Online Classes over summer

A quick post to reassure those of you who are enjoying online classes with me – I’m not stopping them any time soon! I’ve been having conversations with you all, my lovely students, and with the various places I work from, and the overall feeling is that coming to class physically is impossible in the short term, and logistically difficult/impractical in the long term. The earliest I’ll be back to teaching in my usual spots is likely to be September – if things don’t change.

I’ll keep the class list up to date as any changes arise, and you can sign up to my mailing list to get the weekly email with details & updates straight to your inbox.

And to those of you who have been coming to class thank you – practising some yoga with you all is the highlight of my week, and you’ve all been so generous with your donations. Because of your generosity I was able to donate a third of my earnings from last month to SARI UK and a third to the international Black Lives Matter movement.

I can’t wait to see you all in class over the next few months!

I’ve been so very grateful to all of you who have found a way to join in with classes over the past month. You’ve all been a pleasure to teach (as usual) and very generous with your donations. Thank you! I’ll be running classes as follows for the month ahead:

Weekly Classes:
Tuesday morning: 10-11
Thursday evening: 6-7
Friday morning: 10-11
Friday morning: 11.15-12.00 flow
Friday lunchtime: 1-2

We’ll be looking at semi-inversions this month, learning ways to get comfortable with legs above head or head below heart, and delving into all the benefits & rewards we can get from changing our relationship to gravity.

I hope everyone is adjusting to these tricky times, keeping well & staying safe. I’ve been attending a few online classes with my various teachers and enjoyed them, and I’ve run a trial class that went well. As a result I’m going to put on some regular classes via Zoom! All you need to join is a laptop or tablet with a front-facing camera.

To start with I’m going to do a few towards the end of the week and we’ll see how we go from there.
Thursday evening: 6-7
Friday morning: 10-11
Friday afternoon: 1-2

Payment will be donation-based, as I appreciate that lots of people are struggling financially at this time. You don’t have to pay anything if you’re not able to earn at the moment, but if you’re able to contribute then anything up to £5 would be well-received! At the end of each month I’ll be donating half of whatever you give in donations to my local hospital’s COVID-19 Appeal.

March/April 2020 Flow

This is the stick figures for the advanced flow we’ve worked on so far this month.
And here’s the video!

This is my first attempt at uploading a video of some practice for you all – click through on the title of the video to watch on YouTube or watch here! It goes straight into the flow sequence so get yourself stretched/warmed up first!

Classes with me & COVID-19 (UPDATED 4/5/20)

There’s lots of information out there about what we should & shouldn’t be doing regarding the current global pandemic. If you’re not sure what to do, you can check official NHS guidelines here.

Currently all workshops I have planned are going ahead, but as the situation changes I will reassess. All workshops and classes are cancelled and I’ll be doing all my teaching via Zoom for the forseeable future!

I’ve got a few workshops lined up for spring – this is the first! As always spaces are limited, so get your space reserved via email.

Where:
Bristol YogaSpace

When:
14:00-17:00, Saturday 18th April, 2020

How much?:

This workshop is a chance to practice a selection of poses that aid in relaxing and calming the mind and body. We will also explore the use of several breathing techniques to aid in our relaxation. There will be an extended guided relaxation session, so please bring blankets and extra layers to keep yourself cosy & warm during the moments of stillness. The studio has plenty of mats and blocks, but if you have other props you like to practice with feel free to bring them along. Parking is available onsite. Tea, coffee and some refuelling treats will be available after the workshop; as will I if there are any questions you want to ask or feedback you want to give after the session.

Welcome to 2020

I hope everyone has had a wonderful time celebrating the turn of another year, and the beginning of a new decade.

A new year often seems like a good time to start something new, and as a teacher I’m returning to foundations. We’re starting the year focusing on finding our grounding; this means lots of different things to different people, but for me it’s about finding actual physical connection with the earth. Expect lots of work in supine, prone and seated positions over the next couple of months so we can work towards stronger standing & balancing poses as the year warms up!

All classes are back on from Tuesday 7th – see you soon!

Class Adjustments 27/9/19

Quick note that next Friday (27th of September) I’ll be over at Bath Racecourse for most of the day, helping the awesome gang at the Jessie May Trust put on a charity pampering day.

Morning classes at Nuffield are covered, but lunchtime class (1300-1400) at Bristol YogaSpace will be cancelled! Evening class (1745-1845) will still be running.
