Susie is a qualified Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Restorative Yoga teacher and what she loves about Yoga is the stillness and space it can create in the mind.  Susie is passionate about the powerful connection between the Mind and the Body, and how this influences physical and mental health. 

This passion has led her to deepen her studies into Meditation and she is experienced in practising and teaching many forms of meditation, including Mindfulness, Zen, Yoga Nidra and Integrative Restoration (iRest).  She has completed a 200hour Meditation Teacher qualification with the Yoga and Integrative Medicine Institute and has completed Level 2 Integrative Restoration training with the Integrative Restoration Institute.

Susie says - "I love helping my students find the stillness in themselves, that quiet energy that centres and grounds the body and mind.  My classes have a focus on cultivating the mind-body connection through movement, breath and keeping the mind firmly centred within."

As well as teaching Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga, Susie is especially drawn to Yin and Restorative Yoga practices, and she uses the space in these practices to bring meditation into the asana.  

Susie is grateful to have had the guidance of many renowned teachers including Joe Barnett, Shiva Rea, Swami Mukti, Lizzie Lasater and Jo Phee, and she continues to learn every day from both her teachers and her students.

Susie teaches studio classes in Brisbane at SoHo Yoga (Newmarket/Fortitude Valley) & Santosha Yoga Space (Paddington).  She also works with the Australian Army teaching meditation to injured soldiers to assist their recovery.

Susie teaches private and corporate yoga, meditation and myofascial release sessions.  When she is not on her yoga mat, her other passion is holistic health and she is a qualified Clinical Nutritionist working at Kula Health (Newstead) and on a mobile basis (yes, she makes house calls!).

what people are saying about Susie Garden

Gordon A.

I find Susie's classes just wonderful. She has a very caring nurturing soul which she purveys to her class members through her calming voice, accurate demonstrations and personal adjustments when necessary. I attend her early morning classes, a shower and brekkie and at my office desk, I feel a million dollars.

Susie's classes are structural and fun. She provides a nurturing space for new yogis to grow and keep experienced ones challenged.


I tried Susie's class as I was looking to get back into yoga, not confident that I would feel comfortable in a class but needing to do something about my anxiety levels, my shallow breathing and my racing mind! I cried in the first class as I experienced the quiet and the tension release as well as the unconditional kindness from Susie (she also has a great sense of humour). The calm, nurturing hour that Susie provides twice a week is integral to me staying well, physically and emotionally now and very much something me and my muscles look forward to!
