Etowah Valley Yoga is located in Cartersville, Georgia, in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, approximately 40 miles north of Atlanta.
Sue Hopkins, E-RYT 500 has been teaching yoga in Cartersville and the surrounding communities since January 1999. In May 2002 Etowah Valley Yoga opened it’s doors and began offering residents of Cartersville and North Georgia a “yoga only” center. The well-equipped center offers a quiet and calm studio for traditional yoga classes as well as workshops.
After a decade of personal practice and reaping the benefits of yoga first hand, Sue attended a teacher training program at Lighten Up! Yoga in Asheville, North Carolina, and in 2001 registered with the Yoga Alliance. Because learning is never finished, Sue continued training over the years and in May of 2005 registered at the 500 hour level. After teaching a number of years and a specific number of hours the “E” (experienced) designation was added to Sue’s credentials. As an E-RYT 500 Sue is able to train others to teach yoga.
Because of her special interest in the therapeutic application of yoga, Sue continued her education and in August of 2007 completed a 1,000 hour training to become a Professional Yoga Therapist.
With her years of personal practice combined the level of training and teaching experience Sue is able to offer classes that are safe, challenging and enjoyable for any level student.
Sue has been registered with the Yoga Alliance since 2001.
Member International Association of Yoga Therapists since 2004.
