Oakwood Yoga

Classical Hatha Yoga for everyone; 1 to 1; master classes, retreats and holidays.
Hari Om!
I am jumping for joy...Spring is here, the blackthorn is in bloom and the birds are nesting in the garden.  There is so much excitment about...not just in the air, in my yoga world too!  My feet have hardly touched the floor this last month! Loving life.
Some date reminders:

NO CLASS Monday 30st March at 09.30am in Darley Abbey
NO CLASSES Tuesday 31st March in Little Eaton
NO CLASSES for week of 6th April, although I am available for 1:1 work.
NO CLASSES 8th to 19th June, early warning so you can book your holidays!!

The Shipley class - Shipley Parish Rooms, Thursday 1pm to 2.30pm - is continuing through April.  Do tell your friends about it so it can continue into May as well!

Yoga Holiday to France...rooms are filling up so do let me know if you intend coming along.  More details below.

Nepal Yoga and Adventure...March 2016, dates to be confirmed.  I am still drawing up the details but do get saving as the flight will be around £700.  The trip will include all the main sites in Kathmandu, staying in a village and visiting Pokhara.  The walking element will not be full on trekking...gentle, but to places with great views and to experience local life.

Don't forget to read to the bottom...there is a little meditation and practice for you.  Would hate you to be bored during our Easter break!

Merino wool clothing is one of my favourites and I am so pleased that FROMClothing make yoga wear now from Merino.  Take a look at their website. They have offered my students a huge 40% discount between 31st March and 4th April.  There is more detail below...but I can hand on heart tell you that the quality is brilliant...wears and washes well and is SO comfortable.  And it is organic.

Really hope you enjoy April and discover new things with all this extra light we have!

Sending you love, joy and peace.

Master Class Dates

May 9th - 09.45 to 12.15 - Exploring Meditation
“You must hear the birds' song without attempting to render it into nouns and verbs.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
"Dhyana is the unbroken flow of thought toward the object of concentration." - Patanjali

We all lead such busy lives but through our yoga asana practice we learn to understand our physical body and we begin to feel the change in the mind. This helps us then to be able to sit and meditate. So, this class will be an opportunity to work physically, noticing the changes as we find quiet time to sit to meditate. If meditation is new for you that is fine as it will be fully guided. If you practice regularly, you may notice a wonderful change in the energy around you as you meditate with a group.
Bring a couple of cushions or meditation stool or extra blocks as we will spend some time on learning to sit properly.
   (Venue: Eventide Community Hall, Hayeswood Road, Stanley Common DE7 6GE))


July 11th - 09.45 to 12.15 - Vibration of Yoga
'Nada is found within.  It is a music without strings which plays in the body.  It penertrates the inner and outer and leads you away from illusion.' ~ Kabir

The word mantra means sacred sound, and nada yoga means the yoga of sound.  Mantras help us to focus, to dissolve physical tension and to encourage peaceful sleep!  They help us to become calmer and more peaceful.  This morning we will work with mantra in our physical asana practice but we will also spend time learning some very popular powerful mantras.  It is all about the vibration, the energy  of the sound.  There will be crystal singing bowls, rain drum and other musical items to have a play with.  (Venue: Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree, Derby DE22 2GG)

August 1st - 09.45 to 12.15 - Exploring Colour through Yoga and Crystal Therapy
"When you work with the energy of colour, fear, suspicion, and anxiety give way to clarity, peace, and a deeper knowing of what is forthcoming in your life!. - Laura Alden Kamm

This will be a joint class with myself and my lovely friend and crystal therapist and yoga teacher, Jeanette Bunyan.  Our asana practice will work on the colours of the chakras and you will guided on the chakra most relevant to you currently. (Venue: Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree, Derby DE22 2GG)

 Corporate Yoga

The practice of yoga at work enhances the health and well being of staff members and it improves the harmony and productivity of the organisation as a whole.
Everyone is involved and all will gain something from each class, whether it is increased fitness, a calmer, sharper mind or just simply a chance to take time out.
Each class is tailored to those present with all levels of fitness and experience catered for.
  Every class includes some physical practice and mindfulness meditation.

If you would like me to come along to a team meeting, or be part of a team building day please let me know.
