Yoga classes

I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style. In addition, I run two ultra gentle classes aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.

On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week. 

On Tuesdays, I offer a class in the city centre to Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.
Plus an ultra gentle class  in Summertown at 4.15pm 'yoga for all'. 

On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: an ultra gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm.  Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight.

See classes page for more.

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.

Cost Drop in  £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email [email protected] or call 0771 520 7784

Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

  • A mobilisation series for the joints

    We have over 200 joints in the body, and good health depends on keeping them moving. Most – for example, the knees, fingers and hips - are synovial. The joints are covered in smooth tissue, cartilage and synovium, with a fluid in-between so the bones do not rub together.  But...


  • A salutation for the full moon

    Most of us have done or heard of the sun salutations, ideally practised in the morning, to awaken the body and create energy and heat. The modern interpretation of Surya Namaskar is as a dynamic sequence of poses which on a physical level builds stamina and strength and connects strong...


  • Finding new ways of sitting

    We explored various ways of sitting on the floor this week. Sitting cross-legged is an important part of yoga practice and is commonly used for breathing and sitting postures. But it requires considerable flexibility in the back thighs, back of the pelvis, and inner thighs, as well as external rotation...


  • Use yoga to bring peace of mind into your life

    I can’t be the only one switching off from the news these days. I think it’s also a time of year when we also tend to look inward and worry more, despite all the bright urgency of those new year resolutions. It takes consistent effort to keep worry at bay,...


  • Now is the time you need to practise!

    Now - just when you might feel busier than ever - is the time you need to find time for a yoga session. As well as stressed, it’s easy to get over-tired, and then become more vulnerable to bugs and colds as our immune systems take a dip. Class numbers...
