thoroughly recommend Maggie. She is an extremely competent, patient
teacher and has helped me enormously with back and hip problems
related to my osteoporosis. As a result I have not just increased my
flexibility and general physical well-being but reduced the level of
discomfort and pain in my lower back due to her carefully tailored
and clearly explained postures.
After a session with Maggie I
always feel more relaxed, balanced and positive in both body and
mind. Thank you Maggie for your invaluable assistance and
I have MS and Maggie
has adapted exercises for me to do within the class. I have done
yoga for many years and am still stretching and it is helping me
maintain my posture. I enjoy my weekly class and the banter.
A session of
Oasis Yoga provides an immediate relief from my general daily tension,
both physically & mentally. The more I learn, the more I want.
I would say that this is a great class - I have tried various different
teachers, but really enjoy this class. It is friendly and not intimidating,
I like the physical element to the class and the progression of
moves balanced with the relaxation.
The teaching is thorough and I feel the class sizes enable each
member to be monitored and helped to achieve the correct positions
- this is done with humour and sensitivity. I really valued being
able to work on my back particularly one week when I had asked about
what specific moves might help with a problem I was having.
I always notice when I miss a session and always feel so much better
in terms of flexibility and mental calm after attending.
I love it!!
I have been doing Yoga now for 5 years and it is one of the very
few activities I have been able to persevere at rather than deciding
I am too lazy to go, or stopped enjoying it or can't be bothered
as so often happens when exercise is involved.
It is certainly something anybody can do and as a result I am much
more flexible, my posture has improved and I no longer suffer from
lower back pain.
Maggie's yoga class is very relaxing and steady and everybody is
very nice and welcoming. We all encourage each other and we all
have various degrees of flexibility.
I started yoga 5 years ago to keep my partner, Julie, company. I
immediately found it to be beneficial to my general well being.
More importantly, the improvement in my suppleness made a difference
to my golf swing and added about 30 yards to my drive. I now use
yoga exercises as a warm-up before playing golf.
Yoga is great to keep you feeling and looking youthful- stretches
and tightens! The class is just right for me - not a beginner level
but not too tough!
I booked Maggie for 6 private yoga classes to develop a personal
programme suited to me and to help relieve my own quirky aches and
I'd recommend Maggie's Yoga classes to everyone because stretching
your muscles is good for you, especially if you're a runner or mountain
biker as these sports tend to shorten your calf muscles/hamstrings.
If like me you have a busy life which makes fitting in another class
difficult then I'd recommend a personal programme. I really appreciate
having a routine of stretches tailored to healing myself. Having
seen the benefits my husband is now embarking on a similar programme,
and whilst fitting the sessions isn't easy, Maggie doesn't seem
to mind and we simply diary in a date when we can.
