Located in Edmonton, Alberta,
Elements in Motion – Therapeutic Yoga can help ease pain and increase mobility.
If you live with pain or are experiencing restricted mobility or limited flexibility, let me show you how to decrease or eliminate your pain and improve your mobility. As a result of moving purely, you will feel less pain, and an increase in your mobility. You will be amazed at how quickly this change can happen.
After working with Sue my body has released deep layers of hidden tension. This release has enabled my spine to realign itself and as a result I have a more relaxed, yet stable posture. I feel more free to move. Thanks Sue!
It took my breath away - that’s what the pain in my chest did……it was medically determined that I had pulled a muscle – much to my surprise!! I was given the opportunity for a private session with Sue in hopes of determining specific moves to ease pain – it was terrific!!
My first yoga experience was at the Yin Yoga for Kidneys and Bladder meridian workshop. I learned that the relationship of movement of the body to energy flow in the body is one of the key reasons for yoga. I enjoyed the poses that allowed me to move in my own limited range of motion without discomfort (I am a 50 year old male). I learned how to use blankets, bolsters and blocks for support in the poses to allow me to hold the position without getting tired. I could really feel the increase in flexibility of my stiff spine. It was a great introduction to yoga and I plan to attend more sessions with Sue!
As a young adult who thinks I am invincible, Sue has been a blessing. I came to her with several injuries, the worst of which was a bulging disc in my back. I took a fall, and a few days later had shooting pains down one of my legs, and an x-ray showing that I had injured my T11. It was surrounded by fluid that was occluding my spinal chord, essentially pinching the main bit of my nervous system. I was nervous to try anything drastic like surgery, so I gave yoga a try. In a single one hour session, I went from being able to feel a golf ball sized lump on my spine to not being able to find the spot. It was like magic. I don't even remember what kinds of things she had me doing, but I can tell you that I danced out of that session. I am thankful every day that I let her work on my back. That will not be the last time I see her about an injury, new or old! Thanks so much Sue!
When I first started to take Therapeutic Yoga and Yin Yoga from Sue, a little over a year ago, I had such significant pain in my hips and lower back that I frequently couldn't sleep and would often be limping by the end of the day. The yoga that Sue has been teaching me has brought me to a place where I now experience little to no pain each day. Thank you so much Sue for your knowledge, care, support and encouragement. I look forward to the day when I will have no pain. Couldn't have done this without you.
I had a strange thing happen to me yesterday, after I saw you. As I was driving home, stuck in gridlock, a bolt of energy shot through me, up and down my spine. It was weird and wonderful. Spontaneous joy and a deep sense of love engulfed my entire being. I felt a deep connection to everything, big and small; smiling from the inside out. I was at peace. A shift so big that it reshaped something inside me that before was formless and hidden. This kind of thing has happened to me before after practicing yoga, but not to this degree...
A special thanks to Sue I joined therapeutic yoga after a friend told how different it was from regular yoga. I have had lower back issues for about 5 years. Sciatic nerve pain from my right hip to ankle. I have been going to yoga and Sue has really helped me stretch and release most of my tension.I really surprised myself last week, I actually could lift my leg onto my kitchen counter and get a vase from the top near the ceiling. I could not do that for a couple of years already. Too much pain in back and leg...
I must say, I find the classes really helping me. I look forward to coming to the classes. I am finding myself stronger little by little. Some days less pain, some days maybe more. Still feel some pain in the tail bone area, and the pain in the lower back and hips maybe not as much some days. Have to take it day by day. But all in all, I am finding myself stronger as each class passes. I noticed from one of the first classes I could not do some of the poses for long, now I can hold that pose longer. Yay me.!...
I’d been searching for a Yin Yoga class and was overjoyed when I finally found one with Sue Kruszewski. She’s a great yoga teacher for new participants to this practice. Sue has helped me open up my hips with Yin and I’m looking forward to her class in the New Year at Southwood Community Hall.
With the hectic demands of running a small business and caring for young children, I needed an outlet for myself to just unwind, de-stress and improve my overall wellness. As someone who is self-conscious in group exercise classes, I opted for Sue's 1:1 yoga class which has been a perfect option for me. Sue caters each class to my specific needs on that day and we do poses that focus on those areas at a pace that is comfortable. Sue assists me into each pose to ensure I am doing them in proper form and is really attentive and engaged throughout, explaining the benefits of each pose as we go...
