Yoga Therapy at Mother Nature Sanctuary

YWD (yoga with deborah) Yoga Therapy at Mother Nature Sanctuary

After Easter I will be able to offer 1-1 Yoga Therapy sessions at MNS

I will have some availability for appointments on Thursday, Friday and occasionally Saturday mornings.

“Yoga therapy is the professional application of the principles and 
practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within a therapeutic 
relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle 
management and yoga practices for individuals or small groups.” IAYT 
(International Association of Yoga Therapists definition)

Yoga Therapy may be used to: reduce symptoms of illness or injury, establish 
more functional breath and movement patterns, reduce physical and mental 
suffering, improve quality of life and enhance positive coping strategies.

What to expect in a Yoga Therapy Session:
In Yoga therapy we start by gathering information to establish your need for 
Yoga Therapy and goals for practice. This is done with an intake/health form 
filled in prior to the first session, then in the first session an 
interview, posture, movement and breath assessments. From the assessments 
and interview a practice is created for you which will be taught to you 
in session, also providing you with a drawn practice sheet to follow at home. 
In following sessions we would assess how the practice is working for you 
adjusting /changing elements to further move you toward you goals.

If you are interested please contact Deborah on 07772967746 or email for more information. 

I am happy to explain more about Yoga Therapy and how I may be able to help.

I am a fully trained Yoga Therapist registered with the CNHC (complimentary & natural healthcare council).

I have just added dates to the classes to take us up until the end of May (and half term).

23rd February - 30th March
19th April - 25th May

Thursday Evening Yoga 7pm - 8.30pm

Friday Afternoon Yoga 1.30pm - 2.45pm

These are all online only classes at the moment, but I am hoping that from the 17th May I can resume in room sessions which may get us back into class for the last two weeks of these dates. The classes will continue on zoom as well if this happens.

After the May half term from June 7th I hope to be able to offer a block of in room and zoom blended classes to take us up to the August brake.

I will email people about the in room classes closer to the time and after I have had confirmation to resume from my venues.

YWD Class Update

Hi all,

As you will be aware I don’t know yet when in room classes may be able to start so all classes for the time being will be Zoom only.

I will mail out as soon as I know anything but I am assuming it may be after Easter, I understand that some people will still prefer to practice online for quite some time so I will be continuing with the zoom and room format after things start to open up.

All classes are on as usual next week then Zoom classes will take a break for half term so there will be no classes on Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th February but I will be doing a special Friday class on the 19th February which will include a seasonal Yoga Nidra to celebrate the very beginnings of spring time.

YWD Winter Unpdate


Hi Yogis,

First I would like to wish everyone a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Thank you all so much for attending classes with me over 2020 online and in the room when we could.

 No photo description available.

For those who may have been missing my usual end of team Yoga Nidra classes with chocolate and ginger here is something for you to explore, lots of free yoga Nidra on the yoga Nidra Network site.

You will have to supply your own chocolate and ginger, sorry 😊. Yoga Nidra is highly recommended if the year has left you feeling a bit frazzled, or you are welcome to try my summertime special class for
Soothing the nervous system class recording here -

Class dates for January are herein the box to the right, you can find full information on  in room classes , covid-19 guidelines and the links to register for all the zoom class in the tabs above.

In Room Classes
In room places continue to be fully booked due to the restrictions on numbers as we try to maintain a safe 2 meters between mats, if you have not practiced in the room with me this autumn and would like to please email me to check availability or go on my wait lists for the classes, the Friday Afternoon class often has some spaces as the room is larger. ALL ROOM CLASSES MUST BE PRE-BOOKED due to the covid-19 restrictions. I can continue to take in room classes in tier 2 but classes would be put on hold again if there is a move to tier 3, 4 or another Lockdown.
Any money taken for cancelled classes not used for zoom classes will be credited for future classes, everyone has been doing something different over the last few month so if you need to know where you are up please email me.

Yoga Therapy
In the new year I will be offering 1-2-1 Yoga Therapy appointment on Thursday, Friday and possibly Saturday mornings as well as the first of my small group Yoga Therapy courses which will be for back pain/ache.
You can find out more on my  Yoga Therapy and Small Group Yoga Therapy courses here or the tab above.

Please email to register your interest in the courses.

Stay safe and rest well.
