Just a quick update..3rd Nov 2014. I am about to start making changes to the look and feel of my website over the coming month or so. There could be periods of not seeing what you would normally expect...please keep checking back! I am still here.
The other way of keeping up to date is signing up for my newsletter or via Facebook...Oakwood Yoga. Or calling me.

Many thanks for your patience. Take care. xx

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!
Chair Yoga Class
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:
He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.
If you would like information on the classes, or anything else yoga, please contact me. I really look forward to hearing from you.
