Stretch Therapy

Stretch Therapy is safe, efficient body work which will help you experience ‘grace and ease’ in daily life.

Stretch Therapy was founded by Kit Laughlin, author of Overcome Neck and Back Pain, Stretching and Flexibility, Stretching and Pregnancy.

The key principle of Stretch Therapy is that the body mind complex is more than the sum of its parts – wholistic.

Techniques include, contract-relax, pulsing, long-holds, micro-movements, directed breathing and more.

This method of body work is extremely accessible.

Sue has studied and trained under Kit Laughlin for 20 years.

Meditation

I have been meditating for about 20 years and studied with a number of teachers and different meditation techniques including Vipassana (Goenka tradition).

Meditation is similar to developing a muscle, you need to put in the effort, practise, discipline and consistency.

In the meditation classes you will learn how to ‘sit’ and stretches to enable you to sit comfortably.  You will also be able to explore different meditation techniques to find one that resonates with you.

The key is to develop your own daily personal practise.

About Sue

On an impulse I enrolled in a term of yoga classes and have been practicing yoga ever since. I’ve been privileged to have some wonderful and gracious teachers cross my path and guide my practice. I often describe yoga as ice-cream, it’s all ice-cream, it’s just about working out which flavour works for you.

Teachers & influences

Through my first teacher Diana Jarrett, I met Ailsa Gartenstein who mentored me through my teacher training and I qualified as a yoga teacher with the International Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA) 20 years ago.  With a strong desire to offer safe and effective options for students I qualified as a Remedial Yoga Teacher through the Yoga for Health Foundation.

Meeting Kit Laughlin, the founder of Stretch Therapy, was a real turning point both personally and professionally – I personally use Stretch Therapy for functional flexibility and grace and ease in the body.  I also integrate the Stretch Therapy techniques into my yoga and meditation classes as it’s a brilliant ‘fit’ and provides options for all students.

I’m a Stretch Therapy Teacher having studied and trained under Kit Laughlin for almost 20 years now.

It was through Kit that I met Lawrence Graziose (Kwan Um School of Zen and Enneagram, Dharma Teacher) and became a student.
