Yoga classes

ONLINE YOGA

I am now teaching three classes a week online using the Zoom application. It's easy to use and if you have done some yoga before drop me an email using the contact form and I'll send you details.

Beginners

If you are a complete beginner or haven't done much recently, and like to try a 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.

My classes

Normally, 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).

The levels below are just a guide, as all of my classes are taken at a relatively slow pace, especially suited to the Zoom format where I limit numbers so I can still give tips and advice to you individually as we go.

ONLINE YOGA

Mondays Level 1  12pm-1pm 

Tuesdays Level 2  5pm-6pm

Wednesdays Level 3  6pm-7pm

DATES

This timetable will run through May and June. It may be possible if the current regulations change to teach outdoors in the summer.

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.

  • Pose of the month - camel

    Camel pose helps increases flexibility in the spine, stimulates the nervous system, opens the chest and shoulders, improves circulation and digestion, and stimulates the thyroid gland.  Like all back bends, it can be stimulating and boost blood flow to the face, for example – perhaps giving us all better complexions!...


  • What is face yoga?!

    What is face yoga? I’m sure the ancient yogis of India weren’t doing it, but face yoga is one of the newer trends to hit the world of modern yoga. Danille Collins has been running open workshops (see photo below) for the last few years at the Om Yoga Show...


  • A powerful earth salutation

    Those of you who come to my class regularly will know that there are many different kinds of yogas – that’s one of the great things about it – and that I like to borrow from various traditions. Last week, it was the four part breath of nature from Tai...


  • A safe way to forward bend

    Most yoga classes will include one or more forward bends. There are different kinds, and we do them because they create length and space in the spine, counteracting compression, and help in releasing the lower back muscles. They look simple, but I believe present just as much as a challenge...


  • 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...
