Welcome


“Drive out one by one the small obsessions that torment you.  Silence desire, ambition and anxiety.  Be still.  Let the quietness fill you.  Be one with every living thing.” ~ Pam Brown


Namaste and wishing you are very warm welcome.  I really hope you find something of interest throughout these pages, do have a good browse, if you need any help, please get in touch.   

I don’t know about you but I have had a lovely week…really enjoyed classes this week as we have worked with the warrior sequence to remind to let go of fear…or whatever it is you need to let go of.  And we have planted seeds in our meditation!  I will try and record the warrior sequence so it is more accessible.  Thanks everyone as a few people have returned after two years of me not seeing them..which makes my heart sing louder!  On that note:

The next masterclass, Your Heart’s Desire, is on February 12th.  If you would like to join me let me know..it is a live class at Breadsall Memorial Hall and I will limit numbers.  Also that week I am hoping to do a yoga walk.  It will depend on weather but could be the 11th or 13th…we need dry and clear; am proposing we head to Stanage Edge.

All links for classes are on the Class Schedule page.  It looks like I may be having a tiny break in Feb around the 7th but I will confirm that next week (31st Jan).

The Spring Yoga Retreat  – March 11th to 13th 2022.  There are currently no spaces for this retreat, but if you wish to be added to a waiting list please do get in touch.  Thanks so much…it really is a special weekend.

The big news this week is that work has started on the Water Project Proposal for Dada Tol.  They’ve send me photos of the guys digging trenches and all the pipework has arrived in the village.  It is so good to see as it means they are earning something as well.  We are still collecting money for the village so, if you would like to donate to the village you are very welcome to via our gofundme page.   All money raised, every penny, will go to the village – helping them help themselves.

All class details can be found HERE. and I really hope you can join me.  Please feel free to share my details with friends and family as I would love new people to come along if they are thinking of trying yoga.

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.

 

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.
