Musician and professor by day, yoga teacher by night (or something along those lines), Sue (a.k.a. Dr. T) has been a music professor for over 15 years, the last 10 at the Schwob School of Music at Columbus State University. Since teaching is part of what she lives and breathes on a daily basis, making the transition from yoga student to yoga teacher was a natural progression. She completed her 200 RYT training in August of 2018 at Yogafly in Auburn, Alabama with Nicole Agostino and teaches Yoga for Performers at Columbus State University. Sue also teaches at Art of Yoga where she has been a dedicated student for the last 9 years. Sue’s specific yoga interests are yoga for the health and well-being of musicians, alignment, connecting with breath and meditation. You can follow her journeys of music, yoga, chickens, bees and life on her facebook page and personal website. https://www.facebook.com/susan.tomkiewicz http://susantomkiewicz.wixsite.com/home
