Laughter is the best medicine!
Kindness club teach laughter to everyone- regardless of age! Children, families, office workers in big corporations have all benefited from laughter yoga. We turn our giggles in to deep and hearty laughter- the kind of laughter that hurts your belly! When we laugh for a longer period of time endorphins are released lowering stress, strengthening our immune systems and helping us to create a more positive mindset. We simply feel better when we laugh!
I have developed a laughter yoga session designed specifically at families with children. The sessions are usually on zoom and are very affordable- it’s a wonderful way to connect with family and friends x It’s amazing how this session can lift the spirits 💛 The laughter stays with you all day! Choose a time and a day to suit you and send the code out to your nearest and dearest 💛 I promise you belly laughs and big feelings of calm 💛
Our next session is on Zoom - get in touch for further details.

I started my yoga teaching journey a bit topsy turvey by qualifying as a yoga teacher then immediately concentrating on children- consequently for 10 years I had built up a gorgeous little business teaching children and just the odd adult class- then Covid hit and childrens yoga took a bit of a break! I felt like an imposter at first offering my adult zoom classes!!! but I have really poured myself into these classes and all the face to face classes I’ve taught since- I’m so happy with the teacher that I am becoming. My classes are heart led and heart full spaces. We have fun, not too serious, smiles and calm feelings are honestly guaranteed ❤️Anyone can practice with me regardless of age or ability- please come along.

Chair yoga has a reputation for being for disabled people with limited movement- and whilst chair yoga is very beneficial in that situation it can also be used in a much more able bodied situation. If you have a sitting down looking at a computer based job chair yoga is for you! If you have a job where you don’t move around a lot- chair yoga is for you. If you feel like regular on the mat classes are a bit too much of a challenge- chair yoga is for you!These classes will arm you with the knowledge of how you can move your body to feel less stiff whilst you carry on your daily activities. You will learn how to move your body whilst you are actually at work to help combat stiffness and keep your joints LUBRICATED! 😁Please book here.

Menopause and Me
We don’t have to go through menopause alone. This class is an enjoyable way to share our menopause experiences as we laugh, listen, move and learn. The classes will help you to rest and restore, to release tension and rage, to reenergise and to increase strength and bone density. These classes aim to boost your physical, mental and heart health. They will help to keep you flexible, supple and mobile but most of all these classes aim to help you to feel good about yourself. Whether you are peri, post or smack bang in the middle of menopause come along to empower yourself. Please bring along a yoga mat, socks, water and a snuggly blanket! Please book through this link x
