Yoga class news …

This term:

Morning! A reminder that we start our new yoga term tonight with two classes for six weeks. There is one space left in the 7.30 pm class. If you would like to join us, please let me know: contact

And some new classes:

There is a new monthly restorative yoga class for people who are living with fatigue. Fatigue has many starting points and its impact varies between individuals. If you would be interested in coming along, please follow this link: restorative-yoga-class-living-with-fatigue/

Over the summer I ended each yoga class with a guided meditation, similar to Yoga Nidra. The feedback was very positive. I am offering two similar classes this year. These are single classes, rather than a ‘term’ commitment: yoga-with-guided-meditation/

Friday Early Bird is resting until next Spring.

And the morning retreat:

In November, there is a morning retreat too: morning-retreats-at-yanley/

Restorative Yoga Class with a Fatigue Focus

First class – Wednesday, 23 October 2019

  • To include gentle yoga practice and meditation
  • Monthly class on Wednesday afternoon, 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm
  • £10 per class (concession rate available)
  • Location: The Loft, Yanley Court (stair access only)

This is a new yoga class that is suitable for people who are living with fatigue. This will mean different things to different people. Fatigue can have different beginning points:

  • sleepless nights due to being a carer – of someone who depends on you, for example young children, unwell partner
  • chronic stress and/or anxiety
  • hormonal imbalance including the menopause or thyroid issues
  • chronic insomnia
  • illness related – from the illness itself, from the treatment of the illness, recovering from the illness
  • chronic pain
  • ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Post traumatic stress disorder

Levels of fatigue vary greatly. Some people manage fatigue by recovering on every day off others have to live their whole life around managing their fatigue. I am commonly told by people with fatigue that the common response from friends and family is ‘oh yes, I’m tired too’. Tiredness tends to be cured by a bit of extra sleep. Fatigue does not. You do not need to have a diagnosis of fatigue to come along. In fact many people hate the label but some find it helpful. It is certainly a catch-all word. If you can relate to the words written here you are welcome to come to the class.

I feel a monthly class is sustainable. People with fatigue in an acute phase find a weekly commitment stressful and sometimes will just feel to unwell to attend. As well as practice there is an opportunity to stay for tea and an opportunity to have a chat. This is not a therapy space as such but can be viewed as therapeutic. An informal support group where ideas are discussed or we just share a cup of tea.
