Yoga classes

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 you are new to Zoom and would like to try it out with me on a one-to-one basis, please get in touch

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 4 January until Saturday 13 February 2021
