Welcome

“Our life is frittered away by detail…simplify, simplify.Henry David Thoreau

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.   Happy to help if I am able to.

The first week of each month is currently including a chanting session on a Friday evening (3rd July at 7pm), as this week will include Shanti Path.  I have added it to the mantra page so you can download and bring with you!

All class details can be found HERE. and I really hope we meet on Zoom soon.  It looks like some halls may be opening their doors in a couple of months but I am not sure what that means for yoga…think there is some work to be done on that to help make sure we will all continue to be safe.  But I will keep you posted.  

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.

Things in Nepal are still not very good and Binay Lama, form he village you have all helped to rebuild, has recently been able to ‘escape’ to buy rice, lentils and rice as the the whole village was running out…there is still a travel embargo.  And he has real issues trying to get money from a bank.  So, everything we collect and send is literally helping to feed the villages in Bhimkori.  I am plotting a trip to Nepal, a historical version rather than trekking, for when this is all over…they will need as many visitors as possible.  And, I am still collecting for the fund!

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.
