We help everyday heroes find their brave.
Our community is full of brave birds doing amazing things in public and private, through the good times and the tougher times. Below you'll find our Bravery story and why we are selling pants. It's the Brave Bird Club mission to now support you with yours.
One day a ping on my phone came through. It said
"I know I need to leave him".
I could feel the change in energy. I wrote back
"What would you say to yourself if you were your best friend"
"To put my brave girl pants on and get on with it"
I replied. "Ok, so do that".
Then she did,
Brave Bird Pants stand for bravery, hope and community. Perhaps you need them for 'that' family occasion you are dreading, to wear to an important pitch, to the gym as you train, to support you as you struggle with sadness, illness, grief or overwhelm, to remind yourself everything that you are, and all that you have conquered to be here today.
Or perhaps they are for a friend, to remind them of who they are underneath, of their heart so big it could burst, of their compassion so strong it can heal, of their intelligence and fearlessness, of their strength when life seems against them, and of their downright awesomeness that the world needs more of...
Meet Brave Bird Club Founder, Sarah Oakley
.... Like all of us I have been through challenges in my life. A few years ago I was totally exhausted by my role as a mother and full time carer to my husband and son.
I had goals I had to drop and we had aspirations as a family that were shattered
as we navigated life with 2 very sick family members.
But as they say, 'the sun always shines after the storm'. My life experiences have forced me to be vulnerable and open. With the support of others, I have discovered the best parts of myself that could have easily remained hidden. I have found my 'brave' to share with you".
What we can do for you
Brave Bird Club is a brand new positive community led by Sarah Oakley .
It's a very supportive space, full to the brim with inspiring people.
It's a welcome, non judgemental, and fun place to hang out.
So come as you are! We're excited to meet you.

She is great fun to be with and lights up a room with her beautiful smile that now comes from a place of true joy, peace and happiness"
Julie New, Author, Speaker, Personal Recovery Coach
"I first met Sarah almost twenty years ago when she was teaching yoga. A wonderful teacher, she brought out an inner strength in me which was the catalyst for changing my career and fulfilling lots of ambitions and dreams I didn’t know I had. After we both had children we launched two businesses together and had a lot of fun along the way. Sarah was always the perfect business partner: patient, calm and cool in the face of adversity. When working with clients she has this knack of instantly getting to the heart of what makes someone tick.
This makes her an intuitive and insightful teacher, coach and mentor. Professionally and personally we’ve been through a lot together and her love and support has never wavered despite facing some serious challenges. She’s one of the wisest people I know and she is full of kindness and light. I’m so glad I met her and had the chance to work with her."
Elinor Evans, Ex Business Partner
"Sarah’s example has been of learning and change, adapting and accepting. Often there is no choice but to do a lot of the hard work on ourselves alone. I found with Sarah, that I didn’t have to. There was a place for me to feel vulnerable and to sit with that vulnerability. There comes a point where the strongest of those around you, bring you courage enough to fall and fall hard, knowing that you’ll feel it deeply, but RISE all the same."
Nina Hearne, Brave Bird Club Ambassador
