Yoga classes

I teach in a relatively gentle 'hatha' style to suit all ages and levels of fitness, and welcome beginners. I teach both in the studio (from mid June) and online using Zoom. I am now teaching Monday - Wednesday up to the end July. 

I returned to the studio in mid-June at St Ethelwolds in Abingdon,  with a new afternoon class at 2pm, focussing on movement and flexibility which welcomes beginners. The popular Wednesday evening classes start at 5.15pm and 7pm.  Numbers are currently restricted to six. I teach online using Zoom on Mondays at 6pm (all levels), and Tuesdays 5-6pm (beginners/gentle/stretch).

I teach outdoors when the weather allows.

  • How yoga can help us de-stress

    We all know that yoga – along with other forms of relaxation – can help with reducing stress levels. Stress is a normal body reaction to a sudden increase in demand when the brain perceives some kind of threat. The reactions include sweating, increased heart beat, the release of sugar...


  • The importance of stretching our hip joints

    There are lots of good reasons to do hip-opening poses – they help improve posture, enable us to walk or run more easily, and can sometimes help ease back pain. Our hips tighten up if we spend long periods sitting down, and yoga can go a long way to reverse...


  • Take a deep breath

Breathing exercises (pranayama) are regarded as important as physical postures (asana) and are an important stage towards meditation. In daily life, without being aware of it, it is easy...
