Nature meditation support group in safe, socially-distanced, outdoor locations
Join me and a small group of others in the beautiful setting of Thistledown Farm to spend quiet, simple time in nature with led practices intended to settle the nervous system and soothe anxiety.

With simple movement and breath techniques, mindfulness, meditation and exercises inspired by the Japanese art of forest bathing we will relax together in nature.
Sessions start at 10.30am for 45 minutes @ £7 (concessions please ask) and will take place in most weather
Forthcoming dates: January 17th and 24th, February 7th and 21st 2021
Places are limited and booking essential.
Yoga is not a religion and you don’t have to be bendy to enjoy the benefits of a regular practice. A yoga class includes physical postures ( both static and flowing sequences), breathing exercises and meditative techniques, all designed to fit around the people attending – there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.
We practice with bare feet on a sticky mat wearing clothes that are easy to move in. We might also use props (blankets, straps, blocks, bricks, bolsters) to facilitate more ease. All kit is provided in class.
A regular yoga practice can be an accessible path to awaken to the potential of your deepest self. The yoga mat provides ‘you time’ and every practice is an opportunity to listen, feel, reflect, and to connect with your body and spirit. As well as building strength, flexibility and balance in your body-mind you might just find yourself on the most wonderfully meaningful journey!
Over time, you will notice that the process that begins on the mat starts to ripple outward into your practice of life, influencing how you commune, live, love and express yourself in the world.
My teaching reflects my passion for exploring the many facets of the art and science of yoga. The style I offer has grown from the fertile soil of 25 years of yoga and movement practice, mind-body enquiry, personal development and a tenacious curiosity for life. I integrate elements from many approaches with a broad understanding of anatomy, a fascination with neuro-science and an ever evolving personal practice. My aim is to support modern living, to keep your practice vibrant and to empower you on the mat to create more beauty, more joy, greater freedom and more vitality in your life.
The classes are based on traditional hatha yoga postures and philosophies and modified through contemporary scientific understanding of the body and mind to support our modern lives. By moving with the breath and encouraging intelligent alignment in the body we can facilitate ease, openness and stability. Blend that with warm and genuinely compassionate teaching and a bit of dharma chat - there’s a recipe for reflection, re-invigoration and release.
