Mental Wellbeing week was a great success in new online format due to Covid.
Lots of new people attended yoga4health free taster classes including gentle years seated classes. Thanks to all who came along and some of whom continue to attend my regular classes.
March - May 2020
Due to lockdown and not being able to teach my classes face to face I attended lots of online courses with The Minded Institute in London:
Completed 10 week block of Yoga4Health classes with NHS colleagues in Aberdeenshire. The class started off face to face but due to Covid lockdown we ended the course online. A great group of ladies came along and were introduced to yoga.

As part of a national mental health week a group of six yoga teachers and I provided free yoga classes in Inverurie Townhall between 10 and 4pm. So great to meet so many people who came from across Aberdeenshire.

Yoga Nidra with the Yoga Nidra Network and am currently offering Yoga Nidra sessions as part of my general yoga classes. Yoga Nidra (meaning sleep) is a way to engage our conscious mind in letting go through relaxation, releasing stress, tension, pain and may help in reducing insomnia.
I completed Sound sessions with Anne Malone through Yoga Campus in London
and have learnt how to incorporate sound into yoga and how to deliver sound bath sessions for either one to one or in group sessions. The benefits of sound is very healing, so perfect for those who don't want movement but to be able to release tension through listening and feeling the natural vibrations of sound.
I completed Menopause Yoga training with Yoga Campus and can now offer women circles to support women through and post menopause.
