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.

The medical benefits are always debatable of course, but certainly resting in a simple inversion with the legs raised against a wall or resting...
Most of the moves we make in our daily lives tend to involve bending forward; sometimes we twist round, and occasionally we move into a backbend. Unless we engage regularly in sports and activities like gardening (and perhaps housework!) we are far less likely to stretch and work the sides...
In this week’s class we explored the simple action of balancing on one leg – and soon discovered don’t need to tie ourselves into vertical knots to challenge our stability. We can make it harder just by turning a leg out to one side, or moving the gaze by rotating...
You may have noticed that we tend to do twists later on in class, often close to relaxation. They are also nice to include in a gentle warm up sequence. This is because they are neutralising poses, helping the body to stretch out and recover. They are good to include...
