Saturday Yoga Workshops
It is getting closer to summer holidays for everyone but just in case you are wondering what to do when life returns to normal in September...I will be starting monthly classes on specific themes. There will be more info here soon and in my newsletter. But to wet your appetite(!) titles so far are Partners Yoga, Mudra and Mantra, Raja Yoga. These classes will be held in Quarndon Church Hall on a Saturday morning. Let me know if you are interested. The aim will be to look a little deeper at the practice, with some light heartedness along the way! xx
Yoga & Walking Retreat - 25th to 28th September 2014
My retreat weekends seem to be becoming very popular and I have booked another for this year in the beautiful Lake District. I have recently rediscovered this gem of our countryside and feel very lucky to have found an equally lovely place to do yoga from! The details of the weekend are on the classes page. Please have a read and let me know if you are interested. The walks will be around 3 to 4 hours in length depending on photo stops!
When I was training to teach yoga to those living with cancer, I worked with a group of ladies who were part of a study in how yoga can help when you have cancer. They have written a book called One Voice about their personal journey with a gynaecological cancer. Each lady has written a poem or couple of paragraphs sharing their experience in order to help others and bring some awareness to gynae cancers. If you would like a copy (£10, all proceeds go to the Gynaecological Research Fund at Royal Derby Hospital) please let me know. It is a beautiful quality hardback - and the photography of us all is beautiful! Even the teachers have a little bit in there!
The Healing Power of Yoga
This class (Tuesday early evening) is suitable for anyone who wishes a more gentle, theraputic yoga class. It is a mixed class, suitable to the beginner, those with cancer, ME, MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis... Yoga is available to us all, no matter what our level of ability or health condition. There is something for everyone.
The emphasis of our work together, is on gentle but strengthening movements, simple breathing techniques, visualisations, meditation and relaxation practices, including Yoga Nidra. The only requirement is that you can get on and off the floor unaided. If you wish to attend, or if you know of anyone that may be interested in coming along, please contact me for details.
Restorative Yoga for Everyone
I get many enquiries from people wanting to come to a yoga class, but feeling a little unsure if yoga is the right thing for them and if my classes are suitable.
Yoga is beneficial to everyone...no matter what age you are or what your physical ability is. If you are breathing you can do yoga! It really is that basic! My classes are inclusive to all; there are no expectations other than you taking what you need at that very moment and enjoying it. Our work is balanced; making the connection between mind and body.
I provide a safe environment where everyone is supported.
Quote of the month:
Daily I seek happiness more and more within my mid, and less and less through material pleasures.
