As a result of talking to many people about their troubles and worries and indeed listening to myself over the last difficult year it has become evident to me that it would be helpful to do something together in our yoga community and to share yoga classes in DEDICATION, in honour, in remembrance of ourselves or any soul passed or present, with the intention of creating healing, peaceful vibrations when we work together in this way.
Having been involved in various charitable campaigns in past years Yoga You Sanctuary has raised in excess of £15,572 .
For 2021 I have been contemplating an avenue for charitable fundraising in a meaningful and accessible way, and because cancer support is something close to my heart due to my husband Dave’s health issues, and because cancer affects so many other people – ‘Maggie’s’ is my choice and Dave who sadly passed away on 23 January 2021 would have been so happy about this decision.
Any interested persons are invited to these sessions (anyone can participate -chair or mat work as the gentle physical part will be more for preparation for what follows )
It is intended to share 3 x precious practices involving simple rhythmical stretching ,gentle twisting , soothing pranayama, 108 x chants of healing Gayatri Mantra , and if you wish, you may pass to me the name of your beloved human or animal before the session and I will mention them in Loving , Kindness Meditation .
The sessions are not religious ceremony, just a simple way of doing something positive in a way that I know works for me, and can perhaps help you too, whilst simultaneously generating funds for Maggie’s.
What you need to do is make a donation with this link for each class separately please 😊 and then let me know.
Please only donate as you go, ie – only pay for the next available class and a Zoom link will be sent to you for your participation .
The classes all run on a Tuesday 7.30pm to 9pm
The first session on Tuesday May 11th raised £255
(I’m afraid the February 16th Dedication Yoga date originally planned was cancelled due to my husband Dave passing away on 23 Jan 2021- a separate fundraising tribute for Maggies in Daves honour is to be found at https://davidsimmonett.muchloved.com/
Our next Dedication Yoga Class is Tuesday Aug 10th and the final one takes place on Tuesday Nov 16th 2021.
In each class I invite you to place a photo next to your mat or chair , perhaps on a little table with a candle , crystal or incense . It is not meant for our group to dwell on any particular soul – just a coming together for sharing human, loving vibrations in a meaningful way , for recognition, for acknowledgement of how our lives our shaped in this connection with the intention of bringing peace, balance and acceptance.
Due to the nature of online teaching, it is impossible for the teacher to see everyone in the class all of the time, therefore Ann cannot accept any responsibility or be held responsible, for anything that you choose to do with your body in the comfort of your own home.
you are entering into a contract whereby you agree to take full responsibility for yourself during your participation in all online classes. Yoga is a method of self enquiry in which the responsibility lies firmly with the practitioner to ascertain what they should or should not be doing by paying close attention to how they feel.
You are strongly advised to listen to your body, to rest whenever your breathing feels laboured, or you feel tired, and to let Ann know if you have any medical issues either by email well before each class, or by using the chat facility in the online meeting space 10 minutes before the class starts.
Prompt entry to online waiting room before class is strongly advised so the class can begin on time. Ann cannot be held responsible for any failure on behalf of any internet providers.
(I’m sorry about the official nature of the above disclaimer, but it is an essential requirement of our insurance, and its also important because online teaching is different from face to face teaching. The yoga classes Ann teaches are relatively gentle, so as long as you pay attention to what is happening in your body during the class, the chances of anything going wrong are really tiny ! But please do ask if you have any queries).
