Yoga classes

I offer a choice of online classes using  Zoom, or indoor studio classes with limited numbers set by the venues to meet current Covid requirements. All are welcome especially beginners and those looking for good stretch and chance to relax after work. I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness. If y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I am also able to offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions.

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 17 December 2020

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

  • Don't wrist hurting your hands

    Your hand is a complex thing.  It has no less than 27 bones and as a result many tiny joints. Each of your four fingers has three individual bones, while the wrist is made up of eight small bones known as carpals. They support a tube that runs through your...


  • Tune into your breathing

    Ujjayi (translated as “victorious”) breathing can be both energising and relaxing. The idea is to even out the breath by making a soft sound in the back of the throat, making it regular and smooth. The sound of Ujjayi is created by gently constricting the opening of the throat to...


  • Moving on by standing still

    This week we began in Mountain Pose (Tadasana), taking several moments to work through the body in complete stillness from the soles of the feet to the top of the head. Standing still can be quite hard work! Then we shook out any tension in the muscles, starting gently and...


  • Warm up first for deeper and better stretches later

    Over the years, I have put increasing emphasis on starting my classes with a warm up that moves all of the main joints in the body, before we start to do any posture work, especially anything involving deep stretching. The Dru style of yoga has developed many “activations” which are...
