My philosophy is you don't need to be bendy to do yoga! In fact, quite the opposite, it's the stiff and creaky among us who stand to benefit the most. I strongly believe that yoga should be 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. It's never too late to start  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  £10, but I usually offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance.

  • Why we need strong muscles

    Most of us come to  yoga to stretch and become more flexible -  not realising it’s just as important to tone up and strengthen our muscles as well. We need strong and healthy muscles to move; to lift and carry things, or do exercise. It’s just the same when we’re...


  • Finding balance with yogaroma

    Like yoga, aromatherapy is a traditional form of healing, and like yoga it is holistic – it aims to work on the whole - mind, body and spirit. Aromatherapy essential oils are the natural, fragrant liquids found in nature. These oils, also referred to as “essences,” are botanical extracts of...


  • Why do yoga? No easy answers!

    The start of a new term of yoga is a good time to return to the core basics that underlie everything we do in class: Why practise yoga? And even ‘What is yoga?’ Whether you are a beginner, or have been doing yoga for years, there is no easy answer,...
