Welcome


“A flower does not use words to announce its arrival to the world; it just blooms..”
 – Matshona Dhliwayo

Namaste!  If you have just arrived on this website for the very first time…I wish you a very warm welcome!  Things are going to be a little different whilst we cope and adapt to the ever changing Covid-19 problem, so please do bear with me.   If you can’t find what you need…please do email me and I’ll get back to you asap.

From Monday 30th March 2020…all classes will be online.  There is a new programme too, and some classes will be free…just to help support you.  All the details are HERE.  Each class will be run through ZOOM and you will need to have downloaded this on your smart phone, iPad, tablet, laptop, MacBook, PC or Mac.  

Before joining any class you must complete the Oakwood Yoga Health Form GDPRBWY and EMAIL it to me prior to 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.   

Today, 26th March, a newsletter has gone out to everyone on the mailing list and it gives more detail.  But it is also explained on the class schedule page.  I do hope this all makes sense and that you can join me in the comfort of your own home soon.  Stay well and healthy.  xx

 

Masterclass Calendar

These are all on hold at the moment as they are classed as gatherings…but I am working on some extended online classes.  Not sure yet how it would work!

 

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.
