My Yoga Seed

A Little of Me .....
I am Sharon Kelly.
I first discovered and fell in love with the beautiful ancient gift of Yoga in 2006 whilst spending time in Mother India. I continued to practice for many years upon my return to the UK , seeking out and exploring differing lineages, traditions and teachings and eventually undertaking my Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Campus in Manchester.
I have since completed further studies in Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Meditation TT with Michael Stone and Ayurveda & Yoga for Menopause. I recently undertook the Vipassana system of 10 day silent meditations at Dharma Dippa, Hereford and look forward to returning in the near future.
I have long had a keen interest in Aromatherapy and working with Sacred Oils which I love to weave into my offerings tailoring my blends to complement the intrinsic message or intention that I wish to convey.
Currently I am undertaking Reiki training.
My Current Offerings:
Drop in Classes in both Oldham (Mondays) & Manchester Yoga Central (Wednesdays)
Fundamentals of Yoga Courses in Oldham ( starting September 2023/ Mondays)
One to One / Small Group Classes Yoga Classes in both Oldham & Manchester Yoga Central.
Specialist Workshops including Restorative.
Workshop Collaborations including GongHealing, Reiki Healing and Breathwork.
Wellbeing in the Workplace and Collaborations with Wellbeing Conferences.
I also offer Indian Head Massage Treatments at my home studio in Oldham.
Going into 2024:
Classes will resume week beginning the 8th of January
It has been such an amazing experience breathing life back into my home studio here in Oldham. My Monday night classes have morphed into heartfelt individual communities and I so look forward to that continuing into the new year with both the Fundamentals of Yoga Course 6pm as well as the Slow Flow into Meditation 7.30pm
Interest depending, I am planning on adding a further night to my offerings in Oldham and looking to establish a Thursday Night class at 6.15pm which will be a Hatha Class more suitable for people with some yoga experience. Please get in touch if this calls to you.
My regular Wednesday night 6pm class at Manchester Yoga Central will continue and this is bookable via the MYC website.

"Do not kill the instinct of the body for the glory of the pose. Do not look at your body like a stranger but adopt a friendly approach towards it. Watch it, listen to it, observe it's needs, it's requests and even have fun with it. To be sensitive is to be alive "
