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.

NEW! WED CLASS STARTS in ABINGDON on SEPTEMBER 13TH 7.30-9pm 

See the classes page for more details. Please give me a call on mobile 0771 520 7784, or email yoga@lucytennyson.com if you would like to know 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.

  • Take a deep breath

    We breathe every moment, every day of our lives, but often pay little attention until we step into a yoga class. Breathing exercises (pranayama) are regarded as important as physical postures (asana) and are an important stage towards meditation. In daily life, without being aware of it, it is easy...


  • So, what about doing 'hot' yoga then?

    My class numbers almost dropped by half over the week’s heatwave. So much for ‘hot yoga’ then! But well done those that came and I hope no ill effects – do let me know. It prompted many of you to ask about ‘hot yoga’ … basically what is it and...
