New Class 28th March
Am getting a little excited about starting this new yoga class in Quarndon next week (see details on my classes page). Please share with anyone you know who may be interested.
Yoga & Sound Workshop
There are still a few places available for the above workshop, so if you are interested in coming along please contact me for details.
Yoga Retreat - 18th to 20th April 2014
...there is only one place left! Let me know if you would like to join us.
Following on from the wonderful time we had in August I have booked Wortley Hall again. Please see the classes page for more information. If you want to join me please let me know as soon as possible as places are limited. Our theme will be Spring into Balance - very excited about this! In case you are on the fence about coming, here are some comments from last year's group.
'Thank you for a wonderful, restorative weekend...your wisdom, your generous spirit and your very well-balanced retreat have helped me take a great leap forward.' Joyce
'I've had a wonderful time this weekend and learnt lots on many different levels. As a relative yoga novice, the pace of the weekend was perfect for me... the content of each session always had something novel in it.' Nicola
'I absolutely loved every moment and took a lot of good things out of it. It was just what I needed in this rather stressful time of my life.' Isabel
'What a fabulous time I had! Really impressive weekend ... the whole weekend was wonderful.' Debi
'Thank you so much for a very beneficial week-end of Yoga...I gained a lot from the experiences you shared with us.' Jeff
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.'
