I am now on holiday for August. I am teaching some outdoor classes on an ad hoc basis on Mondays and Tuesdays in Abingdon and Oxford.
My teaching term restarts on 14th September, and I hope to be able to offer you a choice of online classes using Zoom, and indoor studio classes run according to Government regulations. 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).
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.
From 14th September I am planning to teach as follows:
ONLINE YOGA Mondays 7-8.15pm
STUDIO DATES Abingdon on Mondays 12.30, and on Wednesdays at 5pm and 7pm; and in Oxford on Tuesdays at 6pm

My class numbers almost dropped by half over the week’s heatwave. So much for ‘hot yoga’ then! But well done those that came and I hope no ill effects – do let me know. It prompted many of you to ask about ‘hot yoga’ … basically what is it and...
Taking the body upside down is thought to have a positive effect on four of the major systems of the body: cardiovascular, lymphatic, nervous and endocrine. The medical benefits are always debatable of course, but certainly resting in a simple inversion with the legs raised against a wall or resting...
