Yoga classes

I am now on holiday for August. I am teaching some outdoor classes on an ad hoc basis on Mondays and Tuesdays in Abingdon and Oxford.

My teaching term restarts on 14th September, and I hope to be able to offer you a choice of online classes using  Zoom, and indoor studio classes run according to Government regulations. I teach in Abingdon and Oxford, and all are welcome from beginners to more experienced students. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style. If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one).

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.

From 14th September I am planning to teach as follows:

ONLINE YOGA Mondays 7-8.15pm 

STUDIO DATES  Abingdon on Mondays 12.30, and on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm; and in Oxford on Tuesdays at 6pm    

 It's never too late to start whatever your level of fitness, or age  Read more about yoga here.

  • How pigeon pose helped my hip pain

    For a couple of months, I’d been mildly troubled by a low level ache in my left hip that  only comes on at night. Even six weeks in the heat of India recently didn’t seem to make the difference I’d hoped. When I came home to this winter’s freezing temperatures,...


  • What are the roots of yoga?

    Take enough yoga classes and you’ll eventually hear one of your teachers quote from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, an ancient guide to classical, or raja (royal), yoga. Written approximately two millennia ago, the text isn’t long – it is made up of 195 short one line aphorisms (called sutras). But it...


  • Tips for getting started at home

    As motivation, first about the benefits of your yoga!   You gain flexibility and mobility throughout the entire body. Plus strength and tone in your muscles. Learn to breathe deeply (we rarely practise this day-to-day). Help manage your stress levels. Release tension – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Let go...
