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.
