Yoga for the Totally Un-Bendy

  • Antenna Studios

Let's all feel happier and healthier; off the yoga mat and on it.

This course is designed for folks who are either setting (an unflexible) foot on a yoga mat for the first time, or keen to get back to basics.  With added flexibility (HA!). Pay for 8 classes but have 10 weeks to use them in - so if life gets in the way and you have to miss a session, you don't waste your cash. Handy, right?!

When we’re together in class we’ll learn poses and practices so that your body and mind start to feel healthier. Then while we’re apart you’ll have access to an online community (via Facebook) to continue your learning, share your experiences, and get support from your fellow un-bendy yoga pals. 

Real Life Yoga is all about finding the ways and means to help you bring a little (or a lot) of yoga into your real life, so that’s why this course is different to all the others. We won’t preach – but together we’ll practice. (And possibly go to the pub.)

Here are the details and if you want to know more, don’t hesitate to give me a ring on 07747 481866 or email meg@megjackson.co.uk

Where? Antenna Studios, Bowyers Yard, Haynes Lane, SE19 3AN

When? Our first session will be on Saturday 25th March, then on every consecutive Saturday (apart from Saturday 15th March) until our last session on Saturday 3rd June. 

Time? 10.00am to 11.00am

What’s included?

o   10 hour long lessons.

o   Your own virtual Real Life Yoga community, including regular posts from Meg suggesting articles to read or videos to watch, through a private Facebook group.

What’s the investment? £104 for 8 lessons. (Must be used over the 10 week period.)

Still not sure? Fair enough. But I’m just gonna leave this here….

"Yoga with Meg has been fun and more.  It’s shown me how by controlling my breathing, I can calm not only my mind and body but my whole frenetic life pace – and not only whilst we’re in class.  I recently injured my back on a walking holiday and, determined not to keep swallowing pain killers, set about practising what Meg has taught me so patiently over the weeks.  My husband, a complete sceptic, was so amazed that within just a day or so, I was able to move freely without the need for the 5 sessions of physiotherapy that he undertook last year for a similar problem.  Not only did my yoga ‘reinstate’ my holiday, but it has converted my husband too!

Thank you, Meg." Dr T Passenger

Don’t forget – you can contact Meg with any questions or queries you might have. Just drop her an email. 

Yeah there’s a bit of small print. But I like to keep things fair and transparent so here goes….Refunds will not be made for any lessons you are unable to attend. Lessons are not transferable. If you’ve got any questions about this stuff please just ask!

New Thursday Night Class

New Thursday Night Class

  • London SE19 3AH

Come & thrive on a Thursday!

Starting Thursday 26th November, Crystal Palace, London. 

Brilliant for beginners and excellent for improvers - join us to feel happier and healthier with these classes for REAL people like you. 

Let’s face it, even with the best intentions, sometimes life gets in the way. You know that committing to a course of yoga classes would be good for your body, and your mind, but the rest of your life doesn’t seem to know that. Cue unexpected late meetings at work, a dose of the lurghie, and the Overground having a funny five minutes. Before you know it you’ve missed more classes than you originally paid for.

That’s why I’m starting a new course with a little added flexibility…in more ways than one.

It’s simple – you pay £104 for 8 classes (that’s just £13 each) and you’ve got 10 weeks in which to use them. The first session will be on Thursday 20th April, and the last one will be on Thursday 22nd June). It means you get the benefit of a consistent practice (little and often is the key, my friends) but won’t lose out if life throws the occasional curve-ball your way.

I’m keeping the class size small to make sure everyone gets plenty of attention and we keep the group cosy, so I’m not just saying ‘book soon’ as a cunning marketing ploy. You really do need to book soon because I've only got space for a few more mats in the room.

So - the details are below. For more information don’t hesitate to give me a ring on 07747 481688 or email meg@megjackson.co.uk

Where? Crystal Palace Osteopaths, 10 Westow Street, London, SE19 3AH

When? Our first session will be on Thursday 20th April and the last session will be on Thursday 22nd June (No class on Thursday 9th February.)

Time? 7.45pm – 8.45pm

Investment? Eight hour-long lessons for just £104.

Yeah there’s a bit of small print. But I like to keep things fair and transparent so here goes….Refunds will not be made for any lessons you are unable to attend. All lessons booked must be cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the lesson starting. If you cancel later than 24 hours, you will lose your credit and forfeit one of your lessons. Lessons are not transferable. If you’ve got any questions about this stuff please just ask!

New Monday Night Class

  • London SE19 1RX

Come & move on a Monday!

Starting Monday 30th January, Crystal Palace, London. 

Just like the Thursday night class, this one is perfect for beginners and improvers alike, plus you get a little extra flexibility (HA!) so you don't waste money on paying for classes which you have to miss when life gets in the way. 

So - you pay £104 for 8 classes (that’s just £13 each) and you’ve got 10 weeks in which to use them. The first session will be on Monday 24th April and the last one will be on Monday 26th June. It means you get the benefit of a consistent practice (little and often is the key, my friends) but won’t lose out if life throws the occasional curve-ball your way.

I’m keeping the class size small to make sure everyone gets plenty of attention and we keep the group cosy, so I’m not just saying ‘book soon’ as a cunning marketing ploy. It's a lovely room, but there isn't oodles of space and trust me you don't want to get *that* close to a stranger in a Downward Facing Dog.

So - the details are below. For more information don’t hesitate to give me a ring on 07747 481688 or email meg@megjackson.co.uk

Where? The Sparrowhawk Pub, 2 Westow Hill, London SE19 1RX

When? Our first session will be on Monday 24th April and the last session will be on Monday 26th June.

Time? 7.00pm – 8.00pm

Investment? Eight hour-long lessons for just £104.

Workshop: Love to be Loved!

  • Crystal Palace Osteopaths

Come and spend a soothing Saturday afternoon learning how yoga can create that most wonderful feeling of all. Yep - we’re getting loved up!

Opening your heart can be a scary thing but with gentleness, compassion, warmth and courage it is possible (and can even be fun!). After taking a short wander through our amazing anatomy we’ll dive into a dynamic practice; using poses to open and strengthen shoulders, core, legs, and back. This will lead us to the ultimate expression of a truly open heart; back bending.

Are you a hater not a lover (of back bending!)? This workshop will coax even the most hardened of you into feeling the “Oooh” rather than the “Aarrgh!”

Then, what better way to soak up the love than with a pause for some tea and treats? After all, self-love has to include the taste buds too.

Our second session will develop some practical tools to take the love with us when we step off the mat and into the real world, as we make our own mantras. Mantra literally means ‘mind protecting’ so it’s a conscious thought we give the mind to help it focus. Want courage? Struggling to surrender? Need compassion? A mantra can help.

Finally, to finish the afternoon in the most loving way possible we’ll reward our minds and bodies with a deep and delicious final relaxation. (No spoilers, but chocolate may or may not be involved….!)

If you’ve got any questions or queries don’t hesitate to contact Meg on meg@megjackson.co.uk or on 07747 481688.
