“My feet will tread soft as a deer in the forest. My mind will be clear as water from the sacred well. My heart will be strong as a great oak. My spirit will spread an eagle’s wings, and fly forth.” ~ Juliet Marillier
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. I love the above quote and couldn’t help but get Nick to take the photo of me on a recent walk!
My teaching schedule has changed recently as I have started a couple of courses, but all the class details can be found HERE. Please note that the classes for weeks 25th May and 1st June are very different as I take some me time off for study and replenishment!
There will be adhoc classes coming along so do keep checking back…or sign up to my weekly newsletter (it’s getting shorter!) which gives details for the following week. (see below)
Before joining my classes please 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. 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.
