Yoga classes

I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. I teach both in the studio (from mid June) and online using Zoom. I am now teaching Monday - Wednesday up to the end July. 

I returned to the studio in mid-June at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon,  with a new afternoon class at 2pm, focussing on movement and flexibility which welcomes beginners. The popular Wednesday evening classes start at 5.15pm and 7pm.  Numbers are currently restricted to six. I teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm (all levels), and Tuesdays 5-6pm (beginners/gentle/stretch).

I teach outdoors when the weather allows.

  • 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....


  • Yoga in a heatwave!

    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...
