Welcome


“I hear.  I know.  I see.  I remember.  I do.  I understand.” – Confucius

Namaste!  Wish you a very warm welcome!  Happy browsing, but if you can’t find what you need…please do email me and I’ll get back to you asap.   Happy to help if I am able to.

Oh dear, things seem to change so quickly at the moment!  I sent a newsletter on Friday 25th, it’s now Sunday 27th and things have changed again in terms of October classes.  If you are on the mailing list you will be getting an email next week…but essentially the news is that my course has changed and I need to change things round a bit.  So, here are the class dates for October and fingers crossed nothing else comes along to challenge me!  All the links will be on the class schedule page each week.  Really hope you can join me.

The October timetable now looks like this:
W/C 28th Sept : all classes as normal
3rd October – Yoga Retreat Day, online – Deeply Listening
W/C 5th Oct: there are classes on Monday 5th ONLY
W/C 12th Oct: there are classes on Monday 12th ONLY
W/C 19th Oct: NO CLASSES
W/C 26th Oct: classes back to normal, including chanting for health on 30th Oct.
31st Oct: Masterclass (Magic of OM) at Breadsall Memorial Hall – please prebook.

Classes at the moment are still on Zoom, and they will be for the foreseeable future.  But I am looking at doing a live class somewhere and will let you know more soon…possibly in Belper.  Am trying to keep everyone happy!

All class details can be found HERE. and I really hope you can join me.  Please feel free to share my details with friends and family as I would love new people to come along if they are thinking of trying yoga.

I am also beginning to sort out the Spring Yoga Retreat at Wortley Hall in late February.  If you want to join me do get in touch as spaces usually fill quickly.

If you have never been to one of my classes before, please complete the Oakwood Yoga Health Form GDPRBWY and EMAIL it to me prior to joining a class.  When I receive it I will send you the payment methods…please pay prior to class.  If you are a new student we also need to arrange a 15 min call.  If you are unable to pay that is fine…just let me know.

 

Yoga for Those Living with Cancer

When I was about to complete my training with the British Wheel of Yoga, I was allowed to join a course that was specifically to teach yoga to people living with cancer.  It was a really in-depth course run by Julie Friedeberger, who herself had had breast cancer.  She taught us so much and I have been fortunate enough to share the learnings with so many groups since then.
If you are someone that is in this situation, please do get in touch as there is so much I can share with you.  You will be able to come to a regular class or I can work 1:1 with you if that is preferred.  Yoga is hugely beneficial in so many ways.  As a dear friend said once to me…’my regular weekly yoga practice helps me reconnect to my body’…she found that she was angry with her body for putting her through the trauma of having cancer.  She is great now.  If you would like to have a chat about how yoga can help then please do get in touch.

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.
The emphasis of our work together, is on gentle but strengthening movements, simple breathing techniques, visualisations, meditation and relaxation practices, including Yoga Nidra.  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.
