Yoga classes

I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style - beginners are always welcome. Two of my classes are ultra slow and gentle, and are aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.

If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.

On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week. 

On Tuesdays, I offer a new ultra slow and gentle class in Summertown at 2.30pm 'yoga for health', plus a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.

On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: a  ultra  slow and gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm.  Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight. 

DATES

The autumn term starts on Monday 9th September and runs every week up to Christmas.   For more details click 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.

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 yoga@lucytennyson.com 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!

  • Why we need strong muscles

    Most of us come to  yoga to stretch and become more flexible -  not realising it’s just as important to tone up and strengthen our muscles as well. We need strong and healthy muscles to move; to lift and carry things, or do exercise. It’s just the same when we’re...


  • Finding balance with yogaroma

    Like yoga, aromatherapy is a traditional form of healing, and like yoga it is holistic – it aims to work on the whole - mind, body and spirit. Aromatherapy essential oils are the natural, fragrant liquids found in nature. These oils, also referred to as “essences,” are botanical extracts of...


  • Why do yoga? No easy answers!

    The start of a new term of yoga is a good time to return to the core basics that underlie everything we do in class: Why practise yoga? And even ‘What is yoga?’ Whether you are a beginner, or have been doing yoga for years, there is no easy answer,...


  • Tips for holiday practice!

    It’s been a fabulous term of yoga with all of you, and I reluctantly bring my teaching to an end on Monday to go on holiday! I do hope you can come back in September, and we can continue to share our yoga together. I know it’s not the same...


  • A simple pose that goes deep

    Hero pose (in Sanskrit known as Virasana) is a simple seated pose, and a good way to start your personal practice. It can be done sitting on the heels, or made kinder on knees and ankles by sitting on two or three blocks placed between the ankles; the feet should...