I will highly recommend Sue to anyone who needs help with chronic/past pain. For the past month Sue has been working with me for a past shoulder injury. I had injured my shoulder about fifteen years ago, and since then have had reduced mobility in my right shoulder. Sue approached my needs in a very professional and capable manner. In four sessions I have already experienced increased mobility with the injured shoulder. I am using my right arm more then before working with Sue...
I would just like to say that I have been to see Sue Kruszewski. She is truly amazing! I have been to see her only a few times. Before I saw her I was in constant pain. Through my experience with her there has been times that I have had no pain. Totally unbelievable for I have been in pain and getting worse for years. She is a Blessing to me.
I signed up to try Sue’s therapeutic yoga sessions because I had issues with my shoulder, hips and feet. I have attended four sessions to date. She has focussed on different areas of my body from session to session, giving me exercises to work on at home and reviewing how they have or have not worked for me. I have seen immediate improvement in my shoulder and hip areas. The description I have used during the exercises with her is that the areas we are working on generally become hotter (in a pleasant way) and less “gummy” as the joints start to work more freely...
I have done three therapeutic yoga sessions and I have seen an amazing amount of improvement in the way I feel. A major concern for me is my back especially since I suffer from scoliosis. This has caused me to suffer from constant back pain for years. Another problem I have is my knees which are very weak and have a constant clicking. I did the stretches provided by Sue as often as I could which ended up being about five days a week. After the first session I found that there was almost no pain in my back and within three days the clicking from my knees stopped as well. Sue and I did another yoga session four days later and I felt the improvements even more! My knees felt relief and my back was considerably less tense and without pain. At work the following day we were moving banker’s boxes full of files up to the storage area and this put quite a strain on my back. The following morning I felt quite a bit of pain and tension in my back from moving the boxes which lasted for a few days. I found the yoga poses did help to relieve the pain, and by the time I did the yoga session a few days later the pain disappeared yet again. I am very impressed with the therapeutic yoga and how it has helped me so much! I have taken a few alternate routes to try to eliminate my back pain and therapeutic yoga has done it the fastest and most effectively. I will be continuing to practice these poses as religiously as I can because I am so happy with the results it has given me!
I decided to do some sessions with Sue to see if she could help me with the hip tension and sciatic pain that I am prone to. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly my body responded to the simple exercises that Sue recommended. After my first hour-long session I walked out feeling much better than when I went in, and as I did the 15 minutes per day of exercises that she recommended as homework, I noticed an even greater sense of physical stability and balance (and less discomfort!). I have seen Sue for several sessions now and am impressed with how far I have come, and I now have a toolbox of exercises to draw from when my body reverts to its old patterns of tension. I recommend Sue to anyone who is willing to put in a little bit of time daily to achieve the goal of better health. I am so grateful for her guidance!

Sue, your classes really work - my quads are a bit sore today, and I teach (yoga) 3 times a week. I hope to attend another session with you in the summer.
I have suffered chronic migraines for over 40 years and have run the typical remedy gambit of medications, accu-everything, chiro, exercise (including yoga), massage etc. with limited results. Four months ago I enrolled in a weekly group Therapeutic Yoga session led by Sue. The migraine severity and duration diminished! I was so impressed with the results that I booked private sessions. With Sue’s guidance and less than 10 min. /day homework, the improvement continues. Sue understands that every ‘body’ is unique and this is reflected in the individual coaching in her group classes. She truly cares about her clients’ progress, and achieves this with knowledge, clear communication, and perhaps most important – fun!
Real men don’t do yoga, right? They DO if they want to improve their breathing efficiency and work on their sore/arthritic backs, shoulders, hips, etc. I started Therapeutic Yoga in January and relief was immediate. Sue explains each position and how it benefits whatever joint or muscle we’re working on. And better still- no jumping around being a tree or warrior or dog. I’d recommend this program to anyone that wants to feel mentally and physically better. Thanks Sue!
LOVED IT!! (Therapeutic Yoga Workshop for Supple Spines) Thank you so much. Although I initially felt awkward (not taking yoga before) you made me feel very comfortable in a short time. I felt much more energized this afternoon – I’m assuming from opening up channels. I also felt much more limber - hard to believe in one session – but thankful. Sue – I feel like an Angel pointed me in this direction. I drove by the billboard several times before I had the opportunity to take down your number.
