Elaine Fletcher Yoga
Having practiced yoga since the early 1980′s, I have now been teaching for more than twenty years. Yoga has been an invaluable tool for me- maintaining a sense of wellbeing, physically, mentally and emotionally.
In 1994 I qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga – the largest yoga organization in the U.K. and have since gone on to do further training . My approach to asana has been influenced by working with well respected teachers , Peter Blackaby and John Stirk who draw on their knowledge from osteopathy, to encourage practice that focuses on the natural alignment of the body. Utilizing the role of the breath to create movement and release tension is also key in refining awareness and promoting a sense of well- being.

‘Stephen Baird has an unusual combination of excellent technical skills and personal attributes along with a highly developed aesthetic eye. He is technically accomplished, inventive, responsive and responsible, and a delight to work with.’
Sophy Hoare Yoga
I went to my first yoga class in 1970 at the former Dance Centre in Floral Street, Covent Garden. The teacher was Penny Nield-Smith, a student of B.K.S. Iyengar. Penny mainly taught large classes for the London adult education authority and never taught ‘advanced’ postures, but she taught a great deal about attention and awareness.

I had a strong desire to free my body of its limitations but I never discovered a way which satisfied me. It was as though I was searching for an elusive or non-existent key.
Stephen Baird: Photographer
This site is an area to collect the developing projects of the photographer, Stephen Baird.
His projects often address the singular loneliness that he sees as part of modern life and a growing part of the cultural landscape. What he tries to show in his photography is the, sometimes, jarring effects of this. Abandoned toys, monotonous change, scribbled protests and confined life.
This is an ever developing site, with expanding projects and new projects happening regularly.
Women in Black: Scotland
Women in Black is a network of women world-wide committed to peace with justice and opposed to war and other forms of violence. We wear black to mourn all victims of war, the destruction of people and of nature. We aim to educate, inform and influence public opinion, to make war an unthinkable option.
Women in Black began with weekly vigils by 15 Israeli women in 1988. They were soon joined by Palestinian women, and soon there were 40 Women in Black groups around Israel and the West Bank. The movement broadened to other conflicts and countries, with women gathering to stand in silence in Belgrade in protest at the Serbian regime, and in London against the Gulf War. In 2001, Women in Black was awarded the UNIFEM Millennium Peace Prize for Women and nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
