“Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.” ~ Lao Tzu” 


Namaste and wishing you are very warm welcome to these pages.  I really hope you find something of interest, do have a good browse, if you need any help, please get in touch.   

Those that know me are aware that many plates are spinning for me at the moment!  If you are thinking of joining my classes please be aware of the following “holiday” periods:

MAY NO CLASSES week of 30th May
JULYNO CLASSES all month

Huge apologies for the above but I just cannot fit everything in!  When the house move has happened I will be able to offer more personal classes and really want to start working with those who cannot make a normal class due to health concerns.  I am trained to work with people living with cancer and this is of particular interest to me. If anyone reading this feels they fit into this category do let me know.

The Water Project Proposal for Dada Tol  is now complete.  Every household has their own tap and water meter.  So so happy for them, and huge thanks to all of you for supporting it.  Click here for a little video from Binay… I love how this lady has her plants on top of the tap.  We are still collecting money for the village as so many projects were stopped due to the pandemic so if you are able to support in anyway it is always appreciated.

All links for classes are here… Class Schedule page. 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.

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.
