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.

  • Why do yoga? No easy answers!

  • Tips for holiday practice!
