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).

YWD Class Update 19th March

 Hi All,

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

Tuesday Evening Yoga 7.30pm - 9pm
23rd February - 30th March
19th April - 25th May

Thursday Evening Yoga 7pm - 8.30pm
25th February - 1st April
22nd April - 27th May

Friday Afternoon Yoga 1.30pm - 2.45pm
26th February - 2nd April
16th April - 28th May

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.

Warm Regards

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.
