I teach in Abingdon and Oxford. My classes are open to all, from beginners to more experienced students, and taught in a relatively slow 'hatha' style. In addition, I run two ultra gentle classes aimed at older students and anyone with health issues looking for extra support and encouragement.
If y0u have specific health issues, I am also able to offer Yoga Therapy sessions (one to one) in my home studio in north Oxford (or your home by arrangement) on Monday, Thursday and Friday afternoons.
On Mondays, I offer two classes in Abingdon at 12pm and 7.30pm, in roomy studios: all levels welcome. Drop in any week.
On Tuesdays, I offer an ultra gentle class in Summertown at 4.15pm 'yoga for all', and a class in the city centre for Oxford University staff and friends at 6pm.
On Wednesdays, I offer three classes in Abingdon: an ultra gentle class at 3.45pm, plus two after work classes at 5.15 and 7.15pm. Booking is essential for these small group sessions in the Sanctuary at St Ethelwolds House where numbers are limited to eight.
DATES After a break at Whitsun from 27-31 May, the next term runs from Monday 2 June until the end of July. For more details click Timetable of classes
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.
Cost Drop in £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email [email protected] or call 0771 520 7784
Special rates for students in full time education who come with a parent. I have four mums and daughters currently coming to class. Dads and sons where are you? Come and try a class!

Blog and class notes Thursday 2 March 2017 Alignment is one area where yoga teachers don’t always see eye to eye …. Literally! When coming up from a standing forward bend, some will tell their students to uncurl ‘vertebrae by vertebrae’ with a rounded back. Others will insist that you...
Yoga blog and class notes 17 February 2017 Imagine a see saw perfectly balanced at the mid point with two people at either end – equal in weight for the see saw to remain level. A heavier person would need to move nearer to the middle to keep level, and...
Blog and class notes 9 February 2017Most of us are drawn to yoga because we want to become more flexible and maintain mobility. However, yoga tends to attract already flexible people, while those with tighter bodies can be put off (especially if the class brings out our more competitive edge!). Those...
Yoga blog and class notes 24 February 2017 Why go upside down? Doing an inversion is today regarded as a fundamental aspect of a yoga sequence, along with twists and forward and back bends. Even without realising it, you are already doing quite a few inversions, in which the head...
In some yoga classes, you might hear the teacher talk about ‘prana’, often in conjunction with thinking about or using the breath. This might be in terms such as ‘breathing in prana’, or ‘thinking about the prana (energy) flowing through the body’. In terms of a working definition, prana...
