‘Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not even one man’s greed’. – Mahatma Gandhi
Hello everyone…just dropping in quicklybefore I go off on my meditation course. Am so excited to be doing this course and even more excited about eventually teaching some of the elements I have learnt. It has really allowed me to go deeper with my practice. And it is so simple…although needs heaps of practice!
It has been a hugely fun last couple of weeks with Sachi being here and we are now really planning our trip to Japan for next year. Do start saving! The retreat weekend at the end of July was a huge success again … so much so March 2018 is now fully booked. Feel so grateful to the Universe for bringing you all to me!!!
Coachoga – September 16th with Phillipa Bray….our final session of the year. Please book your place early. We will be working with the chakras during this session and will take time to work out if you have any imbalances and what you can do about that.
A reminder that there are NO classes 14th to 24th August as I am on a meditation course.
Monday 28th August … No classes as its bank holiday and I have my mum with me.
Wednesday 30th August...NO Spondon class but Allestree and Stanley Common as normal.
Christmas Craft Fayre for Nepal… November 26th. We will be sending all money raised to the Tara Women’s Project, which provides reuseable sanitary packs and health education to ladies in the Bhimkori region of Nepal, 3 hours from Kathmandu. This is an area we have helped rebuild houses in previously. If you would like to help on the day or can provide new/unused items for the tombola or raffle, or bake a cake…that would be wonderful. It will be held in Darley Abbey Village Hall, DE22 1DS.
16th Sept 2017 – Coachoga Number 3. The final session this year with Phillipa and I. Don’t worry if you haven’t been before…each session is a standalone on. This will be held in Allestree Memorial Hall, 10am to 12.30pm and will be based around the chakras..energy centres of the body. Cost is £15 but do email me to book your place.
7th October 2017 – Nada Yoga. A number of people have asked if we can look at mantra and sound with yoga. Of course we can…just hope you join me now! I plan on there being a physical practice, using some sound; looking at the bija mantras and a couple of the common mantras. But taking time to feel the energy and vibration of the sounds. We will have a deep relaxation at the end using sound also. My intention is that you leave with some new tools in your yoga bag…bringing sound into your every day life.

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 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. Space is really limited at the venue so do please contact me to check availability.
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.
