Massive apologies for not being available for the chanting class this week (19th)…I completely forgot.  With mum in hospital life is a balancing act…and I forget things!  Thank goodness no-one had travelled anywhere.  I will try to be better about these things…just human!!

I am really excited about the Coffee and Craft Morning in aid of Nepal.  We have some super stall holders coming with lots of ideas for Christmas and Birthday presents; a fantastic tombola; an exciting bottle of booze fund raiser; reflexology tasters … to name a couple.  Do spread the news and come and join us.  Every penny raised is going into the Water Project fund.  If you want to support or share with friends and family the funding page, this is the link to use, gofundme page.  

The next masterclass is on 4th December…helping us to prepare for winter.  Really hope you can join me…2.30pm to 5pm in Breadsall Memorial Hall.  There is more information on the masterclass page.

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.
