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 y0u have specific health issues,  or would like individual classes tailored to suit you, I can offer one to one Yoga Therapy sessions, either in person or via Zoom.

The next term of seven classes runs from Monday 2nd November until Thursday 24 December 2020

ALL CLASSES NOW ONLINE on Zoom DUE TO CURRENT LOCK DOWN 

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. I personally find Zoom a  good alternative to studio classes.  Read more about yoga here.

  • Time to reflect

    When I was driving home after my teaching my last class of the week on a cold and clear night, the moon was rising, hanging on its side over Abingdon. It was beautiful and strangely calming, and I wondered how many other people were looking up and feeling the same...


  • 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...
