I really hope you have all had as wonderful a Easter as I did! I shared it with 13 of my students at a weekend retreat in Yorkshire...the sun shone and we did some great yoga together. A HUGE thank you to everyone who came along and made it so special. A HUGE thank you to Chris Baron as well for being a fantastic Hang player and giving us an evening of music we will remember for a long time.
Chris will be playing at my workshop on May 31st - details below.
I am also running another weekend retreat in the Lake District in September. There is more information below and on the classes page. It is already booking up so please get in quick!
I will also be teaching a days yoga for the British Wheel of Yoga on June 22nd at Papplewick in Nottinghamshire, when we will be honouring the energy of the sun. If you would like to come along let me know so I can send you some details.
Take care and thank you for all your support and loving energy. xxx

Chri s recently played at my weekend retreat in Yorkshire and he went down a storm. It was so beautiful and he plays from the heart. Very special music this will be.
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. More details will follow on the walks but we are aiming for no more than 8 miles on the Friday and Saturday and no more than 3hrs on the Sunday!
One Voice is now Published!
The ladies I work with on a Thursday night 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 shed some awareness. If you would like a copy (£15, 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!
The Healing Power of Yoga
This class 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 in this class 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 - we do try and have a laugh as well. Our work is balanced; making the connection between mind and body.
I provide a safe environment where everyone is supported.
Quote of the day:
'We all begin life with an eagel and a dove inside us. The eagle is strong and decisive; the dove is gentle and nurturing. As we grow in maturity the two birds coalesce into one, and we can show strength and gentleness simultaneously. Keep your eagle compasssionate and your dove fearless.'
