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!

  • What does yoga have to do with the moon?

    We may all have dog days from time to time. But what about Moon Days? Some dedicated yoga practitioners, in styles such as Ashtanga, have a day off on full and new moon days each month.  They believe the moon has such a strong effect on our energies, it is...


  • An earth salutation for the Equinox

    Sunday this week marks the second point of the year when the night and day become equal in length, and we slip into the darker days of autumn at the September equinox. We did a grounding and balancing sequence this week, drawing on the symbolism of Tadasana or Mountain Pose,...


  • How can yoga help with back pain?

    A quick straw poll in this week’s classes showed that around two thirds of  you suffer from back pain at some time. Me too. I’ve been seeing the same chiropractor since 2001, and today she put me right yet again – it’s my tight ligaments that are often to blame....
