Sue Woodd has been working in the field of Complementary Medicine for the past 25 years, founding her own school in 1991. She is co-founder of the Seasonal Yoga Teacher Training Academy and co-author of the book Energy in Season/Seasonal Yoga with Julie Hanson.

Sue was a registered trainer with the Shiatsu Society for over 20 years, and is a Senior Instructor with the T’ai Chi Union of Great Britain.

Not only in yoga studios and health clubs around the country, but in schools and colleges as well as in hospitals and corporate board rooms “ I believe there is an urgent need to put in place health and wellbeing strategies for everyone”.




Helen PybusHelen Pybus has been actively involved in the fitness industry for many years. During that time she has studied a variety of disciplines and has taught a multitude of classes to both children and adults. Upon discovering the mind/body field she quickly knew that this was where her true interest lies and today she devotes her entire career to mind/body concepts. Initially Helen undertook her Pilates training with Modern Pilates where she was one of the first Pilates teachers in the UK to gain the CYQ Level 3 qualification in Mat work, Personal Training and Back Care, the highest national standard currently in the UK.

She trained for a year with Body Control Pilates gaining her second Level 3 qualification. Over the last three years Helen has taken time to share her knowledge with Mat others on both national and now international levels by presenting at major fitness conventions and by guest presenting at Champneys health resorts nationwide. Helen also continues her work locally as an Exercise Referral Consultant in Pilates at her local PCT and still enjoys teaching weekly Back Care classes. Helen is also now the proud owner of her company Pilates and Health.
