Real Time Classes with an experienced teacher. The classes are warm and friendly. I aim to bring you to a place of stillness, calm & build strength. 

The classes are not recorded, they are one offs just like in a studio, we sometimes stop and workshop something if needed,  I teach intuitively to the energy and needs of you.

I focus on fun, strength and flexibility, using a staged approach for different levels so you will be able to develop in your own pace in class

19:00-20:00   Yin taught by Karen - A floor based practice, using props if needed. In Yin Yoga, we work on the deep connective tissue in the body and the joints, to keep them mobile and as healthy as possible. Each posture will be held between 1-8 minutes. A time to go inside and really connect with yourself. A very powerful form of self healing, this system works alongside the Chinese Meridians which are worked on in Acupuncture. In Yin, we place ourselves in shapes to stimulate these meridians which balance our emotions and also improve the function of our internal organs. BOOK YOUR SPACE

SUNDAY

7th June 2020 - 20.00-21.30

Serene Sunday Sessions (Pyjamas Optional) taught by Karen -This class is 90 minutes of bliss and costs £10, come along to the serene Sunday sessions to let go, to stop, to find a pause.

With the intensity of modern life, we can easily become disconnected. Restorative yoga is a delicious way for us to reconnect. The class combines philosophy and science. Using props to support the body in positions of comfort and ease, we explore the power of stillness and silence. The class opens with some slow gentle movements to bring some fluidity into the body, progressing to a series of restorative poses and breathing and meditation practices. The practise closes with an extended savasana (relaxation) to enable you to let go completely. By dedicating time to rest deeply, you will gain more energy, reconnection and creativity. My aim is to bring you back to you. BOOK YOUR SPACE

Breathe in...Breathe out
 
Let it go....
 
One of the things that I have taken away from one of Karen's classes today, amongst other things such as her words of wisdom , from both books,  and also her own experience . Karen's classes are more than just a "yoga class ", if you want to know why, then book a class, take part, have a go and see how you feel. Thank you Karen, I am so glad I had the courage a year ago to book a Yoga class with you.

I met Karen after a friend mentioned following her on Instagram. I found her yoga class easy to follow, some lovely elements of fun and very spiritual. I’ve also signed up for an essential oils training session, and as part of this Karen has spent time and given consideration to my individual needs. She has been very caring, compassionate and  respectful and I’m really grateful to her for this. I also find her posts interesting, informative and encouraging, and they help remind me of my core values. Thank you and I look forward to attending many more sessions.

At a time when not a lot is the same, Bamboo virtual yoga classes have kept one thing constant in my life - yoga. It's also brought my yoga practice home. Until recently it was something I did, and enjoyed, outside the home. I'm now practising yoga and relaxation in a new environment but feeling even more part of a community. The virtual hatha and yin classes I sign up for are now my opportunity not only to relax, find peace of mind and enjoy yoga and its many benefits, but its also my time to connect, feel reassured and supported. Thank you Karen xx"

Welcome to Bamboo Yoga Oils Life. I'm Karen the founder, I have been practising yoga for well over 25 years, I qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga BWYQ Level 4 500 hours yoga teacher training and have so many more teachings under my belt (i'm a bit addicted to earning) . I love teaching yoga as I know how much it helps me and is such a big part of my lifestyle. It is a transformative, healing, and empowering experience. I have also had breast cancer twice and several surgeries, so I really understand the impact that life can have on the body and emotions and the healing power of yoga. As I am always learning and healing myself, I cannot stop teaching! I am also a life coach, essential oil educator and holistic therapist, teaching and sharing the tools that keep me going, have you the saying ...I bend so I don't break...it's yoga that keeps me bendy in body and mind.

Would you like a complimentary short breath practise to help you recenter & find stillness?
