Hello and Welcome! For the first time in ages we have had blue sky all day and no rain since 9am. If you are reading this from a flood hit area…I really do hope all is well with you. I am passionate about the benefits of yoga and in all my classes I hope just one little nugget stays with you; to inspire you to practice on a daily basis…even for a minute! If you can’t find what you hoped…please do email me and I will get back to you asap.
On 22nd Feb I ran the Our Heart’s Desire masterclass and it was really well attended and such wonderful energy. The next one is 4th April…Sounds of Spring and it will be an uplifting practice with some laughter along the way hopefully. I have just updated the masterclass page.
This is a rare opportunity….but there is room in the Monday evening class at Allestree Memorial Hall, Allestree, Derby … we start at 7.30pm. If you would like to join us please do contact me as you do have to prebook and pay up front.
Our fundraising for a local group called Nourish that feeds homeless people in Derby every Monday evening, is going really well. So far we have raised £545. If you have any spare packaged, jar or tinned food, crips, chocolates etc..please bring to class and I will happily pass them on.
If you are thinking of trying one of my classes you are very welcome. The full class schedule will give you times and locations. Please do bring your own mat, block and a blanket/cover for relaxation. Wear comfy clothing…don’t worry about shoes as we remove those from the outset! I do sell mats and blocks if that is helpful.
I have updated the Masterclass page with all the classes programmed until the Autumn.
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.
