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.

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...
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...
