I teach both online using Zoom, and in the studio with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. If y0u have specific health issues, or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I can offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions, either in person or via Zoom.
The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 24 December 2020
ALL CLASSES NOW ONLINE on Zoom DUE TO CURRENT LOCK DOWN
Beginners If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a Zoom class just get in touch. I will then arrange a chat on the phone and/or a one to one tutorial to get you started. I personally find Zoom a good alternative to studio classes. Read more about yoga here.

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,...
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....
As thunderstorms break out this weekend, it is hard to think of some of the lovely sessions we’ve been having outdoors just days ago. Pictured below is the final posture in this week’s class, half moon pose, beautifully demonstrated by my Wednesday class at St Ethelwolds. It is a demanding...
