Yoga with Sharon (Natya Rupa)

Yoga Sabbatical

At the end of this current term of classes (27th June 2019) I am planning to take a sabbatical from teaching my weekly classes for a year.  I will then re-start classes in September 2020. Having taught these classes now for over 10 years, it feels like the right time for me to take some time out.


What I Will be Doing

During this time, I will be taking the opportunity to get back to the roots of my own yoga practice, to reflect & review & find my way towards establishing practices that can support me at this stage of my life as well as in the growth & development of my new Creative ventures.  I know, that I am also  going to spending a great deal of time in my Creative Space Studio both enjoying my own Creative Practice & bringing you new Creativity Workshops.  I will also be taking the opportunity to do some more travelling and will be spending some time at Mandala Yoga Ashram who continue to support me in my own practice and on my own Journey.


Continuing Yoga Practice

Although I am taking a break from weekly classes, I will still be working & available for individual one- to-one and small group sessions.  I will also be offering the opportunity for my current students to meet with me to plan the continuation of their own personal home practice during my break.  Please do contact me to discuss arranging either one-to-one or small group sessions which I can host in my own studio.


Develop & Plan your own Yoga Home Practice

If you would like to develop your own home yoga practice but your not sure where to start, maybe you feel overwhelmed by the innumerable options available to you, what, where, when, how, I am offering the opportunity to meet for a one-to-one session in order to specifically identify how your home yoga practice might best continue to support you over the coming months.

During this 2 hour session, we will explore together, the asana, pranayama, meditation & relaxation practices that serve & support you in your life & on your own personal Yoga journey.  You will leave with a clear written plan designed by yourself with my guidance & support.  You will also receive a recording of a relaxation practice for you to enjoy at home.  Investment £ 55.00

These sessions are only currently available in June 2019 please contact me to discuss



Starting in September 2020

‘Beginners’ Hatha Yoga Class (time to be confirmed)

A New Beginners Yoga class will be starting subject to demand so please do let me know if you’d be interested in attending !

This class will be suitable for beginners, those with a little yoga experience or those who might have been away from practice for a while and are looking for a class to re-acquaint themselves with Yoga.

Hatha Yoga Class (experienced)  7.30 – 9pm

This class has been running now for approximately 8 years.  Some of my students in this class have been practicing Yoga for many years.

In this class we are able to explore some of the more esoteric aspects of yoga such as working with the Chakras, Bandhas, Meditation & Pranayama practices.

The class is very welcoming and inclusive to new members, so if you have some Yoga experience and are looking for a new class this one might suit you better than the earlier class.


Current Term dates

2nd, 9th & 16th May and 6th, 13th 20th & 27th June

(7 weeks = £49.00)


‘Stress-less Sundays’




This class will be a fusion of Restorative & Yin style yoga.  Together with the practices of Pranayama (breathing techniques), Meditation and Yoga Nidra,  this two & half  hour class will offer an opportunity to truly explore, indulge and experience the benefits of a deeply healing and restorative practice.

Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) is a systematic method of inducing complete mental, emotional and physical relaxation.

As a monthly class, there is no need to sign up for regular attendance, simply come along when you can.

As we will be using ‘props’ and supports to help us access ease and comfort in both the asana work and in the relaxation, it will greatly help your practice if you can bring 2 blankets, 2  yoga blocks and at least one cushion, a bolster if you have one. (quite frankly the more you can bring the better!)  If you don’t have easy access to any of these props, I will have a small supply of spares with me on the day.

I am looking forward to welcoming you and guiding you through a deeply restful & restorative practice. You are most welcome to come along to this class whether you are a regular student of mine or not.  Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any doubts about the suitability of this class for you .You must be over 18.

Time:  2pm until 4.30pm (2 & half hours)
Location:  Creative Space Studio Matlock DE4 2JG (contact me for directions)
Cost:  I will be accepting DONATIONS for this class
