What’s Happening In The Yoga World  2019 ?


For me, 2018 was  an interesting year.I feel so blessed to do what I do and grateful to spend my life around yoga people. This journey is never dull as we face obstacles, learn about ourselves, our friendships with others and with ourself. I am learning more and more to see the beauty in a simple life and working, as always, towards more time for self care and fun. As I reflect upon 2018 I feel I have learned  a lot about life, what matters to me and how important yoga is to my world.

Please have a look and see if you might like to join me in these special seasonal yoga workshops to keep you supported through the winter months, and with  longer courses to further your yoga and extend your knowledge. Lots of fun, nourishment and joy and deep deep yoga to inspire you to reach your own full potential.


Thank you to all who have given to the Homeless of Manchester

We are still collecting Pot Noodles, Porridge Pots and chocolate.

The homeless are still hungry even though Christmas present giving is over. Collection is always at general classes.. Many thanks to you all from all at Cold Nights who go out twice a week, every week to serve these people

They are true Angels


With love and blessings to all 

I look forward to seeing you  for some lovely  yoga very shortly



Coming Very Soon To a Mat Near You?


Greet this new year with Nourishment and De-Tox

( Your Body Will Love You For It! )

This is the new year the new you.

You can pass through another year, coasting on cruise control. Or you can step out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never done before, and make 2019 as the year that you elevate from where you are & soar high. Make it happen!” Get rid of the winter blues, the sluggish, brain fog feeling and move into 2019 clean and dancing and with a clarity of mind. How will that happen? Yoga, mudras, breathing and by playing with a mind-blowingly different, dynamic meditation.

This is Nourishment on all levels

After all that we can fill the spaces we have created with nourishment good energy and a feeling of spaciousness that will stay with us.

Plus the company of like minded people to share a bowl of amazing soul food soup. It’s not just soup, with all the relevant health food bits in,

it has been created with love and Reiki energy.

You will feel it

You will leave feeling glowing inside and out. You will feel the wonderful, wonderful nourishment of being in great company plus

having a bit of a laugh and chat together.

This is an immersive experience, using yoga and sound to unravel the effects of our busy everyday lives.

You will be guided to a deeply relaxed state in which the body's incredible capacity for healing and repair can work at its best. Whether you're recovering from illness or injury, need a break from ongoing stress, or simply want to give yourself two hours of complete rest and relaxation, this workshop is for you. We begin with a restorative yoga practice, and Tibetan Healing exercises. We then take your mind on a journey through Yoga Nidra - deep relaxation, returning with the sound of sacred instruments and closing with some soft chanting.

This session is suitable for all, everyone is welcome.

Please advise me if you are pregnant, have a pace-maker or an abnormal heart rhythm so that I can adjust your session accordingly.

The third degree is the most exciting part of this amazing healing system.

It is the teaching degree where you will learn to pass Reiki to others. Here you will learn the two remaining  symbols, receive the third degree attunement and how to convey an attunement. Much like second degree, the third degree is  more about fine-tuning your life force energy (and not so much about amplifying ‘your power’). The third  degree is about dropping the ego’s drive to be ‘better’ or ‘more powerful’ and finally to realise that you are ‘Reiki itself’.  

Saturday 16th February 

9.30am till 4.30pm 


Including, of course, your full manual , lunch and

all Reiki exchanges.
