Welcome

 

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

I really hope this finds you well and looking forward to the week ahead.  A little cooler perhaps!  Perhaps drier!!

 

There are a couple of dates coming up for when we have no classes….
26th February … no classes all week.
1st April…no classes all week (Easter)

Our next workshop is 2nd March – Tools for Transformation.  I cannot guarantee you will be transformed afterwards…but I will be sharing lots of simple yoga ideas for your home practice and daily living.  Class will be suitable for anyone with a minimum of 6 months continuous yoga practice.

Our next Walk for Nepal is on 3rd March…the weather in the morning is currently looking ok.  So let me know if you would like to join in…so I can confirm where we will meet.

Holiday in Nepal 2024…I am tentatively planning a trip to Nepal again this autumn if anyone would like to join me.  We will do a historical tour and those who wish we could do a three day trek for some stunning views of the Annapurnas.  Do let me know if you would like to be kept in the loop!

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. 

Nepal Update

Not exactly the tree you would see in Nepal but I love coastal redwoods as much as I love Nepal.  One day I will get to see the real big ones…hopefully.  I will be bringing an update soon…as I am off to the village.  So excited to be seeing everyone again! Huge thanks for your continued support.  It makes such a massive difference.

 

 

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

I passionately believe that yoga is for EVERY BODY; it really doesn’t matter what you are dealing with in life…yoga is truly accessible.  At the moment I do not have a regular chair based yoga class running…but I will be offering this in the future.  It may be small groups or individual sessions depending on your requirements and my availability.  It will be suitable for anyone who wishes a more gentle, therapeutic yoga class; wether you are a beginner or not;  those with cancer, ME, MS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, COPD etc. The emphasis of our work together, will be 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.
