I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. On Mondays, I offer classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm.

On Tuesdays, I offer a class to Oxford University staff at 6pm.

On Wednesdays, I offer two classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm.

NEW CLASS I am now taking names for a new ultra gentle class for those looking to stretch and keep as mobile as they can with no pressure to sit on the floor, or bend into shape.

See the classes page for more details. Please email [email protected] if you would like to know more, or call 0771 520 7784

 Timetable of classes

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.

  • How to keep your sacrum happy

        The sacrum is located at the base of your spine and consists of five vertebrae that are fused together to form a bone about the size of a hand. It fits snuggly between the two sides of your pelvis and is connected to them via the sacroiliac joints....
