Yoga classes

I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. On Mondays, I offer classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, and in Radley I teach a movement and yoga class for AgeUK at 10.15am.

On Tuesdays I offer a class to Oxford University staff at 6pm. On Wednesdays, I teach two classes in Abingdon, at 3.45pm and 5.45pm. On other days, I offer one-to-one sessions and run a chair yoga class at a nursing home near where I live in Oxford.

See the classes page for more details. Please give me a call, or use the contact page on this site, to find out more. Timetable of classes

It's never too late to start. I strongly believe that yoga is for everyone, of all ages and all levels of fitness. I teach in a gentle hatha style that is ideal for beginners, sports people with tight muscles, and older students, as well as more experienced students seeking a deeper practice. Read more about yoga here.

You are welcome to join any of my classes on a drop-in basis, but it is always helpful to drop me an email beforehand. Drop in costs £9 or £10 depending on the venue, but I usually offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance.

  • Yoga Fundamentals week 6 - alignment

    Blog and class notes Thursday 2 March 2017  Alignment is one area where yoga teachers don’t always see eye to eye …. Literally! When coming up from a standing forward bend, some will tell their students to uncurl ‘vertebrae by vertebrae’ with a rounded back. Others will insist that you...


  • Yoga fundamentals week 3 - balance

  • Yoga fundamentals week 3 - flexibility

    Blog and class notes 9 February 2017Most of us are drawn to yoga because we want to become more flexible and maintain mobility.
