Slow Flow for Restoration

This class is taught by:

Sue Montague

I discovered yoga at a health club in 2006, during a time when I was experiencing transitions and challenges in my life. I found that each hour I spent in a yoga practice served to calm and center me, and that the peace, renewal, and hope I experienced in my practice were qualities I could carry with me throughout my day. I practice (and teach) yoga as a three-part journey – body, mind, and spirit. As the body is strengthened and aligned physically, the mind becomes centered and the spirit is refreshed. I am especially pleased when students share with me the changes they notice in themselves -better breathing, greater strength, posture, more positive emotional outlook - and how they are taking their yoga practice with them off the mat. I’m excited to be joining the Azltala team and look forward to meeting many of you soon.

My history with yoga began over 10 years ago. I loved the way it made me feel, but it wasn’t until observing my friend teaching yoga in a homeless shelter that I began to really see and feel the mind/body/higher power connection. That experience inspired me to pursue teaching and I completed the RYT 200 program here at Azitala this summer (2018). Nothing brings me greater joy than loving and serving others and yoga is one of my favorite outlets for doing just that. I believe yoga is for EVERYONE and we can find healing and connection in places we didn’t know existed, in body and spirit. In Patanjali’s words, “…with a peaceful mind you can go out into the world and serve well.” Come to the mat and seek your peace. Namaste.

My yoga journey started about 4 1/2 years ago. I bought a Groupon to do heat yoga. My husband was in the late stages of cancer at the time, and I found peace in yoga. Actually, I think that yoga found me when I really needed it. As I continued my yoga journey and experienced changes in body, mind and spirit, I became totally hooked!

In 2016 I took teacher training at Azitala and started teaching at work and in the community. I received a lot of encouragement when I started doing yoga, and it is important to me to offer that to all students. I love yoga, I love teaching it, and I love the yoga community! I am excited and grateful to be part of the Azitala yoga community and look forward to teaching you. Namaste

My yoga practice began back in 2012, in Fargo, ND. I was 50 lbs. overweight, stressed out, and desperately seeking purpose. I was determined to make some lifestyle changes. Yoga ended up being just the thing I was seeking. I'll never forget my first class. I had walked in anxious & scared, and later walked out feeling strong & empowered. I promised myself I would stick with it. Quickly yoga became my safe haven. All of life's stresses became insignificant. All that mattered was the present moment. As my passion for yoga grew, I felt a pull to teach & share this practice with others. In 2016 I pursued teacher training here at Azitala. I am blessed to now have the opportunity to share yoga with all of you here at Azitala.
