottish School of Yoga Therapy in 2018. Other training includes Gentle Years Yoga, YIHA and a master’s in dementia studies.

I work with Melanie Cook to run Yoga Moments – training in Yoga and dementia. I teach inclusive yoga on Zoom and in person and work with care homes, day centres and the Musselburgh Meeting Centre.

I run Dementia Friendly East Lothian (DFEL), a social enterprise that promotes better lives for people affected by dementia.

All payments for my yoga work go to DFEL, which provides free yoga and training for people living with dementia, unpaid carers, and community-run organisations. Thank you for supporting my work!
