About Sue

Sue Neufeld

suenSue is a level ll ParaYoga certified teacher, as well as an E-RYT 500 (experienced registered yoga teacher) with Yoga Alliance. She completed nine advanced-study courses with master teacher Yogarupa Rod Stryker of ParaYoga in 2009. “Para” means supreme, ancient, and highest. After 18 years of sampling classes with an eclectic mix of local, national and international yoga teachers, Sue feels blessed to have found two lifelong teachers in Rod and in his teacher, Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D, spiritual leader of the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.

About Rod, Sue says, “He combines ancient texts, personal experience, Tantric science and world view to offer a prescriptive approach aimed at healing and awakening students,” she says. Rod initiated Sue into the lineage of Swami Rama of the Himalayas in April 2005.

Sue’s life is greatly enriched by her studies and travels with Panditji. She traveled to India on a spiritual pilgrimage to Kamakhya in February 2009 and again in January 2013 for Kumbha Mela in Allahabad and to Kajuraho, where the institute has a sacred shrine.


 

She also attended “Living Tantra” taught by Panditji, and is awed and inspired by the teachings.

In 2010, Sue and Kathryn Templeton, a fellow ParaYoga teacher and friend, took their 500 hour teacher training group to the Himalayan Institute (see photo below) to study Living Tantra with Panditji.

Sue is an national consultant for The Four Desires, a book published by her teacher, Rod Stryker in July, 2011. She teaches the course, assists Rod with workshops, and offers teleconference follow ups. All this is geared to helping others discover and live their purpose. Additionally, Sue works privately to help students develop home yoga and meditation practices.

“Her profound ability to teach yoga and meditation practices have changed my life on a very deep and personal level. With her guidance, I now meditate daily and I am forever changed by this practice. She is passionate about self-study and her own studies with her teacher, and she graciously passes these lessons along to those who are fortunate to be one of her students. With much encouragement from her, I have developed from a ‘fearful/bad back student’ to a serious student and yoga teacher who is currently enrolled in her 500-hour yoga teacher training program.”

"Sue Neufeld's teachings, energy, Para Yoga classes, and manner of being in this world have quite honestly changed my life.  I have been listening to and learning from Sue for nearly a decade.  I have experienced, attended, many teachers of the yogic tradition...none have spoken to me and made such a heart and soul felt difference as Sue has.  She both teaches and lives by the word of her teachers and her teachers' teachers...yet her teachings are stamped with her own unique spirit and thought.  Her wisdom of the ages and beyond is palpable in her teachings and in her presence.  Her voice and energy is always evolving and being shared.  She has a following wherever she goes and speaks to individuals in all walks of life.  I am forever grateful to Sue."
